Modesty apparently not among Bernard Pollard’s gifts

Bernard Pollard AP

In the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl which we’re nearly halfway through, the crush of media will tell us everything we need to know about the players and coaches in the final football game of the season.

Sometimes, we’re told too much.

In a profile of Ravens safety Bernard Pollard by Scott Cacciola of the New York Times, we learn, among other things, that Pollard is averse to clothing.

Pollard’s confidence is apparently expressed by his willingness to do interviews while unclad, with Cacciola noting “Pants are the enemy.”

OK then.

The local media presented Pollard with a pair of boxer shorts when they gave him their “good guy” award for being professional in dealing with them in 2011, and his “teammates have encouraged him to use a towel or two.”

Maybe he was going to buy a robe with the money he was fined ($15,250) for hitting Wes Welker last week.

Maybe he just digs on being nude. As long as he doesn’t go Zeke Mowatt, most people in the locker room don’t care. That’s yet another reason why reporters carry note pads.

    Reminds me of the great SNL skit with Lorraine Newman in the NBA locker room. Sorry youngsters this one won’t resonate.

    He’s referring to when he was with the Pats and a few guys harassed a female reporter in the locker room in like 1990 or somewhere close to there. They all got fined and whatnot.

    Gore and Kaepernick need to have their heads on swivel with this lurking back there. He is an old school SS.

    Pollard is like Suggs. A good player but a complete and embarrassing moron.

    Signed,
    Every human being on planet earth.

    How does his lack of modesty affects his play on the field?

  14. letemplay says: Jan 26, 2013 2:02 PM

    It’s cool. He has other gifts. Painful gifts.

    If called go Goodell’s office, I hope he shows up immodest.

    The you more hear about this dude and the more he speaks the more is the jerk he plays like. Rules are rules put some clothes on, turn the brain on, turn off the big ego and grow up.

    If they draft Manti we might have a love connection.
