    I liked it. The flag sucked, but big hits will make WRs think twice for going up for that ball or cutting across the middle. Getting into the opponents head is a good thing.

    Bacarri Rambo is horrible, but I didn't think he should've been flagged when he shoved Greene out of bounds.

    Refs have been and always will be inconsistent.

    I thought there was no chance the Rambo play was a flag.

    Pollard 's hit was borderline. The guy was falling out of bounds, so it was probably an unnecessary hit, but it definitely wasn't late.

    I think he picked up some easy money from Greg Williams

    It was the only thing he did in this game. I agree with setting the tone, but how about making a stop ON the field? At least it was just a preseason game.

    Exactly. We are gonna create a bad boy image by getting free-be flags in meaningless games to prove to surrounding players, we here to play, and kill. Simple. It looked entirely intentional with reason to me. He's letting the players know... Couple plays after that, I think it was fokou nearly decapitated the rb on a second hit... And he was talking ish after ward as well.. #OneLove

    I would personally bet Pollard makes another similar hit (flag or not) in the next game as well.

    That is exactly what Pollard did...

    ...then he hit the guy and got 15 more yards.
