Our dear Bernard Pollard has been playing his heart out. I won't doubt that.... but is he really the right guy for our SS position?? Pollard is a hittier (hence: "Bone Crusher"), but is he the SS that we need?

 

We look at a guy like Troy Palamalu, Brian Dawkins, Bob Sanders, etc etc... And quite frankly, Jarrad Page is fitting that mold a bit more than #49. Page has 4 INTs, 80 tackles, and 2 FFs. He's playing like a progressing Safety.

Now, I'm not saying Pollard is playing like sh*t at the position. He's doing a decent job (w/ 92 tackles, 2 FFs, and 1 INT). BUT...  imagine how many more tackles he'd have and would have made if (hear me out for a second) he were a Linebacker.

 

As a Safety, as you all know, he's playing 10-12 yards off the line of scrimmage. So, Pollard finds himself on a constant pursuit. If he were a LB, he'd be able to utilize his hitting abilities and speed a lot better.
