Matt Cassel Likes Bernard Pollard

LaddCorrespondent IMarch 4, 2009

This is what Matt Cassel said about new teammate and Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard in his introductory press conference:

“Oh gosh. Now he is a teammate and I know that it wasn’t intentional. Nobody likes to see anybody go down, I’m sure including himself. I will talk to him and say hello, say thank you for the opportunity, but you never want to see anybody get hurt out there.”

I don’t get it. Why is everybody surprised that Cassel said this?

Wouldn’t he have had a clipboard and a very thin wallet for the rest of his life if Brady hadn't gotten hurt? And wasn’t Pollard the guy who injured Brady?

Doesn’t this mean that Pollard is responsible for his newfound riches? Stop playing mind games with me.

I’m very smart and exhibit grace under pressure. Like a Hemingway protagonist.

Where can I comment?
