Bernard Pollard: Broncos cut off hot water in showers

The NFL has seen the likes of SpyGate, BountyGate, and, most recently, PlaybookGate.

Allow Bernard Pollard to introduce ShowerGate.

In comments made to ESPN.com, the Titans’ veteran safety accused the Broncos of turning off the hot water after last year’s matchup at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

“You know the hot water was working before the game, then all of a sudden after the game it’s not working?” Pollard said. “They are bringing in millions or almost billions of dollars a year. I’m sorry, but that was a switch that was hit. Just like the Super Bowl [lights], that was a switch that was hit.”

The game, which Denver won 51-28, was held on Dec. 8 amid freezing temperatures — 18 degrees at kickoff. Pollard, for what it’s worth, recorded seven tackles in the contest.

Never one to hold his tongue, Pollard’s conspirical sour grapes are duly noted. The teams don’t square off again until 2016, when the Broncos will visit LP Field.

As a precaution, Denver might want to pack a generator. Better to be safe than dripping cold … or something.

  • did Pollard actually injure 3 different Patriot star players while he played for 3 different teams & causing them to lose extended playing time (Brady,a season; Gronkowski almost a whole season, Welker ?)

      Pollard is a football player. The Patriots fear him.

      The hit on Brady was clean. He still had the ball in his hand and Pollard had an OL on his back and still made a play. The tackle on Gronkowski was clean. Welker tore his ACL side-stepping Pollard because he’s scared of him. Another under-rated defensive player that the league likes to pick on.

        He also knocked Ridley out (fumble) that turned the AFC championship in the Ravens favor two years ago. He’s just a hard hitter.

    I miss Pollard as a Raven. Any wonder the Ravens won a SB with Reed and Pollard at safety. Just like the Steelers did with Palamalu and Ryan and the Seahawks. Now the Ravens have Matt Elam. Second year. Going to be a star player.

  • concretejimmy

    Titans defense improved with Pollard in the backfield.
