Lewis was in Florida rehabbing his torn triceps, so it was Reed and Bernard Pollard who openly confronted their coach in front of the team, kicking off what players have described as a "group therapy session" in which they were able to air a number of grievances and frustrations."
And now Pollard is released. You guys didn't like Pollard and thought he was a cancer. Now you want Ed Reed.
Okay, now that's an outright LIE.
Bernard was well respected here because he brought intensity to the game and expected it from his teammates. He just couldn't cover worth a damn. And at the time we were still playing the Forehead twice a year. Not a good situation.
