He plays to a different drummer. All those foolish laterals that would have gotten a lesser safety benched. But...Ed is Ed. A good HC recognizes that and realizes the little bad of "bad" is far outshined by the good.
Granted, Reed is nowhere near his glory days self. Injuries have taken their toll. But he was probably the smartest Raven ever when it came to looking at game film and diagnosing problem areas and how to counter them. Instant HOF'er when his time comes.
I wish him well......just not today!
I agree with everything you wrote but man, when he was wrong, he was really wrong...and it looked bad
