You bring in a guy with a lot of know how and a strong personality, and get your panties in a twist when he starts speaking up.
This organization should feel shame.
I think John McClain nailed it on NFLN last night.
If Reed had been playing great, he could get away with saying whatever he wants to say.
But playing bad combined with speaking out is what got him fired.
And when you take into account the money aspect, it's just business.
Also, fwiw, McClain said the Texans had no idea about the hip surgery when hey signed him. The relationship soured after this point, and not being a Wade Phillips favorite (much less a bad fit for his defensive scheme), McClain thinks they saw the potential for Reed to sour things within the locker room.
The whole situation is just reeks of inept and really just part of a crappy season all the way around.
