Ed Reed certainly chose a strange time to offer constructive criticism of his fellow Ravens.

The star safety was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday, when he spoke candidly about quarterback Joe Flacco and Baltimore's offense. The Ravens beat the Texans on Sunday to advance to the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, but the offense struggled for long stretches against Houston, managing nearly as many punts (nine) as first downs (11).

"I think Joe was kind of rattled a little bit by that defense," Reed said (via ProFootballTalk.com). "They had a lot of guys in the box on him. And, I mean, they were getting to him. I think a couple times he needed to get rid of the ball.

"I don't know how much of the play-calling, he could have made audibles or anything like that, checks or whatnot, man, but it just didn't look like he had a hold on the offense, you know, of times past. You know, it was just kind of like they was telling him to do, throw the ball or get it here, you know, get it to certain guys. And he can't play like that."

Reed also called on the big men in front of Flacco to step up their game.

"(The) offensive line's got to block better," Reed said. "You know, they got to communicate better, got to pick up blocks, Joe's got to get the ball out of his hand."

It's worth noting that in asking for improved play from his quarterback and O-line, Reed basically is doing the same thing that led many to label Santonio Holmes an incurable cancer in the Jets' locker room. Reed obviously has stature within his team that Holmes couldn't dream of, which perhaps makes this OK.

That said, the timing seems odd and certainly does little in helping Flacco in his eternal quest to be respected.

I honestly think Kareem is headed down the same path as Duane Brown. He played very well in the playoffs, I think (hope) with OTA's and a full training camp he'll be a legitimate CB#2.

The Texans D absolutely dominated this game. Only 3 points givin up in the final 46 minutes or something like that.? The 3 yd TD drive was a gimmie, obviously and the other TD was a very short field as well. 9 punts and only 11 first downs!! Absolutely this DEFENSE dominated.

I'm a bit surprised Reed would do this. These are the kinds of comments that usually don't get outside the locker room.

...unless it's the Jets

Default Re: Ed Reed says Texans D rattled Flacco

Honestly I'm not reading this as a knock on Flacco. What i read is that the O-line needs to block better, a very valid point, AND that the coaching staff held Flacco back, telling him exactly what throws to make, what reciever to hit, and that Reed thinks that this is detrimental to Flaccos playing style.

All fair and valid points, but let's see if the Ravens coaching staff agrees

If we can get a serious NT, improve our safety play (I like Glover and Manning but if there is a play-making safety to be had you take him), and bolster our ILB depth, I think we will be fine on defense.

Honestly at this point it's the offense that worries me. We probably need to scrap all of our receivers not named Andre and start new there, but I believe with how complicated the routes receivers run in this offense that may be too difficult to do in the offseason. I think this season shined light on our need for a new FB who can bulldoze defenders and not just get in both their and the ball carriers way. I always believe you take a lineman in the draft no matter what your situation, there's just too many bodies needed at that one spot to neglect. Caldwell also showed that it wouldn't hurt trying to find an upgrade for him.

Well, some people are just idiots. How anyone with half a brain could watch that game and not come away impressed with our defense is beyond my comprehension and indicative of proof of stupid.

I've heard more praise on a national level for our D than at any other point. If this unit and coaching staff stays intact, and I expect that it will with some upgrades here or there, I think the defense alone will elevate expectations for the Texans in 2012.

Watching "America's Game" about the 2000 Ravens the other night, and Ray Lewis said they had three key points that were stressed as important that season: great defense, good running game, and avoid turnovers. I think the Texans can be that kind of team next season.

I think Sharpton coming back from IR will help quite a bit with the first part. That will at least give us Sharpton as the main backup and Dobbins for run situations (injury is obviously still a concern).

As for the second part, I think Walter is still a very good possession receiver, but I would love to see a home run threat (who actually catches the ball) as the #2, and Walter as the #3 (depending on the situation). Walter is great for moving the chains and with Andre and a speedster to open up more room, should still be very effective.

I think Ed Reed missed the mark on his criticism of Flacco. First and foremost he should have gone off on him about that 70's porn stache. I mean Flacco looks ridiculous!!!!!
