This would be a great move for Texans. Reed is one of my favorite players. Even being long in the tooth the guy seems to make plays when needed and to step up at the right time. You can always use a hard nosed vet running the defensive backfield.

You are taking the player's (more specifically his agent's) side of the story too much. if the agent told Smith that Quin wanted to go to market either way or the talks indicated that there was a pretty good gap bewteen what Quin was demanding why would Smith make a formal offer that Quin and his agent would spin as insulting well below market value and not sign?

BTW, I am for a player like Quin getting every nickle he can from the market. He did not get the silly signing bonus, and this is probably his only chance to get anywhere "never having to work post football" money.

Default Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans

I'll preface my remarks by saying I am an Ed Reed fan but that I have been disappointed with his play over the last 4-5 years. I say that because everything hasn't always been 'peaches n cream' here in Baltimore. I am not a 'disgruntled Baltimore fan'- I am pretty objective when it comes to my own team.

#1- Ed Reed hasn't been able to 'wrap up' or 'tackle' anyone since his neck impingement. Too many times over the last few years we have watched Ed go in for the big hit only to see the WR bounce off Ed and walk into the endzone.

#2-Too many times over the last few seasons, we have watched Ed "gamble" instead of staying within the scheme or defense called, that leaves a DB on an island/one on one, that results in a big play.

#3- Ed has been about himself over the last few years; will he retire, will he not? It has played out over the last few seasons and I for one, am tired of it.

#4- Ed has never been tight with John Harbaugh, the former DB coach turned HC, and when the Mike Silver article came out, both he and Pollard were id'ed as the ringleaders. Harbaugh doesn't like that; he carries a grudge, he doesn't like to be challenged.

Thats why Ed is on the plane to Houston right now.

Amazing that the ravens were able To win the superbowl with garbage Flacco, stupid jacoby, can't cover pollard, way over the hill ray Lewis, egocentric harbaugh, gimpy stupid Suggs and now the newest addition can't do anything Ed Reed.

Simply astonishing that a team with that many players holding them back (not to mention without their best corner) could manage to make the play offs let alone win on the road twice against the best QB's of this era in lieu to a superbowl win.

The team posted that Rick smith is in mcnair's private jet right now picking up Ed reed. I personally think that it's pretty much already a done deal.

Agree 100%. In our big games we shrunk under pressure. We have no real calming veteran influence to get young guys to settle down and play ball. Would love to get a few guys who have won in big situations to come in here and team with our youth.

I agree, and I have a really strange feeling we'll try to re-structure and extend Smith, and still make a play for Woodson. With the way Woodson has been used they all would still be on the field a ton together. Just a hunch on that one.

Sounds pretty good to me. The Texans need to sign either him or Woodson, the thought of Keo back there just makes me wanna hurl.

Not agreeing with him at all..see my statements above..just posting for viewpoint

Lance Zierlein ‏@LanceZierlein

As someone who has followed Houston sports my entire life, a signing of Ed Reed would feel a lot like the addition of Barkley by Rockets
Quote:
Lance Zierlein ‏@LanceZierlein

Rockets were trying to keep their window of opportunity open with Barkley but he added zero to their future hopes. Reed feels band-aidish

I get where Lance is coming from, but we teamed Barkley up with and old and quickly aging unit at that time. It was a bad marriage. The situations are different to me as well.

Yeah, they were 10-6 in regular season, a 4th and 29 in Sandiego away from collapsing, a 70 yd bomb lucky in Denver, and a non called DPI in the SB away from failure....

Coachspeak- thats some serious bullshart right there.

Jared Gaither was his first example. Other guys left as soon as they could in FA. Ellerbe was in Harb's ''doghouse'' all last year, starts this year, gets big FA deal in Miami, McKinnie on the bench this year, Pollard release, etc...more examples...

But those are the kinds of things that need to happen to win SB's these days..rare do teams dominate from start to finish these days...the last team i remember like that was probably one of those 90's cowboys teams.

Is it to late to release Keo and bring Nolan back ??? This FO and some of their choices makes me question their thought process.

Can't complain because they won a SB but the Cowboys lit them..Ravens D.. up last year in a loss...481 yards, 221 on ground. Romo was 25 of 36 and 261 and 2 TDs. So...
