Reed was at Flemings on Alabama.

Get used to seeing him there. He lived at the one in Baltimore.

Not about Jacoby- he's the punt/KO returner. There are alot of younger WR's who ae ready to step up- Tandon Doss, Deonte Thompson, David Reed, etc...

Hard to speculate how the difference in scheme and surrounding personnel factors into such stats, but that looks fairly even to me, maybe a slight edge to Quin. Given youth and upside vs. risk of age-related decline, that's a little more edge to Quin.

Either way, any argument that Reed was a better player last year isn't supported by stats nor by what I saw. Believe what you want though. If the Texans sign him, there will be enough people complaining about it by next December that I won't even have to bump this thread.

Reed is a High risk high reward situation. His age and injury history is a huge concern - his play last year is a little concern.

The thing about him is: he is a game changer. He still is a ball hawk and he still is a great int returner. We can use that. Plus he has great instincts and QB still are kinda intimidated by him.

If we sign him I'm intrigued and worried. Wo knows what he has left in the tank and how motivated he will be. If we get the real Ed Reed we turn into instant contenders (if we can fix our right side).

Now that both have left your team you come in here proclaiming that they were terrible guys in the locker room with no leadership. Yeah, right... Sounds like sour grapes to me.

Default Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans

"Leadership" is so subjective.

This defense does not need a locker room cheerleader.

What it needs is a veteran presence that has been there / done that and keeps them from getting goofy before big games (letterman jackets anyone)? A guy like Reed can be a good presence in the huddle, when it matters most. Let them know that QBs like Brady and Manning are still human and can be beat. This defense lost it's attitude when Cushing went down. I love Watt, but he's sort of a Gomer Pyle as a leader. Gosh shucks right now, and just too young of a player to have the experience and insight on how to push buttons and keep his squad focused on the task at hand. Reed might be that kind of veteran presence that is an intangible and can make all the difference.

No question you said you thought the Texans fans saw Pollard as a cancer (which is bull****) and you're implying that Ed Reed will be a cancer (which is bull****). Nothing but ungratefulness on your part, tearing down a star player that helped bring your team a Super Bowl win. Now you're here trying to rain on the Texans day for trying to sign the guy. It's pathetic on your part and you have nothing to support him being a "cancer".

It's no wonder you're here, I bet the Ravens board ignores your posts if this is the kind of crap you bring to the table.

No contract--Not from us and not from anyone else for that matter.

He might actually be reading books, though, rather than walking. But he's not going to play here unless he plays for pennies on the dollar...which is why he hasn't signed anywhere yet (because nobody wants him for what he thinks he's worth).

Dude will play for us for vet minimum or for some other team. Whether that other team pays him vet minimum, or just a bit more than vet minimum, or more than we think he'd get, is not the issue. He currently has no home. He's as "walking" as you can get without being having his thumb permanently in the air on the side of the road.
