Its like the texans trying to make up all the loses we had in free agency by overpaying a past prime star.

Predictably, everybody eats it up because its a star player and all those loses in free agency are forgotten and all is ok.
Predictably Jules Winnfield disagrees with everybody.

Could get us over the top, could be a flop, just gotta see how it plays out man.

So you want to start Keo? Or sign Huff? Or a rookie?

Look deal in reality. GQ is GONE. By by. Adios. Not an option. Look at the intangibles.
You think Reed is scared of Brady and the Pats?
You think Reed is scared of Manning and the Broncos?

Hellllllllllllllllllll no!

I caught that "Manning and the Colts?" before you changed it. I still think of it like that too a lot of the time.

I don't know what the numbers and guaranteed money is and stuff, but I'm pretty certain they over-payed. Although he will be wearing a Ravens jersey in the Hall of Fame, will probably be the first player in the Hall that wore a Texans jersey.

Still a good pick-up for a relatively young team that needs leadership and staying grounded.

Please don't let him be Ahman Moulds.

See...now that we signed an older Safety for 2-3 years we won't need to draft another safety because we're putting all our hopes on Keo becoming a beast once he learns from Ed.

That MUST be the logic behind not drafting a Safety in our 2 Safety set.

I don't think Wade would be so foolish. Ed will stay high, playing centerfield. Manning is going to drop in the box ala Quin. The other guy Demps/Keo/(hopefully Brandon Harris) would drop down to play man in Dime packages.

Last year, for some reason we let Demps/Keo play centerfield. Most of the big plays were because Demps was sleeping, looking into the backfield.

That won't happen with Reed.

Moves like these rejuvenate me as a fan. Im so happy right now. All this ****talking the last two weeks finally has closure and the team a direction.

his locker room presence alone is worth the contract, say he does miss time with injury, him just being there will be a great deal of motivation.

lets just go get Urlacher and take a shot at this damn thing next year. lets make some noise with the old guys, one last hoorah!

Regardless of who we sign/draft, we need people to match up w these TEs that KILLED us last year.

No one is going to stop Gronk and Hernandez but damn, at least slow the bleeding. Make a play every once and a while.

Look Reed is gonna make mistakes. In his prime he made mistakes. I just think his intensity and leadership is very valuable to this young D that got starry eyed against Brady and Rodgers.

Urlacher is to old and slow.

Im not calling for a full time fix. another locker room guy that can show these young un's how its done. BU is still strong against the run and now that the Bears slapped him in the face maybe he has that fire to finish with a real contender. I'd love him on this team and you bet your ass that Wade could devise a game plan to utilize his strengths. Pipe dreams, isnt America great?! Nothing is gonna blow my high right now anyways, Reed amongst some was never going to happen too, and looky here.

Too much money for a brand name. I think this signing makes us more comfortable with safety then we should be hurting us even more in the draft. Somewhere there's a big sharpee that's been used for the name reed. We still need a safety in the top 4 rounds or so. He's a bandaide.

Urlacher is slower than Bradie James at this point. Don't want Urlacher anywhere close to this tea.
