They didn't have a hole in the defense until they let Quin go. Once they did that, they created a hole. Then they filled that hole with an older veteran who will probably play one final year. Bravo. They're right back where they started from. With the exception that had they signed Quin, they wouldn't be facing this again next year. Sorry, I'm not going to congratulate them for solving a problem they could have avoided.

As for the QB, too bad they panicked last season and now we are stuck. As for WR, we have the best one in football. But until we get another one, he's going to continue score fewer than 10 TDs a year.

http://www.rantsports.com/nfl/2013/0...ouston-texans/

Quote:
If any safety is forced to play in the box, it will be his new partner on the back end, Danieal Manning. Manning is so similar to Ravens’ last safety partner, Bernard Pollard, that he actually replaced him in Houston two seasons ago. It could be argued that Manning is actually better than Pollard at this point in his career.

Much of Reed’s time last season was spent covering for the Ravens’ depleted cornerback corps. Without Lardarius Webb, the defense was forced to adjust its approach. When Jimmy Smith was injured and under-performing, Reed was limited even more in the freelancing that he could do. In Houston, Reed will play inside two very talented cornerbacks in Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph. Both had their issues in 2012, but both should be able to rebound in 2013.

Joseph in particular will make Reed’s job easier. When healthy and performing, he is an elite talent who quarterbacks will hesitate to target. If Reed has a cornerback who he can forget about watching over on the back end, then the area on the field he is required to cover is diluted. A diluted field means less distance to travel for Reed when he reads the quarterback or reacts to throws. By proxy, that should allow him to get his hands on more footballs.
Almost gets me excited for Old n busted.

Reed at a right price is worth it. This cat could make key plays to lead Texans to a super bowl.

Also, He refused to make a comment. Pancakes is more upset than the time the guy in front of him at the McDonalds drive through got the last McGriddle.

Reed refused to speak to reporters: "Not tonight. I'll catch y'all tomorrow."

We chased Reed all the way to parking lot after waiting 3 hrs and wouldn't give us courtesy of even stopping.

For 34 years I've met All-Pros and Hall of Famers at airport and can't remember any of them refusing to comment.

Oh well. It only matters what Reed does on the field. He was so nice when we met him last week, though.

Texans are a better team with Reed. It will be official in morning when he signs 3 year deal.
LOL Pancakes is salty at Ed Reed.

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

I'm not crazy about signing Ed Reed. I'd rather seen the money spent on Dumervil. Watt and Dumervil on the same DL would've been insane. I hope Reed can find the fountain of youth and perform up to his contract, but I just don't see it happening.

Smith better damned well get Cush and Watt signed to extensions.

Still really excited about signing Reed and curious what they exact numbers are but 3 years seems to be too long considering his age.

McClain can be the biggest baby sometimes....... Let the man breathe, sign his contract, and then ask him all the questions you want. No one owes him anything no matter how much time he has covering the league.

If it's a 3 year deal, chances are he'd never make it to the 3rd year. They could have perked his interest by talking to him about moving into a coaching position.

Ed Reed's deal in Houston is for three years. Per source, Reed will make $6 million in Year 1.

Max value of Ed Reed's deal is about $15 million over three years ... And, again, around $6 million in Year 1.
