Me too.

Billick was on MAD Radio yesterday and definitively, without hesitation said Reed will be there week 1 (unless there is something he doesn't know).

Said Reed's a veteran who takes care of his body, etc, etc; essentially, Reed is sitting out all of the unnecessary (for him) training camp/preseason stuff to get healthy to play the season.

Who gives a ****. We didnt sign Ed Reed to help us beat Rivers and Locker. We got Ed Reed to help us beat Brady and Manning. We need him to play the last 8 games, not the first 8. And even if he is done for his career worst case scenario is that he gets his 6 million this year and is on his merry way.

I believe this is what accomplished vets do, so I'm not too worried about it.


At the same time, this is the same thing I said about Ahman Green. His body's a temple, yadda, yadda, yadda. What I did not expect was for his game performance to have dropped so much. I'm not expecting Ed Reed to be All-Pro form, but if he turns out to be a liability..... damn.

If Ed Reed were with the team, joking around on the sidelines, and participating in all ways that don't involve hitting, I might be inclined to agree with some of you. As it is, he's off visiting docs and showing no real signs of improvement. Hell, we got a statement the other day that he might be "just ahead of schedule", but there was no schedule established.

You people believe that this is Ed being Ed all you want. Father Time waits for no man. Reed's old, he's seriously injured, and old bodies don't heal like young bodies. It was a bad signing. Would rather have paid Glover Quin the same damn money and be sitting with Manning and Quin as starters at safety right now than be thinking about Keo or Pleasant as starters.

What a mess this is.

For some reason, I just can't shake the feeling that this

There's no way I'd have paid glover instead of picking up reed.

I'd rather have Swearinger learning whatever he can from Ed and Ed will play.

Agreed. I liked Glover. Seemed like a solid player back there, but not a game changer. I firmly believe that Swearinger can come up and play the run as good or better than Glover right now. Not to mention that Glover would be on the books for another 4 years while we are trying to find money for Cushing and Watt while Reed can be wiped from the books.

If you want to hire Ed Reed as a coach, do it. Hiring him as a player was a bad move.

You keep the best players. At this stage of their respective careers, Quin is better than Reed. He was marginally better than him last year and he's way better than an injured Ed Reed that never suits up. Swapping Quin for Reed did not make the football team better. I'm a fan of Swearinger, wanted him on draft day, but Manning, Quin, and Swearinger looks a helluva lot better to me than Manning, Keo, and Swearinger, with Reed sitting on IR.

I dunno, I guess I'm crazy like that.

Hmm. I certainly saw him at training camp and he came out of the tunnel w/ Andre against the Fins. "Off visiting docs" isn't always a bad thing. I don't expect him week one and won't be worried until after week 4.

Yeah you and your crazy ideas about keeping the best players! You loco!

What are your thoghts on keeping money available for next year and Cushing/Watt signings? Reed can be off the books after this year. Quin would be on for another 4 years at a vets 2nd contract price.

What upsets me more than anything, is that wherever he is, I bet he's wearing purple.

6 in one hand.....

If we didn't make this move, we wouldn't have picked up Dj Swearinger & I like Reed, Manning, Swearinger, Keo, better than I like Manning, Quin, Keo, Pleasant on game day.

Yeah, if you truly believe that, you're crazy.


If it turns out that Reed doesn't play for us, then yeah, the FO should have listened to you. But where we are right now, the back half is better off the way it is now.

& I love Quin. He'll most likely be voted to the pro bowl this year, imo. But he's a different player. Quin, Manning, & Swearinger are all the same player, we needed to get away from that & add a player like Reed.

This is silly. Has nothing to do with nothing. If they wanted to keep Quin, they could have & sign Cushing & sign Watt. If they want to, they'll find a way, they always do.

You just got done telling me that the Texans could sign Quin, Watt and Cushing if they wanted to. Then that they have someone who knows how to manage the cap when sometimes managing the cap means not signing a Glover Quin for 5 years 23 million.

I am not saying they HAD to pass on Quin to get Cushing and Watt, but that it might be a good idea when you are going after guys that are going to command alot of money. But I guess that is "silly" to you.
