There is, however, evidence that Manning was interested in the Texans. LINK

I was one of the guys that wasn't the least bit interested in Manning. and I've been kicking myself in the ass since around week 12 of last year.

As far as Ed Reed is concerned, hand him a ball cap and a clipboard and let him provide leadership from the sideline and usher him into the coaching phase of his career.

ALERT: The Texans Rick Smith will announce this afternoon that the Texans have signed and decided to go next game with a free agent free safety. The move is expected to significantly upgrade the centerfield secondary.

He has something other texans players don't have outside old legs that's a super bowl ring. Can't make fun of that fact but Ed can make fun of good ol Bob for signing him to millions at his current state. Oh wait a minute texans fans lets throw the shots at the people that are making these dumb decisions... can't blame a washed up player for wanting to get paid whiling playing.

Ed Reed was a mistake before the Texans signed him. This became crystal clear when Baltimore showed no real desire and made no effort to re-sign Ed. #AnotherSmubiakFail

Edward was probably going to retire but I can't blame him for taking free money. I'm assuming that was Bob's decision to sign Edward but it of course back-fired like most times owners make personnel decisions. Let's hope he learns from that and stops trying to have us sign washed-up old men from now on. If he wanted us to watch a broken-down senior citizen struggle and get burned in the secondary he could've put a uniform on himself for a game or something.

it happens so rarely that it's hard for me to admit, but i was wrong.
*gasp!* *shock!*

i know, i know. i thought reed, despite being a one legged dinosaur, would be the answer against teams going downfield against us. he's not. he's not an answer to anything but "who just tricked the texans into a fat retirement payday?". we still have denver and new england on the schedule, the two teams i wanted us to sign reed for, so i may pretend i didnt post this if some miracle happens. as of right now though ... come back glover quin!!!

McNair sent his private jet to go fetch Ed Reed for a looksee. The Ed Reed acquisition is on Uncle Bob.

Thanks for the link. The signing of Reed is the only acquisition I'd attribute to Bob, the rest are obviously Rick Smith and Kubes.

Ed's coverage is so bad that it just seems like the QB isn't throwing his way. In fact, his man is so far gone the QB doesn't need to throw anywhere near him.

Good stuff..... I know it looks really bad, but in that situation I have to believe that's what they are "supposed" to do. Not get fooled by the QB, but play off the run action. The LBs & Safeties in that situation should be reading the FB & RB.... that's what they do there.

In this case, Joe Mays is reading the RB, he should have shot that gap created by McClain taking that jab step to his right. He would have been on top of Charles, instead of getting washed out by the FB. He'd have seen Charles didn't have the ball & attacked the QB.

Reed is watching Charles as well. How's he supposed to know Mercilus was going to play patty cake with him? Had Reed played that gap, Charles would have scored a TD & we'd be blaming Reed anyway.

The big fail on this play, imo, is that Mercilus is playing soft. He should have attacked Smith. If he'd have pinned his ears back, Smith would have been sacked at the time he faked the phantom hand off.

The whole left side of that play....... smh.
