Default Re: Ed Reed released

Not shocked he was released, but I am a bit surprised about the timing. Given his comments, I'm sure that will shut down public comments from the other players.

I don't know what to think. In some cases, you can stink it up big time, and that extends to the coaches, and you get chance after chance. In other cases, you're given the ax after telling the truth. I fail to see the consistency from upper management.

I want Bullock gone just as much as the next guy but when you throw your coaches under the bus, there is no room for that in the Texans organization. I like the move. If he was playing pro-bowl football it may have changed it a bit but when you have lost your starting job because you are no longer good at what you do then you shouldn't be calling anyone out.

The rest of this years salary and another $1.333m that would have gone on next years but should now be on this years cap.

Sounds about right but rather than having $1.333m on next years tab , its effective today.

Default Re: Ed Reed released

According to @PFF, Ed Reed missed 22.2% of his tackles, so of his $6M contract, about $1.3M was for missing tackles.

Ed Reed made $375,000 per tackle and $22,000 per snap while playing for the Houston Texans.

Even if he was correct?

We have been saying for years this team is outcoached - almost every game.

You know that was a very special moment for that player. He can tell his grandkids one day that he hurdled a Hall of Famer. Obvious highlight of his pro football career. I know it was special for me as a fan.

Alright, now I'm pissed. I don't care that the guy was at the bottom of the league in safety play. You had a leader with championship experience put into words the very issues that have become obvious to attentive fans, and instead of sitting him down and maybe learning something from him you trashcan him. The money was already paid... why not utilize the only tool he had left -- his brain.

This tells me Wade is intransigent in his play calling and lack of adjustments. And it sends the message to vets to keep their mouths shut or get cut. That contributes to a leadership void.

I honestly can't believe they cut Reed instead of Bollock. I mean, did they even try Ed at kicker? Probably not knowing this joke of a franchise!

We've basically become a joke this year. Reed wasn't very good on the field, but IMO there have been worse performers. Time to clean house after this year.

Ed cannot walk on the wild side like Lou could. The Eagles are missing wild side, so Ed is just not a good fit.
