I got a kick out of this tweet from Matt Thomas.

I have pointed out before times when the Texans dropped 7 into coverage and still got burned. It didn't matter. They blitz, thye get beat on the back end. They don't blitz, they get beat on the back end. The back end might be the only thing worse than the Texans pass rush.

As I said in the thread reporting Reed's comments, the Texans have been out-coached and out-played every time they have decided to put Ed Reed on the field. That just extends their poor decision making from the time they hired him.

Yep. This team is imploding. Going to be a 2-14 type season.

Maybe I'll go dig up the "Ed Reed signed" thread and serve up some crow to everyone who argued that Reed was a great signing.

I really hope he doesn't sign with some other team, and all the sudden regain his skills. If so, that will pi$$ me off. That would tell me he just wasn't all that into the Texans, and quit once he saw how the season was gonna go.

DJ Swearinger will be a great safety for us, maybe even pro-bowl material. He's one of the most promising players on our defensive squad.

Memo sent today:

Let that be a lesson to the rest of you that speaking your mind is not acceptable in this club. We want you to tell the media how well your coaches prepare you, and how you would run through a brick wall for them. Your coaches work hard to prepare you every week to consistently be close to winning, and they deserve your adoration and respect. Next time someone asks you about this team in the postgame, say you love "Coach Kubes" cause the media loves nicknames.

If we lose, be sure to blame abstract things like "they played a better game" or "not wanting it enough." We can't have dissent in the lockerroom, or it might lead to even more losses. Clearly Mr. Reed was not a team player, as evidenced by his comments the other day. He was a cancer, and is the reason we lost all these games. His undermining nature and pride have taken this team from Super Bowl contender to basement dweller. Now that we have that bit taken care of, you can bet this team will be in the playoffs next year. Soldier on good men, for next year Kubiak, Wade and Marciano will lead us to the promised land!

A couple things beyond the frustration of a gamble that really, really did not payoff this off-season:

1. They are getting him off the books now- instead of taking the hit next season, which is great.

2. This should also have a positive impact on the compensatory draft pick formula... Performance impacts the equation somehow. And, I'm sure being cut and only starting a couple games will lessen his value when the picks are rewarded to the Texans for the signings of: Barwin, Casey, Quin, Ball, Forsett, .

It's the best move the Texans could have made at this point... I'm glad they are willing to admit a mistake this quickly, at least- instead of keeping him around and attempting to justify it or hide it.

LOL at number 1
On number 2 - I don't think you get compensation if you cut someone

On your last point. Keo beat him out. That was embarrassing enough. I don't see any good spin here...but I gotta hand it to you and those sunshine pumpers.
