Late to the party, but I guess Swearinger's play is what ultimately justified the move.

Sorry to see you go, Ed. Would have liked to have seen you win another ring with Andre.

Man, if you can't take a little criticism you gotta get some stones. This goose-step or the highway type thin skin isn't very flattering.

His release should make the players more mentally tough, at least voicing conerns to media.

Again who have you worked for that you can bad mouth your boss or company and get away with it? A little criticism? Get out of here with that. In an employer/employee relationship its never going to go well for the employee

I've always been able to criticize my superior's strategy. Perhaps I've only worked for smart, secure people.

I was in my truck and heard a teaser on my station. "A future Hall of Famer is cut by the Texans today. Details at noon." == My first thoughts, "Why did they cut Andre Johnson, why would they do that." It was five minutes before I realized who it was.

Man this organization gets more pussified by the minute. Finally a player has the balls to call this organization out on how trash they've been and they're to butt hurt to take it so they release the guy. Meanwhile, Bulluck and Marciano are still on this team since they are good little boys who dont speak bad about management.

The Texans needed a cancerish player at this point to call out the team. That's been the problem here for 8 years. No accountability from the owner, to the GM, to the coach, and to the fans.

I guess that management is going to use Reed as a scapegoat now and Many fans will buy into it and be sympathetic towards this coaching staff. Lol!

Thanks EdReed for being the only player on this team in 8 years to havsay things like they are.

C'mon, man, pro football is a business unlike most.

When the owner of the team comes out and basically says they are signing a veteran player to teach the rest of the team mental toughness, are you really believing a pro football franchise is just like Exxon or Walmart or wherever?

"[W]e have the opportunity to bring in someone that can add a dimension to our team that really, really feels a need that we have. Its not often that we have that opportunity. Weve talked before about the fact that as we get into the playoffs, we have to have that level of mental toughness that will allow us to handle the increased pressures that are taking places in that point in time. In order to do that, we need to have veteran leadership on the field."
~ Bob McNair


So that whole leadership angle was only valid if he was going to tow the company line?

This is a sinking ship, but they want to act like it's all sunshine and rainbows on Kirby. Give me a break. We've seen this before, and it's just sprinkles on a dog turd. It's not brownie. It's sprinkle covered poo.

I hope Ed comes out and lays it bare now that he's got nothing to lose. This FO needs to be blown up and replaced. Going from a playoff season to 2-7 is pathetic. No more excuses for status quo.
