Default Re: Ed Reed released

Quentin Demps is starting on one of the better defenses of the season.

I think it would be interesting if Reed is starting this week, or even next.

Lastly, how can someone be upset with a coaching staff allowing him to do whatever he wants to do? I can understand being upset that he was demoted, but that was totally in his power to control. All he had to do was make a play... instead, he continued to get hurdled.

Unfortunately we have world full of people with Ed Reed's mentality. Anything is ok for the almighty dollar. Anyway McNair is rich. He can afford it.

You have one of the most respected defensive coordinators in the league. And now we are finding out that a player was basically forced on him. A player that he did not think fits his scheme. Wade will never come out and say it. He's a professional and team player.

But, it does make sense when it never looked like Reed belonged in this defense, both with limited range from his surgery and the way he was being implemented. Then read his words that go him into trouble. He was obviously not happy with being benched, but there was something else to it, like a dissatisfaction with both the coach and scheme.

Screw Reed and screw the Jets. I'm not going to root for either of them out of spite. I'm a Texans fan, regardless of the coaching staff, and I'm certainly not going to bandwagon some freakin' yankee team that I've never liked just to make some kind of statement. Screw that noise.
Couldn't have said it better myself. MSR.

He is wearing 22 for the Jets. At least he didn't pull an Asomugha and pitch a b!tch about his jersey number.

Still, I despise him.

Just shows how horrible this organization is. Wade has forgotten more than Rick Smith will ever know about defensive football, and wasn't consulted. Idiots ...

James Palmer ‏@JPalmerCSN 9m

Obviously Phillips did meet with Ed Reed during Reed's visit. So he's included in a way. Just said he wasn't involved in discussions.

IMHO Rick Smith has always considered himself the DB Guru of the Texans and Ed Reed was Rick's baby.

Yeah. I don't often agree with you but this is a friggin fact. Right now I want them all in a self-preservation "feeding frenzy" climbing over each other to get out of the burning building. I want them all dropping one another in the grease and spilling all the secrets.

I want to see Wade Phillips stand up in front of cameras and say "I don't even KNOW THESE *******S!" Like Ash from "Army of Darkness".

Rick Smith has made some good moves in his time. he's also made some dreadful moves and he shouldn't be allowed to weasel out of the consequences of that.

All I Really Need To Know About Football learned by playing Madden 07 <---linky

And then there's this, from Madden himself:

Quote:
Madden on 'Madden'

Q: How have you seen the game evolve to where now high school players are actually learning offenses and defenses from your game?

John Madden: I think that's big, and it's not only for high school kids. I was with my 8-year-old grandson the other night while he was playing, and it's amazing how much they know now at such a young age. You don't have to wait until high school to get to know the plays and the rules now. Kids can call out rules quicker than someone inside the game can, and it's just amazing to me the knowledge of young players. And then for the high school kids, this is how they're learning how to play. That's why it's important for us to have the right way to play in the game.

Full Article

Madden describes himself as "never a good player" of Madden NFL, and prefers to watch others play. Although retiring from broadcasting in 2009, he nonetheless continues to participate in each Madden's development:

He breaks down upcoming rules changes. He brings up concussions, helmet-to-helmet hits and gimmick quarterbacks. A digression on how the Dome Patrol-era Saints used to frustrate Bill Walsh's 49ers teams with short linebacker drops becomes a lecture on the obsolescence of the fullback, which then morphs into a short aside on player character.

Coaches and players have said that Madden has influenced their play, and football broadcasts on television use Madden-like visual cues to more closely resemble it. The NFL reportedly considers the series its "33rd franchise", because each week during the season EA Sports receives the same searchable film database of every play that each of the league's 32 teams do.
