Nah - some people are in the "anger" stage of grieving. Wanting the club to suffer would fit that huh?

Unfortunately Ed isn't a good fit if you want coverage these days either.

If Reeds comments didn't shed light on the sorry state of affairs in Texans land then our franchise WR, marching off the field in the manner he did, certainly has.

We are slap stick comedy along side the Jets, Jaguars and Bucs...

Say what you want about Reed's time here, but this dude is saying a lot of things that have been on my mind for some time.

He sucked here. There's no doubt about it. But he's right on about the organizational and coaching problems that we have here. The fact that he sucked doesn't change that.

And the fact that we have huge coaching and organization issues, doesn't change that he sucks!

Used to be a big Ed Reed fan ...

... but now, the guy is just embarrassing himself. He's lashing out in a very low-rent, cheesy way. Regardless of how bad a fit he was for "Wade's system", Reed played terrible - terrible for any system. He did not tackle, got beat in coverage, made 0 plays of any kind. He also failed to do anything with his influence - other than to divide, disrupt and create drama. Even after this latest rant, it is still difficult to tell what specific issues he has with "Wade's system" or the Texans -- other than Wade did not kiss his a55. The bottom line, after it is all said and done is that Ed Reed sucked as a safety. Now, he's trying to save his reputation from the reality that he stole $5,000,000.00+ from the Texans organization.

Really **** Ed Reed. **** him.

That said, what Reed is saying isn't the embarrassing part. It's the fact that we rolled out the red carpet...made a spectacle of it all...put the man in the owners jet.

But really, there is probably some truth in what he's saying.

I'm pretty sure McNair was embarrassed sitting up in the suite with two former presidents and all his people and seeing his stadium turn into a clown show filled with boos and disgust. Having players walk off the field.

I know McNair had to do a woo sah to calm down.

Absolutely ... the most embarrassing thing about the Ed Reed mess is how the Texan's brass rolled out the red carpet and treated him like football royalty - with the owner's jet ... etc.

I am also sure there is some truth somewhere in his vague criticisms of Wade and the Texans in general.

But ... shame on Ed Reed for the way he has handled everything in this ridiculous saga -- from the time he was recruited, to his failure to disclose his hip condition ... to going and having surgery on his own ... to the way he played ... to the way he left. Shame on the Texans and shame on Ed Reed.

Other than generic slamming, what exactly was he "right on" about? There hasn't been anything reported specific enough to judge.

All things considered, is there any wonder why Phillips showed up in person to confirm Reed's departure? Why is it so hard for Reed to acknowledge that he didn't deliver his end of the deal?

In his initial rant after the Arizona game he talked about how the staff wouldn't listen to him on the sideline. Remember the "I know football" and "I may be old, but not stupid" portion of that rant?

He explicitly stated how he would go to the coaches during the game with stuff that he saw and they would just ignore him. That kind of jives with what we see with our defense. We routinely get exploited late in the game because we don't make adjustments. Then you have a future HOF Safety on the sideline telling you what he sees out there and you just ignore him. Then you send him and Brice McCain right back out there to cover guys man-to-man that they have no chance of covering.

In other words nothing. Look, I am not saying he didn't have a legitimate beef with the Texans. But we don't know enough to judge who was right. For all we know he was saying to leave him in centerfield and have DJ drop into the box more often.

Maybe. But a guy with his pedigree........I think he was saying more than that.

If we as fans can see a few things from the stands or on TV, then I assume a future HOF'er that's been in the league for 15 years can see it too.

Good. Let's here it, Ed...

If there's an organizational problem Ed needs to puke it out to the world.

His mouth can't hurt the Texans. Might help.
