It is but they took a shot. If it doesn't work out then you move on and try something else next year.

The Defense is fine right now without him. We need an injection shot on the offense.

This HT.com article on Reed's status is somewhat comical. Read it. Then, not knowing when it was published, the wording of the quotes and all, see if you could figure out if it were an article published yesterday, a week ago, two weeks ago, three weeks ago.........

Ed Reed was very, very close to playing vs. TEN

Ed Reed calls return to Baltimore just 'another away game'


By Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun

7:58 p.m. EDT, September 19, 2013

Ed Reed insisted that it won't be an emotional day for him. His return to the place where he played for 11 seasons to face an organization that he won a Super Bowl with seven months ago is just "another away game right now."

But as Reed continued to talk, he offered a glimpse of the emotional tug that he will probably experience Sunday when he returns to Baltimore to face the Ravens as a member of the Houston Texans.

He admits to thinking about the short drive to M&T Bank Stadium from a downtown hotel and the familiar walk past security guards that he's shaken hands with on game days for years now. But that's where things get fuzzy because his destination has never been the visitor's locker room.
Ed Reed calls return to Baltimore just 'another away game'

"I still got a lot of thinking to do," Reed said Thursday in a conference call with local reporters. "My time in Baltimore was awesome, every bit of it. I have no regrets from when [general manager Ozzie Newsome] called me on draft day, to being in the old facility, practicing in the snow with [head coach Brian Billick] and just everything we went through with Coach [John Harbaugh] and growing. Iron sharpening iron. I have a lot of great memories, a lot of great friends.

"I always will be a Raven. That's where I was kind of raised in the NFL. I did a lot of growing and we did a lot of special things. That's something that can never be taken away and it never will. There's a lot of love there."

Reed, the ball-hawking safety who has built a future Hall of Fame career on surprising quarterbacks, seems intent on keeping everybody guessing until the very end. Signed by the Texans in late March, Reed has yet to suit up for a game with his new team because he's still recovering from surgery that he had in April to repair a torn labrum in his hip. He says that he's still dealing with tightness and soreness and he has a "lot of work to do" before he returns to game action.

"I'm not confident about nothing but going day-to-day, the way I've been," Reed said when asked if he's confident that he'll play Sunday. "You can't be confident if you haven't been on the field."

Never mind that none of his former teammates actually believe that he'd miss an opportunity to play again in front of fans, who for more than a decade, cheered him loudly every time he got his hands near the football. Never mind that former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, his long-time teammate and close friend, will be at M&T Bank Stadium to be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor during a halftime ceremony. Never mind that Reed has been practicing for several weeks and his current coach, Gary Kubiak, said Wednesday that the nine-time Pro Bowl selection is as close to playing as he has been.

In the 10-plus minute conference call, Reed was at his mercurial best, talking more about "coaching" against the Ravens than playing against them for whatever that's worth.

"Just looking at the whole team, it just looks a little different for me, especially being on this side of things," Reed said. "I was looking at it last night like, 'Wow, this is something that I'm really coaching against my boys.'"

Asked if he anticipated being emotional around 1 p.m. Sunday, Reed said "not at all," comparing it to all the games that he played against the Indianapolis Colts and their standout wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who was his former roommate at the University of Miami.

"It's like playing against your brothers again, while I'm out there coaching," Reed said. "I've been having this feeling for a long time. It's different being here and coming to see my guys, who I've been fighting with for a long time."

But his pending return certainly has stirred up plenty of emotions from his former teammates. Both quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receiver Torrey Smith, who compared Reed to a big brother, admitted that it will be weird to see him, potentially wearing the No.20 jersey of another team.
THE REST OF THE STORY


I can very well understand his statement. And no one here should fault him for it. Must be a difficult situation for any player in his position.....and certainly one that would carry with it many mixed feelings.

Good read. I certainly can understand his position and would be surprised if it were any different.

The only thing that would surprise me, though, is if it were just another away game for Reed. Sometimes you can't say it enough times to make it so.

We should understand. Thats their Andre Johnson, no matter where Ed Reed goes, he will be seen as a Raven. If Dre (god forbid) were to play for another team Im sure he would say and feel the same.

I am mulling whether the Ravens are being chicken crap honoring Ray Lewis this week. It is awkward for Lewis and Reed. Don't see the reason for doing it this week other than making things awkward for Reed. Last week was their home opener.

Default Re: Ed Reed may miss games now

Last night on Ch 11 News at 6 they had a soundbite from reed saying if he does play it would only be a limited snap count and not starting according to Kubiaks wishes but if it was up to Wade he would be out there the entire game.

Now today Kubiak says when Reed returns it will only be a as a starter.

Like I have been saying for months: Ed will play when Ed wants to play. Ed being Ed.

Default Re: Ed Reed may miss games now

When I hear about Andre Johnson possibly missing games, I get a sense that the man wants to be back in the game. He does NOT want to sit on the bench while his teammates are out there playing.

Ed Reed, on the other hand, seems almost complacent. He appears satisfied just collecting a paycheck and sitting on the sidelines.

Reeds split up with the Ravens wasn't as nice as people have lead on. Great reason for him to do his thing. Don't think for a minute he doesn't want to go out there and humiliate Flacco

I doubt that he would want this to be his swan dive either.

The Ravens had to work around Ray's ESPN schedule and his son's football schedule- this game worked out the best for all parties.

had nothing to do with Ed Reed.
