Default Re: Ill Say It. Reed Looks Like Crap

I just want to see him make at least one big play sometime soon.

He was brought here to help tutor younger players and make an impact in the playoffs, so I'd like to see him wearing a ball cap and toting a clipboard. His mind may be able to still make plays, but his body just isn't. He could make a huge impact by mentoring our young players and teaching them what it takes to be a HoF'er in this league.

Ed was never a big hit machine or a cover type safety. He made his mark by playing centerfield and knowing what an offense's tendencies are. He's an instinctive, reactive player whose body just can't react quickly enough anymore. He needs to be on the sidelines. The only big plays he's going to make will be for the other team.

Bob McNair wanted Reed because he thought his team lacked fire and Reed gave Brady fits . That may have been the match to light the fire alright , the fire not to play .

i'm holding final judgement until denver and new england. i said at the time, we got ed reed for the peyton manning and tom brady, as well as experience in the playoffs. i have almost no confidence that he'll perform in those situations based on how absurdly bad he's been thus far, but i want to see those games before calling for the ax. we were supposed to coast through this early part of the season without even needing him, unfortunately he's contributed to our current collapse.

I'll buy that when Manning and Brady's release times more closely resemble Reed's reaction times. Is Reed going to drink some magical elixer that allows him to speed up his game to match theirs? Manning and Brady will humiliate Reed, as he stands today. This is an NFL team forum, not an EA Sports nostalgic video game. Final judgement SHOULD'VE come last pre-season by hiring Reed as a DB coach and letting Quin learn from him. Hindsight sux.

Disagree- when drafted, Ed was a hit machine here in Baltimore; his athleticism led him to Interceptions early in his career; after learning film Study from Ray Lewis, his preparation led him to INT's, sacks and strips. and hasn't been the same sure tackler or hit machine as he was previously.

I was sad to see him go as he should have retired a Raven, but he is done- has been since before last season. But instead of riding off, he ran for $$$$ after getting his ring. Now he looks downright pathetic. Its like watching Johnny U in Powder Blues for the Chargers.....

About 2007, he suffered the neck injury (nerve impingement)

Looks like Ed Reed has finally been demoted from his starting job, though Wade Phillips is not calling it that. He'll only be used in dime packages now. That's a good thing, except they paid $6M for a dime safety.
