If he signs there's a 99.9% chance that Texans @ Ravens will be a primetime game.

Shyt, stop reading sports news for four days and this is what happens. Quin and Casey gone, Walter cut.

Sign Reed or Woodson. If Keo is our starter going into 2013, all hope is lost.

Seriously, if he comes in for a lower figure one year or two year deal, sure. We're already cap strapped and I don't want to through a Brink's truck at him. If his contract any where nears GQ I would much rather have kept GQ.

This team needs the leadership on the field.

I really don't care that he's not the same Ed Reed. Obviously.

You know what? Andre Johnson is not the same Andre Johnson either. That's alright, if you look at the great teams they have had great vet leaders playing on the field.

I think the team lost too many vets going into last season and learned that lesson. Also I still feel like last years Reed was better than last years Quinn. Quinn got beat deep a lot by making mental mistakes. Reed's speed may not be there but is he going to make those same mistakes? He will hopefully make the secondary smarter.

He was, but had only 3 starts at FS and the rest at SS in 2012. Reed is(was) the prototypical FS and will play there wherever he goes, imo.

Default Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans

John McClain has a lengthy piece:

http://blog.chron.com/ultimatetexans...texans-classy/

Quote:
“It’s mutual,” Reed said about his interest in the Texans. “Both of us are contenders and want to get a championship, but we still have some things to work out.

“Conversations have been great, amazing. We’re on the same page as far as what we need to get done.”

If Reed signs with the Texans, as many around the NFL are predicting, he will be close to New Orleans, his hometown.

“It would mean a lot,” Reed said. “My family’s already been calling. It’s a great feeling to know what the possibilities would be as far as what could happen (if he signs with the Texans).”
not a full copy n paste

I'm not sure on Reed because Wade likes his safties interchangeable and if it is Reed then that won't be the case since he's over the top safety at this point. At the same time this was an excellent point. The team really could use the leadership and playmaking abilities. We all saw the lack of leadership in some of the shell shocked games we had past season and the big awe look against the Patriots.

...Not to mention the times we couldn't even line up correctly. Having two veteran safties to make those calls and Cushing should make us look less...inept in those situations.

Bullstarch. You have fallen for all the hype- he doesn't 'mentor' anyone...Ed's a loner.

He works out in Miami with his "U" buddies, not in Baltimore. And he won't in Houston either.

Again, he's not the leader in the lockerroom you think he is. Ray Lewis owned that lockerroom.

Default Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans

Manning and Reed at Safety.

KJ and Joseph at Cornerback.

Tell me a better FOUR-MAN secondary than that.

QBs picked on us because of two things: (1) Manning playing up inside the box more, due to loss of Cushing, and (2) Quin being left on his own.

If Cushing can last all season, if we can draft a thumper LB to pair alongside Cushing (because frankly, Bradie James is not that guy), then we have the following:

Front 3: Smith, Cody/Mitchell, Watt (With Crick getting more snaps in 2013)

LBs: Cushing, Drafted LB/James, Reed, Braman, Mercilus

CBs: Joseph, Jackson

S: Manning, Reed

That leaves us with the opportunity to target a LB on draft day, giving us flexibility to do whatever is best in round 1....be it a WR, or a LB, or a S to groom for Ed Reed's spot (who would be a better teacher than Ed Reed???).

Round 2 and 3 and 4 we can take whatever is best there for us, given the way the picks fall. Beef up whatever it is the Texans want to beef up.

We could even package picks and move up if wanted to, though that's not Rick Smith's style (he openly says he wants to collect picks as much as possible).

Overall, signing Ed Reed could be an upgrade over Quin regardless of disparity of age and mileage.

I look at that defense, and if we could get stronger on the DL or the LB positions, I look for Wade's defense to return to 2011 levels of consistency and production. Losing Cushing made Watt do much more than he should've been asked to do, and it cost us in the secondary via Manning playing down low too much. All in all, I don't think this is wrist-slitting time if we sign Ed Reed.

The big question will be (1) How do we add a GOOD wide receiver, and (2) Does that happen by restructuring our own guys' contracts to get a FA in here, or do we (3) Go draft day and try to gamble on a rookie being able to instantly be WR2???

I'm not saying I'm some sort of expert on what Ed Reed would bring in terms of locker room leadership (How the hell could anybody "co-lead" with Ray Lewis in there?), but you describe him as a player who doesn't talk to even his secondary teammates whatsoever? This is what I infer when I read "loner".
