Think of it this way.....

Did we have a plan B when Bodden Orlando Pace'd us? Nope.

Why would we now?

It'll be "Nothing to see here, folks...we didn't get our man but we still have the draft and other later free agency options to sort through."

They did have a plan when Aso didn't sign, and they have shown interest in Woodson as well. We shall see though.

And long-term those positions worked out better not worse for not signing those guys.

Thank you. Cafe Annie closed off their entire back room (which was big enough for a fair sized wedding reception) for us one evening for one table of about 12 (very mafia feeling, one table in the middle of a big room) and we stayed into the wee hours. Nobody is kicking these cats out and potentially losing the business of Schaub bringing the OL in for a weekly dinner, etc.

I didn't know Budweiser relocated the clydesdales to Houston. If KC signes with us that would make a good smilie: KC on a squished clydesdale.

Ravens S Ed Reed spoke today like a man saying goodbye to Baltimore. Every sign now points to him getting done a deal in Houston on Friday.

That was 6 hours ago. Schefter was on Sportscenter about an hour or so ago and said it is only 50/50 percent chance now that he ends up in Houston.

I've seen the 50/50 segment a few times, so that statement isn't that current either.

So in other words he doesn't know.

I have a gut feeling the deal is done but there is something else at play here. Another signing will be announced along side the Reed announcement tomorrow.

CSN's Reed Interview

Some pretty good stuff here........ sounds like a guy who is really close to pulling the trigger.

Pay attention to the Andre interview underneath that as well. Said he called Reed right after the Super Bowl and pitched Houston, and that he "put the bug" in the ear of the Front Office that Reed was interested.

Already watching film....... granted this stuff happens all the time, but it does sound like the writing is on the wall with the way he's talking. Reed may be trying to recruit some other free agents in the process tomorrow or the next few days too. That's kind of more what it sounded like to me than him trying to make up his mind.

I thought you were joking but there really are people on twitter saying this apparently. Pub Fiction just seems like a weird place to take Ed Reed if you're AJ. Don't buy it, but it would be hilarious if McClain and Schefter were beat to the scoop by a bunch of drunk kids.

"Here I am" when he said that, it made me feel good inside. I don't know what it is about Ed Reed, but if he was in the secondary I would be significantly calmer when we are about to play Brady, or Manning in prime time.
