Ed Reed: "There's going to be some trouble for a lot of people to come this fall; we've got a squad, man,"

http://m.nfl.com/news/0ap10000001527...-some-trouble/

Obviously, it's just words.

But it's gonna be interesting for sure to see how and if Wade can make this defense blossom; something that was sorely missing last year.

Great job by Rick Smith getting this deal done along with retaining McCain. However, the game of football will always be won in the trenches and it seems like this area has gone largely neglected the past few offseasons. This team really needs a NT and RT.

Heard of that JJ Watt guy? He was recently drafted. Might even play in the trenches. Last years #1 too.

Are you so negative about everything in life?!? Good lord, enjoy the moment.

Yeah. We haven't drafted any offensive or defensive linemen the past couple of years.

Oh.

Wait.

But yeah, if the idea that Newsome is smart or Harbaugh is flexing muscles helps Ravens fans cope with the departure of six key players in one off-season...sure, whatev.

I'll say this: I'd blow this team up, too, if meant we had just won a Super Bowl. You guys have what, two titles? And even after the first title, your team was still extremely competitive every single year it seemed.

Our owner has always stated or hinted that the Baltimore Ravens are a team he admires in many ways. You guys got Leach, Pollard and Jones from us. It remains to be seen, but hopefully us getting Reed from you guys will boost us into hopefully at least an AFCC game.

OTH, I bet there will be a few days this offseason where Carmichael doesn't have a job if he doesn't agree to relinquish the number.
Pretty sure this is what happened:

1. They had him pose with a #20 because Ed has always been #20. It's just for show. It's showing that he's with Houston now.

2. Ed and Roc will organize a "pony show" jersey number transaction during camp, which make for good P.R., and that's when he'll have #20.

Nothing to see here, fans, it was just us letting him pose with the number he's always been. A #1 jersey is for first round draft picks, there'd be no sense in having Ed hold up a #1 jersey. So they used the number he's always had.

I have to admit that I didn't think this signing would happen. I admit I was wrong. I think Reed will bring a lot more to the team than just what is expected. I think he could really help the offense mainly Schuab and young WR's in how and what to look for so to speak.

I think this is a really good point you're making. Reed is a student of the game, and I'm sure has a book on Schaub and the Texans offense. It would be smart for Kubiak to pick his brain on ways the offense could be better. Rep to you for mentioning that.

My 1st grader could comprehend that book with relative ease and probably game plan effectively against Kubiak. The basics are as follows:

- Schaub is a weak-armed statue that will start going fetal at the first sign of pressure
- Flush Schaub from the pocket and he is zero threat to run and will throw the ball away 99 out of 100 times
- Schaub will throw the ball 6 yards on most 3rd and 10 situations
- Anything over 12 yards on third down will be a RB draw
- There is zero threat of any trick plays and zero creativity. An end around is the most complex play the offense will ever run
- Kubiak loves to kick field goals. Keep the offense outside the 35 and they will settle for FG attempts
- If the offense does get inside the 20 they will likely call run, run, pass on almost every set of downs

Man, I really like what I've seen and heard from Reed. Seems like he's going to be a great teammate and leader for the defense.

Not saying that anything that you said is wrong, but I doubt your 1st grader or yourself would be able to convince Kubiak that there's a flaw to his approach. A future HOFer that you just brought in who's played against you 3 times in the last 2 years may be able to though. I hope Ed is brutally honest with him and Schaub too.

That doesn't really make sense. The contract isn't guaranteed and Foster would have been an exclusive rights free agent after year 1 or year 2. The reasons to go with the Texans would have been opportunity, signing bonus, and the weather.

Arian made the right choice.
