    Somebody needs to find out where McNair was at the time of the heist.. He could be trying to get back some of the money that was stolen from him.. Reed better keep a eye on his money.

    Apparently he objects to $5 surcharges.

    I assume he keeps his FA money in cash so the bank doesn't force him to give the Texans their money back.

    But I'm sure that it was just some individual redistributing the wealth from someone who didn't earn it to someone else who didn't earn it.

    While carrying around 50k isnt common making millions a year isnt either. Carrying large sums of cash certainly doesnt equal drug deals

    Ok, why else would someone withdraw $50,000.00 from a bank, stick it in a bag, and carry the damn thing around in his car?

    I can't fathom the cops not asking him that question. And "being rich" wouldn't do it. I guess the hookers have raised their rates in these hard times.

    I'm guessing when the thief ran Reed couldn't catch him.

    Yeah, I had plans that for that money too.

    I don't know why, but there is something of a culture of paying in cash in some league circles. 10 football players out for a night of lavish dining, drinking and entertainment can plough through money fast. $1000 bottles of wine/champagne add up fast.

    And I wasn't joking above - the entertainment puts $5 per dance extra for plastic.

    No, I'm not blaming Ed Reed for McNair's rather stupid mistake. That decision is all on Bob McNair and his cronies as far as I'm concerned. Reed is just doing what entertainers do, and that's get paid. If a team is STUPID enough to overpay some over-the-hill gimpy-assed player with the delusional hopes that he is some kind of freakin' savior, then shame on the doofuses in the front office for their moronic decisions.

    I know some blame Reed for the injury thing, but that reeks of naivety in understanding the minds of pro athletes. I have little doubt that Reed thought he could play, at least in his mind. And he probably gave it his best shot. Dude is a HoF player, and those guys don't quit, but their bodies eventually do.

    The Texans did not do their homework. When you see a team like the Seahawks do it right, building a championship team through smart drafts and FA decisions instead of throwing a bunch of money at one player, I think it is clear who should be blamed for the Ed Reed debacle. After all, the owner is the one sending his private jet and giving his best Cheshire cat grin at the press conference like he just scooped the one ring to rule them all.
