    Re: Kevin Byrne slams Mike Preston over his Reed comments



    Once they found out that houston was willing to bid high, I doubt they made an offer or they would have insulted Ed. Same process as whe Ray flirted with Dallas except we matched or came close. Chubby doesn't seem to b e writing this kind of stuff anbout Kruger or anyone else because nobody gives a shit.

    Any jounalist worth a shit, and some that aren't, that has written for the sub in the past 20 years has gone on to a better paper or a notional job. Preston is a glaring exception and you can bet it al that wilson will move on way before mikey.

    Byrne is just following orders and Mikie is loving it. He struck a nerve. Ravens would have been better off remaining silent and not given Mikie the satisfaction of countering him. They're selling tons of papers for him-lol.

    I would think that if Harbaugh was so concerned that Mikey's comments could give Reed the wrong impression, he would make an effort to personally address it and call bullshit on the matter. It seems a little disenguinious to have the team PR guy do it. Nobody takes a PR guy seriously.

    Well, yes and no. Preston is a beat writer, which menas his job is to cover the ravens only. Year around, and give opinions. Which means that inevitably there will be people who disagree. He is not bouind to say all things good about the local team, regardless of how much they might suck.

    I don't agree with everything he writes, but I understand why he gets paid.

    Except that's exactly the function of a PR guy.

    No way the team would allow Harbs to speak on the matter. And I'm pretty confident Harbs is classy enough to not do it on his own anyway.

    Byrne is a PR guy, what do you expect him to say? Sorry but I don't believe anything Byrne writes/says when it comes to stuff like this. NOT saying I believe Preston either, but Byrne and the team wouldn't say it was true even if it was.

    I haven't read Preston for years, because he's terrible, but as I recall he became a columinst a long time ago, so he can write (badly) about anything, not just the Ravens.

    I'm sorry, but if a columnist accused me of wanting to run an HOFer out of town, when as Byrne stated, there was a friendship there, then I would want to clear the record myself and stand up for that friendship. I don't think anyone would find that to not be classy.

    You might also chose to pick up the phone and call Ed yourself and tell him what load of bs it is rather than airing it out in the media.

    Guys like Preston thrive on hearing their name attached to every story that comes after the initial one. Why give him what he wants if your Harbs

    Mike got what he wanted, Ed has been here long enough to know what Preston is all about, Harbaugh/Ravens I am sure addressed this before the ink was dry on his Texans deal.

    A head coach who bothers to respond to every bullshit story from the likes of Preston would spend most of his time doing so.

    If only Harbs could have someone on his staff to serve precisely that function....

    Well he should have Byrne do his post game and weekly press conferences as well. There are certainly issues that are far more trivial brought up in those pressers.

    If he wasn't contractually obligated by the nfl to do those press conferences, I have no doubt he would have Byrne or someone similar do them.

    Not a fan of Byrnes column. He is a PR guy. He doesn't expound on Harbaugh's real feelings besdies just denying Preston's angle, and for a reason. Preston is on to something.

    So you can prove that?

    Byrnes wasn't speaking for John; he was speaking for himself.

    Re: Kevin Byrne slams Mike Preston over his Reed comments

    Byrne said that the Ravens wanted Reed back but just couldn't compete with Houston's offer. Why wouldn't anybody believe that? There is an undercurrent of vitriolic feelings towards Ed Reed from a segment of the fanbase this is just absolutely mind boggling. First ballot HOF, arguably the greatest ballhawking FS of alltime, and a great philanthropist in the city of Baltimore and beyond. people are f'ing crazy!
