    I'd love it. Irsay is probably the only owner crazy enough to understand Ed.

    Ed Reed has better hands than Dickson.

    "What are you all doing here? I don't know what in the hell this is all about. I have no intention of signing Ed Reed to the goddamn team!"

    Al Davis would have done it. I miss him.
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    He isn't fast enough for Al Davis to have considered him.

    Ed doesn't have the same open field elusiveness that would have allowed him to line up as a slot or 4th WR back in the day (which we never did). He only got so many touches as the return specialist because he had such sure hands. I can only recall one, maybe two, muffed punt returns.

    Jerry Jones might still do it. With Sean Lee and DeMarcus Ware injured, Ed Reed would be the best tackler on that team.

    Yeah, it's gonna have to be an owner with deep pockets and a smaller than usual brain. lol

    I'm glad I wasn't a football fan in the time where a lot of posters here seem to be...I can enjoy the Ravens without the incredible bitterness towards the Colts. Jim Irsay seems to tweet just for the purpose of being funny...I can definitely appreciate it.

    The other side of that coin is that you (and me) never got to see Johnny Unitas play. Also, Unitas and lots of the other Colts were actually part of the average-Joe Baltimore community. My dad lived in Aberdeen and Unitas had a house there too. My dad would see Unitas mowing his own grass. Later on my dad got a job as a bus boy at some restaurant and many members of the Colts were "regulars." I don't remember the name of the restaurant, I'll have to ask him, but other posters might already know which restaurant I'm talking about. They might've had the same experience. Remember, nobody would be so damn bitter if the Colts didn't have an equally positive impact on their life, and in many cases their childhood. Not many 80 year old posters on message boards.

    Not to say that there aren't Ravens in the community today. But it was just different back then.

    Also they got to listen to absurdly brilliant music and watch similarly spectacular movies. I discovered this new album earlier this week from 1967, "It's a beautiful day" by "It's a beautiful Day." My goodness, the most amazing album I've ever heard in my life. This band is outrageously talented and dynamic, even as talented as Roxy Music, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground, David Bowie, King Crimson, etc. Notice a pattern in my list? All the music listed is what poor ol' Colts fans got to see live at concerts, music that echoed the time that America was living through. Now the music and movies have sharply declined. There's no compariso. But there ARE good bands and actors today, don't get me wrong. MGMT is a superb band, and there are tons of spectacular actors like Tom Hanks, Bryan Cranston, and Joaquin Phoenix.

    (One odd thing though is that the TV shows today are every bit as good as in the past. Breaking Bad, Curb your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, The Wonder Years, Freaks and Geeks, etc)
