    Low low post OP.

    Most players would have retired years ago with the injuries Reed has dealt with. It sucks when your use to an all-world player, but at this point you have to take the bad with the good. It's been said many times, but 50% Ed Reed is better than 100% of what most starting FS's in the league bring.

    Re: I've had enough of Ed Reed's BS

    Few current NFL players have sacrificed their body to the extent Ed has. He's been dealing with serious neck and nerve issues for more than five years and the labrum tear is an oddball injury. I've been through it and it's an injury you don't notice 99% of the time but when you stress it the wrong way it is pretty debilitating and extremely painful, which is exactly what looked like Ed had happen on the DHB touchdown. Everyone responds to physical pain differently and I find it difficult to criticize someone who has played through more pain than I have felt in my life. There is no doubt in my mind that he was a huge part of our defense's awesome performance in Foxboro last January and I will be very sad to see the Ravens defense lining up without #20 at free safety.
    Long days and pleasant nights.

    Re: I've had enough of Ed Reed's BS

    he injured himself on that play and we all know he was already hobbled. I know he's at the end of his career but there will never be another playmaker like Ed Reed

    Wow! Did you see the score? We won! Why are we complaining about the BEST safety to ever play NFL football? He's banged up. Sorry, but Ed is all heart. He is a RAVEN and I'm glad still out there. I can't wait to see him against big Jen next week. Game on!

    Re: I've had enough of Ed Reed's BS

    Rolfe--
    First, know that I could not see the game today, so I can only go by written reports of what went on.

    That being siad, I completely understand a rant, especially when one of our guys makes a mistake. What I think some are saying is, how can you throw Reed under the bus? It's not like the guy isn't giving 100% of what he's got left. It's not like he's a team "cancer". It's not like there are guys sitting on the bench who are likely more talented and capable of providing more value at this point, given experience, talent, leadership, etc.

    Further, rant notwithstanding, you seem to be guilty of the same accusations you make of other posters, in terms of personal attacks. Reed a bigger drama queen than Roethlisberger? PLEASE! Get a grip.

    Hit like your gramma? Didn't Reed lay some lumber on a ball carrier a week or so ago, flying out of the secondary to knock the living piss out of someone (don't recall which runner/game) with his shoulder?

    I'll listen to legitimate criticism, but your original post isn't.

    Re: I've had enough of Ed Reed's BS

    I am as annoyed as anyone at Ed's inability to tackle (and make no mistake, it's all a result of his nerve impingement), but you have to weigh the good with the bad...and the good still outweighs the bad.

    So we basically have a Deion Sanders playing safety...he can still take a lot away in the passing game by just having QB's avoid him.

    He is approaching the end very fast though...you can see that sometimes Ed's body isn't able to jump the routes his mind takes him to.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    And those occasional int's are a pain in the ass. He leads all active players with 60 of them, but wtf dude, you can't lay their injured when dhb scores. That's inexcusable and, damnit, i need you to do better so i feel better!

    Right?

    Re: I've had enough of Ed Reed's BS

    Since Ed has a bad shoulder/neck, why is he going in shoulder/neck first?
    Why not go in chest high, like Ray often does on tackles?

    Someone want to explain that one to me.

But I must say when the playoffs roll around there is not another FS that I would rather have back there.
    No. Between 2002 and 2005 he was a better tackler than Polamalu in his prime.

    Same game. Ed keeps the PATS from getting a TD.

    Haters hate to hate.

    Injury is causing Ed not to do certain things.

    You chastise the OP and then show your own immaturity by telling a stranger to grow a pair.

    The notion that "50% Ed Reed is better than 100% of what most starting FS's in the league bring" is utter hogwash. No player is that good. Not even Jerry Rice in his prime was that talented. Even if Reed was the player he was from 2008 and back, the upside of his range and "fear factor" on opposing QBs is offset by his horrendous tackling. I mean, we aren't just talking a missed tackle in a bad spot in a game (a la Dawan Landry, who was a really good tackler who just missed a few key tackles in his last year here in 2010). Ed Reed is having a historically awful tackling season. If he misses less than 5 tackles a game, that's above average for him. He is operating with Shaq/Chris Dudley free throw percentages when it comes to tackling. Make a tackle....miss a tackle...make a tackle....miss a tackle.

    Today wasn't just the awful tackling effort on the DHB touchdown pass. On the very next drive, he had a pitiful effort along the home sideline that allowed a player (can't recall who) to get an additional 5-6 yards on the end of the play. I had him down as missing 4 tackles today. For any player, future HOFer or not, that's pretty bad. Of course, when you compare it to the 11 missed tackle effort he turned in against the Cowboys, it wasn't that bad after all. He's never been a particularly sound tackler and has always had awful fundamentals when it comes to tackling, so it's no surprise that this injury has taken him from being mediocre to being dreadful.

    This isn't a rip Ed Reed thread. I love the guy and hope this isn't his last year in Baltimore. However, he's hurt and these injuries have eroded his abilities so much that I do wonder if there is any benefit for the Ravens to extend him beyond this year. Kudos for playing tough to Ed, but to say that he's not a liability out there right now is a bit of an optimistic appraisal.
