Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed unsure if he'll return next season - ESPN
I hope this isn't going where I think it's going to go (people on this board saying "maybe BB can talk him into coming to New England to win a ring"). From what we've seen this season, Reed has a better chance winning a ring in Baltimore.
They went 9-7 this year & split with the Patriots.
They have also won as many super bowls as the Patriots in the last five years - ZERO!
Well if you're going to go down that route, the Oakland Raiders have been in a SB more recently than the Ravens.
change your nick to What's Down Bro...that would be more apropos
How did you get back on this board? I thought you got banned?
I didn't realize that Reed had a chronic neck injury, so I was pretty shocked to see that article on ESPN. Selfishly, I hope he plays a few more years since I enjoy watching him, but I don't think anyone would be able to blame him if he decided to hang it up.
As far as the Ravens being closer to a ring than the Pats, how the hell do you figure? Their young talent pretty much begins and ends with Rice, Flacco, Gaither, Ngata, and Oher. Mason's probably gone, the jury's still out on Flacco, and Lewis is on the way out. By no means are they in terrible shape, but the Pats have much better-looking prospects over the next 2-3 years IMO (and I'm not totally sold on the Pats, either).
Be a shame. It's always difficult seeing all time greats bow out of the game. Ed Reed is an absolute champion.
banned?..why..because I'm a positive Patriots fan?
so..what else is down, bro?
Yes, you got banned for threatening Tripplecamp a couple weeks ago. You challenged him to a fight at the wild card game against the Ravens. Yeah, I saw that post.
so..what else is down, bro?
You can't answer it can you?
answer what?..if you're referring to Triplechamp,I got no problem with him...don't know who tripplecamp is..why don't you give me the LOW down..
You know who he is because I taunted you after you got banned and I got a personal message from one of the mods saying I can't do that. I asked why you got banned and they told me. I don't know why you keep denying getting banned.
This something that can't be discussed via private message between the two of you. I don't think Ed Reed gives a ****
Ed Reed would of made a good additon to this board, now he's going to shy away with all this drama.
Or he'll rattle y'alls heads.
One of the few Miami players who I actually respect.
Ed Reed looked great tonight..right up until he fumbled on that long INT runback and effectively sealed the Ravens fate..he'll be back..the Ravens play the Pats next season
This will end as soon as he answers me and stops dancing around the question.
Or Ian bans you both..... nobody wants that.
Anyway, I'm surprised to hear that Ed Reed is considering that. He's still a gamer, but I do respect athletes who retire on their own terms and not because no team will sign them.
Since this has already veered already waaaaaay OT: Hey Joker, today at Hong Kong Disneyland one of the people working there was named... Joker. That is his real, official name. I thought of you and Heath Ledger.
I hope Reed does not retire. I think of him as one of the true greats of the game and he seems like a good guy.
It would be tough to see Reed retire. I'd love to see him playing here for a year or two though.
If he has health problems, I'd like to see him retire a Raven. It's a shame he never got a ring, he truly was a phenomenal player. Anyone that can regularly pick of Peyton Manning is a stud. Simple as that.
lol .... who are you? and why does he have to answer you?
I love some people on this board.
Speak for yourself!
I think TriplecHamp would have won that fight. He watches the UFC and (probably) wears TAPOUT T-Shirts.
Reed hasn't been the same for what, 3 years?
Its gotta be frustrating for an ultra-competitive (you can tell) guy like Ed Reed to play at half strength all the time.
