Ed Reed was here for 6 years before Harbaugh, along with Ray Lewis. We had 3 winning seasons, 3 losing seasons, and only went to the playoffs twice, not winning a single game. In Harbs' 8 years here, it was only last year that we had a losing season, we've made the playoffs 6 of 8 seasons, made the AFCCG 3 times and won a superbowl. So now you're telling me Ed Reed and his system/abilities as a coach, where he has ZERO experience, would have been the difference between a winning and losing season last year? You think it's better to go out and hire a guy with absolutely no experience coaching football at any level, a guy who by the way was known much more for his unique approach to the game rather than his fundamental techniques (which is the job of the coach, to make sure the players understand proper technique and their job on each play) than Leslie Frazier, a man who has had 15 years of coaching experience, mostly on the defensive side of the ball, in college and the NFL, and who is a former NFL DB himself? What if it has nothing to do with any "conflict", and everything to do with the simple fact that the Ravens defense has been sputtering the last few seasons, and instead of hiring a guy with zero experience to fix the most problematic area on the defense, the secondary, they opted to go for a guy with a very proven track record?
