Is Ed Reed going to play this weekend ? I think (i really cannot pronounce his name) James Ihedigbo did a fair job and i saw him in the backfield a few times. I think he can keep that vast real estate back there safe.

Hope Reed is good to go. Even though he blew a tackle, I do not trust Ihedigbo in the slightest. Not to mention he gets penalties like nobody's business.

Really, i did not know that. I just do not want to see Reed get hurt and lose him during this stretch. I am going to look up james and see. All i saw was speed in the backfield.

Excellent news. He looked pretty bad when he went for that last tackle. I know a lot of folks think an 80% Ed is better then most safeties but if he has to keep trying to tackle with one arm we are in trouble. The guy has a lot of guts and is doing things i could not imagine. Playing in the NFL healthy is hard enough but playing in the NFL hurt but still holding your own is just amazing. I guess that is where is FBI (football intelligence) comes into play. The guy knows this game like no other.

Any other teams in the AFC besides the Patriots/Steelers and Ed would likely sit out the weekend.

He's playing.

He really does personify the Ravens way doesn't he. He wants in when the rubber hits the road. He has a ton of character and i respect him so much for that. Can anyone tell me exactly what his issue is. I heard what it was but have no idea what it actually is.

Personally, I am afraid for Ed Reed. I think he should NOT be playing now. I love the guy but sorry, he is now a liability out there.Give him 4-5 games off to heal.

I have to agree...a Reed at 80% is still amazing.
But Ed is playing at about 50%. He can't raise one arm above his head, he can't tackle on one side, and he doesn't have the catch up speed he used to have. As much as I love Reed, he is no longer the guy week in and week out that he once was. Against the Raiders, two guys scored TD's on him. Once in coverage; once in zone. :(

Ed just standing on the field makes a difference.

He has a partially torn labrum which inhibits stability in his shoulder joint making it easier to blow it out and dislocate it. The joint becomes unstable and loose.

Thats at least my understanding from Anatomy and Kin classes lol.

If Leftwich really does telegraph his passes as much as rumor has it, Reed will be in there to break up passes and, hopefully, get interceptions. I don't think anyone has any illusions that he'll make tackles. My only hope for him this season is that he can slow down a ball carrier just enough for someone else to be able to make the stop.

Very true, but this is the stretch lol. These next three or so games can potentially make or break us. Tough run coming up.

I am a huge fan of Ed, but its becoming more apparent that he is beat up and seems like he cant finish a game without an issue. On more than one play last week he was blowing easy tackles, i love the fact he is a playmaker and can make things happen and maybe we will need that, especially now with jimmy out. I hope hes ok because we do need him, but we also need him to make simple textbook tackles.

Guys still don't throw at him. Makes a huge difference in terms of options QBs think they have.

I don't believe he was covering Darius Heyward-Bey one on one on the first TD. It seemed to be in Chykie Brown's area, who slipped before and after the ball was thrown, allowing Ed Reed to beat him to the spot. The point still stands though, because if Reed makes the tackle, the play is over. On the second one, however, Denarius Moore blew right by Corey Graham. Reed was covering the deep middle, but had little time to react with how fast Graham lost ground. I hope he rebounds against the Steelers.

Honestly, I feel we give Reed more credit than other teams do.
People will and do throw against him. They know he is banged up.
I feel a healthy Considine is more of a threat than a Reed that keeps needing peeled off the turf.

Yes, i said it. :(
