Ed Reed embarrassed for the city of Baltimore...

55 posts in this topic

Not that his play was anything "radical" today, but he came out and stated he felt bad for the Ravens nation, and the city of Baltimore. That he is disgraced at how they played today. Which the whole team oughta be. Not just Ed.

Disgusting loss today, no doubt, so nothing is really "good" news -- but it is encouraging I guess to see players act up like this after the game.

He needs to look at himself, he jumps routes that don't get thrown and leaves his cb's exposed, can't tackle. Time to hang it up Ed

I thought we needed a miracle to win, and we got it from the defense. They forced more punts in one game than the Broncos have ever had this season, and with half of their starters. Even Ed had a couple of really nice tackles, though there is not excuse for letting a guy jump six + feet over you. Shame the offense decided not to play ball.

Embarrasing was the previous two opponents.He should be as embarrassed by his tackling efforts.

"It hits you in your heart when you lose three straight and you had an opportunity to close our your division the last three weeks. It's terrible. [u][i][b]It's what all you guys have been saying about us right now. Regardless of us not listening to it or not worrying about it, it's just been the truth. We've just acted on it to come out and lose today.[/b][/i][/u]"

Ed...they (media) and we fans are only speaking what we've been witnessing from the Ravens game play from the past 3 games now. just teririble! smh!

Today was one of the most brutal game I've sat through since the Indy team in 2007--it sleeted the whole game.

This was very similar to the Houston game. Against Houston we folded right after the safety, this game right after the pic 6.

Actually hes the first player to tell the truth, even if he doesnt playing his best right now.

But this loss wasn't on the defense. Try to stop Peyton and the running game without your first four LBs, first two CBs and best tackling safety. You really think Bynes, McClellan, Ayanbadejo, Graham or Ihedigbo can turn this defense into a Top 10 D again?? Peyton is the best to change plays at the LOS, without Ray in the middle the defense has no one to change plays.With the personell we're having right now I think the defense is doing the best they can.

The offense is healthy and they know they have to step up to help the team win, and they DID NOT!!

no one in their right mind will blame our defense. i am very proud of them, they played extremely hard, they were ready.Our offense didnt do them any favors how ever.

The D even started gambling to change the game, i cant ask them to do anything more than they did, get off Ed's back.

I thought the defense was very good, considering they're using special teams players. Offense wasn't too bad, apart from one guy playing behind center who fumbled a freakin' sneak and threw a pick 6 when there was a chance to get into the game.

It's odd that Ed Reed is embarrassed for Baltimore, because really Baltimore should be embarrassed for Ed Reed. It's sad to see Hall of Famers who don't know when it's time to hang up the pads.

Guys, you played a very good Bronco team lead by the legend in peyton manning.. They stayed relatively healthy all year so of their gonna have the upper hand and win. Shouldn't be too upset at this loss. I know you really needed it but your team has many injury problems and you just fired your OC. Im sure you can win at least one of these last games.

All the Ed Reed Haters need to step back for a second. Ed is pissed because Cary Williams gave up on the long TD pass in the (3rd quarter?). And I mean GAVE UP.
Not to mention <profanity deleted> Kevin Moreno and a slew of Mediocre running backs completely trample our front seven this year. In spite of no pass rush, and injuries, our secondary (including Reed) have been incredibly resilient.

You're wrong. Go back and watch that play. Ed left Cary out to dry.

I'm not an Ed hater btw.

Nope.
Watch the play on NFL videos (Eric Decker 51 yd TD catch). Ed takes the Outside fade route that Manning had worked ALL DAY against Carey. Carey hesitates on the slant run and chokes a massive D on the coverage. Just watch how he stops running.

I was completely SHOCKED at our defense in the first half. Shocked and amazed. They played WAY better than I expected.
McClellan had one heck of a day.
Cary wont be a Ravens next year.

Reed should be forced into retirement. He is only hurting this team now because he guesses wrongly too much and leaves our weak corners exposed.

Williams did give up after the ball was caught and I hope he's fined for it.

Watch the play. Ed cut underneath to jump a route that wasn't there. They both sucked.

Yep, the last two years he has really been exposed. He needs to retire and we need the cap space.

the fact that cary gave up was disgusting .. whether or not reed missed his job cary was still in position to make a play .. which he made on the next attempt cuz they took a shot on the same exact play again later in the game .. at least joe made an attempt to make a tackle on the pick 6 you gotta fight to the end thats the raven way

I love Ed but this has probably been his worst year as a pro. However many times QBs shy away from throwing into his coverage no longer offsets the amount of tackles he misses or plays he's given up in coverage. He can still plays in coverage and even make a strong tackle occasionally but those times are few and far between. I'd hate for this to be the way he goes out (or leaves Baltimore at least) but he's clearly not going to get anything healthier and his play is becoming increasingly worse.

Part of me would love to see him soldier on after this year but for his health and legacy's sake, I hope he hangs it up after this year.

he is great at making people gameplan for him but that doesn't matter much anymore when he gets burned in the game. he can't tackle, he's always injured, and he makes bad moves. and then says he wants more money? i'm sorry but it would be great for him and for the team to hang it up this year. same for ray.

Anyone saying Reed needs to retire is crazy and doesnt know football. There's a reason Manning was held to only 200 yards and 1 Td, and a reason why D. Thomas was shut down all game, ED REED.

Really depressing, but Ed Reed isn't Ed Reed anymore. All of you know he has regressed, but you can make a strong argument that hes a liability. I dont think he comes back next year and we need to draft a safety even if he does come back.

It is gamesmanship and nothing more , nobody outside of a few ravens fans and uninformed fans think reed is great , he is slow , old , constantly injured , can't tackle effectively , is often out of position and thinks he deserves a raise ! Time to retire or not resigned .

No one can argue how good Ed has been throughout his career for the past decade. That much is obvious. But this year, his play has fallen off. No player can play at an elite level forever. There comes a time to hang it up, and I hope he hangs it up after this season.

And Ed blew a coverage that led to a Eric Decker's TD. He didnt play great today either.

We dont know what he was supposed to do on that play, his job may have been to do exactly what he did. What we do know is that that was Carys man and he stopped running.

Even if Ed was out of place by trying to jump the route you still have to put the blame on Cary. It wasnt zone it was man to man, and as a corner playing man you CAN'T stop running with the WR no matter if you have safety help or not. Thats why Ed was so mad, Cary just stopped running.

His "Show Boating" has got to stop. He is trying to be "Troy Polamalu" up at the line of scrimmage threatening to blitz. While leaving his rookie corners hanging out to dry. Selfish play, He's become a liability with his blown plays and lack of tackling.

And he doesn't even take full responsibility for his actions, “I was not expecting him to jump, honestly,” Reed said. “I couldn’t react because I was dealing with a lot of sickness early in the game. I just wasn’t all the way into it, honestly. I was dealing with flu symptoms and everything. Now its flu symptoms.
