The Ravens have told Ed Reed to either play within their secondary schemes, or risk being benched this season.
To a guy who they just over a year ago handed a $44.4 million contract, that's quite a statement. However, the Ravens went back to the tape this offseason and saw how poorly Reed played in help coverage with Samari Rolle in 2006. "I play with instincts," Reed says. "I'm never going to change my game."

Steve Smith, TJ Houshmandzadeh, Braylon Edwards, off the top of my head scored deep touchdowns because Ed Reed was freelancing, aka 'playing my game.'

Ed Reed sucks. He had one good year and like what Shiver just said a lot of WRs have scored on him because he was playing his game.

Well everyone knows Ed Reed plays on instincts and is a somewhat undisciplined player who will abandon his responsibilities when he thinks he can go make a play. The Ravens should realize this and realize that no one in the game is better at doing this. I cant imagine them benching him, and we'll see how stubborn Ed Reed chooses to be about his playing style. I would expect there to be some compromise but hes a instinctive player and thats not gonna change even if he does try to cut back a little bit and respect his responsibilites in the scheme more. But if Im Rex Ryan, im scheming for Reed to be able to freelance.

On the topic of the thread, it's probably because Rolle has dropped off dramatically in coverage. He's still good, but not what he used to be.

Ed Reed will be on the field no matter what, baring injury. First of all Mike Preston is an ass and his words should be taken with a grain of salt. He's Baltimore's version of a Pete Prisco for reference. Secondly, its all part of the process in trying to educate some of the naive fans of the Ravens to the fact that Samari Rolle wasn't as bad as they made him out to be. The only thing that needs to be taken out of this article is that Dennis Thurman is preaching more communication and team play in the secondary, which will only make the league's reigning #1 Defense even better.

It seems that a lot of problems would be solved replacing Rolle instead of Reed, but it is not unreasonable of the Ravens at all to ask Reed to do his job.

If he refuses then he's being a selfish baby.

This would be like Dungy telling Peyton to follow his plays or face being benched(Not an actual example, but something of that caliber). Ed Reed is one of the best safeties in the league, but training camp is all about getting players disciplined and making sure they don't blow their coverages, because in game-time situations, it will cost them valuable yardage.

This is nothing more than a way to get him under control. It is by NO MEANS serious.

All you said was Reed sucked and used Shiver's post as evidence. None of those WRs are scrubs and went on to score more TDs against other Safeties. If you wouldn't take Ed Reed on your team you don't know football. How he sucks is beyond me, but him free lancing is better that 90% of other safety's doing what they are supposed to. You can't find another defensive player with better instincts.

Bohleive
08-04-2007, 04:23 PM
The fact that mike preston wrote the article (incidently, probably the only fact in the article) pretty much invalidates it completely. Preston basically makes stuff up in order to attract attention, he 'stirs the pot'. He's been essentially cut off from the locker room; they don't let him in anymore, and pretty much has no sources within the ravens organization at this point. Preston has a lengthy history of coming out with controversial stories like this which later on prove to be totally false (hence his getting cut off).

I actually think that it might be a good decision to bench him for a little bit and see if they can get someone to play the position fundamentally correctly and not give up the big plays Ed Reed does. I think if they could get someone to come in and play well Ed might be convinced to change his game a little to cut down the big plays he gives up.

Once again, defenses that play with "emotion" and "instinct" are undisciplined defenses. Ed Reed needs to focus more on his scheme and executing his assignment instead of getting jacked up with Ray Lewis over one play. Like Shiver said, he's not invincible and has been burned from time to time. Reed will have to face the reality that he needs to play more fundamentally sound football; the game is not a track meet nor is it sandlot football.

LSUALUM99
08-05-2007, 04:42 PM
See, this is what inflames me about posters here.

I think Ed Reed is the best safety in football. I don't know that he is though. I mean, take two seconds to think if YOU really know what each player is supposed to be doing on any given play. You don't. You think you know, but you have no real idea. So, it inflames me that people here seem to think they know more than the Baltimore coaches. If he were to be benched, he would probably be hurting his team more than helping.

If a guy gives up 1 touchdown a game but also gets 1 interception a game is he worse than one that gives up zero touchdowns but also gets zero interceptions? To me, yes, he's substantially worse. Would he be in the Hall of Fame averaging an INT a game? His stats would suggest he would be. He'd never get that far because his team would get rid of him or bench him.

So, this begs the question. If the Baltimore Coaching staff benched him or mentioned benching him, do you think THEY think he's hurting more than helping?

HerthaFootballFan

I'm not saying he's a great playmaker, but his freelancing ways hurt the ravens a lot as well as he would look to make a big play instead of staying with his responsibilities. If he could focus on maintaining his responsibilities and free lancing while still in position to cover his spot that'd be much better. And if he says that he's not changing his game then you have to force him to, even if that means benching him in training camp.

08-05-2007, 04:47 PM
I think Ed Reed is overrated as a safety. He is not the most physical safety and his mental game leaves much to be desired. He's inconsistent. I'd much rather have a player like Troy Polamalu who has tremendous closing burst and plays very well within his scheme. Troy can line up as a centerfielder, he can blitz from the middle, he can contain from the edge, etc. He does it all and he does it how he's supposed to. All safeties make mistakes, but those that play within the system limit their mistakes. It's unacceptable for any player to think he's above the coaches. We saw it with LaVar Arrington, look where he is now. Your coaches are paid to teach you and implement their system because they are more knowledgeable. Do what they say and don't whine about it.

The whole point of staying within your responsibility is to make the big play. Many defensive plays and schemes are designed to create confusion and a big-play opportunity for a player on the field, usually a safety. Reed doesn't need to freelance to make plays, and if he craves his own attention, stats and accolades so much he should be benched. Football is a team sport, and defense is all about supporting your brothers.

To be fair Arrington is done not because of his freelancing, but because of his injuries. If he had never gotten injured he'd still be a starter and boarder line probowler. The problem is though that Reed wasn't a LB but rather a safety, he's it, there's no one to cover him if his guy gets by him, so for that reason alone he should play more within the scheme. However having said that his playmaking abilities are incredible, and more so because he still does an above average job covering his responsibilities, just not a great job like other elite safeties, Dawkins for example.

I don't need to respond to your moronic statements because they're worthless but this time I'll make an exception.

Then knock that Reed isn't physicial is bunk! Most base this argument on the fact that he doesn't play in the box and blitz but news flash he doesn't need to in our defense with proven pass rushers all over our D but even then he still will blitz from time to time with an effect everytime. Just because he doesn't make Sportscenter highlights every week like Taylor for jacking up a Punter! doesn't mean he can't lay wood with the best of them. Anyone who watches him closely and see when he's in centerfield and receivers come across the middle he's there waiting to unload. Unlike the others mentioned he can actually cover and doesn't always need to make a big hit because he likely has broken up the play and/or provided good enough coverage to negate a pass. But he's not only great in coverage but he's also very solid against the run as well. I'm tired of these ridiculous notions that he's not physical because they're moronic and unfounded!

please give me any proof that he actually can hit. I love the guy but you have to realize that hitting just isn't his thing, and in coverage he often makes bad mistakes trying to make plays. These are the knocks on his game please respond to them and them alone. We all agree that he can make a lot of great plays but these things are things he doesn't do well.

people are we forget that game vs colts in the playoffs he was just everywhere

picks , big hits , deflections , just everywhere

ed reed does not play to his postion and many times that does not help rolle or the team

but all the times hes not where he was suppose to be he them saying "he was in the right place at the right time"

i agree with Champ that they should make plays , but not every play just some so he does not fell not involed in the game "like he has to do something on his own to get involed" thats my 2 cents

we all knew he freelanced, this shouldn't come as a suprise. and u had heard wispers of him leaving teammates out to dry at time by not covering his end (in the scheme), so this just makes it known that the coaches don't like it and want him to cut down doing it. He won't be benched, but u never know it could be ala Levar Arrington.

The only thing about this that comes as any suprise is Ed Reed's reaction and response. I'm not a fan of that one bit and that makes me think this is an issue that may be worth watching. He won't be benched, they have to much money into him and he's to good a player, but u never want a leader on ur team voicing that type of opinion. Not good for team moral, and doesn't send a good message. He went down a notch in my books, no doubt.
