    Having a coach-like presence in the secondary is something we've been missing since Rodney was around. Having a guy that puts confidence in the players he is playing around is always a plus. With the way Denard and Talib were playing at the end of the year, a healthy (bite-your-tounge) Dowling, another year at safety for McCourty your looking at a great defense.

    Chandler Jones another year under his belt, Hightower should have a bigger role next year. Really interested in seeing where the off-season will take us.

    Ed Reed - on display last night. Got the brains, still makes plays, got beat bad a couple of times.

    I'd like him on a long term deal - first as a player, then as a Coach. But BB isn't going to break the bank on a guy this old with this much mileage on the tires. He made $7.2M this year, he's simply not worth that anymore. Remember the average S along with ILB's in 3-4's are the lowest paid on average players on D. $7.2M for a S is like $12M for a CB.

    2 years for $12M, but only $7M guaranteed ($4.5 & $2.5) - that's about as far as BB would go IMO, perhaps not even that far.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    ^ i agree



    He’s as close to Joe as anyone I’ve ever seen.”
    —NFL legend Bill Walsh


    "It's a chess match because he understands every coverage, he understands every defense. And if you give it away too early, then the game is like checkers for him. He plays it how he wants to play it. ... And that's what makes it frustrating playing against him. He always finds those mismatches."

    I'd be fine with that. You could move McCourty back to CB where I honestly thought he was his best at this season and see if you can get Chung to re-sign and play him in the box.

    i think the money is gonna be too much because the interest will be strong from other teams willing to over spend.

    I really don't think Reed's decision is about money. He considered walking away from his contract an offseason or two ago because of injury concerns. If BAL lost the SB, I thought there was a great chance he'd sign here for low money and a chance at that elusive ring. But with him getting that championship, I don't see what reason he has to leave BAL. I think he'll re-up there and finish his career with one team. But had they lost, I truly believe he'd be wearing a Pats uniform with a more than reasonable contract. Maybe I'm being naive, but I felt Reed was a rare case where it wouldn't come down to money.

    If we could convince him to come here anyway, I'd be down though. Even if him and McCourty aren't perfect compliments to each other IMO, McCourty would be a low better in the long term after picking Reed's brain for a year, even if he'd be playing slightly out of position at SS.

    Who wouldn't - problem is, he doesn't come for free.

    The real reason is that #52 will make it so that Ed can't refuse an offer to stay....

    Ed Reed is certainly tempting, but I think his age is going to be a big factor. The Pats are trying o get younger on defense, but the danger is not having enough veteran leadership. Reed would provide that for defensive backfield, but he is going to come with a steep price I think. Maybe we can take up a collection from pats nation to help with the cost. I'll break open my piggy bank.
