Really? I hadn't heard anyone say it was out of line and I am in Baltimore. They're unhappy but its a kind of "grumble grumble" unhappy not a "righteous indiganation" unhappy.

Reed plays hard and lays wood, but the days of launching yourself to cause injury/intimidate are over.

Re: Around the NFL...Week 12 Style

i don't get the leaving your feet and launching anyways.

making a hard hit, while wrapping up, and driving through your target is the way.

I don't know enough about the situation. I know he got the suspension for repeat offenses, but that's about as much as I know about it.

Ed Reed is one of the game's classiest, cleanest players so it's hard not to think there is some sort of example being made of him

Well Reed didn't launch himself into the wr at all. The ball was thrown behind the wr, the wr had sort of ducked down a bit and Reed hit the guy. The guys on ESPN were killing the league/ Ray Anderson over it and it was well deserved. Anderson was on Mike and Mike and seemed to be awfully arrogant about it.

Re: Around the NFL...Week 12 Style

The hard hitters of the league are always balancing a fine line. Reed isn't dirty. But I can see where some of his hits are seen as crossing the line. If Sean Taylor was still playing today, he would probably be in the same boat.

this hit on the bengal at 0:58, correct me if i'm wrong, but it's perfect. shoulder lead to chest, or did he catch his chin?
anyone have a better quality vid of this hit?

Break down and wrap up -- problem solved. Reed's technique on that play was tuck arms and lead with head. I side with the NFL on this one.

There's got to be something Curry can offer, how can a high draft pick like be such a bust? Maybe he needs the right coach to get the best out of him? What exactly do they say the problem is with him?

RGIII 'Rookie of the Week' vote is online.

Four would substantiate his claim to Rookie of the Year. More to come after the Dallas game, obviously.
