Denver Bronco99 hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default Ed Reed threatened...TO BE BENCHED!!!!

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."

I just think this forces Baltimore to trade him to the Giants. In return they can have Will Demps. =D

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.

That's sarcasm right?

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 doesn't suck at all. Not following assignments is different from sucking.

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.

The Ravens will not trade Ed away,
They'll solve this quick and it will be all good before the season starts.

There is nothing to solve, Reed needs to respect his assignments and adapt his style to the scheme. Everything will be fine and dandy come Opening Night.

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.
