Ed Reed opens camp on PUP list

Last season, Ravens safety Ed Reed missed all of training camp, due to a nerve problem in his neck.

This season, Reed is starting camp the same way.

Our own Aaron Wilson reports for the Carroll County Times that Reed has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the outset of training camp.

Reed rebounded last year with another Pro Bowl season, and a unanimous selection to the Associated Press All Pro team.

    he sucks….Polamalu is much better than Reed.
    the only thing that Reed has was the few TD returns he had last sseason. you dont see him roaming the field before the play, he is not a hard hitter, and he can not break up plays like Polamalu can.
    Polamalu is in on every tackle just watch the tape, he never stops…unlike reed who stops in his tracks if the play is away from him.
    bottom line ravens suck!

    good thing you read the article that explained why he couldnt tackle much…nerve damage in his neck?
    think he is trying to protect his life while being the biggest game changer on defense. we dont mind a few less tackles if he gives us a pick 6 every other game.

    Maybe he just doesn’t like the heat. Can’t blame him – it’s hot and muggy as hell here, I’d hate to be running around on a day like this.

    Ravens sexual assault cases=0 Steelers?:
    Is Reed’s neck still sore after Ward cleaned his clock on MNF 2 years ago?

  5. EdReed4prez says: Jul 31, 2009 10:14 AM

    To all the squeeler fans who have the silly notion that troy the hippie is better than reed please check the stats and check back… Go ahead I’ll wait. Troy doesn’t even think he’s a better safety than ed.

  6. EdReed4prez says: Jul 31, 2009 10:19 AM

    I’ll even take it a step further… Ed reed is the best defensive back in NFL history. Someone please shut me up with a logical argument.

  7. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 10:22 AM

    Please………any of you Squealers fans that think Polomalu is better than Reed just do not have a clue about football. Reed is exponentially more athletic, a bigger play-maker, a better student of the game, and he can hit. If you don’t believe me, ask any QB who they fear most. The unanimous winner is Ed Reed!

  8. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 10:24 AM

    …and, by the way, Reed is practicing today. He has doned a red jersey.

  9. I C Light Pounder 2.0 says: Jul 31, 2009 10:32 AM

    hmmmm well lets compare the number of rings troy has to what Ed has… thats a nice stat to compare the 2.
    stats are not everything, teams have to know where troy is at all times you never know where he is goign to line up as to ed you just throw to the oer side of the fiels becasue thats all he does is sit bad.
    troy is the all around best package at that position reed could not even cary his jock strap.
    nuff said but i would not expect Baltimorons to understand what a complete player is and that stats are not the make or break point when comparing players

  10. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 10:35 AM

    Hines Ward can only “clean people’s clocks” when the player is looking the other way…….otherwise, they would just run over him!
    Gosh, he must be proud!

  11. EdReed4prez says: Jul 31, 2009 10:47 AM

    Hey pounder,
    If I’m not mistaken chad pennington tried to throw to the other side of the field but ed got the pick anyway on the way to pretty much winning a playoff game by himself. Still haven’t heard any logic yet… If qb’s just have to hit the other side of the field when reed is playing why does he get more picks than troy??

  12. RIP__21 says: Jul 31, 2009 10:49 AM

    Reed>Polamalu as a pure defensive back just for the fact reed is so versatile and definitely one of the best ball hawks to play the game.
    Best ever? Dunno about that…many great db’s including sanders, green, woodson, lott and many others.
    I have noticed that $hitsburg fans are fast becoming the most annoying turds in the league. Guess thats the one negative of 6 titles; attraction of loser bandwagon groupees who became fans on Feb 1st 2009 at around 11 pm…

    ….you must have chosen this moniker based on the pea size of your brain.
    Oh, so by your elementary analysis, Trent Dilfer must be a better QB than Dan Marino???????the number of SB wins has nothing to do with an isolated skills rating of a player.
    and yes, S*&tsburgh fans are annoying mainly becasue they have such low IQs, one cannot even converse with them about anything.

  15. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 11:31 AM

    with all stats or without stats……….ask anyone in the league………..Reed is better….nobody even questions this.

  16. I C Light Pounder 2.0 says: Jul 31, 2009 11:34 AM

    the fact that the boy Troy was selected 8 spots in the draft before assclow Reed really says something first off
    2nd….Ed Reed is a center fielder with two great corners and a great blitzing defense. He has always had at least 4 probowlers around him so he is able to make plays due to the fact surrounded by other playmakers.
    3rd….What Polamalu does can’t be measured in numbers because he does so much before the snap. Troy Polamalu is a quarterback on defense who can line up anywhere on the football field. He the main guy on the Steelers D who quarterbacks look for presnap read(Peyton Manning said so himelf). Plus Troy P covers more ground than any safety in the NFL
    4th….Troy P steps up on D and makes more tackles near the line of scrimmage than Ed Reed. Troy gets to the quarterback and Blitzes quicker than any other safety in the NFL.
    5th…..Troy has 432 tackles and 7 sacks…reed 408 tackles 5 sacks, yes reed has a a lot more interceptions than troy but we are not debating interception totals and if that all you have to factor why u think reed is better than your a clown.
    6th…. look how many times Troy had 10 tackles or more (five) vs Ed Reed (one)
    7th…Troy 2 rings, Reed 0
    i believe that is some logicical reasons why
    Troy >>>>>>>>>>>> Reed

    EdReed4prez:
    Are you still waiting?
    Good….
    Comparing the two based on stats is pretty retarded since one of them is a FS and the other is a SS. But since you insisted:
    Reed: More INTs/TDs
    Polamalu: More tackles/sacks

  19. EdReed4prez says: Jul 31, 2009 11:58 AM

    Ryan leaf was a higher pick than say tom Brady, he must be better by your logic. All of your tackle statements make a strong case that troy is a better linebacker than ed reed. And to that point I concede to your argument. I believe roy Williams and ken hamlin have higher tackle totals too so they must be better than reed too?
    By your logic haloti ngata is the worlds best dt cause he has 2 picks? Interceptions are what safeties are graded on… You’re right stats don’t tell the tale, troy is very good… Is he better than reed at this point in his career? Not close.

  20. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 12:01 PM

    WOW, I am impressed, at least you can count……..but your logic is still infantile:
    the fact that the boy Troy was selected 8 spots in the draft before assclow Reed really says something first off..????THIS SAYS NOTHING, THE PLACE A PLAYER WAS DRAFTED HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING, WE ARENT ARGUING WHO WAS BETTER IN COLLEGE BECASUE IT DOESNT MATTER…..JUST BECAUSE THE SQUEALERS WERE REACHING IN EARLY ROUNDS DOESNT MAKE TROY BETTER…….IT MAKES THE SQUEALERS JUST LOOK PLAIN DUMB CAUSE THEY COULD HAVE HAD REED!
    2nd….Ed Reed is a center fielder with two great corners and a great blitzing defense. He has always had at least 4 probowlers around him so he is able to make plays due to the fact surrounded by other playmakers. GREAT CORNERS? HARDLY……EVEN STILL, OVER THE PAST 11 SEASONS, RAVENS HAVE THE #1 DEFENSE AND THE SQUEALERS #2, GIVEN THAT, YOUR ARGUEMENT MAKES NO SENSE.
    3rd….What Polamalu does can’t be measured in numbers because he does so much before the snap. Troy Polamalu is a quarterback on defense who can line up anywhere on the football field. He the main guy on the Steelers D who quarterbacks look for presnap read(Peyton Manning said so himelf). Plus Troy P covers more ground than any safety in the NFL…ASK MANNING WHO IS BETTER AND WHO HE FEARS THE MOST, REED. REED IS FASTER ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT.
    4th….Troy P steps up on D and makes more tackles near the line of scrimmage than Ed Reed. Troy gets to the quarterback and Blitzes quicker than any other safety in the NFL. YOU ARE FLAT OUT WRONG HERE….SORRY.
    5th…..Troy has 432 tackles and 7 sacks…reed 408 tackles 5 sacks, yes reed has a a lot more interceptions than troy but we are not debating interception totals and if that all you have to factor why u think reed is better than your a clown. OH, OK. SO IN AN ARGUEMENT YOU PICK WHICH STATS TO USE AND WHICH ONES TO NOT USE?………YOU REALLY ARE AN IDIOT. BOTTOM LINE, THEIR NUMBERS ARE COMPARABLE BUT REED HAS MANY MORE INTS, WHY? BECAUSE HE IS BETTER ALL-AROUND
    6th…. look how many times Troy had 10 tackles or more (five) vs Ed Reed (one)……OH, OK, ANOTHER STAT YOU JUST COME UP WITH OUT OF THE BLUE……….WHY DONT YOU GO LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF GAMES REED HAS ESSENTIALLY DIRECTLY WON FOR THE RAVENS VS. TROY……….NOT EVEN CLOSE………NEVER SEEN TROY RETURN AN INT OVER 100 YARDS……NEVER SEEN HIM SACK A QB, CAUSE A FUMBLE AND RETURN IT FOR A TD……….GEE, WHY???CAUSE TROY JUST DOESNT HAVE THE IMPACT………SORRY
    7th…Troy 2 rings, Reed 0
    AGAIN, IRRELEVANT……MARK RYPIEN, TRENT DILFER AND BRAD JOHNSON HAVE SB RINGS……….GEE, THAT MUST MAKE THEM BETTER THAN MARINO…….RIGHT!!! HA HA HA
    AGAIN, BOTTOM LINE, YOU ARE A WOMAN AND AN IDIOT…………SORRY

  21. golongboyee says: Jul 31, 2009 12:03 PM

    Gee, let’s now argue how every linebacker the Squealers have had over the last 10 years is better than Ray………I am sure Ray sucks as well! Ha Ha Ha

  22. Cleveland Sucks aka Philly Sewer Rat says: Jul 31, 2009 12:16 PM

    Listen up all you Baltimorons. Get your head out of Ray Lewis’s ass. Wow Ed has more interceptions. Last time I checked Troy had a pretty big interception in the AFC championship game. As I recall the Steelers has owned Ed Reed when we’ve played. Get a life or get a clue.

    *when a player gets drafter in the early first it mean that the specific player is better than anyone else avaible. reed feel for a reason, so in the end of both their careers we will see A. who won more SB and who is going to last in the NFL the longest…tell ya right now reed will not last as long as troy in the nfl.

    * tell my why i am flat out wrong with my 4th reason…and for dumbass edreed4prez please use some logic
    *i did mention that reed has a lot more interceptions, so i did mention that stats. its bandwagon fans like urself that makes ed reed like a god because of interceptions alone, you cant say he is better because of 1 stat
    * my 5th reason is a legit stat go research it out
    * and yes winning SB is relevant…to be considered a THE BEST in the NFL u must have a SB or 2 under ur belt. if you dont have one then u can still be a great player just not one of the best to play the game one

    How’d Ed Reed work out for you in the AFC title game last season? Because you damn well better believe SteelerNation knows full well how Troy worked out for us!

    So tomlinson is not one of the best to play the game? I’m through with homer stooler fans. I know a few real squealer fans who didn’t just jump on the bandwagon and they don’t argue with two facts… Ed reed is the best safety in the game and ray lewis is the best backer. I happen to concede that casey Hampton is the best d-lineman in the game. To pick and choose what stats to count is ridiculous. Stay a homer and enjoy the time at the top, we’ll see how many of you clowns are repping squealer pride in an off year. Every true shitsburgh fan knows the last team you want to see is Baltimore. Jerome bettis included.

    //Start of logic

    As was said previously, comparing a Free Safety with a Strong Safety is not terribly useful. Neither of them are “better” than the other. You can opine on who you would want on your team at the exclusion of the other (I’d take Ed Reed in a second), but the truth is that they are both at the top of their game in the NFL. There is no FS better than Ed Reed. There is no SS better than Polamalu.

    //End logic
    I C Light and Cleveland sucks are prototypical of knuckle dragging Steeler’s fans. While the abounding douchiness of the sissies in black and gold is enough to make you hate them, you get borderline illiterate, logically challenged troglodytes talking smack.

    hey sixburghdude-
    In one second you say that ray is a criminal, and the next you make fun of him for not engaging in criminal activity with joey porter? Hate on ray all you want but he did the big boy thing, you children in shitsburgh love to get all drunk and “wrassle” I’m sure. But men don’t need to behave like children to prove they got a sack swinging down below. If more athletes did the right thing like that the world would be a better place.

Night game/Day gmae does not matter we will still kick ur ass.

When you step between the lines your head better be on a swivel, that’s football, it’s a brutal game! Don’t like it??? Go watch your boy Phelps!!!”
    you miss the point…….did i say it was dirty??????has nothing to do with it…….has to do with the fact that he can only “act” tough against a defenseless opponent……if ANYONE sees Ward coming, he would be a toast……..i know shades of reasoning are tough for loser Squealer fans but…..
    …….and if Phelps was from Shittsburgh, you could be sure of the fact that he would never be returning there……..just as everyone else is fleeing the dirtbag, flea-infested city………

    Trust me, GrayRay’s “lack of sack” wasn’t because he was doin’ “his big-boy thing”, TOOL, it was because he knew he couldn’t answer THAT bell, when he had no answer for the HURT laid down by the Men of Steel hrs. earlier on the hallowed ground of Heinz Field!!!

    Notice no Steeler fan has replied to cmelton yet. Why do you think that is hm?
    You can’t compare a Strong Safety to a Free Safety. Most of the time, they have completely different responsibilities.
    Troy (the SS) has more sacks and tackles – as a SS, he’s supposed to. AND he’s the best SS in the NFL.
    Ed (the FS) has more interceptions and pass defenses – as a FS, he’s supposed to. AND he’s the best FS in the NFL.
    Next: criminal records. We shouldn’t be talking about Ben’s case, because it’s a civil suit, not a criminal one. We shouldn’t be talking about Ray’s case, because he wasn’t convicted of anything, and is innocent in the eyes of the law. In either case, both seem like pretty good guys nowadays, so I’m willing to leave it at that.
    Bringing up cheap criminal histories makes for a great logically fallacious side argument. Red herring is used by politicians all the time to distract from a logical case in order to argue on their own terms. The tactic annoys the ever loving hell out of me. I want to shoot politicians who use it, newscasters who use it, and you.

    U Idiot raven fans can talk all the stats and numbers all you want…….but what you retards are so upset about is the fact that the Steelers have won 2 SBs since 2005, 3 out of the last 3 games we played against you boners, and are the Champs……take your picks, your stats, and all of your meaningless numbers and smile about them.
    Because all that matters is that when the clock turns Zero……you retards will realize that they only matter in your idiot brains…because you will probably have another STAT in your loss column…
    God you fags are bitter……Ed REED CANT TACKLE and Troy and Ed do not even play the same position!!!! Thats like comparing Apples to Oranges……U All Are SO DUMB especially you Ed Reed 4 Prez…..do you even have a job or a life…..you are on this thing all day

  40. Bmore Styles says: Aug 1, 2009 3:09 AM

    Note how all of the unbiased poster’s comments thus far have said Ed Reed is obviously better. Pitt fans just block it out though.
    Polamalu is a strong safety, he should have waaaaaay more tackles than he actually does over Reed. But Reed obviously has better stats, as was already pointed out.
    I’ve never ever heard one sports analyst say that Troy is better than Reed. Nobody outside of Pitt thinks that Troy is on Reed’s level. You always hear people say that Reed revolutionized the position…. not Polamalu. And when it comes to instincts, Reed is a coach and a leader on the field, Troy honestly doesn’t come close in that aspect. Sorry, that’s just how it is. But please, you can lie to me, just don’t lie to yourself.

  41. The Rural Juror says: Aug 1, 2009 9:35 AM

    It’s funny how sad some steeler fans are. Inferiority complex much? Got a lot of other good things going on in your life?
    One post from Ed Reed4 prez gets their panties all in a bunch…
    To the fans of the other 31 teams in the NFL- here’s a tip- keep your fingers crossed and remain hopeful.
    Maybe one day Pittsburgh will let other teams and players try this thing called football?
    I guess it’s good to have a dream.

    “troglodytes”?
    IMPRESSIVE!
    If you build it we will come…but I don’t think you have the SACK to, TOOL!!!
    btw, I watched the ’08 AFC title game again last night, notwithstanding the whole whiny bitch fight that is FS vs. SS, and focusing instead on who the better SAFETY is, one thing stood out nearly as much as your amusement to me does;
    Mr. Ed made ONE lame-ass marginal play in the entire title game & was beaten on numerous occassions, while Troy completely dominated that game…face it FOOL, Troy is superior & your team had no answer for the hurt in the supposed rivalry that is Men of Steel vs. Rat Birds!
    see ya @ Murder & Thieves stadium the Sun. after Thanksgiving sport!!!
