I’ve been amazed at the backlash regarding Ed Reed’s missed tackle.

Yes, he whiffed on a tackle on Scott that ended up being a TD, Yes, he seems reluctant to tackle. But you know what, it’s been that way for a while, and the Ravens have survived. He is Ed Reed, and he deserves a pass. This doesn’t mean it’s time to retire. People need to cut the guy some slack. He’s one of the great safeties of all-time, and he’s allowed a mistake.

Hopefully, it’s a little wake up call for him just in time for the playoffs.
