Very few people would be surprised if Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed ended up with the New England Patriots next season. Apparently one of the few who would be surprised is Reed himself. Reed will become a free agent this offseason and the Patriots are in need of secondary help, which is why it makes sense that New England could take a run at him. Earlier this week, Reed helped fuel the speculation by praising Bill Belichick and saying he could “definitely” see himself playing for the Patriots coach. On Thursday, Reed ripped members of the media for the way they delivered that news. “The bad part about this is that you all ask the question, but don’t write down everything that someone says,” Reed said according to Pro Football Talk. “People only get a part of what the comment was. I don’t have to say much about that. My heart is in Baltimore. The question is, ‘Would I play for Bill Belichick?’ Yes. What football player wouldn’t play for Coach Belicheck? Will I be in New England? Mo...

So, I have a serious internal debate going on right now. The Ravens minus 4 is straight up stealing. Like, there is absolutely no way I see SF winning this game.
