Ravens All-Pro safety Ed Reed channeled his inner Channing Crowder on Wednesday when a reporter asked him about offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie, whom the Ravens signed after McKinnie was cut by the Vikings. In case you're unfamiliar with Crowder's body of work, the now-retired linebacker was responsible for one of the greatest quotes in the history of geography . Reed's McKinnie quote can't touch that, but it was pretty good. “Baltimore is a different city than Minnesota; there's probably a little more to do,” Reed said, referring to McKinnie's many off-the-field issues with the Vikings . “I don't know why it didn't work out down there.” Different city?

Ravens free safety Darian Stewart delivered such a punishing tackle two years ago while playing for the St. Louis Rams that the impact knocked Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams off his feet and sent him crashing to the ground. The big hit left Williams woozy for several minutes, ultimately knocking him out of the game. Although somewhat undersized, strong safety Matt Elam emerged as a feared player in the Southeastern Conference with a series of devastating hits. The Ravens drafted him in the first round last year because of his aggressive nature.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never hidden his respect for Ravens safety Ed Reed and that didn't change during Wednesday's news conference at Gillette Stadium. Belichick showered Reed with praise as the Patriots prepare to face the Ravens in Sunday's AFC championship game. "Can't say I've ever coached against anybody better than Ed Reed in the secondary," Belichick said. The Patriots have played the Ravens six times during the regular season and once in the postseason.

Former Ravens safety Ed Reed had his moments with the media during his superlative career here, some good, some bad. But now, he's joining their ranks. Sports Business Daily's John Ourand reported Thursday afternoon that Reed would be joining Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall on the “Inside the NFL” show, which will air Tuesday nights on Showtime and re-air Wednesday on NFL Network. Reed told reporters at Lardarius Webb's charity softball game in June that he was “definitely preparing to play,” though he didn't have plans to sign at all. "I'm very excited to be part of the Inside the NFL team this season," Reed said in a statement.

His offseason started last winter with a hint of retirement. By summer, he was diplomatically campaigning on radio for a pay raise. In the spring, he underwent invasive hip surgery. Staying ahead of Ed Reed is a difficult proposition at any time, but over the past year, it's been impossible to predict what the Ravens' Pro Bowl safety would do next. Or in Sunday's AFC wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs. In his first game back after missing six weeks on the NFL's physically-unable-to-perform list because of the surgery, he had two interceptions and caused a fumble.

After losing the AFC championship game earlier this year, Ed Reed walked through the Ravens locker room singing an old Teddy Pendergrass tune. "I think I better let it go ...," he sang. The familiar lines of "Love TKO" was all Reed was heard saying after the New England Patriots beat the Ravens in January. He didn't address the retirement rumors or any plans for his future. Nearly a month later, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Reed told the team he will return for his 11th season.

Part of my mission here at Baltimore Sports Blitz is to bring you the semi-latest in Ravens cornhole coverage (examples: here and here ), even the day after a miserable loss an NFL bottom-feeder. So here is mindless video of Ed Reed and Michael Oher throwing bean bags to distract you from thoughts about Monday night.

After leading the NFL in interceptions with eight last season, free safety Ed Reed continued his ball-hawking ways, intercepting Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger twice. It's the 13th time in the seven-time Pro Bowler's career that he had pulled in at least two interceptions in a game, which leads all active players. And Reed did it on his 33rd birthday. “Just winning was enough for me,” said Reed, who is the franchise leader with 56 career interceptions.

I want to express my sincere appreciation to Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens for being a positive role model and representative of the team. I am an active duty Army officer assigned to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. On Sunday, I took my son, an avid Ravens fan, to see Baltimore dominate the St. Louis Rams. I promised my son that we would wait after the game to see the Ravens players and try to get an autograph. While only a few of the Ravens players took the time to talk to the fans, Mr. Reed was the true standout class act!

Ed Reed's interview on 105.7 The Fan last night rambled on for more than 20 entertaining minutes, so there were a few interesting comments that couldn't be squeezed into my story published in Thursday's newspaper . Reed on fans who criticized him on Twitter: "The fact of the matter is that people don't understand that football players are regular people just like them. And half of them don't understand the business. And most of them just want you to entertain them. There's a lot of good fans out there, but there's also a lot of bad -- I don't want to say bad people, but a lot of people who just want to try to get on your nerves and stuff like that, man. I'm not the kind of person to hold my tongue.

When training camp started last season, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was friendly and happy. He joked with teammates more than usual and was more animated and vocal. At that time, a lot of us thought his leadership was emerging because the Ravens had lost linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed. And then Flacco went on to throw a career-high 22 interceptions in one of his worst seasons ever. So far in minicamp, Flacco is back to the Flacco of old. He isn't joking a lot and appears to be more standoffish.

When Terrell Suggs spoke at last year's mandatory minicamp, his voice barely rose above a whisper. His first in-depth interview since the Super Bowl season was absent of colorful sound bites and shtick, a major departure from Suggs' normal fun-loving and quick-quipping persona. Whether it was intentional or not, the message was sent and it would be reinforced throughout the 2014 season. Suggs, who had become the undisputed defensive leader with Ray Lewis retired and Ed Reed playing elsewhere, was taking his new responsibilities seriously.

Former Ravens safety Ed Reed stood in the middle of a makeshift softball diamond on a field he knows well and waved his arms as fans chanted his name. Reed, who played 11 seasons with the Ravens, has long said that Baltimore will always feel like home, even after his expected Hall of Fame playing career is over. When that will be, however, remains very much a mystery. Speaking at former teammate Lardarius Webb's charity softball game Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, Reed said that he is preparing to play in the 2014 season.

Few pro athletes have fallen out of favor so quickly in Baltimore as Ravens running back Ray Rice. There have been others who came to town with troubled reputations and lived up to them, and others who came with athletic promise and fell because of injuries. But none like Rice. Once a Baltimore golden boy, he just keeps falling and falling and falling. Rice crashed again over the weekend. He and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, were arrested after an incident at an Atlantic City casino, according to a statement from the Atlantic City Police Department.

While wrapping up their Super Bowl coverage this week, the folks over at Pro Football Focus put together an interesting post with an all-star team of their highest-graded playoff performers over the past six seasons. Three Ravens players made the squad, but it may surprise you which three players they were. Former Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis had their highest single-postseason grade at his position, but it was not in 2012, when the Ravens won the Super Bowl during his final ride in the NFL. No, Lewis made it for his fine performance in 2008, when he had 29 tackles for two forced fumbles in three playoff games.

Here's a big surprise: Ed Reed is driving the Ravens nuts again. One minute he says he's not 100 percent committed to playing this season. The next minute he says he could play for years. One minute he says he feels disrespected by the Ravens and questions their loyalty to him. The next minute he says he's open to discussing a contract extension to "help the team. " Don't we go through something like this every year with Reed? Is this just "Ed being Ed" again? Maybe.

On Thursday afternoon, Ravens safety Ed Reed told Sirius/XM NFL Radio that he wasn't 100 percent committed to the 2012 season and that he has considered retirement this offseason and the two previous. He quickly backtracked, releasing a statement later in the day that said he wasn't referring to retirement. Throughout this offseason, Reed has made conflicting statements about his playing status -- heck, he has made conflicting statements in some individual interviews -- but team officials expect him to play in 2012.

It will probably feel a little odd when Tom Brady walks behind center for the first time Sunday afternoon. Whenever Brady played the Ravens in the past, he would look for Ed Reed lurking in the secondary -- he wrote “Find 20 on every play” on his wristband as a reminder -- and he could hear Ray Lewis from across the line of scrimmage barking out commands as the field generals aligned their personnel before the snap. On Sunday, though, those two Ravens legends will be nowhere to be seen or heard.

It's hard to be too critical of any NFL telecast that delivers the kind of images CBS did Sunday following Jacoby Jones' touchdown catch that put the Ravens up 19-3 over the New York Jets. The money shot with five seconds left in the third quarter was a close-up on the face of Ed Reed, the Jets safety who was beaten on the play. Reed, the former Raven who is considered by many to be the best safety ever, was sitting on the bench looking toward the field with a pained expression on his face.
