Reed Says Troy Smith Better Than Marc Bulger

The Baltimore Sun says that safety Ed Reed seems to think Troy Smith is better than Marc Bulger. What does that mean for the Ravens QB spot?

Ravens Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed, speaking on 105.7 FM Tuesday, weighed in on the team’s recent acquisition of quarterback Marc Bulger, who is expected to be Joe Flacco’s top backup, saying that Troy Smith would be more than qualified to lead the team to an NFL championship if he were called upon. Bulger is “just another guy that’s been in the league and been around,” Reed said, adding that recently acquired defensive back Ken Hamlin “adds depth to the secondary.” With Smith moving further down the depth chart, there is talk about his going to another team. Smith, though, has downplayed the potential of a move, saying it’s out of his control. Still, he says, he would be happier if he were playing.

    Reed calling our backup quarterback “just another guy” is not something I’m happy to hear. If, God forbid, Flacco goes down this season, we’re gonna need team chemistry more than ever if we hope to go anywhere with our backup Bulger.
