Reed is a good player and on one hand I would hate to see him go because of the caliber of player he is. On the other hand I wouldn't mind seeing him go because he is in the same division as us and always gives us a fit.

Tough loss, injury filled season. After months of rest, he will change his mind.

I will miss seeing him play. Just not against the Steelers.

Makes me wonder how long Troy is going to last.

I doubt he'll retire. If he does, he's going to pull a Brett Favre.

I dont think he's THAT injury prone, maybe just this year.

This is his first year injured since 2005. Maybe because it was a neck injury he's worried. Most football players who get one neck injury, keep having recurring neck injuries until they are forced to retire. Like Mike Alstott.

He won't retire. He'll think about it now because he's in pain, but once he rests his body he will decide to keep playing.

Now if next year he has an injury filled year and/or hurts his neck again he might hang them up.
