2005 focus exhaust rattle

My wife's 2005 focus exhaust rattles really bad when the car idles. We believe the car tore the exhaust heat shield loose while going through deep snow last Winter. I can see it hanging from standing way back behind the car. Can I simply just remove the shield, rather then attempt to reattach or replace it?

Best to attempt to re attach it, I did this myself the other day, get yourself some oversized washers remove the old nut washer combo, use the oversized wacher and re attach, its pretty simple and shouldn't take too much time.
