This one is from later in the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Charlie Batch is at quarterback for Pittsburgh, and you can see the prowess of Ed Reed as plain as day. Look at his eyes. Pre-snap, watching everything that Batch does.

It’s like a broken record, because Reed is still watching the quarterback’s every move.

OUt the football comes. Like I said before, Reed knows where it is, he knows where it’s going………

He shows us he can go and get it. He makes the pick in the end zone, and returns it back another 34 yards.

He is a ball-hawk. He knows where the ball is, he knows where it’s going, and he can go get it.

Why is this so important? It allows the other defensive backs to cover more aggressively. Why? They know they have Ed Reed helping behind them. They can take a few more chances, with that security blanket back there.

Don’t get me wrong, Ed Reed is 35, not 25. He won’t be out there every play, far from it. But when he IS out there, he will pay dividends.
