Give the guy a roster spot. I love tenacity and ball-hawking - swat ball, cause FUMBLE....!!!

And he's the best tackler on the team, and always hustles his butt off.


Ahem. . . 2nd best

I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

Nope. I didn't say most prolific, I said the best, as in the surest.

+1 - that's a big deal with this fan

defensive guys that can make tackles are a big plus
We are lucky to have Cousins - Griffin will become the better QB as he learns to use the pocket & read defenses

Until then, I hope that Cousins takes full advantage of this opportunity

getting better as the season goes on :lol:



I'm not expecting great things from the O line but I do not expect it to be a disaster either

the O line will be fine and will have good depth



I agree also. last year when we had a bunch of back ups in there it took several games before they looked ok. I expect more of the same this year.

The problem still is- there isn't a position he is built physically for.. he can just be a st guy, and facts are facts, he's a crappy safety and that isn't going to change.

I"m not sure who is going to make the roster but if you have a guy that is one of the best tacklers on the team playing a position that it is important to be a good tackler, then you keep him

We had a safety once with a body that did not fit the position and he's still one of the best safeties we ever had - including you know who

see Coutertrey's avatar :wink:

I hear that.. but another fact is Tanard Jackson is a much better safety- for that matter Gomes and every other safety on the roster are better @ the position too.

I'd rather save the roster spot for the other little guy... Brandon

I don't like Reed because he is constantly getting burned. I love Reed because he is a fighter, scrapper and the kind of guy I want on my Redskins.

Unless there are 4-5 clearly better safeties on the team, he'd make my 53.

Oh, and I think that's a Mark Twain quote: "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog"

There's a reason he keeps making the team. Coaches trust him. Plain and Simple!!!

Reed is on this roster unless there are 3-4 guys better - I understand he is not a great safety but he's got to be doing something right



and thanks for straightening me out on the quote - Rocky M. did alude to it once :oops:

I think we're whistling past the graveyard in regard to the whole defense. We're simply not as good as advertised, nor even good. I think the Bears showed that--the absence of Fletcher was not that important. The Bears would have scored over forty on us if it had been a regular season game, and the Bears are not that good on offense. The offense may come around, but the defense won't. We're going to have to have big games offensively to win.
