Ed Reed hasn’t made a huge splash this season besides the two interceptions against the Steelers in week one. With only three on the season, some may wonder ask themselves, what’s wrong with Ed Reed? The only explanation is that he hasn’t played the Cleveland Browns yet.
To put it simply, Ed Reed is the Cleveland Brown’s worst enemy. He has ten interceptions against the Browns and three of them have gone back for touchdowns. One of those touchdowns set a record for the longest interception return in NFL History with 106 yards. A record that was later broken by himself in a game against the Eagles in 2009 (108 yards).
Ed Reed is just 20 yards away from the all time interception return yardage record. Rod Woodson currently holds that record and he’s been watching Ed Reed slowly close in on it. My bold prediction is that Ed Reed breaks that record today.
The only advice I could give to Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy is to find Ed Reed, and don’t throw his way the whole game. The ball hawk that dons the number 20 will be stalking the the defensive backfield the whole game…and that’s his territory.
