Not at all, Ed Reed would be the best FS the Texans ever had. We always left a safety deep, that was usually Demps, or Keo. That was a big problem with our defense.
With Reed, we'd leave him playing center field. Keo/Demps would have to play man, that is scary, but they'll have Reed backing them up.
Think about it, Jjo (a healthy Jjo), Kj (an improving Kj), & Ed Reed (older & wiser)..... we could put chopped liver in the box (actually, we'll have Cushing & Manning) and field a pretty strong defense.
But... I don't believe Rick Smith can seal the deal. I bet Andre has it all sewn up, & Rick is going to say something stupid & we'll watch Ed Reed fly out on the first thing smok'n
