Default Re: Ed Reed to visit Texans

"Leadership" is so subjective.

This defense does not need a locker room cheerleader.

What it needs is a veteran presence that has been there / done that and keeps them from getting goofy before big games (letterman jackets anyone)? A guy like Reed can be a good presence in the huddle, when it matters most. Let them know that QBs like Brady and Manning are still human and can be beat. This defense lost it's attitude when Cushing went down. I love Watt, but he's sort of a Gomer Pyle as a leader. Gosh shucks right now, and just too young of a player to have the experience and insight on how to push buttons and keep his squad focused on the task at hand. Reed might be that kind of veteran presence that is an intangible and can make all the difference.
