Yep, and these PFF ratings highlight the difference:
Ed Reed rated 17th
out of 88 Safeties in pass coverage
Glover Quin rated 66th
out of 88 in pass coverage.
Glover Quin rated 9th
out of 88 Safeties in run defense
Ed Reed rated 70th
out of 88 in run defense.
What it also highlights is the Texans are going to have to get much better up the middle against the run with Reed in there. NT, ILB need upgrades.
