Linebacker Reed fierce on the field, calm off it
I was really happy with the way he played last year. He's one of those high motor/effort guys that just has a nose for the ball. Plus, he leaves it all on the field and goes balls to the wall. I think he can be a solid player for us.
I was very surprised Reed was there in the late 2nd round last year. Green Bay fans really wanted him too. Good thing their GM didn't share the same desire.
I first read about his strength from an interview with Barwin. When Connor Barwin says you're the strongest player on the team... Holy crap.
I love this guy.
I think he's going to be a star.
The selection of Watt and Reed back to back made the 2011 draft very special.
Not many NFL players of any weight can do this:
Brook Reed will have a breakout year for us I believe. He was damn near unstoppable towards the end of the season and in the playoffs.
That's crazy go nuts.
Barwin/Reed > Williams/Barwin
And then we have the NCAA sack leader as depth? Disgusting. Oh and JJ Watt and the Ninja Assassin? Vomit. Everywhere. Oh plus what's his face, uh, oh yeah, Brian Cushing. Geez this defense got scary real fast.
Definitely looking forward to Barwin/Reed this year with the rotation of Merci. I have a feeling its going to epic. If we can get Sharpton better off his hip injury we should be a top 5 defense again.
I'd prefer he keep his feet in; he could tweak something with that form. My coach always got after me for too much foot movement in a power clean. But the weight on that bar is sick.
I have a feeling that Reed is going to have a big season. I'm thing 8-10 sacks.
I'll be disappointed if he only gets 8-10 sacks!
This is the kind of defense that can carry a team. It's like all of the years of experience in Wade's career is culminating in Houston, and they've got high motor players with strong work ethics that will pull for him. I think last year was just the beginning, and we are going to see a dominant defense that other teams fear, especially when they play at Reliant.
Our offense just needs to stay healthy and minimize mistakes. We don't need to win 'shoot out' games with a defense this badass. If our offense starts putting lots of points on the board, expect a blowout game when our D pins it's ears back and guns for the QB because they have to pass it to catch up.
I try and set the bar low, and hope a player exceeds expectation. Some revere psychology sh!t.
Matthews is the poor man's Brooks Reed.
If history repeats itself, Wade's seemingly super-human D will play mediocre, Schaub will suffer a career-ending injury, and Kubiak will be fired at year's end.
Just thought I'd remind everyone that $^!+ happens, so don't think the games have already been played.
I figured it'd be Holliday ?
It's a good thing for a 3-4 OLB to be a beast...so this doesn't happen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYO-AeAPqGA
He's got to be able to work against a 300 lb tackle all day.
