Bill Belichick’s favorite player, Ed Reed, had himself quite an afternoon Sunday … Four tackles, two passes defensed and one big pick. And he also was, in part, responsible for providing over-the-top coverage on Randy Moss.
So this being a friendly place for him, here’s his take on a few things today:
On how Baltimore got its swagger back on defense after a rough start … “The one thing about this defense – The swag don’t leave, man. Ain’t never gonna leave. The swag was here when I got here, before I got here, and it’ll be here when I leave. That’s what we’re built on. That’s the tradition we have. And we’re gonna keep fighting that way.”
On Vince Wilfork’s 13-tackle effort … “Vince is a Hurricane, I knew he had fight. He’s gonna come out with that attitude to win the game. We always prepared to go undefeated, as Hurricanes, so I know these guys are gonna fight.”
On what he said to Wes Welker at the coin flip … “Wes Welker, he works hard all the time, and like I told him, ‘Get healthy.’ The game needs him, a guy like that.”
