    forgot to post on topic


    i may be a homer, but i dont see how it cant be ed reed........

    the entire nfl watched as ed reed flew to every ball against indy......

    i agree that dawkins is a more intimidating prescence, but reed is no slouch..... i acually think hes going for those monster hits more than wrappping up somtimes...... if hes a little late getting to the reciever, he will lower his shoulders and bring pain.....


    Go Ravens!

      Ed Reed

      Sean Taylor is the best FS in the NFL

        Reed- slightly more athletic, a bigger playmaker at this point
        Dawkins- hits harder, superior in run support and blitzing, also has a knack for knocking the ball out, veteran knowledge and the heart and soul of philly's defense.

        I'd say Reed is #1 but it's very close.

          Best highlight reel EVER
          I've seen that before; it's freaking awesome.
          Requiem for a Dream soundtrack does that to highlights.

              85 Tackles

              Reed
              0 sacks
              1 FF
              5 Ints
              60 Tackles

              Dawkins
              1 sack
              5 FF
              4 Int
              98 Tackles


              so its between Dawkins and A Dub for most complete Safety

              even though i probally take Reed over both of em
              Reed would have a lot more tackles if the Ravens' defense wasn't so good.
              That's a one-sided argument though, because the pressure Reed's front seven creates forces inaccurate passes (if that), and the additional help he receives from the secondary allows him to gamble as crazily as he does for picks.

                  That last int with the lateral was a total screw job by the refs. You think they'd learn not to be overzealous blowing their whistle. That could've easily been the only TD the Ravens needed. Seeing that again really pisses me off.

                    This is very hard, their probably the two both best Saftys in the game today. I'm just gonna go Reed.

                      I think they are without question the best two safeties in the league (maybe you can throw Polamalu into the mix), and I am huge fans of both of em. But I guess I would take Reed if it came down to it, he defines the terms ballhawk and playmaker.

                        I think that's a defining factor for a lot of people. Most are drawn to the flashier players, and obviously love the playmaking ability. It's like comparing Adrian Wilson to Troy Polamalu. I'd say without question Dawkins is the better player and Reed the better playmaker, though both are above most other Safeties in each other's respective categories.

                          ...seriously, Ed Reed


                          The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                          If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                            Well the thing is, Dawkins is a great playmaker himself, one of the best in the league, he gets picks and he forces a lot of fumbles and gets sacks and everything, he is an emotional leader, there is nothing he's bad at, but hes known as a big hitter....Ed Reed on the other hand is known for his ballhawking skills because he is probly one of the best ever in terms of ballhawking, but its not as if he isn't a big hitter or a force in run support. These guys are both great all around safeties.

                              Yeah. Probably wasn't all too clear, but I was trying to say that Dawkins can do just about everything that a Safety is called upon, while Reed is that ballhawk that's always going for the big play. But at the same time, that Dawkins is a huge playmaker and Reed is probably the third best safety in terms of all-around ability. Really though, you couldn't go wrong with either, and they're without a doubt head and shoulders above the rest.
