Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

I don't know if we have discussed this before but i was wondering who you think is better now and who will better in the future. I really believe that taylor will be one of the greatest safeties to ever play this game. I also like reed too but taylor is my boy. Taylor is faster,bigger and stronger. If he could have reed's vision and mentality he will be the greatest no doubt.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

Right now Reed is the top safety in football hands down.

Taylor has all the physical tools to pass Reed, but the big question mark with Taylor is the mental aspect of his game.

If he can develop the mental part of his game, he will be better than Reed, but that's a big if right now.

Reed until further notice. The only reason our pick with Taylor looks good right now is because Winslow has made an even bigger idiot of himself. As soon as Taylor grows up, he will become quite a safety.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

If Taylor develops half of Reed's study habits and work ethic he'll be a joy to watch.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

Reed is hands down the better player. Reed is currently seeking a new contract and deservedly so. He was the 2004 defensive player of the year and is probably the league's biggest game-changer. Moreover, he's just 26.

Taylor is as physically gifted as Reed, but he's several levels away from Reed. Taylor is a stud, so don't get me wrong, but he's not an Ed Reed....yet.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

reed watches film with lewis for hours and hours... we got no idea what sean does or where he is, and we know he's made bad reads/mistakes thusfar... he's still only been in the league for one year, but he can't surpass reed until either he learns how to study film and not make stupid mistakes or reed gets too old to play the same way...

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

Right now, Reed. Until Taylor screws his head on straight; and begins to show the desire that I think Reed has, Reed will be the better player. I think that Taylor has the physcial tools to be the better player, but right now that goes to reed.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

I agree. Just like everyone else says, if Taylor can get his brains to match his physical gifts, he'll be a better player than Reed.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

I think I'd take Brian Dawkins over Reed and Taylor.

Not even close, Reed is different class and I doubt Taylor will ever reach his level.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

Dawkins is still one of the better safeties in the league but his better days are behind him. Reed is easily ahead of him right now.

I think Reed has him beat in athleticism, and Reed has certainly put up the stats recently, and earned the All-Pro nod over Dawkins, so I can see where you're coming from.

I just love Dawkins' heart, he is a serious team leader and plays with a TON of passion. I remember after the Eagles beat the Falcons in the NFC Championship game last year, he was interviewed by Terry Bradshaw (I think it was Bradshaw) and he was like "nobody gave our defense any chance at stopping Mike Vick, and we stopped him. GIMME MY RESPECT RIGHT NOW!"

Just the way he said it was so intense. I love that about him, I think he has the ability to make other players better just through his intensity. The other guys seem to step it up a notch.

Ed Reed yields to Ray Lewis as the team leader. Of course, if Brian Dawkins and Ray Lewis were on the same team, Dawkins would probably yield too, because Lewis is larger than life. So who knows if the situation would be different, but all I know is Dawkins has shown the kind of heart and passion that Joe Gibbs would love to have on his team.

Taylor has miles and miles to go in that department, of course.

Re: Sean Taylor or Ed Reed

Reed is easily the best in the league. ST has a long long way to go to even get close.
