A 3rd-String Safety Against the Best Offense in History? What Could Go Wrong?

A 3rd-String Safety Against the Best Offense in History? What Could Go Wrong?

With Quintin Mikell joining Donovan McNabb in the "Out" house today, J.R. Reed will start opposite Brian Dawkins at safety. You, me, our fathers, and their fathers have never seen a better passing team than the 2007 Patriots, so this could get ugly. On top of that, Reed will probably be returning kickoffs today, and the Pats are pretty good at setting themselves up for a lot of those. To say Reed's going to be tested today is an understatement.

I'm off to the airport for all the fun events they have planned for The Busiest Travel Day of the Year. Go Birds.
