Ed Reed at the 8-seed vs Troy Polamalu at the 9.
- NFL defensive player of the year (2004)
- 4 time first team all-pro selection (2004, 2006-08)
- 43 career interceptions
- First player in NFL history to return an interception, punt, blocked punt and fumble for a touchdown
- 11 total touchdowns (5 interceptions, 3 blocked punts, 2 fumbles and a punt return)
- 5 time Pro Bowl selection
- 3 time all-pro (2004, 2005, 2008)
- Super Bowl champion
- 17 career interceptions (including the one in the picture)
- Hasn’t had a hair cut since 2000
In this battle of the safeties (thats the correct spelling, Chris), I have to give it to Ed Reed. He’s much more of a playmaker than Polamalu, evidenced by 10 more touchdowns. The bracket so far can be seen below.
