Ed Reed shows the love to Belichick

New England Patriots Head coach Bill Belichick has always shown Ravens safety Ed Reed a healthy level of respect. He's gone on and on n how great Reed is, to the point that fans could think eh was wooing the future Hall of Famer. Seems the level of respect is mutual. Reed recently spoke on Belichick, and it's clear he thinks very highly of The Hoodie.

"I mean he’s a winner for one." Reed said, when asked what makes Belichick earn Reed's respect. "I had an opportunity to talk to Coach Belichick a couple times and had him over there at the Pro Bowl. Just watching ‘A Football Life’ with Coach Belichick you can’t do anything but have much respect for Coach Belichick and the way he runs things. His background and the discipline and focus that he asks of guys and what he allows you to do as a football player; he honestly understands your athletic ability. If you look at Coach Belichick and the way he coaches his team and the guys that play for him and the positions that they play, he allows football players to be football players. Coach understands that this is a short-lived career and not everybody is going to have those five and 10 and 15-year careers. A bunch of guys are great athletes and they can come on and make a name on his team and find themselves somewhere else with a starting job. You see a lot of guys playing out of position when you’re watching the Patriots play."

The Pats line up against the Ravens for their first prime time match up this Sunday night on NBC.
