Destrehan's Ed Reed Continues To Pick 'Em Off

Big opening game for Baltimore Ravens Free Safety Ed Reed who had two interceptions in his team's 35-7 win over their divisional rival Pittsburg Steelers.   Reed, a native of St. Rose, Louisiana just outside of New Orleans, was All State at Destrehan High School before going onto an All American career at the University of Miami.  I've always thought it ironic that with rich history Miami has had of getting All American defensive backs right out of their own backyard in South Florida, arguably the best they have ever had comes from South Louisiana.  Now in his 10th NFL Season, Reed's two interceptions Sunday, which also happened to be his 33rd birthday, gives him an amazing 56 for his career.  Reed, who led the NFL interceptions in 2010 with 8, now also moves into second place in total intercpetion return yardage, trailing only Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Famer Rod Woodson.  It is pretty much certain that Reed will join Woodson in Canton one day.
