Glendale, AZ (CBS HOUSTON)– Veteran safety Ed Reed is probably not the only Houston Texans player who is unhappy after a seventh straight loss, dropping the defending AFC South champions to 2-7 on the season. Reed might also be riled up after effectively being benched as the starting saftey for the Texans.
After the Texans 27-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals Reed talked about the loss.
“Arizona played their best ball,” Reed said after the game. “We played really well outside certain situations. Certain situations we just got outplayed and out-coached.”
“There’s a lot you can learn from this,” Reed said of the teams longest losing streak in franchise history. “There is a lot of growing you can do.”
After his comments Ed Reed took to twitter to defend those comments and reiterate that this was a learning experience for everyone involved.
He also pointed out he played on the kick off team today when someone asked if he was turning his back on Housotn.
Reed was all but benched as he has been almost a non factor for the Texans this year and Shiloh Keo and DJ Swearinger saw most of the snaps at the two safety positions
