DB-ED REED(on the pride of Baltimore Ravens football) 12/15/04
"We love playing football, and that's the best thing about us. We love just playing the game of football, going out there having fun and competing. Like I said, the most important thing is us just trying to go up there and get a win. This is the playoffs for us. We're not thinking anything else."
DB-ED REED(on the Ravens defense wanting to be better than anybody else) 12/15/04

DB-ED REED(on what he remembers of WR-Reggie Wayne from college at Miami) 12/15/04

It's something we always talked about. It's something we always saw."
