Not necessarily. Reid is fast as hell, he flies in from the secondary to make stops.
if your safety is making majority of the tackles, unless he's living at the line of scrimmage and blitzing a lot it means a whole of other people are getting beat. that's why he's the safety not the 1st option
for the 6th week in a row, if Reid is in the game, there are no deep passes to his side. they might try over the middle, or to Whitner's side but not his, and that speaks volumes.
and to speak on his speed, today when they broke the passing play to Whitner's side, Reid actually came from his and beat him to the spot to cut off the angle on the wr.
He still has trouble if he has to run from a long distance after the wr has made the catch and wrapping up on the sidelines.. i don't know why. but in the middle of the field he's money.
other than that he's decisive, and not out of position. there are no Yac when he gets you and he has every db's back.
He's a pro bowler imo. He probably won't get many more int opportunities cause he won't be seeing passes to his side for much more of the season.
