    You couldn't even think of a Buckeye? How about some guy named Mike Doss? He turned out to be an ok Safety for us.

  4. Without a doubt...THIS! It's hard enough waiting on one of our kids to be able to rename the Percy Harvin role. We most certainly have no need to use a player from any other school to define any position on the defense.

    No offense to you or centralMo, but doss was a hard hitting S known more for laying the wood than playing in coverage and being a ball hawk. Bell compares far more to reed, imo, than doss. Idk when weve had an athlete at S that went after the ball like reed. And theres no slight to doss, but reed was more of an athlete than doss, in college amd the nfl. Bell can hit, but not like doss, hes great cover guy who some have even said could play CB, doss was pure S that hit like a LB. Comparisons are comparisons, no need to take them personal because a guy isnt compared to a former buckeye.

    Actually I'd rather by the end of his career to compare him to the best I've ever seen - Jack Tatum. Ed who?

    why is it all of a sudden not ok to compare someone to a GREAT player (Percy Harvin in college, Ed Reed, etc) not everyone needs to be compared to a former buckeye
  10. Because Ed Reed is a scumbag.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    I'd be happy if Vonn turned into a Doss level of safety, but I'd be ecstatic if he turned into an Ed Reed, ball hawk, always seems to be in the right spot on every play, makes the tackle before the trying to knock someone out, type of safety.

    To put things into perspective, I'm much more glad we have Vonn Bell, and not Taylor Mays. Mays always went for the knockout hit in college. He was decent in college, not great. With Vonn Bell's coverage ability, I actually like the comparisons to Ed Reed whether he's a scumbag or not, he's easily one of the best in the game.

    I don't care what type of person he is, we're talking about playing styles, and Ed Reed is one of the best safeties in the NFL, so Bell comes close to that, then that would be amazing
  14. The original post bringing up Ed Reed was by Buckeye Nut. He hoped that Vonn would be the type of leader that Reed is/was. It might just be me, but I wouldn't want to be compared in that way to a scumbag like Reed.
