    Another top performance from Reed. Per PFF who gave him the top overall score on the Titans the second week in a row:

    "Titans CB Reed impressed in coverage, allowing just one completion for eight yards on five passes thrown into his coverage, breaking up one pass and knocking another from a receiver’s hands with a well-timed hit. He saw just a 39.6 passer rating when targeted in the game, and his second game ball in as many games for the Titans.

    Probably not, but he should be climbing up the depth chart. No reason for him to be behind Brice McCain for example.

    He's definitely earned some playing time with the starter's during preseason.

    It's preseason so you can look at it 2 different ways.

    1) Give the people on your "starters" reps and time to gel.

    2) Give players who are over performing in camp/games a chance against better talent.

    I'm more in camp 2. So I wouldn't mind seeing Reed get reps with ththat starters game three just to see how he does.

    That makes literally no sense. He's shutting down 2'a and 3's so he SHOULDNT be given an opportunity against 1's?!

    Let me try to understand your logic. So you think the only way he should be allowed to play against 1's is if he's somehow already beating 1's.... that he's not allowed to play.... because he's only playing 2's and 3's.

    If I'm them...I'd put in Reed for a few snaps vs 1st/2nd teamers to see how he does. He has earned it.

    Agree with this, see what he does against 1's. I think he will surprise.
