"Ed Reed, I think, has the intelligence obviously to [say], 'You know what, I just know that I can't and won't do the things that I have to do in the offseason in order to play.' Ray, gosh, it amazes me. I thought a couple of years ago he was a bit of a liability on third down and he seemed to bounce back in only the way Ray Lewis can, and needed to be on the field every snap. Amazing. But even for Ray Lewis, at some point. Ray has such a high expectation for himself and again, it's hard for a player sometimes to truly recognize where are you. I've had a number of my former players – typically the smart ones – that will call outside sources and say, 'Coach, look at my film, tell me if it's time for me to go.' It's a tough question."
