OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Ed Reed insists Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is doing a poor job, and the safety was released by the team earlier this month because Reed spoke up about it.
Now with the New York Jets, Reed said in a conference call with the Baltimore media on Wednesday that the Houston defense ''is not a good fit for a lot of people who are still down there.''
Reed was waived by the Texans in the wake of a loss to Arizona on Nov. 10. After the game, he said, ''Certain situations we just got outplayed and outcoached.''
On Wednesday, Reed said, ''The truth is the truth. You've got to put your players in a position to make plays.''
