> I like safety Ed Reed's instincts, playmaking ability and passion for the game. He seems to arrive in big games and make the people around him better.
Even when he was on the field, Ray Lewis didn't earn his contract last year. We'll see if he comes back this season.
At the point in the season when most rookies hit the wall, 2005 first-rounder Mark Clayton took off: 24 of his 44 catches and all three of his TDs came in the last five games. Now coordinator Jim Fassel is emphasizing yardage gained after the catch, to take advantage of Steve McNair's precise passing. That thinking plays into the speedy Clayton's skills. Says coach Brian Billick, "We need to get the ball in his hands in as many ways as we can."
