No disrespect to the receivers he had with the Colts, but Peyton Manning never had such a group as he has in Denver.
The key now? Making plays when opposing defenses have a better feel for what he can do. Make no mistake — the Chicago Bears, this week's opponent on Sunday at FedEx Field, will have a much better idea of what Reed can do.
Cris Collinsworth remembers the early days of his second career as an NFL announcer like this: calling a Browns-Colts game before Peyton Manning with only the road team's fans in Cleveland getting the broadcast.
When Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders suddenly dropped to the turf late in the fourth quarter, was helped to the sideline, returned after missing one play, then managed to be the first player down the field on punt coverage, announcers Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth let NBC's audience know their feelings.
Clint Eastwood's patriotic pep talk about "halftime in America" might just as well have applied to NBC.
"Look at the moves from the tight end position," NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth said after Reed's first catch of the Dallas game, an 11-yard reception on a third-and-7 play on the Redskins' first possession. "Ultimately, because of all the option stuff that the Redskins do, you're going to get some man coverage. So they went out looking for a tight end [in the draft] that could win those battles. You saw some of the quickness there. This young man is going to make a difference on this team."
"I don't think Peyton Manning falls in love with anybody," NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth said. "I think he falls in love with the single coverage. And when you've got four guys that can win on a consistent basis he's just going to find the single coverage and let them win."
