    10 Things You Should Know - Andre Reed

    http://www.billszone.com/?p=1763

    1. Reed began his football career as a QB and led his high school team to a championship his senior year.
    2. Andre averaged 6.7 YPC rushing in his career. Running for 500 yards on just 75 carries. This ranks #2 in Bills history behind Rob Johnson. (min 75 carries)
    3. His 87 career touchdowns lead all Bills who are not named Ferguson or Kelly.
    4. Reed is one of four DII players in the Football Hall of Fame.
    5. 13 Wide Receivers were taken before Reed in the 1985 draft, with a combined 24 Pro Bowls between them. Jerry Rice (13), Andre Reed (7), Al Toon (3) and Eddie Brown (1).
    6. Reed started 217 games in his career, which puts him 36th all-time, just ahead of former Bills Takeo Spikes (215) and Lawyer Milloy (213).
    7. Only three players have ever been drafted from Kutztown University, Reed, John Mobley (LB-DEN) and Don Shaver (RB-MIN).
    8. Andre Reed, Chris Carter and Jerry Rice are all mentioned in Jerry Maguire, during the character Rod Tidwell’s renegotiation. “Jerry Rice, Andre Reed, Chris Carter... I smell all these fools. They are making the big sweet dollars. They are making the... quan, and you are talking.”
    9. During his rookie training camp Reed wore #46, after making the team he changed his number to 83.
    10. In his Bills career Reed played with 11 starting QB’s. Can you name them?
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    I'm a proud Miami Dolphins fan, and if anybody says anything bad about Andre Reed as a receiver, they're a moron. That guy ended so many games for us with his catches from Jim Kelly. I'm surprised it took him so long to make it to the the Hall of Fame. I always wished he had played for the Dolphins when Marino was our qb. Although I'm sure I'm the minority in that topic.

    When Reed was at his peak I really didn't have an appreciation for his style of play. It wasn't until the mid 90's that I realized how tough he actually was.

    Kelly
    Collins
    Reich
    Flutie
    Van Pelt
    Johnson

    ok new it gets tough
    these are all guesses

    Dufek
    Munson
    Brown
    Ferrigamo

    oh screw it I'll say Plumber (I know he signed with both Washington and Denver, but I'm pretty sure he only caught passes for one of them before getting cut and retireing)

    dammit I knew it was Mathison and not Munson and I got the team wrong but were his catches all from the same QB?

    I never, ever would have guessed that Rob Johnson is the all time Bills "yards per carry" leader.

    I guess sacks don't count as negative rushing yards then.

    They do in college. In the pros they count as negative passing yardage.

    It was only during his Bills career so Jake is out.

    I think Gale Gilbert started a game.

    11. Andre is the all-time franchise leader in players that get fuglier as they get older.
