One big difference, Ed Reed does not go out of his way to call out Goodell. Of course it should not matter but human nature is what it is. Just last week James stated that he was aiming for the knees (yes, saying your "target area" is "around the knees" is the same thing), which was an obvious barb at Goodell and the policy. Again, it should not matter but James would be better served if he shut up.
