There’s nothing quite like an Andy Reid press conference after a loss. The short, almost hostile replies. The non-answers to fair questions about, I don’t know, his team’s pitiful performance.
Here are experts of the “best” parts from Reid’s presser on Monday:
On what it speaks to that the team keeps losing fourth quarter leads:
“That we’ve got to do a better job in the fourth quarter.”*
*This one is my favorite.
On whether he’s seen the necessary anger out of his players following this game, and whether he feels like they’re angry at this point with being 3-5:
“I think they’re disappointed, as the coaches are.”
On whether he thinks Rodgers-Cromartie is playing well:
“He’s going to keep working on it.”
On whether there is something he can do as a coach to help the team hold a lead or come back, or whether it has to come from the players:
“Listen, we can all do better. I’m telling you, we can all do better.
On whether it is safe to say that maybe he took on too much with all of the new pieces and changes that had to be crammed in over a short period of time:
“I don’t worry about all that, welcome the challenge, right? So I don’t worry about all that. I’ve seen this football team play good football, and we’re going to get this thing right and continue to play good football, and that’s the approach I’m taking.”
On whether there is too much talent on this team to be at 3-5 right now:
“Well listen, I know how good we can be, and so as coaches and players we need to make sure that we do this consistently and become more consistent and so that’s my responsibility to get it done, and that’s the way we’ll approach it tomorrow.” Continue reading ‘Andy Reid Gives Profound Insight Into Team’s 3-5 Record.
