Andy Reid Has Extended Himself For His Players, Now Will They Get Him A TitleBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012
Will getting closer to his players and putting it all on the line for them, help Eagles head coach Andy Reid win a title? We’re going to find out because Reid has done everything his players could ask for and they say they’re eager to win him a title.
“We know we’re going to get it done”, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told CSNPhilly.com’s Derrick Gunn about his, Andy Reid’s and the Eagles organization’s pursuit of a Super Bowl championship. Vick emphasized his desire to see Reid, the guy who gave him another chance at an NFL career, coach a team to a title.
“I want him to be satisfied”, Vick told Gunn. “I want him to wear a ring. I think he deserves it. I think he should have been had it.”
Reid has always been close to his players. He was like a family member of Donovan McNabb’s, but we’re seeing him get even closer to the guys who wear the midnight green. If you remember the comments of LeSean McCoy and his agent Drew Rosenhaus, about how Reid played such a monumental role in getting a deal done.
Reid was also very instrumental in getting wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s deal done and he was the key force behind bringing Vick to town and making him the team’s number quarterback. The former number one pick in the draft is confident he can help the coach get what he wants.
“I don’t ever look over my shoulder in the game of the football”, Vick told Gunn. “I think I’m good enough to be out on the field at all times and I know what it takes to win. I’m confident in my abilities and you bring anybody in I’m still going to play my game. I’m still going to be one of the best in the game. With hardwork, I will continue to prove that.”
There’s no question that Reid has put it all on the line. He has pushed the Birds front office to get all of his guys signed to healthy extensions, now we’ll have to wait and see if they can get him that illusive title.
