Andy Reid to World: I Got Good Airfare!
The Philadelphia Eagles are currently without a defensive coordinator after the firing of Sean McDermott, who was just hired to fill that position by the Carolina Panthers. Teams around the league are actively interviewing and hiring in order to fill vacancies in their coaching staffs, meaning that there is intense competition by the 32 teams in the NFL for the same people. Sounds like a great time to take a vacation! Which is exactly what Coach Andy Reid is doing as I write this. Not like I'm bitter or anything.
WIP 610 this morning pondered if the timing of Reid's holiday signaled a growing division between the Eagles front office and Reid. My first hand information tells another story. I took this matter to Twitter earlier today, wondering the following:
@sports_muse: Why is Andy Reid on vacation as the Eagles seek to fill the defensive coordinator position?
Minutes later, I had my answer.
@CoachAndyReid Coach I got a good deal on air fair RT @sports_muse: Why is Andy Reid on vacation as the Eagles seek to fill the defensive coordinator position?
So there you have it.
In case you didn't realize, I am totally kidding. @CoachAndyReid is one of several parody accounts for Philadelphia sports figures on Twitter. There's even an account for Reid's stomach, called @AndyReidsBelly. Check them out when you the Eagles have caused you so much pain you need to laugh rather than cry.
