Assistant coaches and players all in for Andy Reid
Andy Reid may be coaching his final home game at Lincoln Financial Field. In fact, the entire Eagles coaching staff might be standing on that sideline for the last time.
While everyone in the organization tries to block that talk out, it’s there. And it will be in the back of every fan’s mind that walks through the turnstile.
“I do think it will probably be an emotional game for many of the fans. I would suspect most of them,” said offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who joined Reid’s staff in 2003. “Andy’s got Hall of Fame numbers and really the only thing we haven’t done here and he hasn’t done here is win a Super Bowl. He’s been to one and I believe five NFC championships, so he’s had a heck of a run.”
Reid himself said he hasn’t “gone there,” but his players certainly have. LeSean McCoy has long been one of Reid’s strongest supporters in the locker room, and he’s not backtracking now.
“If you sat here and tried to name five to eight coaches that are better than coach Reid, I would like to hear them,” McCoy said. “Whatever happens, happens, but I’m behind coach Reid 110 percent.”
