Nothing about Eagles head coach says quitter.
That’s not his makeup, and never once in the 14 years he’s been in this town has even remotely uttered the word.
So it should be no surprise, with his team completely quitting on him, and his impending firing just weeks away, Reid will not resign according to Yahoo Sports.
”I think that’d be a cop-out,” Reid said Monday when asked about resigning. ”That’s not how I see things. That’s not the way I’m wired. We’re going to keep battling and do it as a team. I’m not going to tell the guys one thing and then do the other.”
”Obviously that’s not good enough the way that we’re playing,” Reid said. ”I take full responsibility for that. I know we’re letting the fans down and the city down. I completely understand that. I completely understand how they feel on this. I feel it from the football team, our coaches and players. There are no excuses for it.”
”He’s a competitive guy and nobody wants to win more than Jeffrey,” Reid said. ”I would tell you he’s disappointed. I would tell you rightly so. He feels the same way we do that we’re letting people down in this city and so on. So, that’s what I can tell you.’
Don’t fret for Andy Reid, if Reid decides not to take time off, there will be a hand full of jobs waiting for him.
