If you can stand to watch it, there’s video of the whole thing here.
UPDATE: Now an even better Kool-Aid GIF.

Don’t worry. After Andy gets his guys on that team, they’ll be just as terrible as the Eagles.
Typical douchebag statement. I guess you weren’t an Eagles fan in the mid-late 90s before Reid got here to see what awful football really looked like.
You’re right. Inheriting garbage like Bobby Taylor, Brian Dawkins, Troy Vincent, and Jeremiah Trotter is tough to come back from. Those players were horrible for us.
Yeah and the year before he got here the team with those players was 3- 13.
The Eagles sucked, with the exception of a few blips on the radar, from 1982 – 1999 and under Reid they were a contender every year but one from 2000-2010.
He also drafted players like Brian Westbrook, Donovan McNabb, Corey Simon, Trent Cole, DeSean, Maclin and Shady…and who knows how Foles, Cox and Boykins pan out. Not to mention, he drafted both Kolb and Feeley, and made them look good enough to have teams trade for these players (who were clearly awful). Troy Vincent was a free-agent. if you wanna go that route, Reid brought in Runyan, TO, Kearse, etc.
He is also the same guy that drafted Graham over Earl Thomas and D. Watkins 1st, J. Jarret 2nd, and B.Huges 3rd which none of those 3 are on the team. He left this team a mess and inherited a KC team with 7 pro bowlers.
Im surprised about this many happy comments about Reid. I swore I was the only one who liked him.
STFU, you sound like a bitter ex girlfriend that got dumped. Get over it, your ex coach is happy somewhere else
Good for him. God bless him. Very happy Andy is happy and having success. the best years of my life as a sports fan in Philly was the Andy Reid era. Other than the fact he brought the destestable Michael Vick here, I have nothing but good feelings and memories of the guy.
The fact that his success is a thorn in the eye of WIP hosts and listeners is an added bonus.
The people his success makes miserable is almost enough to make up for the national media cunts implying that the 4-12 mess he left here was because Philly fans boo or something.
The team was 4-12 because they (Reid, Banner, Laurie, et al) panicked and went off script for what worked for years. They brought in mercenaries and people of low character and as a result you got the dreck from last season.
I’m a WIP listener, and seeing Reid celebrate doesn’t bother me in the least. As far as I’m concerned, he’s in another galaxy. Let the fat man have his day, he earned it. Meanwhile, you must not have been around here for very long, because the best day in MY life as a Philly sports fan was in 2008 when the Phillies won the World Series, or did you forget about the parade the baseball team gave the city’s fans for winning a championship, something Reid never delivered. At the end of the day, the Reid era could ultimately be best described as all sizzle but no steak.
If you read what I wrote I said my favorite “years” not playoff series or season.
The weekly intensity and fervor for the football team in the city that went along with the success from 2000-2004; 2006-2010 was a stretch that hasn’t been matched before or since for me as a fan.
As much as I love the Phillies and that World Series, the term all sizzle and no steak can be applied to them from 2009-2012. (2013 was just putrid).
SALES ARE DOWN!!
You may be the type of person who has trouble letting go of things Kyle…maybe, jury is still out.
Good for him. He needed a change of scene and a fresh start. Lots of bad memories here for him I am sure. No, he never delivered the big one and may never deliver in KC either. But all I know is that when the Eagles were good during the first years of his tenure, they were very good and respected and considered one of the elite teams. Loved watching those teams play. It also makes me happy to know that cretins like the morons on the WIP Morning show (Angelo and his ass kissers) are ticked off about it.
I just “punched myself in the dick”.
I’m happy for Andy. You can’t coach in the same city indefinitely in the NFL, that’s the way it works. He’s doing a great job in KC. I think Reid has learned from his mistakes. He’s delegating more responsibility. He is set up there for a good 5-7 year run. After that I could see him moving to the front office or retiring.
I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before. “No one has the right to destroy another person’s belief by demanding empirical evidence.” by Ann Landers.
