Speaking to NBC 10’s Vai Sikahema, Castillo said he would still take a bullet for his master Andy Reid:
“The thing that hurts is that I let him down. I let the organization down. You know the way you and I were brought up. When somebody gives you an opportunity, you produce. And I let them down. I let the city of Philadelphia down. My job was to bring a championship and I didn’t get it done.
I feel bad for coach Reid, that I didn’t get it done for him, for the city, and for Mr. Lurie.”
You said once, you’d take a bullet for him.
“I’d still do that right now. All we ask in life is an opportunity. And I had an opportunity. And what hurts is you got to take advantage of opportunity, that’s life. That’s what you have to do, and I did not take advantage of opportunity. It hurts my family, it hurts coach Reid, it hurts Mr. Lurie, it hurts the city.”
It's hurting me. I'm crying over here.
If I were Juan, which I’m not, I’d be upper-decking every one of Big Red’s toilets right now. WHAT? IT’S JUST WATER. IF I CAN SHIT IN ONE SIDE, I CAN SHIT IN THE OTHER!! IT’S ALL THE SAME, RIGHT ANDY? ALL THE FUCKING SAME. WATER IS WATER. FOOTBALL IS FOOTBALL. THE GUY WHO COACHES THE OFFENSIVE LINE CAN JUST HOP RIGHT UP TO RUN THE DEFENSE, YES? HOW THE FUCK DO YOU LIKE IT, FLIPPING SHIT AROUND ON A WHIM? IT’S NOT THE SAME, ANDY!!!!
Anyway, that’s me. Juan is decidedly more forgiving.
Heartbreaking video after the jump.
