Concussion Updates and Andy Reid Feels Your Pain

Kyle Scott - November 19, 2012

A deceased Andy Reid sauntered to the podium at the NovaCare Complex today for his weekly press conference. This will surprise you, but he said he takes responsibility, has to do a better job, and that this is fixable. He also talked about Michael Vick’s and LeSean McCoy’s concussions. 

Vick: he’s “improving,” but his ImPACT test came back below baseline (not back to normal), so he is still at Stage 1 in recovery. 

Stage 1 is the first of five stages in recovering from a concussion, according to Sportsmd.com. It includes light aerobic exercise, no football.

McCoy: he has a headache and is also still at Stage 1. It will be taken day-by-day.

Reid was asked about stepping down and said it would be a cop-out, and it’s “not how he’s wired.” He also said that Jeffrey Lurie is “disappointed.”

Reid feels your pain, too: "I know we’re letting the fans down and the city down. I understand how they feel on this."

Well, now I feel better.

    He looked relieved today. I bet Jeff officially told him it was now ok to begin looking for a new house near BYU.

    Yes, he’s not wired to leave 7 million dollars on the table just like the rest of us you numb skull! Sorry kids, but mommy gets a little upset when her kiddies EXPECT results that don’t make sense. Hand Mommy her Rum and coke please. No, not the cola.

    I think I hate the players more at this point. Hennery should get to kick every one but Ryans in the nuts.

    What is the point of firing Reid before the season ends? All they are going to do is make that idiot Marty interim head coach and absolutely nothing will change
    The LAST thing this team needs is Marty taking ownership of the offense completely and calling 80 pass plays a game for Foles to get his head bashed into the ground.
    Everyone will be gone by season’s end. And that’s inclusive of that joke of a defensive coordinator they hyped up for 2 years now

    If you don’t think Jeff isn’t sending away his fat buddy with a multi-million severance package you’re fucking stupid, Mom. Plus Andy will be unemployed for a month at best. A lot of desperate teams out there.

    I normally never have this mentality but please, for the love of god and all that is holy, LOSE OUT EAGLES. It would the worst situation if they somehow string together empty wins at the end of the season and not get a top 5 draft pick.

    I’d like to take a moment and point out a dumb Marcus Hayes statement from his article today:
    “Now 3-7, having lost six in a row, the Eagles have one neighbor in the NFC: the Panthers and Rams.”
    He can’t write OR count.

    @Phil, Don’t talk to your mother like that.
    Listen you dumb fucking snot nosed punk. If Andy steps down, which is quitting, or breaking of his contract, you better goddamned believe Lurie will keep the MILLIONS of FUCKING DOLLARS the Eagles owe him. Where as if he’s fired, they owe him every cent. Go read a fucking book or something you fucking FUCKTARD! You Phil are why people think Philadelphia fans are Retarded, that and the movie Rocky.

    Did I say he was stepping down you stupid crossdressing dicksuck? Severance packages are usually not associated with resignations, if you ever had a job and didn’t live on welfare in Kensington you might know that. Lurie could have confirmed with Andy that he’s done at the end of the season without actually letting him go today. Now go back on the corner and get back to work.

    @Phil, The fucking piece that your fucking fucktarded brother Kyle wrote, the one I was commenting on most certainly clearly said “stepping down”. Now, just know I wouldn’t be a crossdressing dick sucker if your Father could meet my sexual needs. Remember this when your hooker of a wife asks you to suck her strap on like you enjoy it. You better damn well enjoy it too if you don’t want her cross dressing and sucking dicks for fun. Now go get mommy her damn MD 20/20, it’s past my lunch time.

    Andy will not lose any money. Jeff Lurie will give him a handsome severance package and like others have said he will be unemployed a day.

    NFL coaches don’t get severance packages dickheads, they get the money up front. SMH, retards….

    So MM you’re telling us that billionaire playboy Lurie isn’t going to give his chubby buddy a yacht, mansion or make an insane donation to some Garrett Reid Memorial fund as a thank you for the last 15 years in addition to his salary? Not fuckin’ likely, SMH @ u retard.

    All these people who say Andy will be unemployed a day are probably right. If he wants a job, he will undoubtedly get one.
    I hope he decides not to jump back in right away. The man looks burned out. He’s coaching like he’s burned out. He lost a son a few months ago. For his own well-being, I hope that he decides to use his millions and take some time off to recharge and enjoy his family.
    Andy Reid hasn’t been able to bring us a Lombardi trophy, but I’ve never doubted that he, personally, is a good man. Agree with his ways or not, I don’t think anyone can argue that he has given this his all. I’m happy to see him leave town, but appreciate what he tried to do.
    The NFL isn’t going anywhere, and coaches get fired all the time. Personally, I think it would be beneficial for him to give himself a rest. I hope he does.

    Morandini, you must be new here. That kind of thoughtful, well-put statement has absolutely no place on these comment threads.

    Dante, the only thing Reid will get when he leaves is what’s guaranteed in his contract and a handshake along with a letter of recommendation. Lurie is a rich businessman. He did not get this way by giving his fucking money away for no good goddamned reason.Why do so many Fucktards in Philly think that money is given away? Are all of on fucking gov’t assistance or fucking what? Go suck dicks for money like me, Your Mother.
    Morandini, how much do you like middle aged women with saggy tits and an echo chamber for a caboose?

    Born into a well-to-do Boston family, Lurie’s grandfather Philip Smith (d. 1961) built the family fortune through movie theater operator General Cinema and other investments.
    That’s how Lurie made his money, per Forbes. Stick to being an unfunny fag on blogs until you understand how facts work.

    the team has given up. It’s so evident every single play. I can’t believe the strength coming into the season was the db’s, line, and improved lb’s. They all look like shit- besides ryans. Kurt coleman blows, the rookies are playing worse, there’s no such thing as a de on our team. The receiving corps- wtf happened there?

    I don’t want Reid to quit or be fired. I want that miserable fat fuck to stay and suffer with the rest of us until the very end.
