Jeffrey Lurie fired Andy Reid and then gave him a football today.

The Eagles released video of Lurie giving Reid a game ball for being the winningest coach in Eagles history.

Reid and Lurie stood in front of team employees this morning in the cafeteria at the NovaCare Complex, where the scene looked more like an Employee of the Month celebration than the firing of a football coach.

Said Reid:

“Alright. You guys are way too kind. Way too kind. I have a hard time standing before people without a few boos involved. But I’m taking it. I’m taking it all in. These have been the greatest 14 years of my life. My staff is appreciative. These players that have banked on you guys and the great work that you’ve done is phenomenal. Like Jeffrey said, sometimes change is good, and I know Jeffrey does nothing that isn’t the best for the organization. SoI know the next guy that comes in will be phenomenal. And the ultimate goal is a Super Bowl, right? So everybody in this room, I wish you a big on that finger in the near future. Hail to the Eagles, baby! Alright? Thank you."

 

My, how moving.

    @robert…can you please explain “class” and give me some examples? Before I argue, I would love to hear you tell me what class they exhibit to the Philly fans.
