Andy Reid Admits That His Personnel Decisions Were Terrible

Voila_Capture 2014-06-03_09-04-25_AM

Andy Reid was part of an NFL Career Development Symposium at the Wharton School on Saturday. He was asked a question about his shortcomings. Zach Berman brings you the response:

“About a year ago, I found out what I wasn’t good at because [I was] out the door,” said Reid, now the Kansas City Chiefs coach. “I went back, and I looked at it, and . . . I drifted away from the thing I love doing most, and that was coaching.”

“I took [myself] completely out, dealt more with personnel . . . stopped calling the plays, all those things,” Reid said.

“[Focusing on coaching in KC has] also allowed me to . . . try to keep my personality in the room and do what I like doing,” Reid said. “I learned a lesson. I thought I stepped out [in Philly] for the right reasons. It probably wasn’t the right thing to do.”

“I’m not saying [it was] the wrong way to go; we had a lot of success in Philadelphia,” Reid said. “But where I was in my career, this is what I want to do. And it worked out where I could actually do that.”

Translation: When I got fired last year, I realized that I wasn’t good at, maybe, 50% of my job. Really, I just handed all the coaching duties over to Marty, owner of a 5-27 career head coaching record. That was dumb. And so, too, was drafting Danny Watkins. I kept telling people that I had to do a better job when, in fact, I wasn’t capable of doing it. I didn’t know what I was doing in the front office! In KC, I’m just focusing on the bbq coaching. That’s what I’m good at. I think. Also: I shouldn’t have let Tammy make the decorating decisions.

    Have you informed River Winds of the types of golfers that are going to be attending the golf outing? I am thinking 3 kegs on the course, pound of cheeba, and a kilo of the bugga sugaa should do us just right. 🙂

      Well if the golfers are anything like the West Deptford locals, being a complete degenerate alcoholic/druggy on the course will be encouraged and expected.

    Give Chipper a few more years and this city will wish Big Red was on the sidelines with his dinner menu.
