To piggyback on my little rant yesterday about the Philadelphia Eagles’ linebacker rotation conundrum, I have to point out something that Andy Reid stated yesterday.
Reid was asked for an explanation about the apparent game plan to rotate and play all 6 of their linebackers. As you might now, this concept irritates the crap out of me, and now even moreso after hearing what Reid said (courtesy of Eagles press releases):
“We had success with it last year; towards the end of last year. So, the guys know their role, they can focus in on it and they can go. They’re all interchangeable, which is a good thing, and they all know each other’s position and have gotten reps at all the positions so it works out well.”
Umm, come again Andy? The first thing he said was “we had success with it last year” but then had to correct and/or clarify himself by adding “towards the end of last year.”
Either which way, the man is delusional. The linebackers stunk ALL of last year. Hence...
