What a piece of work. Sal is “flabbergasted” that the Cardinals have any interest in Reid.
Check out this PFT story. Classic Sal. The man has a gift for ripping Andy Reid and the Eagles.
Sal’s “logic” is that the Cards gave the Eagles a major beatdown. Why hire the guy who your team dominated? Also, the Eagles were a handful of plays away from going 0-16. Reid was really awful and the Cards are nuts to be interested in Big Red.
Sal fails to point out the Eagles were a couple of plays from starting the year 5-1. If that happens, who knows how things go after the bye. Castillo isn’t fired. The defense doesn’t have the nightmare ATL-NO-DAL-WAS-CAR-DAL stretch. I’m not saying we’d have shut those teams down, but if things had stayed intact…I bet the D would have played better. I sure don’t think the team falls apart the way it did.
Anyway…you want Reid for his past success, not what he did in 2012. There’s a Catch-22 in play. If the Eagles had been good this year, Reid wouldn’t be on the market. Arizona might be lucky that the team did struggle and he is available.
Finally, using Sal’s “logic”…the Rams made a mistake when they hired Jeff Fisher, who went 6-10 in his final year with the Titans, and the Broncos made a mistake when they hired John Fox, who went 2-14 in his final year with the Panthers. Idiots.
I don’t know why Sal hates Reid, but it will be interesting to see how Sal covers the Eagles now that he’s gone.
