Andy Reid got some pretty outraged reporters to believe the Eagles would go back to work on their tackling in the wake of their mostly pitiful lack of tackling in the win over the Giants.
Told the press he might even take out the tackling mats - padded mats to cushion falls - to get it right.
What the knuckleheads didn't hear was the biggest offenders were the veterans who play regulalrly. Reid didn't name names but Quintin Mikell, Asante Samuel and Will Witherspoon should would like to have the Giants game back.
Think Reid would expose any of those guys to tackling drills on mats? Thank you.
Truth be told, Reid still is second-guessing his decision to have Shawn Andrews run gassers at training camp. Andrews' back was fine through the minicamps and the offseason work, you know. Sure enough it was the gassers - series of sprints where you run to one side of the field, bend over and touch the ground and run back - that put Andrews back on the operating table again.
