Eagles Andy Reid loses it

The 'new' Andy Reid exploded on the sideline Monday night after the Eagles' first team offense have up a 13-play, 80-yard scoring drive to quarterback Ryan Mallet and the New England Substitutes, who rested their best players.

Watch "Andy Reid and Cullen Jenkins Argue on Sideline" on YouTube

When Reid chastised the defensive line, Cullen Jenkins jumped up and got into the face of Reid, who told him to sit down.
Jenkins a class act.

Jenkins refused to comply; line coach Jim Washburn intervened. Teammate Derek Landri walked Jenkins away.

The mild-manner Jenkins is the last Eagle you would expect to get in the grill of Reid. No Eagle works harder than Jenkins, a class act on and off the field.

And while Reid said he and Jenkins are OK, and Jenkins agreed it was something that happened in the heat of the moment, the entire D-line and Washburn will be talking about this episode for a long time.

What matters is what the players after the game show. In moments of play can happen all the players are concentrated, altered or lot can be thinking, and involuntary acts can happen but in the end we know it's not personal. Besides the final act shows what for them is the team above the personal

I think Andy Reid is going to end up leaving the Eagles for personal reasons.
