I began to sweat, but the other big man in the auditorium didn't. Frankly, I didn't get it. Wasn't the hot glare of the spotlight shining directly on Eagles coach Andy Reid? He was the guy coming off a 38-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. He was the coach who saw his losing streak extend to eight games.
Isn't Reid one of the NFL coaches almost universally believed to be ticketed for a pink slip as soon as the 2012 season ends?
So how come this guy talked and operated like a coach who was preparing for his 15th season in Philadelphia instead of clearing out his office?
