Andy Reid Thrilled By Home-Crowd FeelDecember 10th, 2012
In what was a gross exaggeration about the numbers of Philly fans present and soiling the 2002 Buccaneers Super Bowl reunion yesterday, Eagles head coach Andy Reid raved about the cheers he was hearing after the game.
“The fans were unbelievable. I mean, you gotta giv’em credit. They were out here. At times I wasn’t sure who had more fans, us or them,” Reid said.
Reid went on to say he wasn’t sure whether the final Eagles touchdown to the end the game was reversed by officials because of the loud crowd reaction when the final score was in the books.
Screw, Andy Reid. There was a recognizable, audible Eagles-fan presence yesterday, but there had to be about 90 percent Bucs fans there in the full-house crowd of 64,941.
Joe suspects Reid is simply so used to being booed on his home turf that some cheers surprised him.
