Well, our quiet Easter evening has certainly become a little more lively.
Eagles coach Andy Reid will speak to reporters about the trade of Donovan McNabb at 9:30 P.M. ET. We’ll also hop on a conference call with other reporters and Reid at 10 PM, so leave any snarky questions you want asked in the comments, even though we probably won’t ask them.
Reid has always been portrayed as McNabb’s staunchest ally in the Eagles organization. It will be interesting to hear his words about why he’s so confident that McNabb won’t hurt the Eagles when he faces them.
Actually, it probably won’t be that interesting because Reid doesn’t give away much when he speaks. He’s already released a quick statement.
“This was a very tough decision,” Reid said. “He carried this
organization to new heights. We thank him for everything.”
