Andy Reid Finally Speaks…

Jan 26, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

Andy Reid chatted with Sixers.com video guy Matt Cord about the Sixers and some other topics like three of his guys playing in the Pro Bowl.

…about the Philadelphia 76ers.

Andy Reid was in South Philly last night to take in the Sixers ugly loss to the New Jersey Nets. He was never acknowledged on the jumbotron, so it’s unclear what kind of reception he would have received.

He did, however, chat with Sixers.com video guy Matt Cord about the Sixers and some other topics like three of his guys playing in the Pro Bowl.

The jokes on Twitter last night about Reid being at the game were that he was likely looking for a new defensive coordinator (Doug Collins, #1 ranked defense in the league!) but Andy said he was actually looking for some players. “I sit here and I scout. I’m looking at tight ends, defensive ends, and corners out here. There’s some potential, I’ll tell ya.”

You hear that Brent Celek, Jason Babin, and Asante Samuel? Your job security is on shaky ground.

Andy on playing basketball back in the day:
“Actually, I did. I was a little bit lighter back in those days. I still talk to my high school basketball coach about once a week. I must have done okay, I was kind of the enforcer.”
