While Andy Reid started off his postgame presser with a couple of gems — including the amazing “we’ve got to learn to win football games as coaches and as players.” — Brent Celek actually said what most Eagles fans were probably thinking about following the ugly loss to the Detroit Lions.
“We can’t keep sitting here saying, ‘Oh, we can fix this or we can fix that.’ We’re not going to be a playoff team. We’re not going to be a contender for the Super Bowl. Enough talking about it, we’ve just got to do it,” Celek said.
He also took responsibility for the loss with his would-be touchdown drop and PI call that negated another touchdown.
Granted he did drop that one touchdown, but I don’t think Brent Celek is anywhere near the top of the list of guys to put the blame of yesterdays loss on.
Andy Reid, Juan Castillo, and the disappearing defense would all trump him there.
As for Celek, he takes an absolute beating game in and game out, speaks the truth afterwards, and even tries to take sole responsibility for losses. It’s no wonder people like him.
