    Andy Reid to take a month off to deal with his sons and their issues.


    He's got a couple boys with some serious, serious issues. Wouldn't wish that on anyone, and hope they are able to work out their problems.

    Two questions:

    Psychology Question: Is their situation perhaps partially due to a part time/ absentee father who's devotion to his profession exceeds his focus on family. (Note: purely conjecture on my part, don't know if this is the case or not, so feel free to clarify if I'm walking down a wrong way road).

    Football Question: Impact to the Eagles to have their coach/director of operations missing pre-draft? Can he give the focus needed when he does return or do his family issues serve as too much of a distraction?

    I don't recall seeing anything on the board on this subject, but if I'm d_b-ing any of this, a thousand pardons.

    He needs to take another month off to get his health in order. That picture they showed of him this morning on Cold Pizza was not flattering. He'll probably have heart surgery in a the next two years, that's if he doesn't explode first.

    Those crazy Mormons...
  4. BYM posted this earlier, but it's definitely not a D_B because of the misleading thread title.

    I wish more than anything that the people on here could actually properly title threads... That's the biggest reason why there are frequently several threads on the same topic...

    The reason why this won't negatively impact the Eagles is because Reid has surrounded himself with some of the best scouts and assistants in the business.

    Given what happened to Dungy's son a little more than a year ago, Reid has to make sure he's able to do as much as he can to help his kids... I can't imagine being the son of a NFL coach is the easiest thing to be.

    now's when all the bleeding-heart columnists get their chance to blame nfl coaching for the woes of their kids. as if the kids of nfl coaches are the only ones that are effed up.

    Caller on WFAN today

    Caller: "Joe this is Ivan from Brooklyn"

    Joe: "Whats on your mind Ivan"

    Caller : I don't think a months enough time for Andy Reid to straighten out his problem

    Joe: I don't know you can get a lot done in a month

    Sports talk radio - you have to love it. We are now debating rehab times.

    So, why, exactly is this considered 'breaking news' by Yahoo?

    Because it involves the NFL.
