The man is on medications and is seeing a therapist. It is not some excuse or illness that Andrews fabricated.
And despite Andrews opening up about his depression the Eagles continue to fine Andrews $15,000 a day. Are you freaking kidding me?!? Would it of been so difficult for Reid or Lurie to hold a short press conference after practice today and let the public and Andrews know that the team is behind him, that the team cares about his well-being? Seems it was too difficult.
Instead of briefly mentioning the Andrews situation during his press conference today, Marty Mornhinweg decided instead to continue to praise the efforts of Max Jean-Gillies. Good for Maxie boy, but how do you think such comments are making the already troubled Andrews feel? I am starting to see why the Lion fans called Marty a moron!
And leave it up to Dave Spadaro to put the icing on the cake. Following the public comments of Andrews, Spadaro proceeds to write an article about what a great day it was at Eagles camp yesterday. The man has line after line after stupid line of idiotic, praising comments for Lurie. But I blame myself on this one, what was I even doing reading a Spadaro article!
I am not asking for the Eagles to throw Andrews a big pity parade. But it is too much to ask for them to show a little compassion for Andrews and others also suffering from depression?
And people wonder why the Eagles Front Office gets such a bad rap and the city is disgusted with them. One word...arrogance.
