Big Red has the balls to make the following comment regarding the Eagles approach to this years' draft...
"You can't afford to draft for needs," he said. "People fall into that. I try not to do that. You understand what your weaknesses are and if that player's there and he's a quality player you take him. If that need is there and he's quality, then you take him. But if there's a way better player there at a different position, then you take that player. You don't want to get caught up in getting someone who's not that good just to try to fill a need."
Wait....WHAT?!? These comments coming from the man who traded OUT of the first round the past 2 seasons. I recall Felix Jones, Rashard Mendenhall, Chris Johnson, and Dustin Keller all being on the board when the 19th pick came around last year.
It's not even the start of the season and Reid's mouth is pissing me off. Maybe it's better for everyone if he just goes back to saying nothing. Just give us the throat clears and how you need to do a better job!
