What Kris Jenkins and Andy Reid Have In Common

This is not meant to be a trick question. The answer is the obvious one -- nothing, other than the size of their waistline.

After an embarrassing loss to the Bucks, the Carolina DT came out and spoke the brutal truth: "As a team, collectively, we have no heart, we have no energy, we have no drive. The pride and passion that you have for this game makes you want to win. It's not about the money. It's not about looking the part. It's not about standing on the field so everybody can see you on TV and you look good. It's about pride and passion. If you have those two, if you win or if you lose, you're going to look like a football team".

Now if you ask me, this statement could not illustrate more accurately what is going on with the Eagles. If you ask Andy Reid he'll tell you we're "off by a hair" and he just needs to "do a better job next time"...

Well, Andy certain doesn't lack pride. Isn't that one of the deadly sins? (Then again, isn't gluttony also on that list?) I believe it's Reid's stubborn pride that leads to his PROFOUND lack of insight. (And that leads to him being outcoached, which leads to the team being beaten, which leads to the collective lack of pride and passion). So yeah, it's all related...
