    What is he going to do if he quits mid year? Visit his kids in jail more?

    Coaching will not only keep his mind off of it, but bring him a paycheck as well. What can he do? They are in their 20's.
    It sounds to me like Andy Reid might be part of the problem & not part of the cure......

    O'Neill said both boys had been overmedicated throughout much of their lives and that Britt got hooked on painkillers when he suffered a football injury in high school.
    I just wonder out of all these drugs these kids have been taking all their lives, how much of it was prescribed by the Eagles team physician at the request of the coach?

    Yes, that is terrible for the Reid family.
    But it is too late now to start focusing on family.
    They are both in their 20's and in jail.
    They needed to have more parental guidance in their childhood and teen years.
    Being a head coach, or any coach of an NFL team is not a 9-5 job.
    Most of them are never home.
    I have read stories where they work until the wee hours of the morning during the season then are back in at 6 the next morning.
    It is a very demanding and stressful job.
    That is no way to raise a family.
    In order for it to work there has to be a very strong maternal prescence in the household.
    The mother has to do the parenting by herself in most instances.
    Who ever would have thought that Tony Dungy would have a child that would commit suicide?
    Not me.
    But, it makes you wonder if Tony Dungy would have walked away from coaching when Tampa fired him, would his son be alive today?

    PHILADELPHIA — While it sure seems what happened to Andy Reid and his family is a crime, it isn’t as far as the NFL is concerned.........

    Andy Reid is digging in.

    The Philadelphia Eagles coach insisted he will not resign Friday, a day after a judge sentenced Reid's two sons to prison and likened his home to a "drug emporium."........

    The NFL policy, however, isn’t so clear to some players.

    “On the one hand, it’s your personal life,” one Eagle said. “What if it was the athlete you were talking about? Would the league come down on us? It’s one of those things where it’s your life, but he’s also representative of the league.”

    Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill alluded to the Reid house as “a drug emporium” during the sentencing, raising immediately the dog fighting case of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.

    Before suspending Vick, get-tough NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told him, “people living in your house and people on your property is your responsibility.”
    I was watching NFLN last night and they had some interviews with the Eagle players in the locker room after practice, and a couple of them said it was a double standard.
    I tend to agree.

    The players are on a lot tighter leash and they don't get the benefit of the doubt.

    Not complaining, just pointing that out.

    I guess my point is look what happen to Dungy. His Kid I'm sure was showing signs and then he took his life. Sorry buy it's family first business second in my world. Andy needs to be there for his kids. He has money and I'm sure mentally he is not all there anywhere.
