One of Andy Reid’s biggest strengths — one he shares with Doug Pederson — is that his players love him. He connects with them.
That’s why it should come as no surprise that so many of his former players are really happy for him right now as Reid is heading back to the Super Bowl 15 years after he took the Eagles.
It seems like most of Philadelphia will be pulling for the Chiefs in two weeks.
Are you rooting for Andy Reid to win today and finally get his first Super Bowl?— John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) January 19, 2020
But we also know a bunch of Reid’s former players and co-workers from Philadelphia, some who played in Super Bowl XXXIX, will be rooting hard for Big Red in Super Bowl LIV.
Here were a few of their reactions on Sunday night:
