Howard Eskin and Rob Ellis debate Andy Reid's role in LeSean McCoy's five-year contract extension with the Eagles. 5/20/12
Do you believe Andy Reid had a part in making that -- happen. Is that a good move for head coach. Absolutely Gephardt and into rosenhaus said himself he's never had a coach who was that active and and contract talks I think the great thing. If you understand the value of shady McCoy what's wrong with Andy -- getting in there and and maybe put this thing over the hump and getting it done. I think it's a great thing I want my coach to be proactive when it comes that especially if you're Andy Reid you Wear both hats. It's one thing if you're just the coach and you don't have that kind of involvement would it be done there's nothing wrong that at all I think it's -- -- up and I think I tend to agree. No not that I want to fight any reason Bob. And when he's making big -- he was more involved. The numbers are pretty simple he got the same money as Foster and William. So which doesn't take a rocket scientist. Well I could have been in the -- -- -- got done with those numbers it was -- and I. I don't like to give Drew Rosenhaus credit goes. I do not like him that much but I'll give him credit in this situation I think he's I'm not I don't think I know he's getting better. He realized he wasn't gonna get more money than the other running backs and he's got to take the deal until LeSean McCoy it's credit I think it was a really good. That he's making more money getting more money than he's ever gotten this is a deal let's -- any keep in mind so that. He fired rosenhaus about three times last year he wanted to get this thing done he'd want -- to play around and drew knew that and I think that's part of the reason why this thing got done to get us. The truth told I brought in guys. That's great many to be as good as she hour after he gets done hugging it facilities and a.
