    Andy Reid's son dies at training camp

    With the upcoming Cyclone football season, I know many of you won't care much about this but I also follow the NFL this time of year. Saw this today...

    As a Giants fan, I have no love for the Philadelphia Eagles but I respect the coaching job that Andy Reid has done. I feel terrible for him and can't imagine how much he must hurt right now.

    I think his two oldest sons had some legal trouble over the years, including drugs. Wonder if drugs were involved in this death?

    Re: Andy Reid's son dies at training camp

    He did have a checkered past, but it needs to be acknowledged, he was working to turn his life onto the right path.

    It will only be a matter of time before people start to speculate and jump to conclusions before facts are known. I wonder how long it will take someone to put the blame on Andy being an NFL coach and how it took time away from being a father.

    Drug dealing was in their past. Drugs OD is a good chance here.

    I agree. Reid did take quite a bit of time off in the past while he had two sons going thru rehab. That would be awful.

    You act like you know the kid and "Andy". I don't get the desire to jump to his defense. His father's career did have something to do with his troubles. Just kind of goes without saying. Doesn't make Reid a bad person or dad. If a former (as far as I'm told) drug user is found dead at age 29. I'm going to speculate drugs or some result of previous drug use. Not sure how that is offensive. And really, it doesn't matter.

    Whyever it happened, that's horrible for the Reid family.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Andy Reid's son dies at training camp

    Not sure what capacity, but he was helping as a strength coach for the Eagles, which is why he was at Camp.

    Sad story.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.
