Reid Speaks on Decision to Ice Giants Kicker

NBC10Philadelphia.com

Eagles head coach Andy Reid spoke on the Eagles win over the Giants on Monday during his weekly press conference.

While Reid was happy with the win and the team's performance, he still believes the team can get better.

"We have a ton of work ahead of us," said Reid. "I don't feel like we've come close to playing our best football yet."

Reid spoke on the team finally fixing their turnover problem.

"We had no turnovers," said Reid. "We won that battle for the first time this year."

Reid was also encouraged by the team's offense, which has been inconsistent so far this season.

"I thought we found rhythm offensively," said Reid. "We were able to find a rhythm in the second half."

Reid was critical of the special team however.

"We've got some work to do on the kickoff coverage and kickoff returns," said Reid.

Finally, Reid spoke on his controversial decision to call a timeout seconds before the game ended, which gave Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes another chance to win after he missed the first field goal. When asked about Michael Vick not being a fan of him icing Tynes, Reid replied by saying, "For about one minute there, I wasn't a fan of myself either."

Fortunately for Reid and the Birds faithful, Tynes missed on his second attempt. The Eagles, now 3-1 and on top of their division, head to Heinz Field next Sunday to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
