Andy Reid on what went wrong in Philly: I had stopped calling plays

+

Reid fielded a question about evaluating his shortcomings. It did not take much time for Reid to answer. "About a year ago, I found out what I wasn't good at because (I was) out the door," said Reid, now the Kansas City Chiefs coach. "I went back, and I looked at it, and I drifted away from the thing I love doing most, and that was coaching." Reid said he had a "phenomenal" offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg, whom he entrusted with the offense. Former offensive coordinator Brad Childress used to tell Reid not to let his personality "leave the room," and Reid said that happened during his final years in Philadelphia. "I took (myself) completely out, dealt more with personnel, stopped calling the plays, all those things," Reid said.
