Reid's post-game comments

Here's what Andy Reid had to say after the Eagles' 20-14 win over the Giants this afternoon. I paraphrased the answers so that I could get the post up quickly (Andy was not speaking in the third person): Opening statement Reid said he's proud of the guys. It was a heck of a game. The coordinators deserve credit for a great game plan. The guys executed like crazy.The third-down offense did a terrific job. What does the win do for the locker room? Reid said the guys have worked hard and pushed through the ups and downs. They are getting healthier. There are going to be highs and lows. You can talk about them, but you have to execute. How good was the offensive line? Reid said both lines played their heart out. The defensive line put pressure on Eli and stopped the running game. Great job by the front guys. Brian Westbrook's performance? Reid said Brian is playing well right now. The offensive line takes pride in getting him going. He's running like a wild man. They've got to keep him going. Talk about the timeout in the first quarter before David Akers' field goal. Reid said Rory Segrest did a great job of letting him know where the team needed to be. Reid wished he would have called the timeout earlier so they could have had the wind for both the field goal and the kickoff. Was this LJ Smith's best performance? Reid said LJ's had some good performances. He wasn't feeling well, but he played well and pushed through it. You weren't going to get him out of the game. Talk about the commitment to the run. Reid said it was working well so the conditions were more conducive to running than throwing. Donovan also did a nice job when he had opportunities. When did he start game-planning for the wind? Reid said his administrative assistant was telling him about the wind early in the week so everyone had a hand in this win. How did third-string guard Nick Cole play? Reid said Cole is a good player. He hasn't looked at the film but it looked like Cole played well. Reid said he has a lot of trust in Cole, and Cole can play guard or center. Why does it take until December for Reid's teams to play well? Reid said he can't answer that. He just knows the team played well. Why was Reggie Brown deactivated? Reid said guys were banged-up in certain spots. They needed an extra running back with Buckhalter being out and Westbrook being a little gimpy
