“We’ll see, but all indications are that he probably will be,” said Lurie.
Obviously, this is a difficult time for Reid, his family, friends, and the entire Eagles organization. And Reid’s presumed quick return to work after the death of his 29-year-old son will undoubtedly raise some eyebrows. But it shouldn’t.
“I think what you’ll see from Andy is that desire to be around another loving extended family,” Lurie added.
People are far too quick to criticize what they don’t know, and what they don’t understand. Moreover, every person deals with pain and tragedy in a different way. So while Reid’s prompt return might seem insensitive or hasty to some, those people aren’t in his home, nor do they know his family, and what’s best for it. Is Reid making the right choice? Maybe. I don’t know. But if he wants to take a month–that’s his right. And if he wants to come back on Thursday night–that’s his right, too.
