Reese gets the Eagles’ fan base thinking.
Before anything else is said, we need to be frank. Reese has never stated that there were any issues between Schwartz or Jenkins. He’s never said Schwartz rules the roost. He never said Schwartz makes the roster decisions. Here’s some of what he did say.
On Wednesday and Thursday, Reese and Marks talked about Jenkins a lot. Ike Reese eloquently detailed his theories about how Philly wants this Eagles to be Carson Wentz‘s team and that there’s a possibility that would never happen with another strong personality with Jenkins around. Now, while Reese stated that he wasn’t saying this is why Jenkins got released, the wheels were already turning in our minds about the entire Eagles picture as fans and as members of the media.
Think back to March 17th. In his farewell to Philly, Jenkins thanked Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie. He thanked his teammates and fans, but he didn’t thank Schwartz, or the head coach, Doug Pederson. He didn’t thank the vice president and general manager, Howie Roseman.
Was that intentional? Is it wrong to say that it may have been intentional? Let’s continue?
