Tweets By Eagles Players Concerning the Death of Garrett Reid

It was obviously a shock to current Eagles players to find out that Andy Reid’s son, Garrett, who was staying in the same dorms where the entire team was staying for training camp, was found dead.   Many of those current Eagles players couldn’t help but let their feelings be known publicly, so went to Twitter.

i know how Andy must be feeling i lost my oldest son (21) no words can make him feel better only time family and their love for each other will help, time softens the wound but it never goes away God watch over the Reid family !

the coach may have suspected something weeks beforehand, his wife & kids are on the west coast, Andy was going to training camp ( HE WASN’T LEAVING GARRETT ALONE IN THE HOUSE ) I have a feeling the cops already knew the deal before Howie Roseman’s press conference & the autopsy ( needle marks ?? the contents of Garretts car ?? or overnite video surveilence of the univ & parking lot ??

It strikes me as unusual that players have explicitly stated “we love you” to Andy and his family. There have been others than those listed here, according to what I have read at some other sites. Despite what many in the city of Philadelphia think of him, Reid is very respected throughout the NFL, and especially by those players who have been Eagles. I thought this moring that I really just didn’t want to hear about this. Not in a callous or disinterested way, but rather in that football is a diversion. It is a bit harder when real life intrudes on our passtimes, the places we turn to get away from the pressures of life. I am looking forward to being at the stadium on Thursday evening to have the chance to applaud for him, cheer a little bit and hope that it gives him some sense of support. Maybe it will help him find at least a moment of peace.

Breaking news, Garrett died of Drug use

August 6, 2012 11:30 pm

Andy may have known something weeks beforehand, His wife was on the west coast with the kids, Andy was going to training camp, in other words ( he wasn’t leaving Garrett alone in the house.) only he knows. I understand some of people’s feelings. We have a society where in Philly people die daily from drug abuse.
and while the rest of the folks in the area wag their fingers, when a prominent Coaches kid passes away, it’s all of a sudden a tragedy, Garrett had opportunities many others don’t get. His brother is an employee of Temple university ( WITH A FELONY GUN CHARGE ) again , many of us don’t get these opportunities, as Im watching the news tonite, the press is being very compassionate to the Reid family, because the cause of death ( DRUGS ) is not the headline. and it could have been. THE MEDIA HAD NO PROBLEM HIGHLIGHTING WHITNEY HOUSTON’S CAUSE OF DEATH. interesting society that we live in

I’m pretty sure the Reid’s live in Cali in the offseason u may be grasping at straws a little.
