In a heated exchange on the sideline, Eagles head coach Andy Reid let his defense, and in particular, Cullen Jenkins, know exactly how upset he was. The exchange took place after Reid witnessed New England Patriots’ reserves march down the field on a 13 play 80 yard touchdown drive led by Pats backup QB Ryan Mallet. What made this worse was that it was against the Eagle’s first-team defense!

“It’s an emotional game. He was fired up, I was fired up,” Reid said after the game, via NFL.com. “Those things happen. Cullen is my primary leader on that defensive line. I count on him for a lot of things. He was upset and I was upset, and we talked about it afterwards.”
