Reid Says Dispute Between Assistant Coaches is Over

Andy Reid said that he spoke to both Marty Mornhinweg and Jim Washburn after their sideline spat, that the offensive coordinator and defensive line coach cleared the air and that the Eagles had moved on and were focused on Thursday’s game at Seattle.

“It’s an emotional game,” Reid said Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. “It doesn’t matter if you’re coaches or players, things happen. You take care of business like grown men. They’ve talked, I’ve talked and they’ve worked it out and we’re fine here.” The confrontation took place midway through the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Patriots. The Eagles were leading, 10-0, at the time. There was some initial speculation that Washburn confronted Mornhinweg because he was calling too many pass plays and the defense was gassed as a result.

“I know that was reported, that’s not the case,” Reid said. “It wasn’t an offense versus defense thing.” While one source told The Inquirer on Monday that an accidental bump initiated the tiff, another source said Tuesday that a derogatory comment by Washburn to Mornhinweg started the quarrel.
