A Muddled Future

Jeff McLane, for the Inquirer:

“I don’t know what [Mudd’s] going to do, to tell you the truth,” center Jason Kelce said Thursday. “Talked to him a little bit earlier, and I don’t think he even knows. I think a lot of it is going to depend on what happens with the entire coaching situation.”

Indirect confirmation that there is or was uncertainty within the organization about whether or not Andy Reid would return in 2012.

“There’s no way I would be where I’m at in my rookie year without Howard,” said Kelce, who was a sixth-round draft pick. “He saw something in me and then right away he started working with me on techniques and different things that would suit a guy that’s my size in the NFL.”

With a quote like that, the elephant in the room looms ever larger: why isn’t the Mudd magic also wearing off on a first round pick with better physical skills?
