Alex Smith says Andy Reid is always treating guys to cheeseburgers


For most people the cheeseburger is merely a food item, but for Andy Reid the cheeseburger is a way of life. Andy doesn’t merely use the cheeseburger for sustenance, he uses it as a means of expressing love and affection for the players on his team. Indeed for all humanity.

Alex Smith recently talked to NFL Network about Andy Reid and his cheeseburger-centric philosophy of human relations. Smith was asked to name an Andy Reid saying but he couldn’t think of one. He could only think of cheeseburgers.

“He’s a big cheeseburger guy. So he’s always treating us to cheeseburgers. That’s the one thing that’s always coming out,” Smith said.

What does a player have to do to earn a cheeseburger from Andy Reid, asked NFL Network.

“Just be on the team. You just have to be on the team and he’s going to treat you to a cheeseburger,” Smith said.

Just be on the team and you will get a cheeseburger from Andy Reid. That could be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard. Why can’t everything be as wonderfully simple as Andy Reid’s A Cheeseburger for All philosophy?

Send Andy Reid and his cheeseburgers to Ukraine and I bet that whole situation gets smoothed out in an instant.

If aliens ever come to earth? Don’t send some scientist or ambassador to communicate with them. Just send Andy Reid bearing a tray of delicious cheeseburgers. And there will be harmony in the universe.

    Wasn’t one of the first things chip kelly did in Philly was to end some of Andy’s food choices – like Taco Tuesdays?

    We’ll see if that helps the Eagles. I think jury is still out. Didn’t watch them too closely but they seemed to jump on teams early then they were slowed down quite a bit in 2nd half. did they take foot off the gas or were teams figuring out kelly’s offense?
