Andy "gets it" a few hours too late

When asked whether he could have given backup LT Winston Justice some help in his first NFL start Andy conceded that he should have.

"I could have done a better job there, with that part," Reid said, "giving him help."

When asked why he didn't run more when the run was so successful & his QB was getting sacked 12 times...

We probably could've run it a couple more times"

I can't help but wonder whether that game might have ended up differently had Andy come to these conclusions at say... halftime!?

For what it's worth, Michael Strahan thought the same thing as the rest of us.

''Why didn't they help him?'' Strahan wondered after Umenyiora -- lining up mostly against Justice -- had an individual team-record six sacks and the Giants had a team-record 12 sacks overall Sunday night in their 16-3 victory over the Eagles.

''In Philadelphia, if the poor kid goes out and orders food, they might do something to him,'' Strahan said. ''I feel bad for the kid. I really do.''

according to many observers -- most notably Strahan -- Justice didn't get enough help.

"The tackle, move the back over there," a shocked Michael Strahan said of Justice being left to fend for himself. "I am 35. Runyan is an All-Pro. Go help the young kid. I felt in a lot of ways, you're going to run the guy. If that is his first start and that is what he gets, it is not a good thing. In Philadelphia the poor kid goes out and orders some food, they might do something to him. I feel bad for the kid, I really do."
