Don’t expect Andy Reid to talk to you until at least year two.

Andy Reid is one of the greatest coaches of his era and possesses one of the more creative offensive minds the league has seen over the last two decades. It's not unusual for a coach to have a set of rules and guidelines that they live by, and one that was revealed recently might shock you. Apparently, he doesn't speak to rookies.

On a recent episode of I Am Athlete with Brandon Marshall and Adam "Pacman" Jones, DeSean Jackson and LeSean "Shady" McCoy said that that's how they operate. Marshall and Jones were taken aback by this statement from Jackson. Two of the Pro Bowlers in the room were surprised by this statement.

The sound of a coach not speaking to rookies is old school. You have to earn it with him. The players want rookies to come in, be humble and ready to work, and earn their spot on the team no matter what round they were drafted in.

One of the main themes of The Unwritten Rules of the NFL was that rookies shouldn't be seen and heard. Eric likes to compare a player's first year in the league to a college freshman. At the beginning, you start all over again.

You have to go back to the beginning if you want to stay in the league. You came from a place where you were the center of attention.

Even if you were a sixth-round pick, you would still be one of the best players on your team.

The points were made by a 12-year veteran. He knows what he is talking about. It seems crazy that a head coach won't talk to his rookies. Jackson said that the coach loves his players so much that he would die for them.

Since he has had some rookies and developed them into Pro Bowlers, All- Pros, and all-time greats, we don't have to question his methods. Some of the rookies that have gone on to be great players are Jackson, McCoy, and others. The players have been to the Pro Bowl multiple times. In Philadelphia and Kansas City, whatever has been done has worked.

When a coach enters a new situation or becomes a first-time head coach, they earn players' respect. If Jackson and McCoy are reminiscing about it, then that's how it's been for years. The early years of their careers were with the Eagles.

Sometimes a coach who hasn't won a Super Bowl gets a bad wrap for being too hard on their players. He didn't win a Super Bowl until the year after. He wasn't able to get that franchise its first title.

You haven't heard anything bad about him besides Le'Veon Bell. He was able to build up equity with his players because he won early. Andy won 11 or more times in his first six years in Philadelphia.

During his coaching career, he has had two prominent first-round rookies, one of whom was a quarterback. In 1999, the eagles took second overall, while the Chiefs took 10th. I'm pretty sure that rule hadn't been established yet, since McNabb started six games in his first season, and also was the head coach for the rookies. It's not for quarterbacks.

By the time Mahomes came around, he was one of the best coaches in the league. I find it hard to believe that the two of them didn't interact much in the season that Mahomes played in. The Chiefs traded up to get the quarterback they wanted. You would have to think that the rule is different for quarterbacks because of the fact that they are coached by someone else.
