Being told that you resemble Larry the Cable Guy is far from a compliment, but it seems that this legendary nickname is going to stick as this headline makes its rounds around the internet.
Here’s the full quote from Andy Reid from ProFootballTalk.com:
“He’s a tough kid, I’m not telling you it’s all pretty,” coach Andy Reid told reporters on Sunday. “He looks like Larry the Cable Guy and plays like Larry the Cable Guy. He’s kind of a dirtbag-type guy, he gets in there and he’s rough and tough and scrappy and all of that so that’s how he’s playing right now.”
“I don’t think he’s as funny,” Reid said of Henry. “I haven’t heard him say a word. He just does his job.“
