2011 East-West Shrine Game Coaches: Former Falcons Coaches Dan Reeves And Wade Phillips

Dan Reeves and Wade Phillips worked together in 2002 and 2003, when Reeves was the Atlanta Falcons head coach and Phillips his defensive coordinator.

The Nation Game, but it's still one of the last chances many players will have to impress NFL scouts in a live game.
