You know the old saw, “If it weren’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all.” Well, the Philadelphia Eagles have put their own spin on it: If it weren’t for winning The Dumbest Team in Football Award, they wouldn’t win anything at all.
Kerry J. Byrne, posting on Sports Illustrated’s “Inside the Numbers”, felt as though he needed to break out some next level stats just in case us Philly phans needed “a statistical reason to fire Andy Reid.” We appreciate it, but all we’ve had to do is watch Reid mismanage critical game situations since February 6th, 2005.
Here’s a highlight of some of Byrne’s very telling stats:

• No. 8 in total offense but No. 29 in scoring offense
The inefficiency problem is especially acute on offense: The Eagles need 21.54 yards of offense just to score a single point, according to the Scoreability Index.
Put in football terms: The Eagles must march 150.8 yards to scor

There are seven more weeks in the Andy Reid Era of Eagles Footballery (why seven more? Because firing him one minute earlier than the end of the year might actually give Eagle Fan a moment of joy in this season, and we can't have that), and it's high time to really start savoring the moments. Only seven more times will we be able to play Wasted Timeout...
Well, this is certainly one way to get yourself noticed. Before today, nobody knew who Erik Frampton was – today they all know him personally. I have to say, the Lingerie Football league pantsings are much better.
For the record, the Cowboys smoked the Eagles with a flurry of special team/defensive touchdowns. Adios Andy Reid.
It's not easy being an NFL head coach, especially when anyone and everyone can create not-so-glowing tribute Web sites demanding your job. Andy Reid, Norv Turner, Rex Ryan and Ron Rivera are just four of the coaches suffering this fate.
