"[The playoffs] are never out of reach when you have your queen on the board and that's Andy Reid." -- Michael Vick on the Philadelphia Eagles chances of making the playoffs. Queen on the board, or ace in the hole, or whatever it was that Michael Vick meant, the Philadelphia Eagles are done.

And this is totally unlike a few weeks ago when the Eagles were 1-4 going into their bye and were really, really finished. Nope, losing to the Chicago Bears to go to 3-5 on the season is it. Put a stake in the Eagles; they're done. At least that'll be the popular theme this week.

Chaz Henry, You Play Ball Like a Girl (Video)

The Eagles lost to the Bears last night by a score of 30-24.  As many of us know Andy Reid likes to take risks and sometimes those risks don't work out for him.  The play call of a fake punt seems like the correct play call in this situation, but little did Andy know, his punter throws like a girl.
