Philly Sports Nut:
If there is one thing that Philadelphia Eagles fan despise more than anything on this earth it is the Dallas Cowboys. The star that represents the team on their helmets and is center stage in what is now known as “Jerryland” is just as hated as the team it represents. And if there is one person who Eagles fans have birthed a hatred for in recent times, it’s head coach Andy Reid.
From making personal, verbal, attacks on Reid at games saying inexcusable things regarding the death of his son Garrett to holding up signs and even chanting “Fire Andy” in Big Red’s house, it’s more than one human would normally be able to handle. A normal reaction from anyone who has endured this amount of disrespect would be to apply vengeance on those who dished it out. But before I go on with Reid’s possible payback, let me note that the fans growing hatred for Andy Reid is not on a personal level, very few fans known Andy Reid on such a level…if any at all.
Rather, this growing hatred stems from a constant and utter failure by the team Eagles fans cheer for every Sunday. After countless trips to the playoffs including four NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, the Eagles have failed to bring home the hardware to the City of Brotherly Love — and fans have had enough of getting so close but failing so often.
If there is one way that Andy Reid could return a certain level of betrayal and disrespect to Philly faithful, it would be to become the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.
Most believe that if Reid is dismissed from his duties inside the Eagles organization that he would end up coaching the San Diego Chargers. Reid’s name has been mentioned as the Chargers new head coach, should Norv Turner be fired, almost as much as Jon Gruden’s name has been mentioned as the successor to Andy Reid in Philly over recent years.
However, Mark Eckel of the Time of Trenton cited what he is calling a “very reliable source” that Big Red might not wind up in San Diego, and that there is a very real possibility that he could be sporting the star of Dallas if Jeffrey Lurie decides to sever ties with him.
“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening,” the source said. “But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”
“I think Andy would be a good fit with the Cowboys,” added Eckel’s source. “I feel he would get along fine with (Cowboys owner) Jerry (Jones). It would be the two of them working together, no middle man to get in the way.”
An ultimate act of betrayal to those who have betrayed him countless times over the years.
Now, allow me to twist your brain for a second Eagles fans. Lets say Reid does travel to Big D to become the new head coach for the Cowboys. There is a growing sense that QB Tony Romo is on his last leg as the teams’ starting QB. Andy Reid hasn’t deemed Eagles starting QB healthy enough to start due to Vick failing to pass the impact test, part of a series of test mandated by the league for any player who suffers a concusstion. This has forced Vick to ride the bench for a third straight week — and Vick has accused the Eagles of playing politics per ESPN’s Ed Werder on Friday.
What if Eagles fans, what if Reid is merely saving Vick from playing behind an awful offensive line, saving him that he can take Vick along with him to Dallas?

AROUND THE WEB
Is Andy Reid making moves in order to remain head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013? I’m sure nobody really wants to hear this, or even think about it, but there is a scenario brewing that could ultimately keep Reid in Philly…
Let’s take into consideration the following things:
Reid’s son passes away during training camp
Injuries have decimated the offensive line...
If the Philadelphia Eagles fire head coach Andy Reid and the Cowboys decide to part ways with Jason Garrett, a Sunday report says Reid could be the next Cowboys coach.
According to Mark Eckel of the Times of Trenton, an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, says the current Eagles coach could be leading the Cowboys next season.
"I know a lot of people think Andy...
Pretty much everyone knows that Andy Reid will not be the head coach in Philadelphia after this season.
If the team’s owner demanding more than a .500 year before the season began wasn’t enough, the Eagles going 3-9 so far and showing new depths of futility on the fumble and injury fronts surely is. The question now is when Reid will be let go.
Or is it? As the Eagles prepared...
It’s almost a certainty to this point that Andy Reid will be fired as coach of the Eagles after the season. It’s only an almost certainty because owner Jeff Lurie said last year that average wasn’t good enough and Reid will not survive another average year. The best the Eagles could finish this season before...
It’s hard to imagine that it will have any impact at this stage, but the Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday morning that they have relieved defensive line coach Jim Washburn of his duties. It’s no secret that Washburn and the widely criticized Wide Nine scheme would be headed out the door with head coach Andy Reid at the end of the season. But Reid decided to hasten the...

It’s a pretty good chance that Eagles coach Andy Reid will be fired at season’s end. It’s also a pretty good chance that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will be fired at season’s end. And that’s where the similarities between the two end.
Reid will have multiple jobs to choose from and will probably be a head coach next season. As for Garrett, he’ll probably have to catch...
The game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys that is going down on Sunday night could decide the fates of both coaches on each team in Andy Reid and Jason Garrett.
Reid is most likely coaching his last couple of games with the Eagles while Garrett’s coaching career is also likely hanging in the balance of these next few games.
Reid can get a job almost anywhere...
Following another lost, the Eagles fired another member of the coaching staff. Nope, it's still not Andy Reid. Early Monday morning, the Eagles have announced that they have relieved defensive line coach Jim Washburn of his duties.
The team has announced the hiring of Tommy Basher. Basher was the defensive line coach in 1985, and 1999-2005.
Updates to come.
Former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles will be the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback for the remainder fo the season, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Andy Reid made the announcement today, and it is effective immediately.
The Eagles have fired Jim Washburn, the colorful defensive line coach who brought the wide-9 to Philadelphia. Washburn will be replaced by Tommy Brasher. Brasher coached the defensive line for the Eagles from 1999-2005. Brasher is likely just a stop gap until another coach comes in next year and hires his own defensive line coach.
Andy Reid, who brought both Washburn and...
Casey Matthews is suffering through a miserable season under head coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles. After a 3-1 start, the Eagles have dropped seven straight and Reid has lost control of this team. It is all but inevitable that 2012 will be Reid’s final season coaching the eagles, and if that is indeed the case, Matthews has a suggestion for who the next head coach...
Eagles fans needs answers
Philadelphia Eagles fans have been called a lot of things over the years and not in the most favorable light. From snowball assaulters on Santa Claus to mean, blood thirsty, raucous boo-birds. But one thing most of the national media doesn’t associate Eagles fans with, is being loyal.
The fans here have endured a lot of heartache over the years, and it...
When Sean Payton’s contract extension with the Saints was recently voided by the NFL, it was believed that the Cowboys and Eagles would spend the early part of the off-season wrangling to secure a coach to tell them to DO THEIR JOB. The talk of that has dissipated somewhat in the last few weeks, with other high-profile coaching candidates rumored to be considered for those jobs...
