The longest tenured NFL head coach reportedly wants a new contract but his team seems reluctant to enter into talks at this time. According to thePhiladelphia Inquirer, Andy Reid‘s agent Bob LaMonte is looking to land the veteran head coach a contract extension. Reid has two seasons remaining on his current contract. The Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie made it perfectly clear after the disappointment of the 2011 season that a repeat would not be tolerated. Lurie called last season, “unacceptable”. It was possible that Reid could have been released after last year, but he remains the team’s current head coach and has to be considered to be on one of the hottest coaching seats in the NFL. Reid is the longest tenured head coach in the NFL, coaching the Philadelphia Eagles since 1999. He has amassed a .609 winning percentage. However, Reid has not won a playoff gamesince the 2008 season.

Despite preseason win, Eagles have ways to improve

While compassionate fans showed their support for Andy Reid, most of the Philadelphia Eagles gave a boo-worthy performance in their preseason opener. The first-team offense went three-and-out twice and Michael Vick barely escaped serious injury when he hurt his thumb on his last play. The starting defense allowed an opening drive that lasted 9:48 and gave up 10 points on two possessions...

The Eagles first unit has inspired DOOM and GLOOM predictions, calm down it’s EARLY!

The 2012-13 Eagles season has begun like nearly every other season, with an uninspiring pre-season game. The aftermath of Thursday’s game I am finding to be quite amusing. (That would be the callers to talk radio already predicting DOOM). Not that the Eagles first-string performance was amusing offensively or defensively but what were you expecting? Offensively, the 6 plays...

Michael Vick and Mike Kafka were dreadful as the first and second team offenses failed to score...
