Image via USA Today Andy Reid’s job as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is safe at least through Monday night, per a report in the Daily News. And if you’re hoping that Reid will show mercy and throw himself on the sword of unemployment, you’re out of luck. It ain’t happening. Reid was asked whether his own leadership has been rendered ineffective in trying to motivate his men. As we know with our Andy, he likes to evaluate everything.

Marcus Vick seemingly takes a shot at Andy Reid on Twitter

Marcus Vick may be criticizing the Philadelphia Eagles again on Twitter, only this time he made more of an effort to mask his insult.

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles was very unimpressive during today’s loss to the Redskins.  The good news is that Michael Vick might be back next week.

That Taylor Swift/Andy Reid Parody Song Is Pretty Good

I can’t explain it but when this Taylor Swift parody song about Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid called – We Are Never Ever Gonna Win With Andy – I didn’t think I would like it.  In fact, I waited a couple of days before I even watched the video.  Maybe because it was using a Swift song, I thought it would be cheesy or another YouTubers failed attempt at humor.
