It was reported yesterday that wide receiver Jason Avant called a players-only meeting yesterday after their beleaguered head coach left team facilities. The theme of the conversation centered upon the reality that it’s been the players who have created this mess, not Reid.Avant's message will ring hollow if the Eagles don't figure it out Sunday.That’s all fine and good. I’d rather hear a story about players rallying around their coach than one where they trash their coach.

They both [...]

PHILADELPHIA — The longer Michael Vick spoke Wednesday, the more it sounded like he was giving a preview of the eulogy for Andy Reid.

ANALYSIS/OPINION The word, in all its variations, has been uttered ad nauseum at Redskins Park this week. Embarrass. Embarrassing. Embarrassment. No need to tell you, I'm sure, what players and coaches are talking about, not with the Philadelphia Eagles coming to town this weekend. They're talking about the last time ...
