Andy Reid should be fired, he has scratched his second round draft pick every game this year

Eagles second-round rookie DE Vinny Curry has been a healthy scratch in all 10 games this season. Curry must be truly awful at practice. Starting defensive ends Jason Babin and Trent Cole have combined for just six sacks and the Eagles’ season is in the toilet.
