Philadelphia Eagles fans seem to have reached their boiling point with their team, and in particular head coach Andy Reid. After a 3-1 start to a 2012 season that many expected to be a successful one, the Eagles have lost seven straight games. Michael Vick has been sidelined with a concussion, but he had played horribly before going down anyway. Sitting at 3-8 and poised to miss the playoffs once again, Eagles fans feel that now is as good a time as ever to break out the paper bags.
For the third straight week (at least) on Monday night, Eagles fans were wearing paper bags over their heads and holding up signs encouraging the team to fire Reid. One fan held up a particularly insulting shirt about Reid three weeks ago during the Eagles loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
During Monday night’s 33-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers, one group of fans took aim at Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie.
With two home games remaining on their schedule and a defense that looks worse than it did before Juan C...

In a year that began with the team owner saying that another 8-8 season wouldn’t be enough for Andy Reid to keep his job and the starting quarterback claiming that the Eagles were about to be a dynasty, a 3-8 start with seven consecutive losses surely wasn’t the way the long-time Philly head coach drew things up.
So if team owner Jeffrey Lurie is true to his word and lets Andy...
Another Eagles executive has gotten the boot, and it wasn’t Andy Reid. Tim McDermott, Philadelphia’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, was the one to be fired.
Via CSN Philly:
In a prepared statement released through the Eagles, McDermott said, “The Eagles and I have parted on amicable terms. I have nothing but good things to say about the Eagles and the...
A seven-game losing streak won't get Andy Reid to change his ways.
As usual, Reid accepted blame and pointed the finger directly at himself following the Philadelphia Eagles' latest loss, 30-22 to the Carolina Panthers on Monday night.
''I take full responsibility. There's a way to get through and I'm not doing it right now,'' Reid said Tuesday....
Vick got one more in him?
First of all my condolences to all the Eagle fans on their 2012-13 season, I really didn’t expect things to get this bad. As a matter of fact I actually picked the Eagles to win this division when I did the season previews for this site. Well after last nights loss to the Panthers in prime-time the Eagles fans are wondering what do we go from here...
Now that the Eagles have lost that ever so important 8th game, it’s time to really break down the head coaching candidates. Eagles Team Owner Jeffrey Lurie stated in the offseason that 8-8 would not be good enough for Andy Reid to keep his job. At 3-8, it’s safe to say Andy Reid will get the axe sometime before the new year.
There are a handful of candidates that really jump...
The Eagles drop their seventh-straight, this time to Carolina, as Andy Reid's hourglass sands drop non-stop. Justin Henry has all the details.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid mentioned that QB Michael Vick still hasn’t been cleared from a concussion that he suffered a few weeks ago.
“If the young guys are available to play, we’re going to put them in and play them,” Reid said. “If that’s the situation, I’m not going to hesitate to do that. But we’ll see how things go here as we continue to roll on.”
Not that the woes of Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles have been flying under the radar, but now things could turn uglier as they come under the national spotlight.
Tonight the Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) will be hosting a Carolina Panthers (2-8) team who is, per their 2012 record, a smidge worse than the Birds of Philly. And while a lot of Philly fans see this season of high expectations a bust and are looking towards the offseason, nobody inside the NovaCare Complex is ready to give in.
Now, with the hope for a playoff appearance all but out...
One year removed from an 18-sack season, Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin was abruptly released yesterday. I don’t mean to pile-on here, but I can’t say I’m sad to see him go.
In fact, I was very surprised they signed him (again) in 2011.
I normally do not play the “I told you so” game, but…I told you so. Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article saying why I didn’t...
Monday Night Football will feature a game that few outside of Carolina and Philadelphia will care about tonight. The 2-8 Panthers head to Philly to take on the 3-7 Eagles. Both teams have clearly struggled all season, so it will be interesting to see which team steps up in this game.
The Eagles aren’t looking too good, as Andy Reid is on the verge of getting fired and Michael Vick...
Another week gone by and the Phillies have still won a game more recently than the Eagles have. The best would be if the Flyers won a game before the next time the Eagles did. And that’s with the NHL losing a full season to the lockout.
Not that Andy Reid had any chance of salvaging his job with a good performance in a prime time game against another team, but he couldn’t even...
With a rookie quarterback and a running back making his first start since high school, the Philadelphia Eagles will try for their first win in two months.
No wonder even the Carolina Panthers (2-8) are favored on the road.
The struggling Eagles (3-7) have lost six straight games entering Monday night's matchup against Cam Newton and the Panthers. They won't have Michael...

Up until this past Monday night, the only real hatred towards Andy Reid was coming from Philadelphia Eagles fans. But after Bryce Brown racked up 178 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers, Reid can add fantasy owners to the list.
The Eagles are notorious for wanting to throw the ball. So much so, that LeSean McCoy could be arguably be perceived as a better wide receiver...
