Originally written November 05, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
Just like the story of Rocky Balboa that was based in Philadelphia, go for it. Go ahead, rid yourself of Andy Reid. He’s a bum anyways right? Let me ask you this Philadelphia Eagles fans, who are you going to replace him with? Is there someone out there in the NFL ranks that has accomplished what Reid has? Because if there is please, go ahead. For the Eagles fans to turn on Andy Reid is absurd. Reid has held the Philadelphia Eagles head coach position since 1999 and is the longest tenured coach currently in the NFL. He has led the Eagles to five NFC Championship Games, including four consecutive appearances from 2001-2004 and to Super Bowl XXXIV in 2004.… Read more
PLAYERS: Andy Reid
TEAMS: Philadelphia Eagles

  • No Super bowl Championship banners. They have been in a down hill spiral for half a decade. Its time for him to go. He doesnt adjust or change and he has lost this team. He needs a new opportunity and so do the eagles and their fans.
  • We'd like to rid ourselves of you too,Dumbazz. Tom Coughlin has done more than Reid. Won two Superbowls. All Andy's done lately is eat and deficate and grow a mustach.
  • Tom Coughlin has won two Super Bowls. Is that more than Reid? He works right up the road. His teams play better, draft better and hire coaches better. You're welcome to leave town with Andy. Is there a penalty for talking like a fool? Throw that flag at you.
    I'd rather be the worst drug addict than a fool. They have clinics for drug addicts.
  • All I want for Christmas is for

    Laurie ride out of town with "Andy the red nose cow!
    "And don't forget to take VICK ZEN with you!

    Please also get rid of the "BOWLES of Holly!

    Do not forget to hang the stockings at least a "Wide 9 across!

    Do not forget to clean up your MUD also!

    We also need some April showlers to go away also!

    Oh what the heck! Clean house it needs it!

    Merry Christmas EAGLES FANS!
  • Apparently Lurie is a rare CEO who is willing to accept his coaches' weekly admissions of doing a poor job in preparing his team to play. As a now retired manager who worked in corporate America, if I told my boss that I didn't complete a required task because I didn't do a good enough job instructing or preparing my staff. I might get away with it once, but definitely not twice. At this point, I think Lurie has definitely seen the need for a complete house cleaning of the entire coaching staff. Chances are good that if the Eagles play like this against Dallas and/or the Giants, it could be sooner rather than later. He did not look very happy in N.O.
  • Arthur Spooner, of course. His impeccable record will allow him to move into Reid's position to instill a professional look both figuretively and literally. It's fairly simple. He will most certainly provide a superbowl birth for the birds. He is everything Reid is not..articulate, immaculate, well read and able to carry on a meaningful post game show interview complete w/ aplomb and majesty, not the inane and unappealing rhetoric Reid aspires to. Mr Lurie appears to be content w/ his financial situation w/ little disregard for anything else. Wake up, hire Spooner. Allow him to assess and move on w/ a positive action plan.
  • How often do you have to hear that the team sucks because the head coach isn't doing his job before you finally "get it"! If the present is any indicater of the future, the Eagles need a new coaching staff and a better idea of who to draft.
  • The Eagles are ALWAYS over rated. Last year they were suppose to be team great and this year they were loaded!!! They couldn't beat their m--t!!! Low class along with the coach. Have some class like the great Steelers and you might start winning!! But I doubt it. All these so called "GREAT" players who turn out to suck!!!
  • PA State Police Found A Man Dead .....


    ... Along the bank of the Schuylkill River near Philadelphia. The dead man's name will not be released until his family had been notified. The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption while attending an Eagles game. He was wearing a Philadelphia Eagles T-Shirt, black fishnet stockings, 4 inch spiked heels, red garter belt, pink G-string, purple lipstick, dazzle dust on his eyelids, 1/2 inch false eyelashes, The coroners office was called and and the body was taken to the morgue where the Eagles T-shirt was removed to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment
  • I would imagine you eagle fans are also fed up with not being able to get a full box of Dunkin Donuts anywhere around the stadium because of Reid. That's gotta wear on a fan base after awhile.
  • Looks like Mike Holmgren is house shopping in Philly.
  • You have no clue try another sport!
