Let me first preface this by saying: Brandon, I understand. Former Michigan DE Brandon Graham has reportedly gained 20 pounds while rehabbing from his ACL injury thanks to all the delicious cheesesteaks he's been eating. After 4 years of enjoying Mr. Spots in Ann Arbor, I can't imagine how tempting it must be to have the real deal available at Pat's or Geno's any day of the week.
Of course, making Andy Reid's mid-morning snack runs probably doesn't help either.

BEST OF MAXIM
Whatever the Philadelphia Eagles do when coach Andy Reid gives them a week off works perfectly.
Under Reid, the Eagles are 12-0 following a bye. They're looking to extend that winning streak when they host the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) on Sunday night. It's another must-win for the Eagles (2-4), who can't afford to lose any more after a poor start.
Given Reid's success...
Asante Samuel sent a shot to the front office today after practice, suggesting that their may be a rift between Andy Reid and the front office.
Following a statement by Samuel that he is now "better understands how the business of the NFL works" after a talk with Reid, the head coach released this statement.
“I am aware of how Asante felt and we have since talked. We...
The Eagles are 12-0 coming off a bye under head coach Andy Reid. The Cowboys (3-3) will have to end that streak on the road to pull back above .500 in this gritty division clash.
PHILADELPHIA - Before the Eagles practiced Wednesday, Andy Reid said he wouldn't have anything to say about Asante...
WOW things are getting crazier in Philadelphia. This morning I talked about Asante Samuel and Andy Reid making ammends, where Reid said he the two of them talked and have nothing else to say. Well, Asante does but not about his coach. Comcast SportsNet Philly has a big article today with lots of quotes where Samuel sounds off on the organization as a whole.
Here’s a few...
This morning at his weekly news conference, Andy Reid said that the fans and media would not be hearing from Asante Samuel any more about trade rumors that have swirled around since Training Camp.
Boy was he wrong.
Addressing the fact that the Eagles tried to trade him once again at the trading deadline last week, Samuel did not hold back on what he thought was going on in the Eagles...
The Cowboys are coming to town!OK, I know - the rivalry is not what it once was. The Eagles have mostly owned the NFC East for the past 10+ years, and the Cowboys have one precisely one playoff game since 1996. Yes, that win knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs in the first round for the first time under Andy Reid in 2009 and thank you for bringing up such a painful memory.Anyway...
If the Eagles were half as interesting on the field as they are of of it, they might well be the best team in the NFL.
They are 2-4, though, and it is hard to feel like incidents like the one that went down on Wednesday aren't playing a role in their poor start. Cornerback Asante Samuel, upset about being shopped for a deal before the trade deadline, blew his stack during a...
