Faulty Friday Photoshop: Big Red

Andy Reid came back to Philadelphia last night as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and emerged victorious. Reid is often called Big Red.

Jamaal’s the Eggman, Reid Is the Walrus, Goo-Goo-G’Joob!

It was a nice return to Philly for the Walrus, Andy Reid, as his Chiefs took down his former team.  The team that has been a talk of the NFL despite starting 1-1 with a defense made of wet paper with holes big enough to make Jenna Jamison blush has overshadowed Reid’s new team.  You know, the one that has flown under the radar to a 2-0, now 3-0 start.  This isn’t fantasy relevant...

Donovan McNabb Says The Eagles Offense “Just A Fad”

Donovan McNabb sounds like the old guy in your neighborhood who hates on everything the young people are doing now a days.
