12th Man Rising:
Each week, I interview a blogger that covers the the team that the Seahawks are covering. This week, I was lucky enough to get Mark from Birdsfan.com.1) It appears Reid picked the right QB out of the McNabb, Kolb, Vick trio, but with Vick comes injuries because of his style of play. How are the Eagles fans handling the situation at QB?Eagles fans know that Vick is a high risk, high reward type player. If you look at his career, it’s very unusual for him to play in every game. He’s taken a lot of hits and kept going, but he’s also taken hits to the point where it keeps him out of the game.You can’t deny how exciting of a player he is to watch though. Every time he pulls the ball down to run you hold your breath. Unfortunately, it’s both because you think he may score and you think he may take a hit he can’t get up from.His style of play is no secret, so I don’t think it bothers fans that much.2) How hot is the seat under head coach Andy Reid right now? … [visit site to read more]
BEST OF MAXIM
Stop the hype time to admit Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles are an over hyped dysfunctional organization. I'm not basing my comments on just the 2011 season either, they have been dysfunctional for years.
Winning seasons have masked many failures for coach Andy Reid and the Eagles. I read and listen to comments about how great an organization Philadelphia has been, how...
Maybe Andy Reid thinks it is in his best interest to defend his players while he is coaching for his job, but who is he trying to fool? Earlier today we told you about DeSean Jackson’s antics after Thursday night’s game against the Seahawks. Anyone who was watching the game knows Jackson gave up and [...]
After last night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, its looks like Reid has lost control of the Eagles. He's had his fair share of chances and it tenure has run its course. He has to do a better job yet never does. He hired former Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo to run his defense. What is he doing?
But who will replace the most successful coach in the history of the franchise...
Audio of the always entertaining Andy Reid press conference after the jump.
If the Eagles go to Seattle and are beaten by a bad Seahawks team it will increase the chances that Andy Reid will be fired. The embarrassing loss to the Patriots surely gave Jeffrey Lurie and Joe Banner more reasons to consider firing Reid. Lurie is from the Boston area. He considered purchasing the Patriots.
The Philadelphia Eagles have often performed their best in December under Andy Reid. The expected Super Bowl contenders will be hoping that trend continues, as they enter the month with their playoff hopes hanging by a thread heading into a critical Thursday night tussle with the Seattle Seahawks from CenturyLink Field.
After the NFL lockout ended, the Philadelphia Eagles went to town and signed several free agents, which made them the talk of the NFL.
Among the signings was coveted cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha.
You see, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie made available some cash for the free agents.
But after it was over (or before), the Eagles ran out of money and gave Head coach Andy Reid a sure...
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that the injured QB will not practice Tuesday, making it highly unlikely he will play Thursday night against the Seahawks.
Amidst the multitude of struggles that have defined the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles, the ineptitude at the safety position has emerged as a serious challenger to the linebacker corps for the honor of the biggest weakness on this team.
During the Andy Reid tenure, the linebacker corps has been an annual revolving door of incompetent player after incompetent player. After 13 years...
In case you have been under a rock, a growing issue in the city has been Andy Reid's play calling, especially when it comes to giving carries to LeSean McCoy. People have called radio stations about it. They have written about it. And yes, they have even made t-shirts about it.
While their is no question that McCoy needs to see the ball more, an issue that no one has been talking...
On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars fired longtime coach Jack Del Rio, which really wasn’t a surprise around league circles. It will also not be surprising, when the Eagles (with or without Andy Reid) let go the project that was Juan Castillo as Defensive Coordinator. Castillo just has looked bewildered and confused most of the time, [...]
