Personally, I'm giving Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb a sitting ovation from my armchair. To set up the game, I go back to an old crutch...the AccuScore.com feature on their betting site which simulates a game at least 1,000 times on a mainframe computer.

The Andy Reid that Eagles fans didn't get a chance to know is missed by those in Philly who knew him best

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The man Melissa Firman knew had a heart with its own zip code, a soul that danced on a sunbeam.

Reid downplays return to Philly

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.

McNabb who arrived here in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, was...

Michael Vick: Andy Reid’s One Of The Greatest Men I’ve Ever Met

Michael Vick owes Andy Reid his life.
