Found November 13, 2012 on Philly Sports Muse:
You going in to take a hit or is it my turn? Andy Reid said on Monday that Mike Vick suffered a “pretty significant” concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. This fact sets the stage for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starter against the Redskins in Week 11, which is reportedly set to occur. Said Reid, “I’m just telling you Michael is hurting right now. Nick is going to step in and be the quarterback until that point comes, and we’ll take it all from there. Listen, I can’t project the future. I’m just telling you what I’m telling you. Mike is the quarterback. Nick comes in, and he is a relief pitcher and does his thing.” Yesterday I asked the question if Vick’s early exit from Sunday’s game is how things will end for the quarterback in Philadelphia.  Will that be his last time appearance on the field as a starter?

Andy Reid’s ending becoming a sad affair

5 NFC Championship games. 1 Super Bowl appearance. 6 NFC East titles and 1 NFC Championship. 129 wins, 86 losses and 1 dreadful tie. The greatest era of Eagles football ever. It’s a record that most NFL coaches would kill for. In Philadelphia, it’s about to cost a man his job. This is a bitter end. Not the one that Andy Reid deserved. You can say what you want about the man,...

The Worst Thing That Could Possibly Happen for the Redskins in the Eagles Vs. Cowboys Happened

When Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went down with a concussion this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys I’m sure there was a grouping of Redskins fans who let out a cheer. After all, in spite of his dismal play this season (serves him right for declaring the Eagles a dynasty before they had won anything) Vick is still one of those players who can take over a game...

More Talk Of Andy Reid Coaching The Chargers

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Andy Reid would be interested in coaching the Chargers should he and Norv Turner get fired at some point in the coming months.

NFL Week 11 Picks: Countdown To Fatdown

Drink, Andy, Drink There are seven more weeks in the Andy Reid Era of Eagles Footballery (why seven more? Because firing him one minute earlier than the end of the year might actually give Eagle Fan a moment of joy in this season, and we can't have that), and it's high time to really start savoring the moments. Only seven more times will we be able to play Wasted Timeout...

Cowboys Special Teams Player Gets Pants’d on Kick Off

Well, this is certainly one way to get yourself noticed. Before today, nobody knew who Erik Frampton was – today they all know him personally. I have to say, the Lingerie Football league pantsings are much better. For the record, the Cowboys smoked the Eagles with a flurry of special team/defensive touchdowns. Adios Andy Reid.
