With wins on Sunday will Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers head coaches Andy Reid and Norv Turner save their jobs for the 2013 season? Both coaches have been on the hot seat for the last two seasons, but with a possibility of finishing out their respective seasons with multiple wins, will the veteran coaches be given another season in 2013? Andy Reid- The Eagles have ruled out Michael Vick for the remainder of the season as the team is going with rookie QB Nick Foles. Foles dismantled the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary on Sunday, throwing for 381 yards with an offensive lineup that is operating without LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. The Eagles recorded their fourth win of the season, albeit another less than 3-point victory. Last week, after a 38-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, several Philadelphia writers suggested that Reid was conducting himself as a coach who was confident about his job moving forward. The Eagles have made several coaching changes in the midst of this ...

Two Head Coaching Candidates For the Philadelphia Eagles to Consider

It’s almost a foregone conclusion that Andy Reid will not be returning as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.  Though I think there is a slight possibility that he does return, as outlined here, I still feel the odds largely favor a parting of ways. I’ve also done a little research recently to determine if there has been a noticeable difference between the success...

Chargers' win not expected to save Turner's job

Chargers President Dean Spanos presented Norv Turner with a game ball after San Diego stunned the Steelers, its first regular-season victory in Pittsburgh in 15 tries. That's the same Dean Spanos who is expected to fire Turner, most likely along with general manager A.J. Smith, shortly after this dismal season ends. The 34-24 victory Sunday isn't expected to change anything...

Candidates To Replace Andy Reid And Michael Vick

Even after the failed Dream Team experiment in 2011 there was still hope, but this season has been worse than any Eagles fan could ever imagine.  After winning our last four games last season, the Eagles look poised to make the playoffs again in 2012. However, after winning three of their first four games, each by a combined margin of five points, they haven’t won since.  Losing...

NFL Sports betting on San Diego Chargers

San Diego Chargers Upset Pittsburgh Steelers: Hero/Zero of the Game

It was a horrific display of first half football. The Pittsburgh Steelers were trailing the San Diego Chargers by a score of 13-3. The score itself tells a completely different story of what was happening on the field. It was a contest dominated by both teams defenses until the second half, and that's when San Diego took over. The Chargers scored 21 points in the second, 14 of...

Now The Steelers Have A Buttfumble

I’m probably not the best judge of this based on Pittsburgh homerism, but I’ll argue that this buttfumble isn’t quite as hilarious as the one that happened to the Jets, mostly because it doesn’t include someone going headfirst into someone’s backside. Nevertheless, it involves a butt causing a fumble. And it helped the Steelers lose a critical game to a team coached by...
