When the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, there will be a lot at stake for both teams. At a disappointing 3-5 record, both teams trail the New York Giants in the NFC East by 2.5 games at the midway point in the 2012 NFL season. With both teams having Super Bowl aspirations entering this year, things have not gone at all according to plan. With that being said, could the losing head coach be fired shortly after the game? Andy Reid and Jason Garrett may not want to hear it, but they may be coaching for their jobs on Sunday against one another. Truth be told, neither coach is likely to remain with their respective teams past this season as things currently stand. Unless the Eagles and/or Cowboys can drastically turn things around on the field and in the locker room, their fate appears to be sealed. In all likelihood, both men will coach out the remainder of the 2012 regular season, fail to qualify for the playoffs, and fail to hold onto their jobs. But could it...

Andy Reid Used To Be a Man With a Plan

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid used to be the man with a plan.  That was his reputation from the day he interviewed with Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner about the Eagles’ vacant head coaching position in 1999. Reid was a relative unknown at the time because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay.  However, Lurie and Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview...

The 2012 Philadelphia Eagles Would Be 0-8 If Not For 3 Lucky Breaks

Just how bad are the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles?  If not for a key lucky break in each of their three wins, Andy Reid’s team would be 0-8 right now. Just a mere two weeks ago, I posted an article titled 10 Reasons to Remain Optimistic About the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 Season.  The Eagles were 3-3 at the time and my thought pattern was that you could see the Eagles’ record...

19 Best NSFW ‘Fire Andy Reid’s Fat Ass’ F-Bomb Tweets

Andy Reid is fat and his son was a junkie. That’s pretty much the gist of these tweets from angry Eagles bros after last night’s 28-13 loss to the Saints. It was a pretty ugly game from the start so you know frustrations were running high from Philly fans. After Vick’s fifth or sixth sack it got really bad. @jojobasedraichu dropped this gem: “If I catch that f*ck ***** Andy...

Garrett appears almost out of ideas

Whenever you study something long enough, you begin to see the trends and patterns and normal fluctuations that make them normal. They have happened before, they will happen again, and we should not all lose our minds when we see it because it is not that abnormal. However, there are other times, when sample sizes are big enough to really be a cause for concern. Every Tuesday,...

Stephen Jones says it’s “ridiculous” to ask about Jason Garrett’s future

Dallas Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones was asked if Jason Garrett is coaching for his future. “I won’t even comment on that. Period. That’s ridiculous,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. I think it’s ridiculous to think that Garrett’s job isn’t in jeopardy.  Jones answered the question exactly the way he was supposed to.   var _CI = _CI || {}; ...

Eagles in four-game skid, as season slips away

Coach Andy Reid says he still believes the Philadelphia Eagles can turn their season around. The Eagles (3-5) have given him little reason to truly think that, though. They were sloppy and battered in a 28-13 loss to New Orleans on Monday night. They failed to score a touchdown in five trips inside the red zone and Michael Vick was sacked seven times. Reid says the Eagles are only...

Eagles Head Coach Reid Used to Have a Plan

From Day 1, Andy Reid's reputation has been as a man with a plan.  He was the guy in control and knew what to do for any situation that arose. Reid was a relative unknown at the time he was hired in 1999 because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay.  However, Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview process because of how organized...

Eagles taking big hits from national and local media...

"Hit 'em when they're up, hit 'em when they're down..." That old song "Dirty Laundry" could easily apply to the media blast the Eagles organization is currently getting. Suddenly every radio show host and female sideline reporter is a football expert. They know what's wrong with the Eagles...and they know how to fix it---"fire the Reid...

So Phialdelphia Eagles fans, Who replaces Andy Reid?

Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles

With both teams  3-5 the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday afternoon has taken on added importance.
