Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 12 in the National Football League! Robert Griffin III put on a Thanksgiving show that I’m sure we will be talking about for sometime.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
In a year that began with the team owner saying that another 8-8 season wouldn’t be enough for Andy Reid to keep his job and the starting quarterback claiming that the Eagles were about to be a dynasty, a 3-8 start with seven consecutive losses surely wasn’t the way the long-time Philly head coach drew things up.
So if team owner Jeffrey Lurie is true to his word and lets Andy...
A seven-game losing streak won't get Andy Reid to change his ways.
As usual, Reid accepted blame and pointed the finger directly at himself following the Philadelphia Eagles' latest loss, 30-22 to the Carolina Panthers on Monday night.
''I take full responsibility. There's a way to get through and I'm not doing it right now,'' Reid said Tuesday....
Now that the Eagles have lost that ever so important 8th game, it’s time to really break down the head coaching candidates. Eagles Team Owner Jeffrey Lurie stated in the offseason that 8-8 would not be good enough for Andy Reid to keep his job. At 3-8, it’s safe to say Andy Reid will get the axe sometime before the new year.
There are a handful of candidates that really jump...
The Giants defensive lineman says that until he retires, the Redskins quarterback "is going to be a fixture in my dreams and nightmares."
Robert Griffin III has become a force of nature at quarterback that not many people are ready or interested in dealing with. Last Thursday night, after his performance in Dallas, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was tired of dealing with RGIII already.
You can add another NFC East opponent to that group. After barely escaping the Washington Redskins a few weeks ago, New York Giants...
Not that the woes of Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles have been flying under the radar, but now things could turn uglier as they come under the national spotlight.
Tonight the Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) will be hosting a Carolina Panthers (2-8) team who is, per their 2012 record, a smidge worse than the Birds of Philly. And while a lot of Philly fans see this season of high expectations a bust and are looking towards the offseason, nobody inside the NovaCare Complex is ready to give in.
Now, with the hope for a playoff appearance all but out...
One year removed from an 18-sack season, Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin was abruptly released yesterday. I don’t mean to pile-on here, but I can’t say I’m sad to see him go.
In fact, I was very surprised they signed him (again) in 2011.
I normally do not play the “I told you so” game, but…I told you so. Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article saying why I didn’t...
Another week gone by and the Phillies have still won a game more recently than the Eagles have. The best would be if the Flyers won a game before the next time the Eagles did. And that’s with the NHL losing a full season to the lockout.
Not that Andy Reid had any chance of salvaging his job with a good performance in a prime time game against another team, but he couldn’t even...
Washington Redskins star rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has taken the NFL by a storm in this his rookie season. RGIII is being considered for NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year and even MVP, but if you ask Griffin his opinion, he thinks his rookie running back Alfred Morris is the Rookie of the Year.
“My vote would go to Alfred Morris, because I wouldn’t vote for...
Monday Night Football will feature a game that few outside of Carolina and Philadelphia will care about tonight. The 2-8 Panthers head to Philly to take on the 3-7 Eagles. Both teams have clearly struggled all season, so it will be interesting to see which team steps up in this game.
The Eagles aren’t looking too good, as Andy Reid is on the verge of getting fired and Michael Vick...
Eagles head coach Andy Reid mentioned that QB Michael Vick still hasn’t been cleared from a concussion that he suffered a few weeks ago.
“If the young guys are available to play, we’re going to put them in and play them,” Reid said. “If that’s the situation, I’m not going to hesitate to do that. But we’ll see how things go here as we continue to roll on.”
Up until this past Monday night, the only real hatred towards Andy Reid was coming from Philadelphia Eagles fans. But after Bryce Brown racked up 178 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers, Reid can add fantasy owners to the list.
The Eagles are notorious for wanting to throw the ball. So much so, that LeSean McCoy could be arguably be perceived as a better wide receiver...
