It was merely 20 days ago that the Philadelphia Eagles were on a long plane ride home from Seattle after suffering a demoralizing defeat at the hands of Tarvaris Jackson and the Seahawks.
It was their fourth such kind of loss out of their previous five games and the season was all but over. The pitchforks and torches were out in Philadelphia and everyone wanted the heads of Andy Reid and Juan Castillo on a platter.
At the very minimum, Juan Castillo had to go. Sure, everybody knew that ultimately Reid had put Castillo in that position, but it was more about Reid owning up to his mistake.

Just three days after missing the first game of his four-year career, left tackle Jake Long was back to work Tuesday as the Dolphins began preparations for Saturday’s game at New England. Long suffered a back injury that knocked him out of the Philadelphia game and kept him sidelined last Sunday at Buffalo, forcing guard [...]
Lleft tackle Jake Long returned to practice with the Dolphins on Tuesday, while the team place linebacker Koa Misi on injured reserve.

Andy Reid and his team could be smiling if four games fall their way in the next two weeks, putting them in the playoffs after being written off by many.
If you're looking for a Cowboys collapse at just the wrong time, the Philadelphia Eagles are the team to do it.
Nobody beats the Cowboys like the Eagles. Nobody.
That 34-7 loss to the Eagles back in October? That was the sixth time Eagles coach Andy Reid has beaten the Cowboys by at least 27 points.
No other coach has come close to humiliating the Cowboys that many times by...
