Found November 23, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:
 Let's face it. Not everyone has the extra cash to drop on a pair of Monday Night Football tickets. They just don't come cheap anymore. However, one Philadelphia Eagles fan is getting creative in how he plans to fund his trip to next week's Eagles game vs the Carolina Panthers on MNF.  From Craiglist: I’ll trade my leftover Halloween candy for tickets to the Eagles vs Pathers game this Monday night.I have 23 Snickers bars (fun size), 5 Snickers Almond bars (fun size), and an unopened bag of Charms Blow Pops (assorted flavors).The game is Monday night, it’s against the Panthers, and it’s going to be cold. If you’d rather not sit through another Eagles’ game, this is a great trade.Philly hasn't won a football game since the end of September. The Andy Reid coached team has lost six straight games during that span. So, maybe those tickets are only worth a bag of candy anyway. Via Off the Bench.

The Eagles are awesome at firing the wrong people

You’re Fired!

News of a firing by the Eagles broke overnight. If you’re wondering why there’s no hubbub over it, it’s because it was of someone who has nothing to do with the mess...

Cal (Finally) Fires Jeff Tedford

Two weeks ago I called Cal coach Jeff Tedford the "Andy Reid of college football" as both mens' coaching careers hung in the balance. While Reid still clings to life in Philadelphia, Cal has let Tedford go after nearly eleven seasons in Berkeley. Like Reid, Tedford brought his team to an unprecedented level of sustained success, but like Reid, it was time for him to...

Jeff Lurie Should Fire Andy Reid Now if He Insists on Going Back to Vick

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I’ve been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles’ starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be selfish not do so. Before all the Vick lovers come crying, this is not about him.  My reasoning for starting Foles is...

What’s Left For The Eagles In 2012?

The saying “the season is over” is a common one in football. It comes out when a key player goes down or when a team knows they have little to no playoff hopes. I think “the season is over” is a common mindset among Eagles fans right now. However, there are still six games remaining. So what can we learn during those six games? At this point, it seems that Andy Reid is...

A Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving: What We Can Be Thankful For

It’s true that this 2012 Philadelphia Eagles team has played more like the prey, rather than birds of prey, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought it would be better to take a look at the positive side of things. There hasn’t been much to cheer about this season, unfortunately.  And, we’re facing a future with the most uncertainty since after the 1998 season.  However...
