PLAYERS: Andy Reid
TEAMS: Philadelphia Eagles
Unfortunately, the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season has reached the point of a real dilemma: Do we root for a win every week because that’s what we should do, as fans — or — is a better position in the 2013 NFL draft more important (which means they need to lose)? I guess the better question is what you would prefer: Getting a few more wins or just continue watching this team go down in flames because it should be against our nature to “root” for the Eagles to lose? I’m sure there are those out there who just want to experience the joy of victory at least one more time this season, but to me, that would last all of five minutes before a different kind of frustration sunk in. That would be the frustration of the Eagles getting a meaningless win that only served to worsen their draft position.  Therefore, I’d be pissed that the Eagles can’t even lose correctly! In my way of viewing things, if the Eagles don’t make the playoffs in a given year, I’d rather see them finish with as worse o...

Philadelphia Eagles: Where Will Andy Reid be Coaching Next Year?

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...

Next Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach: Offensive or Defensive?

If, in fact, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is fired at season’s end, we’ll be in the market for a new leader on the grid iron.  Besides the aspects of personality characteristics, track record and reputation, one big question is whether or not we should bring in an offensive or defensive-minded head coach. And furthermore, does that matter? Well, since winning the...

The Eagles are terrible and Andy Reid should be let go out of respect. Week 13 preview.

The Eagles have checked out and they are playing terrible.  Andy Reid should be spared the embarrassment the rest of the way. After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63.  I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason. Jacksonville at Buffalo - Chad Henne is proving that he can play QB in the NFL.  I liked him in Miami and thought...

Jason Babin Just Another Example of How Andy Reid Changed

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...

Will Mike Vick’s health change the quarterback situation in Philadelphia?

Image via Business Insider Poor performance breeds drama. In addition to being disappointing, this has been an incredibly dramatic season for the Philadelphia Eagles. The multitude of storylines show no sign of slowing down, particularly not as they relate to the quarterback position. Friday saw a report from ESPN’s Ed Werder stating that Mike Vick felt that the Birds were “playing...

NFL Week 13: Five More Weeks To Make Money On Andy Reid

Cash Me Out, Big Man Here's something that you won't read in a picks column: I'm really ready for this NFL season to be over. It's already cold and miserable here in Central Jersey, we've already had several snow scares, the local township is irritating me with leaf collection, and I'd rather be watching basketball. In another five weeks, we'll be able...

Michael Vick fails ImPACT test

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick did not pass the ImPACT test and is unlikely to play against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday for the third consecutive game.

In order for the player to pass...

NFL Rumors: Casey Matthews Hoping Philadelphia Eagles Replace Andy Reid With Chip Kelly?

Casey Matthews is suffering through a miserable season under head coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles. After a 3-1 start, the Eagles have dropped seven straight and Reid has lost control of this team. It is all but inevitable that 2012 will be Reid’s final season coaching the eagles, and if that is indeed the case, Matthews has a suggestion for who the next head coach...

Locker Room Talk: Glimpse Inside a Team Who’s Missed the Playoffs

The NFL’s week 13 MNF matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles put the spotlight on a pair of 3-8 teams who are headed towards empty postseasons.  For the Carolina Panthers, they appear to be an organization that will look to shuffle the deck once more this offseason.  They pulled the plug on longtime General Manager Marty Hurney several weeks ago and...

Eagles-Cowboys Preview

As bad as things are going for the Dallas Cowboys, it's that much worse for the Philadelphia Eagles. These injury-plagued NFC East rivals meet Sunday night at Cowboys Stadium, with the Eagles out to avoid their longest losing streak in 44 years.
