Philadelphia Eagles: Why Andy Reid Should Play The Back-Ups in Week 17

  Can Mike Kafka be the No. 2 QB in 2012? The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles season will come to a merciful end this Sunday against the Washington Redskins.  However, in reality their season ended on Christmas Eve once the Giants won the battle of New York. This is why Andy Reid should be playing the back-ups this week.  2011 is over, it’s time to think about 2012. If anyone can give...

Samuel Out, McCoy Playing vs. Washington

Don't tell Andy Reid that Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins doesn't matter.  Saying he will play the game like any other, Reid confirmed today that running back LeSean McCoy will play despite injuring his ankle last week.  Some thought that McCoy might sit out as a precaution with the game meaning nothing. With McCoy now in the lineup, it is a safe bet...

Spagnuolo still has some support in St. Louis

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo is one of the most likely coaches to get fired on Black Monday, but no one seems to know for sure what will happen in St. Louis. He’s 10-37 over the last three years, which is hard to overcome. But he hasn’t lost all support. Bryan Burwell of St. Louis Post-Dispatch…

Report: Spagnuolo could return to Eagles

St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo is strongly tipped to return to Philadelphia to become the Eagles' defensive coordinator if, as expected, he is fired at the end of the season.

Castillo’s future remains unclear

As the Dream Team disintegrated to 4-8, the options facing coach Andy Reid became clear — he’d have to relieve first-year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo of his duties, or Reid would be fired.

Eagles trying to finish at .500

A meaningless regular-season game for the Philadelphia Eagles usually means resting their starters for the playoffs. Not this year. The Eagles (7-8) are going home after their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins (5-10). It's the first time since 2007 they didn't make the playoffs and just the fourth time it's happened in coach Andy Reid's 13 seasons. That...

Steelers Shutdown Rams 27-0
