I happened to be on air with former NFL players Jonathan Ogden and Stan White a few days ago on WBAL-AM, and they both told me it takes at least four days after a game for most players just to get their bodies back to equilibrium in time to prepare for the next game... And yet, the NFL continues to put teams through the Thursday-after-a-Sunday game gauntlet... What makes it even worse for the Eagles this Thursday night, they had to travel 3,000 miles in a cramped charter jet across three time zones to Pacific time... which means, not only are they dinged up, aching, emotionally drained from a losing season, and physically dehydrated and exhausted, but when Seattle runs out on the field at 8:20 P.M.EST, to the Eagles it will feel like it's 11:20 P.M. EST... A lot of this game's outcome will depend on how fast and steady Vince Young comes out of the box at QB for the Eagles. If he's missing in accuracy or pocket awareness, look out... this thing could get ugly in a hurry. ...

Maybe Andy Reid thinks it is in his best interest to defend his players while he is coaching for his job, but who is he trying to fool? Earlier today we told you about DeSean Jackson’s antics after Thursday night’s game against the Seahawks. Anyone who was watching the game knows Jackson gave up and [...]
10) It's not as if the owners care about the fans, since the stadium keeps filling9) The national media keeps fluffing him as a great coach, despite an ever-increasing amount of evidence to the contrary8) They, like Reid, hate linebackers, safetys, running plays, and unwasted timeouts7) Knows that the organization only really cares about being competitive in an overrated division6...
After last night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, its looks like Reid has lost control of the Eagles. He's had his fair share of chances and it tenure has run its course. He has to do a better job yet never does. He hired former Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo to run his defense. What is he doing?
But who will replace the most successful coach in the history of the franchise...
Audio of the always entertaining Andy Reid press conference after the jump.
Have you ever wanted to watch a Ravens game with a (future) Hall-of-Famer? Jonathan Ogden is auctioning off an opportunity for the highest bidder to host the towering offensive tackle on Sunday afternoon when the Ravens hit the road to take on the Cleveland Browns. That’s right; Ogden is coming over to watch the game.
After the NFL lockout ended, the Philadelphia Eagles went to town and signed several free agents, which made them the talk of the NFL.
Among the signings was coveted cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha.
You see, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie made available some cash for the free agents.
But after it was over (or before), the Eagles ran out of money and gave Head coach Andy Reid a sure...
The Philadelphia Eagles have often performed their best in December under Andy Reid. The expected Super Bowl contenders will be hoping that trend continues, as they enter the month with their playoff hopes hanging by a thread heading into a critical Thursday night tussle with the Seattle Seahawks from CenturyLink Field.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that the injured QB will not practice Tuesday, making it highly unlikely he will play Thursday night against the Seahawks.
Amidst the multitude of struggles that have defined the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles, the ineptitude at the safety position has emerged as a serious challenger to the linebacker corps for the honor of the biggest weakness on this team.
During the Andy Reid tenure, the linebacker corps has been an annual revolving door of incompetent player after incompetent player. After 13 years...
To hear Eagles coach Andy Reid tell it, when it comes to DeSean Jackson, the NFL Network is guilty of trick photography.
In case you have been under a rock, a growing issue in the city has been Andy Reid's play calling, especially when it comes to giving carries to LeSean McCoy. People have called radio stations about it. They have written about it. And yes, they have even made t-shirts about it.
While their is no question that McCoy needs to see the ball more, an issue that no one has been talking...
On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars fired longtime coach Jack Del Rio, which really wasn’t a surprise around league circles. It will also not be surprising, when the Eagles (with or without Andy Reid) let go the project that was Juan Castillo as Defensive Coordinator. Castillo just has looked bewildered and confused most of the time, [...]
