PLAYERS: Andy Reid
TEAMS: Philadelphia Eagles
Just how bad are the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles?  If not for a key lucky break in each of their three wins, Andy Reid’s team would be 0-8 right now. Just a mere two weeks ago, I posted an article titled 10 Reasons to Remain Optimistic About the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 Season.  The Eagles were 3-3 at the time and my thought pattern was that you could see the Eagles’ record in a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty kind of way.

After Vick’s fifth or sixth sack it got really bad. @jojobasedraichu dropped this gem: “If I catch that f*ck ***** Andy...

Andy Reid’s Days Are Numbered In Philly

A long time ago, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie should have parted ways with embattled coach Andy Reid.

Eagles in four-game skid, as season slips away

Coach Andy Reid says he still believes the Philadelphia Eagles can turn their season around. The Eagles (3-5) have given him little reason to truly think that, though.

Reid says the Eagles are only...
