You’re Fired! Even though I unclear as to the reason why…
A strange story out of the Novacare seems to point to a Philadelphia Eagles organization that, both on and off the field, simply doesn’t have a clue.
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 has unfolded on the field in the 2012 season. Or anyone you’ve even heard of. The team fired VP of Communications Rob Zeiger.
So….yeah. Zeiger’s responsibilities included heading up the Birds’ public affairs department, as well as serving as a liaison between owner Jeffrey Lurie, other members of the Eagles’ front office and the media.
More meaningful to many of us, Zeiger is the poor soul trotted out to confront fan outrage on WIP following the loss to the Cowboys over attempts to raise the volume of the music at the Linc to drown out the boos of Eagles fans to a primetime audience.

Andy Reid will not be coaching the Philadelphia Eagles past the 2012 NFL season. I know it, you know it, Reid knows it. Everybody knows it, and it is the right decision, regardless of how supportive of Reid Eagles’ owner Jeffrey Lurie has been through the years. It is time for a change.
But for anyone in Philadelphia who expects Reid to quit during this season, well, that is just...
NewsTags: Andy ReidPhiladelphia EaglesI have to compliment Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie for his discipline and consistency in staying out of his coach’s way. He doesn’t meddle and that’s what you want out of an owner, but he should fire Andy Reid now and not wait for another six weeks.
Firing Reid now would put an end to...
According to Les Bowen of Philly.com, even though the Eagles lost their sixth straight game yesterday, head coach Andy Reid’s job is safe for at least this week.
Now that the Eagles are 3-7 and clearly out of the NFC playoff race, Reid is all but done in Philly. I can’t imagine him sticking around after this season. It’s time for the Eagles front office to bring in a new...
NewsTags: Andy ReidJeffrey LuriePhiladelphia EaglesIf you were hoping that Eagles head coach Andy Reid was going to step down before the season ends, it’s not going to happen. Today the head coach was very consistent in communicating his mindset at the time.
“I’m standing in front of the team and telling them, ‘These...
I admire Andy Reid for hanging in with his assignment until the very end... And let's face it, until the Eagles are mathematically eliminated from the 2012 divisional race in the NFC East, there is a case to be made for Reid's stubborn clinging to his mission's objective...
But barring a modern-day Miracle of Lourdes, Reid's tenure is over in Philadelphia.
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...
At 3-7, the Philadelphia Eagles’ owner Jeffrey Lurie and the Philly fan base are afraid and disgusted with the result of the 2012 season. Afraid because of the constant possibility of making the wrong decision in firing longtime head coach Andy Reid and disgusted with how often Reid has let everyone down season after season. Whenever you make a change at Head Coach, it’s a lot...

Andy Reid’s job as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is safe at least through Monday night, per a report in the Daily News. And if you’re hoping that Reid will show mercy and throw himself on the sword of unemployment, you’re out of luck. It ain’t happening.
Reid was asked whether his own leadership has been rendered ineffective in trying to motivate...
Not that the woes of Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles have been flying under the radar, but now things could turn uglier as they come under the national spotlight.
A potentially hostile home crowd awaits them Monday night with the Eagles mired in the longest losing streak of Reid's tenure - which appears to be nearing an end - as they face the Carolina Panthers in a matchup...
Eagles second-round rookie DE Vinny Curry has been a healthy scratch in all 10 games this season. Curry must be truly awful at practice. Starting defensive ends Jason Babin and Trent Cole have combined for just six sacks and the Eagles’ season is in the toilet. Now that they’re 3-7, perhaps they actually try to get the No. 59 overall pick some in-game experience.
Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" has become the go to song to parody. The latest? Casey Conklin: We Are Never Ever Gonna Win With Andy.

For all you Philadelphia Eagles fans who aren't exactly pleased with head coach Andy Reid, this song parody might be the best thing you see all week.
It uses Taylor Swift's hit song, "We are never ever getting back together" as the inspiration and it might be the best parody song we've seen in awhile:
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...
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said quarterback Michael Vick‘s concussion is “improving” during Monday’s press conference, per Geoff Mosher.
