The saying “the season is over” is a common one in football. It comes out when a key player goes down or when a team knows they have little to no playoff hopes. I think “the season is over” is a common mindset among Eagles fans right now. However, there are still six games remaining. So what can we learn during those six games? At this point, it seems that Andy Reid is going to finish the season. He isn’t going to step down and it looks like Jeffrey Lurie isn’t going to give him the axe until the regular season wraps up. I’ve grown tired of the debate and rumors about who will be the next Eagles coach so I’m not going to get into that. Honestly, I have no idea who it’s going to be. The only thing that I hope happens is that Reid is fired immediately after the season ends and the next coach is brought in as quickly as possible. This team is going to have a lot of decisions to make when the season ends. One of the biggest is going to be around the quarterback position in 2013...

NFL Rumors: Forget Cop-Out Excuse, Quitting Philadelphia Eagles Would Be Stupid For Andy Reid

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...

Categories: BREAKING NEWS Coaching Staff Eagles 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.

Injury SPIN: Reid Finds Another Way to Limit McCoy…Get Him Concussed

Andy Reid is awful. I will never understand the national perception that this guy is great. There was one point in the game on Sunday where the Eagles rookie QB had passed the ball 17 times and McCoy had rushed only 5 times.

Andy refuses to step down...

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. ...

Cal (Finally) Fires Jeff Tedford

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...

Jeff Lurie Should Fire Andy Reid Now if He Insists on Going Back to Vick

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I’ve been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles’ starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be selfish not do so. Before all the Vick lovers come crying, this is not about him.  My reasoning for starting Foles is...

Fear and Loathing on the Philadelphia Eagles

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.

Whenever you make a change at Head Coach, it’s a lot...

Andy Reid: I won't quit on my team

Philadelphia Eagles' coach Andy Reid said Monday that he won't resign because quitting on his team would be a "cop-out."

That's not how I see...

The Taylor Swift-themed Andy Reid parody song is amazing (Video)

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.

A Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving: What We Can Be Thankful For

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...
