With Andy Reid Out, Another Look at Candidates to Replace Him

The long wait is over, Jeff Lurie and the Philadelphia Eagles have finally handed Andy Reid his walking papers.  Some folks think this should have happened years ago, but I guess it’s better late than never. You can count me among the homers that wanted to keep Reid around through this season.  I just kept finding reasons to keep him after every season prior to this one.  This...

Eagles May Have No Choice But to Stick With Nick Foles in 2013

With all the questions and wondering if Nick Foles will be starting for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, the answer may be that there will be nobody else available who is better. First, let me say that the following is not an indictment of Foles in any way, it’s simply a logical look at possible alternatives.  I’m not saying the Eagles need to find someone else nor am I saying...

Early Look at Potential Free Agent Targets for Eagles

Free agent talk in December?  Yes, that’s what the 2012 version of the Philadelphia Eagles has led us to.  Once the dust settles at the Nova Care Complex after this team gets blown up in January, it won’t be long until the annual free agent shopping extravaganza opens up in March. There’s a saying that most coaches like to be the ones to buy the groceries since they’re...

Final Home Game For Eagles’ Andy Reid Brings Back Memories of His First

Barring a severe case of dementia for Jeff Lurie, this should be the last time we see Andy Reid prowling the sidelines in Philadelphia as the Eagles’ head coach. In the coming days and weeks, you will likely see numerous articles around the web about Reid’s tenure in Philly.  The “best of”, “worst of”, Top 10 articles, career summaries, etc, will likely dominate headlines...

Eagles Look To Play Spoilers In Week 16

Eagles Look To Play Spoilers In Week 16 By SBRForum.com No one could have expected that the Philadelphia Eagles would have had such a terrible second half to the season.  After starting out with a 3-1 record, the team fell relatively quickly into obscurity, losing almost every game since then. They are currently at a 4-10 record with no chance of making the playoffs. They do have...

What is With the Howie Roseman Hate and Anger at Jeff Lurie?

For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Howie Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season’s end.  I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Jeff Lurie for not coming out and addressing the media about the state of the franchise (or firing Reid before the end of the year). Just this morning, these two subjects were...

Nick Foles is Impressing, But a Tough Test Looms Against the Bengals

Photo: David Maialetti Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is certainly impressing everyone from fans, to teammates, to coaches.  He looked like a poised veteran when he threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin as time expired. Wait, did I say “game-winning?”  As in, the Eagles won?  Wholly crap, that’s right, they did!  For the first time since September...

Two Head Coaching Candidates For the Philadelphia Eagles to Consider

It’s almost a foregone conclusion that Andy Reid will not be returning as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.  Though I think there is a slight possibility that he does return, as outlined here, I still feel the odds largely favor a parting of ways. I’ve also done a little research recently to determine if there has been a noticeable difference between the success...

Nick Foles Has a Chance to Thrive Against a Weak Tampa Bay Pass Defense

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will have every opportunity to climb another rung or two on the improvement ladder this week against Tampa Bay.  Though they’re ranked No.1 against the rush, the Bucs’ defense is ranked dead last against the pass. Wait, there is a worse pass defense than the Eagles’? Yes, how about that, huh?  The Eagles’ pass defense likely leads the league...

The Perfect Storm to Keep Andy Reid in Philadelphia?

Is Andy Reid making moves in order to remain head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013?  I’m sure nobody really wants to hear this, or even think about it, but there is a scenario brewing that could ultimately keep Reid in Philly… Let’s take into consideration the following things: Reid’s son passes away during training camp Injuries have decimated the offensive line...

Next Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach: Offensive or Defensive?

If, in fact, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is fired at season’s end, we’ll be in the market for a new leader on the grid iron.  Besides the aspects of personality characteristics, track record and reputation, one big question is whether or not we should bring in an offensive or defensive-minded head coach. And furthermore, does that matter? Well, since winning the...

Philadelphia Eagles Fans’ Dilemma: Root For Wins or Better Draft Position

Unfortunately, the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season has reached the point of a real dilemma: Do we root for a win every week because that’s what we should do, as fans — or — is a better position in the 2013 NFL draft more important (which means they need to lose)? I guess the better question is what you would prefer: Getting a few more wins or just continue watching this team...

Jason Babin Just Another Example of How Andy Reid Changed

One year removed from an 18-sack season, Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin was abruptly released yesterday.  I don’t mean to pile-on here, but I can’t say I’m sad to see him go. In fact, I was very surprised they signed him (again) in 2011. I normally do not play the “I told you so” game, but…I told you so.  Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article saying why I didn’t...

Eagles vs. Panthers Week 12: The “Real” Preview

It was supposed to Cam Newton, the rookie sensation in 2011, versus the resurgent Michael Vick.  The Panthers appeared...

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...

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...

The Eagles Need an Entirely New Secondary in 2013

The Philadelphia Eagles could have four new starters in the secondary next season.  Nnamdi Asomugha, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman could, and perhaps should, be gone after this year, albeit for different reasons. Whether it’s coaching or just a dysfunctional mesh of personalities, these guys can’t communicate on the field with one another and/or they just plain stink. How...

Decision-Making by Andy Reid in Week 11 Was Almost Criminal

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and his team have hit rock bottom after a completely demoralizing loss to the Redskins.  To boot, there were several questionable decisions made in yesterday’s game that reek of a man who just doesn’t know what to do anymore. First, the decision was made to start Jake Scott over an active Danny Watkins at right guard.  Scott had not...
