The only thing better than looking forward to next weeks Giants game is to revel in the epic downward spiral the Philadelphia Eagles are currently experiencing.
“Fire Andy! We want Gruden!”
This is what it has come to in Andy Reid’s 13th season as head coach of the Eagles. His team is 1-4 after a miserable, sloppy, unprofessional effort here led to a 31-24 loss. Every major decision Reid has made in the last three years has blown up in his ever-redder face. The seasons of consistent success, of double-digit wins and deep playoff runs, feel like ancient history.
This 2011 team was overhyped after the spending spree in the beginning of August. Those sky-high expectations make this horrendous start look even worse.
