    Well, I did have to do a recovery!

    In one season he went from a person a bunch of people saw as a potential HC to fired.

    He will land as a DC elsewhere. Probably in a 3-4. My early prediction: Denver as Fox transitions the Broncos from a 3-4 back to a 4-3.

    I'd offer him a LB job though in Htown!:)

    Is Andy Reid the NFL King of Flip-Floppers, or what? Me thinks he has a career in politics.

    It used to be a lot worse than it is now, but I had no idea it was that bad.

    Basically, if Andy Ried says something these days, he means the opposite.

    Kobb is our starting QB; a few days later, Vick is the starter.
    McDermott is our 2011 DC; a few days later, he's fired.

    Basically, those aren't man boobs on Andy, they're real tits.

    I guess injuries and turnover took their toll on the Eagles D.

    They've been one of those teams that cuts bait on players while they still have some gas in the tank. I guess that bites you in the ass sometimes.

    I can't believe McDermott got fired though. It's a pretty odd time to do it. Seems like if you're going to fire a guy, the time to do it would be right when the season's over.

    Does McDermott do Linebackers? If so, good choice imo :)
