With Andy Reid all but certain to be gone, we will be examining some new head coaching candidates for the Birds this next season. First, we looked in to Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. This week, we’ll look at certain man named GRUDEN….’s little brother.
Jay Gruden – Offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals.
It’s that time of the week again! I know you were all so excited. Without further adieu, the plays of the week:
Jrue Holiday Spin Cycle to the Hoop
This game was described by Carolina wide receiver Steve Smith as a “battle of the bads,” which is impossible to argue with. At 2-8 and 3-7, these two teams are the third and sixth worst in the league. It’s going to be an ugly contest for sure as two teams with previously high-powered offenses have been lacking their mojo all season long. To make matters worse for Philadelphians, consider this: Andy Reid will be fired at the end of the year, but Ron Rivera and Sean McDermott-former members of Reid’s staff-will likely be out at the end of the year from Carolina as well. How totally unpleasant.
And now, what you should watch for tonight.
With Andy Reid simply waiting to be fired, the focus is on the Eagles future. So, what we’ll be doing for the next few weeks is coming up with some interesting candidates for the job. And your first candidate is…
You know what that means…tons of football, food, and family! So, I’d just like to post one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions….
Not only is the turducken a classic part of football history, but it’s without a doubt the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. So, if anyone is having one today it’s ok that you “forgot” to invite me. I forgive you and will be right over.
Getting you through your life, one Wednesday at a time. This week, we’re (finally) joined by our third writer, Ransom, who graces us with his Sixers expertise and beautiful, curly, ginger locks.
Here’s what we’re talking about:

It’s a been a while, but back by popular demand: the weekly Philly play of the week poll. Check out our choices for top plays from last week and pick the one you’ll be talking about ’round the cooler this week:
J-Rich with the in-game 360 against the The Bucks:
The lifeless Birds slogged through this game with the Hogs
Until Shady left late with his head in a fog
The offensive line‘s cogs looked a whole lot like dogs
Allowing poor Nick to be beaten and flogged
And RG3 had to do no more than jog
To open a hole that Todd Bowles could not clog
Asomugha moved like he was waterlogged
And the safeties, it seems, had no dialogue
Lo, the Birds’ players seem to be bogged
Down by a weight, like they’re chained to a log
Made of the ire of fanatics agog
For a change now that their prince has turned frog
For Reid’s career, this is a poor epilogue
…and if this wasn’t my blog, I’d be out of a job.
