The Daily Numbers - Dec. 31
The Daily Numbers: 1 more day left in 2012. At midnight we ring in 2013.
0 days left in the reign of Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Owner Jeff Lurie will announce this morning he has been dismissed.
130-93-1 regular season record for Andy Reid, winningest coach in Eagles history.
.583 winning percentage.
10 playoff wins.
1 Super Bowl appearance; unfortunately 0 Super Bowl trophies.
8-8 record last year, followed up by disastrous 4-12 skid this year that paves the way for Reid’s exit.
42-7 loss that could not be more ugly yesterday as the Birds quit on their embattled coach against the Giants.
3-13, Eagles record in 1998 under Ray Rhodes, who was fired. Lurie then hired Green Bay assistant Andy Reid.
14 years as the head coach that will come to end today.
4, as in the No. 4 pick in the draft, what the Eagles get as a reward for their 4-12 season.
3 consecutive losses in NFC title game before Eagles finally broke through, beating Michael Vick and the Falcons, 27-10 on Jan. 23, 2005.
66-61-1, Reid’s record since losing that Super Bowl.
15.5 million dollars, what the Eagles owe Vick if he plays for them next year. He’ll either be released, traded or asked to renegotiate his deal.
3 million dollars, how much Vick is guaranteed if he’s on the Eagles roster on Feb. 6.
Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.
Here’s one vote for Penn State coach Bill O’Brien to be the next head coach of the Eagles. I know it will upset fans in Happy Valley if O’Brien leaves after one year, but I think he would be perfect for Birds’ boss.
I Don’t Get It: The Eagles players talked all year about how much they loved Andy Reid and respected him. They didn’t yesterday, when most of them, especially on defense, mailed it in, failing to show up for final game vs. Giants.
Today’s Upper: Kudos to Michael Vick. The man is a warrior and was again yesterday. One of the few Eagles along with LeSean McCoy who could walk off that field with his head held high.
Quote Box: “There will be better days ahead.”
- Andy Reid, to his team after yesterday’s season-ending loss to Giants.
