If there was a poll taken of Andy Reid’s approval ratings during the last days of his final season with the Eagles, you can almost certainly be assured that it would have been very low. Even Reid’s biggest supporters couldn’t have approved of the 4-12 records, and one of the ugliest seasons in team history.
Andy Reid returned to Lincoln Financial Field last night, and brought the 2012 Eagles with him.
When the made-up trade every week focuses on Thad Young, it’s not due to a lack of respect or like for Thad or his game.
With Chip Kelly’s offense being the talk of the town this week, I applaud the creativity exhibited in today’s made-up trade.
One of the most frustrating things about the last couple of years of the Andy Reid regime in Philadelphia was the use, or underuse, of running back LeSean McCoy.

The long summer of discontent is over, and football is here. I feel like we celebrate the return of football like 75 times a year, but this is really it. It’s not mini-camp or the start of training camp or the preseason or the draft, it’s actually football.
Would you make this four-team deal with the Sixers, Hornets, Rockets and Clippers?
This week’s made up trade for the Sixers is a three-team trade with the Rockets and the Bulls.

In this week’s made-up trade, the Sixers are involved in a three-team deal with the Nuggets and Thunder.
This is the part of the Eagles preseason that is usually pretty tough to get through. It’s like coming down off of a caffeine high. When training camp starts, everyone is so fired up. Then there’s the first preseason game, and everyone’s fired up. And then we have to wait an entire month through terrible football and lesser storylines until we get an actual game.
When you say it out loud, it does sound pretty crazy. “The owners of the Sixers are purchasing the New Jersey Devils. And Scott O’Neil, the CEO of the Sixers will also be the CEO of the Devils.” Sure, it’s not the first time one ownership group has owned teams in different markets. But the Devils are one of the Flyers biggest rivals, so this is new territory.
Brett Brown is introduced as new coach of the Sixers, and knows it will be a tough job.
Check out a potential four-team trade for the Sixers that involves the Lakers, Warriors and Rockets.
