Chiefs-Colts Was The Classic Playoff Game We Get Every Year

It happens nearly every year and we're always surprised, but Chiefs-Colts was another insane NFL playoff game. After a close first quarter, the Chiefs jumped all over the Colts in the second quarter with 21 points and headed into the half—on an Andrew Luck interception—with a 31-10 lead. The Colts came all the way… » 1/04/14 8:49pm 1/04/14 8:49pm

Shawn Andrews: Time With Eagles Felt Like "A Living Hell"

Offensive lineman Shawn Andrews spent all but one season of his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles, and according to him, the locker room atmosphere was absolutely horrible. Andrews says that then-quarterback (and current awful Twitter user) Donovan McNabb was disrespectful and constantly demanded attention. » 11/19/13 9:19pm 11/19/13 9:19pm

How The Chiefs Stopped Sucking In One Offseason

Before Week 1, if you'd said that the Kansas City Chiefs would be undefeated halfway through the season, you'd have been chased up and down Blue Parkway by men with butterfly nets. Yet here we are, on the cusp of November, and the last undefeated team in the NFL plays at Arrowhead Stadium. How'd the Chiefs go from a… » 10/31/13 5:32pm 10/31/13 5:32pm

Sal Paolantonio's Postgame Andy Reid Interview Was Weird

Andy Reid had every reason to be happy. His Kansas City Chiefs were freshly 3-0 with a win over his former squad in Philadelphia, and the team building the kind of camaraderie that leads to a Gatorade shower in Week Three. Reid did not seem very happy, though, when talking to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio after the game. » 9/20/13 12:57am 9/20/13 12:57am

Andy Reid And Donovan McNabb Were Better Than Philly Wants To Remember

I spent three years in the mid-aughts living in Wilmington, Del., i.e. the Hoboken of Philadelphia. From 2003 to 2006 I got to watch the Philadelphia Eagles in lieu of spending my autumn Sundays watching the season break somewhere inside Chad Pennington's upper body. It was a great time to be on the inside of… » 9/19/13 5:10pm 9/19/13 5:10pm

Let's Revisit The Dumb Stuff Rick Reilly Wrote About David Akers Last…

In December 2011, Rick Reilly wrote one of his trademark telethon-monologue columns about then-37-year-old kicker David Akers, who'd overcome all manner of personal hardship to kick a bunch of field goals for the 49ers. It was basically a nice story, but because Reilly lives in an oversimple, cardboard-thin moral… » 1/02/13 12:15pm 1/02/13 12:15pm

Andy Reid: Good Enough To Make You Hate Him For How Bad He Was

So of course when the clock at last ran out on Andy Reid in Philadelphia, nobody knew what the heck was going on. He was fired before the final game Sunday and coached anyway. No, he wasn't fired till after the game Sunday. No, not that either; he wasn't fired till Monday morning. One last utter clusterfuck of an… » 1/01/13 10:00am 1/01/13 10:00am

Andy Reid Was Fired Before Today's Game, Coached Anyway [Update: Reid…

If you're following our updating coach termination liveblog, you already know this—or, if you've watched the Eagles this year, you'd surmised it—but Andy Reid will not be patrolling the Eagles' sideline next year. Reuben Frank reports [video at link], "Jeff Lurie and Andy had spoken even before the game, possibly, I… » 12/30/12 6:20pm 12/30/12 6:20pm

Donovan McNabb Sounds Like He's Taking A Little Joy From The Eagles'…

Donovan McNabb is the best quarterback in Eagles history—this isn't even up for discussion. Deep down, with the benefit of a little distance, people in Philadelphia realize this. And while they may not regret hounding an over-the-hill McNabb out of town, they might wish they had been a little more appreciative of the… » 12/28/12 3:15pm 12/28/12 3:15pm
