Almost immediately following a hefty dose (no pun intended) of that ass whoopin from the New York Giants, 42-7, the Eagles wasted no time in telling Andy Reid to kick rocks.

Reid, who’d been the NFL‘s longest tenured coach spending 14 seasons in Philly, was reportedly let go after a turbulent 2012.  He rebuilt, then destroyed Michael Vick and flatly refuse to let his all-world running back, Lesean McCoy, get his dirty hands the ball too much.

3rd and 1?  Better air it out.

4th and goal?  Let’s bring in four wide receivers.

Playing the worst run-defense in the NFL today?  We’ll trick them by throwing the ball 45 times!

Reid also endured personal tragedy, when his thugged out sons got cased up and did prison bids before one of them passed away earlier this year.

Things weren’t always bad though.  Dude went to the playoffs damn near every year and hit the Super Bowl once, on the strength of Terrell muh’fuckin Owens.  The Patriots outlasted them when Donovan McNabb had an on-field anxiety attack or some similar bitch-made episode.

It’s been an up-and-down run, but how appropriate is it that it was the Giants who gave ’em that work and, in the end, sent Reid on his way?
