EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The scene was nice. For what looks like Andy Reid's final game as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, his wife and kids rode to MetLife Stadium on the team bus, as a show of support.
Nice scene, yes. Splendid show of support, indeed. But the pleasantness of that image quickly dissipated once the game began and the starkness of why Reid's likely firing is needed unfolded in what was an ugly, effortless performance by his team. This was a humiliating and embarrassing end to the Philadelphia career of a man who deserved better.
Though Homey the Clown would have deserved better than that uber-lazy demonstration of quit from Eagles players.
