I feel a bit of déjà vu here. Seems like I just put out a Smeagols' edition a week after RGIII didn't play, and a week before playing Dallas. Oh well, it's not too much trouble to do it over again. From the Philadelphia Daily News:

Foles shows promise, and weaknesses
Paul Domowitch, Daily News NFL Columnist

ImageMel Evans/AP
Nick Foles threw for 345 yards against the Redskins Sunday.

Athletes often are defined more by their failures than their successes. That may be unfair, but it's just the way it is.

The Super Bowls they didn't win. The fourth-quarter comebacks they didn't engineer. The final out they didn't get. The home run they didn't hit. The last-second shot that didn't go in.

So it is with Nick Foles right now. Considering the chaos going on around him, the third-round rookie has played pretty well since replacing Michael Vick as the Eagles' starting quarterback last month.

Notched his second 300-yard passing performance in 3 weeks in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Redskins. In six starts and 27 quarters of action, he's completed a respectable 60.7 percent of his passes, has thrown just five interceptions in 265 attempts and has a 79.1 passer rating, which is better than fellow rookies Ryan Tannehill, Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden, who all were taken well ahead of him in last April's draft.

But as Foles attempts to prove that he has the right stuff to be the Eagles' starting quarterback for the next 10 years, his season has been defined by two plays. One was that badly underthrown deep ball to Jeremy Maclin that was intercepted by Leon Hall in the Eagles' 34-13 loss to the Bengals on Dec. 13.

The other was another underthrown pass to an open Maclin late in Sunday's game.

With the Eagles trailing 27-13, Foles engineered a six-play, 61-yard scoring drive that helped his team close the gap to seven points. Completed three of four passes for 41 yards, including a 10-yard completion to Damaris Johnson on third-and-7 and a 25-yarder to running back LeSean McCoy that set up a 17-yard touchdown run by Dion Lewis with just under 9 minutes left in the game.

After the defense forced the Redskins to punt, the Eagles got the ball back on their 15 with 4:15 left. Foles proceeded to complete eight straight passes, the last an 8-yarder to McCoy that gave the Eagles a second-and-2 at the Washington 17 with 28 seconds left.

With no one open, he threw his next attempt out of the end zone. On the next play, Maclin, who caught an earlier 27-yard touchdown pass from Foles and finished with eight catches for 116 yards, was open in the end zone between cornerback Richard Crawford and safety Madieu Williams. Foles saw him, but his throw was short.

Foles completed a 12-yard pass to McCoy on the next play that gave the Eagles a first down at the Washington 5 with 11 seconds left. But they had squandered their best scoring opportunity. A pass to tight end Evan Moore almost was intercepted and fell incomplete.

The game ended one play later when Foles was pressured and was called for intentional grounding as he tried to throw the ball away and buy one more shot at the end zone.

"I just have to drive the ball, continue to drive it out there," Foles said of his underthrown end-zone pass to Maclin. "Maclin ran a great route and I have to take advantage of that and get the ball out there to him. Give him an opportunity to make a play."

Foles suffered a contusion on his throwing hand in the first half. It was X-rayed at halftime, and coach Andy Reid said it was "pretty sore." But the rookie didn't use the injury as an excuse for the poor throw.

"It didn't affect my throwing at all," he said.

Said Reid: "You're going to have that at that position. You're going to have those things that you have to work through, and it's important as a young guy that you do that. I thought he handled everything for the most part very well in that second half. I thought he played better in the second half than he did in the first half. So he battled through that thing."

Foles completed 32 of 48 passes for 345 yards. He was 18-for-26 in the second half and 12-for-19 in the fourth quarter. But he also had two costly turnovers that the Redskins turned into 10 points.

Late in the first quarter, after the Eagles drove inside the Washington 30, he was flushed out of the pocket and had the ball knocked out of his grasp from behind by linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. The Redskins eventually cashed that in for the first of two Kai Forbath field goals.

Later in the second quarter, with the Eagles clinging to a 7-6 lead, Foles had a pass for Maclin deflected by nose tackle Barry Cofield and picked off by linebacker London Fletcher. The Redskins converted that turnover into a touchdown when Robert Griffin III hit Josh Morgan with an 11-yard scoring pass.

"I have to eliminate mistakes," Foles said. "I fumbled and threw an interception and it's the quarterback's job to make sure that we get more points on the board than the other team, and I didn't do my job today.

"It's frustrating because I'm hard on myself and I want to win. But I'm going to keep working hard and we're going to stay together. It's been a tough year, but we still have each other and I know we're going to keep going to work."

With one game left, the organization has liked much of what it has seen from Foles. But there's no way to know for sure this soon whether, going forward, he can be to them what Griffin is going to be to the Redskins and what Luck is going to be to the Colts.

But he is making believers of his teammates.

"He's so poised, man," McCoy said. "His attitude in the huddle and his leadership. You really can't tell that he's a rookie. It's his attitude. Everything is always positive and he's motivational all the time. I can see in the future he can be an outstanding quarterback. I can definitely see that in the future."

DID YOU NOTICE?

* Guard Danny Watkins was a healthy scratch for the first time since early last season. That's right. Matt Tennant, who was claimed off waivers in late October, was activated instead of the team's 2011 first-round pick.

* LeSean McCoy, who had missed four games because of a concussion, touched the ball on the Eagles' first two offensive plays. Ran for a 7-yard gain, then caught a 6-yard pass. The guy who both Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg said was going to play limited snaps, 22 touches. That was his most touches since Week 4, when he had 26 against the Giants.

* Robert Griffin III wore a brace on his injured right knee. He ran the ball just two times, which was his second fewest carries of the season. He had just one rushing attempt against the Falcons in Week 5.

* The nice recognition and play by safety Colt Anderson to break up a fourth-and-2 pass to Santana Moss on the Redskins' first possession. Unfortunately for him, he later got beat by Moss for a 22-yard touchdown.

* Bryce Brown replaced Brandon Boykin as the Eagles' kickoff returner. Didn't make any difference. He averaged just 18.5 yards per return.

* Both of Nick Foles' first-half turnovers came on third down.

* The costly holding penalty on left tackle King Dunlap on a first-down play at the Washington 12 late in the first half. It effectively killed the drive and the Eagles ended up having to settle for an Alex Henery field goal.

* Brandon Boykin got credit for his first NFL sack on that backward pass to Santana Moss in the third quarter that RGIII ended up recovering at his own 3.

* Nick Foles tripped over right tackle Dennis Kelly's feet stepping up in the pocket on a fourth-and-2 play in the third quarter.

* The nice cutback by Dion Lewis on his 17-yard touchdown run.

* The Redskins' unsuccessful attempt to get the Eagles to jump offsides on a fourth-and-1 in the fourth quarter. They ended up taking a delay of game and punting the ball away.

BY THE NUMBERS

* The Eagles scored on their first possession for only the third time in 15 games.

* In 15 games, the Eagles have scored just 38 points on their first and second possessions and have committed nine turnovers and had a punt blocked.

* The Eagles have lost 10 fumbles in the last five games. They have lost at least one fumble in 13 of their 15 games.

* The Eagles have a league-high 36 turnovers, which opponents have converted into 133 points (3.7 points per turnover). They have just 13 takeaways, which they've turned into 40 points (3.1).

* With his 345-yard performance, Nick Foles has 1,699 passing yards, passing John Reaves for the Eagles' rookie record. Foles also holds the team's rookie record for attempts (265) and completions (161).

* LeSean McCoy's 77 receiving yards were his most since an 86-yard receiving performance against Houston on Dec. 2, 2010.

* Nick Foles completed just two of six passes in the red zone against the Redskins. For the season, he's 10-for-30 for 76 yards, four TDs and no interceptions in the red zone and has been sacked two times, including once Sunday.

* Nick Foles was 12-for-19 for 106 yards in the fourth quarter. For the season, he has a 70.9 fourth-quarter passer rating. He has completed just 53.1 percent of his passes and has averaged 5.3 yards per attempt in the fourth quarter.

* Jeremy Maclin was targeted a team-high 14 times (8 catches). In the last three games, he has been targeted 36 times for 21 catches.

* LeSean McCoy, who was targeted 11 times and had a team-high nine receptions, has been targeted 61 times this season and has 49 catches.

* The Eagles have just 27 offensive touchdowns in 15 games. Only two of those 27 touchdown drives have been less than 61 yards, and both of those came in the second week, against Baltimore.

* Brandon Boykin posted his first career sack and forced fumble. The Eagles have 29 sacks this season by 11 different players.

And:

No surprise as Eagles drop another one to Redskins
LES BOWEN, Daily News Staff Writer

ImageRon Cortes/Staff Photographer
Andy Reid walks off the Linc possibly for the last time.

IF THE COURSE of the 2012 season had taught us anything, it had taught us that Andy Reid's final game at Lincoln Financial Field was not fated to end in some sort of miraculous comeback to win in overtime, with giddy fist-pumps and fireworks and adulation. You felt that in your bones, even as Nick Foles drove the Eagles downfield for what would have been the tying score in the final seconds Sunday.

So when Ed Hochuli's crew gathered to discuss the ball Foles tried to throw away as he was hit by Stephen Bowen, on second-and-goal from the Washington Redskins' 5, with 1 second remaining on the clock after the ball bounced off the turf nearest right tackle Dennis Kelly, there could only be one outcome, the one Hochuli eventually announced: intentional grounding, 10-second runoff on the penalty, game over, Eagles lose, 27-20.

Reid was off and running to a midfield congratulation of Redskins coach Mike Shanahan before the Linc crowd fully grasped what had happened. Then Reid was churning toward the tunnel, surrounded by an armada of photographers. Somehow, Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett broke through the escort and Reid pulled up for a hug - a poignant moment between the two finalists for the Eagles' head-coaching job 14 years ago next month. Then Andy was under the south end-zone stands and gone, as some hardy loyalists in the seats nearby chanted his name.

"We have great fans. I've always said that we're kind of on the same page," Reid said, apparently not making a joke. "When you stink, they let you know you stink, and when you're doing good, they're going to let you know you're doing good. I got it. I understand. I understand the situation. I appreciate everything."

Asked about speculation that this was his final home game, with his team 4-11 and out of the playoffs for the second year in a row, both times having been touted as a contender, Reid said: "I don't know that. I have nothing to tell you on that. I'm the coach right now, and I'm just coaching. That's what I'm doing, the best that I possibly can."

No thoughts of auld lang syne?

"Those are good stories, but when you're in the process of getting ready for a game, and then you're playing the game, your mind doesn't go there - especially a game like that, which comes down to the last second. That's not where I'm at," Reid said.

That is where the rest of us are "at," though. So what did Sunday's game tell us about the players the next coach will inherit?

Foles, the rookie QB, again offered a mixed bag. He showed enough promise to make you think he could be a franchise quarterback in the making, while making enough terrible mistakes to keep you from being sure he will be such a rare and precious entity. Foles finished 32-for-48 for 345 yards, a touchdown, a deflected interception, an 85.9 passer rating and a killer fumble that turned momentum after the Eagles had seized it early. Also, there was the final-play intentional grounding, which should have been a safe throwaway a second or 2 earlier, and a play three snaps before that when Foles had Jeremy Maclin wide open in the end zone and threw it short. (In between there was a touchdown drop by new tight end Evan Moore, playing on 2 days of practice and somehow targeted with the game on the line.)

Foles suffered a bruised throwing hand in the first half, got halftime X-rays and stayed in the game. He was sacked five times behind an offensive line that seemed to misplace the synchronization it has found lately, particularly in blitz pickup. Foles stood tall under pressure, for the most part, made some strong plays.

LeSean McCoy, in his return from a four-game concussion absence, showed heart, grit, and those dazzling cuts that make him elite. McCoy caught nine passes for 77 yards, ran 13 times for another 45 that were accomplished without benefit of much blocking.

Brandon Graham continued to show that former defensive-line coach Jim Washburn deserved to be fired - wide-nine aside - simply for not starting Graham and playing him at least two-thirds of each game. Graham got no sacks Sunday, but he led the Eagles with six solo tackles and he surprised Robert Griffin III in the backfield, Griffin bouncing a shovel pass off the defensive end, who wasn't supposed to be between the QB and the receiver.

Griffin, wearing a brace on the left knee that caused him to miss last week's game, ignored the Eagles' corners to work the middle of the field to lethal effect, like a boxer bypassing the jaw to work the ribs. The Eagles' safeties and linebackers couldn't stop the pounding, even with Nate Allen benched, as Griffin piloted the Redskins to their sixth win in a row, putting the NFC East title within their grasp.

Colt Anderson did manage the first Eagles interception in nine games, on a ball that bounced off the intended receiver, but Griffin, often afforded excellent field position, completed 16 of 24 passes for 198 yards, two beautifully thrown touchdowns and the one pick. His passer rating was 102.4, which is plenty good, but 55.9 points under his perfect score in the previous meeting, a 31-6 Redskins victory. The knee seemed to make him more of a pocket passer than usual.

That earlier game, Foles was 21-for-46 with no touchdowns, two picks and a 40.5 rating, so you could chart the progress he has made in a month, against the first defense he has seen twice.

"I gotta eliminate mistakes," Foles said. "I fumbled and I threw an interception, and it's the quarterback's job to make sure we get more points on the board than the other team. I didn't do my job today. It's frustrating, because I'm hard on myself and I want to win . . . It's been a tough year, but we still have each other and I know we're going to keep going to work."

Reid said Foles "was better than he was the last time. We came up short, and obviously, it's not all the quarterback's fault. I thought the guys battled. I thought he did some good things."

Foles said Reid wasn't any different Sunday, amid the end-of-an-era atmosphere.

"He stays the same. He stays the path. He's a great head coach to play for," said Foles, who went through something very similar last year at the University of Arizona, when Mike Stoops was dismissed during the season. "He cares a lot about this city and he's done a lot of great things here . . . He doesn't change. He's solid. That's something I'm always going to respect about him."

Graham said: "It's a business. Coach Reid is fighting his butt off right now . . . today was just one of those days, I wish we could give it back to him, but you can't."

Could Graham have played the whole year the way he's playing now, had he been given the opportunity?

"Who knows?" he said. "I can only talk about what I'm doing now, and right now I've made sure I just stayed at it. Every week, you're going to get 100 percent from me. My teammates know that, and I know they'll do the same."

McCoy, who converted a crucial fourth down and then got out of bounds at the 5 to set up the final sequence, said the Eagles did a lot of good things, made a lot of good play calls on the final drive, as they moved from their 15 to Washington's 5.

"Another situation where we just don't capitalize," McCoy said. "That's kinda how the season went this year."

And, from the Philadelphia Enquirer:

Eagles fans bid adieu to home season and maybe Reid
Jeremy Roebuck, INQUIRER STAFF WRITER

ImageRon Cortes/Staff Photographer
Tom Gearhart poses in his Eagle van before the start of the game. Fans are questioned about this season and the possible departure of Andy Reid

Tom Gearhart has parked his family's Eagles-green Ford E-350 - complete with interior stadium seats and matching Astroturf - in the same spot in Lot F of Lincoln Financial Field before every home game for the last nine years.

But Sunday, the diehard season ticket holder proclaimed himself ready to break with at least one long-held tradition: Cheering on the coach who has led the team as long as Gearhart's van has occupied the lot.

"Andy Reid needs to go," the 40-year-old Newtown resident said, eyeing a poster-size photo of the mustachioed coach plastered inside his van's interior wall. "It's been a rough season. It's time to make a switch."

And if the cheers his comments elicited from fellow tailgaters offered any indication, Gearhart wasn't alone in his thinking.

Speculation regarding Reid's future with the Eagles continues to mount after yet another disappointing season. But at the team's last home game Sunday - a bitter 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins - many fans spoke of the man who has led the team for the past 14 years as if his fate had already been sealed.

Chants of "Fire Andy," which erupted after previous losses this year, were replaced Sunday by sober valedictory musings.

Though fans hardly acknowledged the coach when he took the field, he left to calls of "Andy! Andy!"

Barry Macort, 53, of Ambler, credited Reid with leading the team to an early string of NFC Eastern Division titles and a 2005 Super Bowl appearance.

But no amount of reminiscing could erase two years of dashed expectations or this year's losing record going into the season's final game next week, he said.

"They need to win," shouted Leslie Cuthbertson in response, hardly breaking what she called her traditional pregame "dance trance" - a superstition that appeared to consist mostly of bobbing to jock rock tunes blaring from nearby car stereos.

North Philadelphia resident Jerry Morris blamed Reid's difficult personal life for much of this year's disappointment.

The coach's son, Garrett Reid, died of a heroin overdose in August after a years-long addiction to the drug.

"I know it's been a hard year for him," the North Philadelphia resident said. "But the fans want to see the Eagles win, and that's all that matters."

But for Gene "The Face" Olewink, nicknamed among Lot F's tailgating crowd for his elaborate facial art each week, no excuse could make up for performance on the field.

Sunday, Olewink's face bore a traditional green and black. But last week, he said, he plastered a green-tinted homage to the Joker across his mug, a reference to the Batman villain's penchant for chaos - a word he said best described the Eagles as a team this year.

"We've had some lean years before, but this year it just seems like there was no heart," he said. "And that ultimately comes from the coach."

Reid has refused to speculate about his future, saying his focus was on Sunday's game and the team's final matchup next week against New York Giants.

Team owner Jeffrey Lurie has likewise said little about his head coach's future prospects.

But after Sunday's disappointing loss and countless beers, 53-year-old Gary Reed was willing to read more into that silence than most, offering a bold prediction amid his bout of inebriated postgame peacocking.

"Andy Reid will be back," he crowed. "At least, I want him back."

+1. I'm sure Andy Reid will get another HC job and continue to do well. Reid and McNabb gave Philadelphia a competitive, winning franchise for a decade. I look forward to years of Philadelphia trying to win with Nick Foles and a parade of loser coaches. Enjoy the basement, suckers.

Foles might be OK...but Reid is a good coach. Fools if the team lets him go, but another team will sign him quickly. I think Buddy Ryan's son has worn out the welcome and everything else in Jets'-ville.

Maybe Reid does TV commentary...although he seems to have too much dignity to go to Fox. (Jimmy Johnson????)

I always thought Reid was in the upper tier of coaches in tne NFL. And, I am also glad that phlly is still the only nfce team without 1 sb win.

Philly fans better be careful what they wish for as the next hc may be zorn-like.

While philly has talent........mccoy is a phenom at rb, and jackson and macklin are good wrs....not sure that foles will be the answer at qb, especially when the papers compare him favorably to weeden, and tannehill. But, last night I heard that vick was surely gone for next season....not only will he not take a pay cut, but he was concerned about the support he received from tne team this season.

Will be nice to see someone else in the nfce basement.....only thing better would be for the cowturds to join them there.

I think he was saying Reid to NYJ, not Ryan to PHI.

I don't think Reid deserves to be fired. I also don't think they fire him unless they have someone better on deck (and who would that be?).

I also do not believe that Reid will be back in Philthy.

Rumours have it that Chip Kelly is being lured to Philthy and Reid might be offered the Chargers and/or Jets jobs. Mariucci is also being talked about to go to San Diego. But this is all speculation for now.

Some teams will change not only HCs but also GMs (San Diego, Carolina and Jacksonville?). So, until the GMs are in place, no decision may be made about HCs.

What will the circus act in Jets land will bring next season, I would not even imagine. :shock:

I'm not fan of Reid's personally, but I think Lurie's an idiot no matter what he does now. Reid's a winner. If he fires him he's a dolt. And now if he keeps him he's a dolt because he let Reid twist in the wind for so long. What Lurie should have done a month or so ago is come out and say the only one safe is Reid. They are sitting down and evaluating everything from top to bottom.

I'm glad he didn't do that, now he's screwed himself either way. The Eagles are not likely to get as good a coach. I'd never want the guy to be coach of my team, but then I'd never root for the Eagles in the first place.
