08:04 AM ET 12.02 | Another day, another loss for Philadelphia. Most weeks, the Eagles stink on Sunday. They have been known to lay an egg on Monday night. Now we can add Thursday to the list. Clearly, the only day this team cares about is Tuesday. That's payday. There can be no illusions after this horrible, 31-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles are not a better football team than their record says they are. They are 4-8 because they are awful. It's one thing when Bill Belichick and Tom Brady come to town and slash you to ribbons, which is what happened on Sunday. But this was Pete Carroll and Tarvaris Jackson. This was Seattle, another 4-7 team that got beaten at home by Washington (4-7 as well) four days earlier.

Reid still gets to finish the season. After that, there will be a major house-cleaning.

Andy Reid survives. Why? No clue. Lurie likes him... I guess.

A larger group of do-nothings has not been fielded since the last GOP debate.

Eggles, please keep loosing so my GIANTS can get a playoff spot. Thanks!

Just now they are realizing it? The NFL had it figured out weeks ago.

It's going to take more than the Eagles losing to get the Giants in. They are going to have to do it for themselves. Very doubtful that a NFC East team can pull a wild card this year. Bears, Falcons and Lions are more likely.

how does that help the giants? they play the cowboys again i'm sure the giants would love if the eagles somehow won that game. other than that the eagles are irrelevant to the Giants playoff hopes. And what? only a fair weather fan with the BROWNS? How are u the ClevelandGuy?

I wish I could feel sorry for the Dream team, but my Giveadamn is busted.

The National Wildlife Federation wants to put the Eagles back on the Endangered Species List.

They went from Sugar to Sh^t. What a waste.

That's the Ben Franklin way. The Eagles are done by Thanksgiving and the national bird is a turkey.

And we thought we'd have to wait until Christmas for their goose to be cooked.

We don't see a lot of games end in a tie in the NFL. So, when a 4-7 team plays another 4-7 team, one of them has to suck less and win. At this point, the Eagles might as well play for the better draft picks.
