Giants blow out Eagles 42-7 to end miserable season

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The worst Eagles season in over a decade ends not with a roar, but a whimper. The Eagles were blown out by the Giants 42-7 at Met Life stadium in what is almost certainly the final game of Andy Reid's 14 year tenure in Philadelphia.

In fact, Bob Grotz is reporting that the decision has already been made and that Reid will be fired tomorrow. Howard Eskin says that Reid was told Friday that he would be let go.

The game really isn't worth recapping very much. It was typical of what we've seen a lot of this season. Michael Vick really never got anything going and turned the ball over again. The secondary was completely torched once again and finally Nnamdi Asomugha was shown the bench. There wasn't much in the way of pass protection.

Like I said, typical 2012 Eagles.

But tomorrow everything changes. Andy Reid will be let go and the search for the next guy to lead the franchise will begin. Not too long after we'll start seeing some significant roster purges. Michael Vick, Nnamdi Asomugha & Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie will likely headline that list.

The good thing is, we can now start to feel positive about what comes next with this team. We don't need to dread next week. Next week is going to be exciting. Very quickly we'll start hearing about interviews being set up. If the Eagles want to speak any of the high profile aassistants like Mike McCoy, Greg Roman or Dirk Koetter they'll need to do so this week while their teams are on a bye.

So let's start to feel good Eagles fans. It only gets better from here.
