Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

Andy is so dumb, I doubt he can Reid

Apologies for the awful headline.

Before today's game, the Birds were 0.5 games out of a playoff position. They were down only 10-7 at halftime of today's ultra-critical game when Coach Brigham decided to give up on the season. If he feels that Kevin Kolb is the future of the franchise, that's great. But there's no doubt McNabb is the better QB right now, and when you thrust a virtual rookie into the Baltimore Ravens defense, you deserve to lose by 29 points. If the score were 30-0 at half, do what you want - but not when you're in a 3-point game with a winning record.

An NFL head coach forfeiting a 3-point game at halftime in a playoff race is entirely unacceptable. For him to have a job the next day is even worse.
