The Late Movies: Songs About Eagles Coach Andy Reid Getting Fired

Image credit: 

I've mentioned several times that I'm from Philadelphia and while I'm not a big football fan, it's awfully hard to miss the most talked-about story of the season: How awful the Eagles have been. For months, the city has been speculating that Coach Andy Reid would be out after 14 years heading the team without a Super Bowl ring. People—like the six aspiring singers below—even wrote songs calling for his dismissal from the Eagles. Reid was fired on Monday morning and we bet these folks are pretty darn happy about it.
