YOU'VE NOTICED Andy Reid's mustache. It has grown since last season. It's bigger than Montana and we don't mean Joe. Sports Illustrated has gotten the story behind the mustache. Reid told the magazine that he stopped trimming the 'stache after the death of Andy Cheschelski, who was Reid's high school offensive line coach. Reid said that Cheschelski and Danny Hime, another of his high school coaches, both had large mustaches. When Cheschelski died, Reid told Hime he wanted to pay tribute to him by not trimming his mustache.

IN AN ANONYMOUS first-person plural, the Daily News editorial writers recently chose to criticize Andy Reid, albeit "gently. " His silence, the writers argued, was not "golden," they say. I would like to comment on those parents whose children have troubles. And I would like to call them "the Parents in God's First Orchestra. " They are the blessed ones. So often I have seen 24-hour parents toiling and anguishing away about what one waitress once explained to me was "that phone call.

The office door would close softly behind him. The man who always worked, who never took a break, who essentially lived at the office, was leaving early. Andy Reid had to go see his sons. Every Thursday night for nearly two years, Reid would quickly eat dinner in his office and then put aside his job as the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles and drive, sometimes longer than an hour, to a prison. For one son, Reid had to go to three prisons. He was a very successful coach of a very successful franchise in the National Football League.

ANDY REID hasn't said much to the press since his overhyped, underproducing Eagles ended the season at .500. But Reid broke his silence (somewhat) to Sixers.com's Matt Cord at the Sixers game Wednesday, answering some pretty unique questions - just not on anything that Eagles fans really wanted to hear. However, if you're an Andy fan, there were some interesting tidbits from Big Red. On the Sixers: "It's great to be here. This is an enjoyable product they are putting out here.

THEY BOOED Andy Reid the first time the Eagles took a lead yesterday. The 69,144 at Lincoln Financial Field booed, I suppose, because they had seen this movie one too many times, knew what was coming next, the way fans of horror flicks do. A sure touchdown had devolved into the worst kind of compromise: A 14-play, 88-yard drive that used almost 9 minutes of the clock provided just a field goal, just a two-point advantage over the New...

Andy Reid heard them. He heard them loud and clear. Four days after his son died and two days after he buried him, the Eagles coach walked onto the Lincoln Financial Field grass Thursday night for what was essentially a meaningless game. In their 2012 preseason opener, the Eagles starters played as if the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers had no significance. The team won, 24-23, on Alex Henery's 51-yard field goal with 12 seconds left. The Eagles won despite the futility of the starters, and they survived a scare - and the prospect of Mike Kafka as their starting quarterback - when an X-ray on Michael Vick's left thumb came back negative.

INDIANAPOLIS - Andy Reid spoke recently with Howie Roseman, Reid said yesterday, and "Howie's doing good. " Maybe you read that sentence, shrugged your shoulders and said, "eh. " But for the Eagles' information-starved media corps, which has not laid eyes on the former general manager since the Jan. 2 restructuring of the team's front office, this was a gleaming, rare pearl of information. The way most teams operate, yesterday's opening of the NFL Scouting Combine would have been a day to talk to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly about how he sees his role in the draft process, now that Kelly has full personnel control.

THE NEW YORK Jets' Rex Ryan is the NFL's most overrated coach, according to a poll of league players. Eagles coach Andy Reid was third in the voting, behind New England's Bill Belichick. The survey was conducted by the Sporting News, which polled 103 players from 27 teams. The players were not allowed to vote for their own coach. Ryan was named on 35 ballots, followed by Belichick (16), Reid (nine) and Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan (eight). The Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin was fifth with four votes, followed by the St. Louis Rams' Jeff Fishers, San Francisco 49ers' Jim Harbaugh and San Diego Chargers' Norv Turner, who were tied for sixth with three votes each.

Donna Widmann, 37, a seventh-grade English teacher, was not thrilled by the announcement Tuesday that Andy Reid would again be the Eagles coach next season. "I know my whole family is not happy about it," said Widmann as she waited for a train at Suburban Station for a late-afternoon commute home to Chestnut Hill. However, other fans at the station were pleased with team owner Jeffrey Lurie's decision to keep Reid for a 14th season. "You just can't throw Andy under the bus," said Dwayne Green, 50, of Wilmington.

APPARENTLY, JEFFREY Lurie really does want to do this thing right. That's something we haven't been able to say until now. Not because it wasn't true, but because the signs he's sent since firing Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz have been as garbled as the explanations he's offered in defense of them. Until now. On the surface, the only way to interpret the Eagles' hiring of Joe Douglas to head up the team's personnel department is that Lurie was serious when he said he wanted to build a legitimate personnel department, and that, this time, he would hold Howie Roseman accountable for the performance of that department.

When rookie head coach Andy Reid signed veteran backup Doug Pederson in 1999 and immediately installed him as the Eagles starting quarterback, come hell or high draft pick, Reid's mentor, Mike Holmgren, shook his head. "That can wreck your team," Holmgren, the Green Bay coach, said. Jobs aren't supposed to be handed out in March or April. Players in the locker room like to believe in a meritocracy, particularly if the lack of one might cost them a football game. Plus, how can the fans accept a starter - and not call for his highly anticipated replacement - when it doesn't appear the guy had to earn the position?

The Eagles' strategy to manage their quarterback situation for 2016 sounds wonderful in theory, as long as you ignore the phony promise at its core. Their theory is this: Once Sam Bradford wises up and realizes that the franchise will not trade him and that he has no leverage to force it to, he will have no choice but to report for training camp. At that time, the Eagles will, as head coach Doug Pederson told reporters after last week's NFL draft, "welcome [him] with open arms. . . . He's the leader of this football team.

This was Carson Wentz's day, but the Eagles couldn't avoid the other quarterback who wasn't in the room and hasn't been at the NovaCare Complex since requesting to be traded on Monday. Nor should Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson have been allowed to avoid him after they made the unprecedented decision to move up to the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft for a quarterback when they already had an entrenched starter in place. Whether you agree with Sam Bradford's reaction to what transpired last week or not - and it says here that he has overestimated his worth - what shouldn't be argued is that the Eagles did a poor job of anticipating the aftershocks of their franchise-altering trade.

DOUG PEDERSON knows better than anyone how little patience Eagles fans have. On the first play of his first start as Donovan McNabb's placeholder back in 1999, he underthrew Duce Staley on a swing pass out of the backfield. And got booed. It wouldn't be the last time. Pederson was jeered mercilessly in the nine games he started that season, as was the man who decided to keep running him out there for two-plus months while McNabb (mostly) watched and learned, Andy Reid. Eagles fans wanted to see the rookie from Syracuse, ready or not. They didn't want Pederson, a journeyman who had thrown 32 passes in four seasons with Miami and Green Bay. But Reid held his ground.

It is an interesting quirk of fate that Doug Pederson begins his tenure as Eagles head coach with the team holding the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft, exactly as was the case when Andy Reid took over 17 years ago. The histories of Pederson and Reid have been so intertwined that the obvious comparison as the Eagles prepare to select quarterback Carson Wentz on Thursday is to equate that with Reid's choice of Donovan McNabb in 1999. Re-creating Reid's tenure here, down to the opening draft pick of that era, isn't the worst thing to do. The man went to the playoffs in nine of his 14 seasons with the Eagles, won 130 regular-season and 10 postseason games, and was overseer of the longest sustained period of success in franchise history.

THE LAST TIME the Wide 9 was seen in these parts, it was helping grease the skids for Andy Reid's firing and being excoriated as a bad-awful defensive alignment that seemingly sacrificed everything else for the sake of sacks. The Wide 9, a deployment in which the defensive ends line up near the mezzanine-level concession stands so they can burn rubber around the offensive tackles and beat them to the quarterback, was brought to the Eagles in 2011 by Jim Washburn, who was hired as the team's defensive line coach shortly after Reid came up with the really, really dumb idea to make his longtime offensive line coach, Juan Castillo, his new defensive coordinator.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - It was clear from Doug Pederson's 69-minute session with reporters at the NFL meetings that Pederson will leave his defense in the hands of coordinator Jim Schwartz, won't try to get involved with how, say, Schwartz deploys his safeties. "I wanted to find that guy I could trust, that head coach of defense," said Pederson, who has gotten high marks around the league for hiring Schwartz, the former Lions head coach. "He's a guy that you can kind of turn the keys over to and say, 'This is your deal.' " But it was also clear that Pederson chose Schwartz for a specific reason, and it wasn't just because he has produced highly ranked defenses in previous NFL stops.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Andy Reid maintained strong relationships with the Eagles' decision makers after his dismissal. So when they asked him about Doug Pederson, Reid was ready with an endorsement. "I thought Doug was ready to be a head coach," Reid said Tuesday on a conference call. "He'd kind of done everything he could do here. I hated losing him because of our relationship, but I'm very happy and proud of him for the opportunity he has to lead the Birds there. " Pederson was a coordinator for only three seasons, but Reid thought he was exposed to enough to prepare him for a promotion.
