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.

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.

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.

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," Widmann said 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.

He was introduced to us 14 years ago as The Man With a Plan, and sure enough there it was, The Plan, a binder the size of the Manhattan phone book, an impressive repository of detail and minutiae down to the last bit of, well, what does The Plan say is on the docket for 2:21 p.m. on the second Tuesday of training camp? And with that Andy Reid had Jeffrey Lurie at hello. Or, rather, at precisely 2:21 p.m. the second Tuesday of training camp. Never mind that Andy Reid had never been a head coach in the NFL. Or a coordinator.

Now that we've all moved on from the Total Freakout Stage of DeSean Jackson's departure from the Eagles - we have all moved on, right? - it's appropriate to examine just how they'll go about replacing him, if that's even the proper way to phrase it. Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns last season - gaudy numbers for any wide receiver and the best in his six-year career. In Chip Kelly's first season as head coach, the Eagles finished fourth in the NFL in points, second in total yards, third in net yards per pass attempt, and first in net yards per rushing attempt, and now that Jackson's gone, the impulse is to wonder how they can approximate such productivity.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Wearing his customary Aloha shirt, Andy Reid sauntered into Salon V at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lake Resort early yesterday morning, sat down at his assigned table at the AFC coaches-media breakfast and immediately noticed two reporters from Philadelphia sitting at his table. "Did you just come over here by instinct?" the former Eagles coach said with a smile. I might not regularly cover him anymore, but the NFL's annual March shindig just wouldn't feel like the NFL's annual March shindig without Breakfast With Big Red. I've sat across the table from him at 16 of these now, including the 14 he attended as the head coach of the Eagles.

Michael Vick moved north to the New York Jets Friday night after an improbable five-year journey in Philadelphia. It started with a cold reception from Jeffrey Lurie and ended with the owner making a glowing statement about the quarterback whose signing created a nationwide controversy. So now that it's over, what should we make of it all? "Much ado about mediocrity" would probably be the most fitting headline. Vick was here for 80 regular-season games. He started half of them and won half of the 40 he started.

Chip Kelly sure likes Andy Reid's players. In a span of three days last week, the Eagles handed out approximately $133 million in contracts - $46 million of which was guaranteed - to four offensive players who were Reid acquisitions. Nine of the projected 11 starters on offense were here prior to Kelly's arrival and are under contract through at least next season. Rip Reid for his last two seasons in Philadelphia, his subpar record in drafting defensive players, and some lousy late-tenure coaching hires, but he knew how to evaluate players on offense.

When Joe Banner stepped down as team president in June 2012, many assumed that it was Andy Reid who had won a power struggle within the Eagles front office. In truth it was Howie Roseman. While Roseman had just finished his second year as general manager, Banner was still lording authority over his former protege. Reid continued to have final say on football matters, but managing the salary cap and other contract decisions remained Banner's baby. Roseman had plenty to do and was influential in certain aspects, but the Reid-Banner axis of power limited the clout of the NFL's youngest GM. He (naturally)

Michael Vick spent a good bit of his Monday morning cleaning out his locker at the NovaCare Complex, filling a large gray garbage bag with personal items, autographing gloves and sneakers so they could be donated to charity. The whole process had an air of finality that even Vick himself couldn't help but recognize. He is a free agent. He wants to be an NFL starting quarterback again. That will not happen here, not with Nick Foles around, and Vick knows it. "It's hard to sum up my time here," he said.

Eagles fans know how an Andy Reid news conference goes after a loss - especially a complete and utter disaster, such as the Kansas City Chiefs' blowing a 28-point lead to fall, 45-44, to the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card game on Saturday. Ahem. It's on him. He has to do a better job of putting his players in better position to win. Time's yours. This painful loss, though, brought in a new wrinkle - stunned silence. "Sometimes the game speaks for itself, so you don't have to say a whole lot," he told reporters during their time on Saturday.

During his day-after news conference Monday, Chip Kelly quoted Winston Churchill: "Problems in victory are more agreeable than problems in defeat, but no less difficult. " Kelly was talking about the way his coaches and players reviewed film, particularly the film from those games they win - such as Sunday's. The Eagles scored four fourth-quarter touchdowns and routed the Detroit Lions, 34-20, and have won five straight games now, and Kelly was making an important point: A team must be as meticulous about correcting its in-game mistakes after it wins as it is after it loses.

One day during the 2012 offseason, Marty Mornhinweg turned on the college tape of Nick Foles and liked what he saw. So he walked down the second floor corridor at the NovaCare Complex and into Andy Reid's office. "I said, 'Have you seen this Foles kid?'" Mornhinweg said recently to The Inquirer. "So he watches him, likes what he's watching and says, 'Where's Doug?'" Doug Pederson, the Eagles quarterback coach, was on the road. He was working out other quarterbacks and by coincidence was scheduled next to be in Phoenix to visit Brock Osweiler, the 6-foot-7 Arizona State quarterback.

It happened only once during Andy Reid's 14 seasons in Philadelphia and never for an entire season. For a fleeting moment during the Eagles' 2004 run to the Super Bowl, we saw what the combination of size and speed could do at the wide receiver position. Mega-diva that he was, nobody in the game could match Terrell Owens' talent at that time. He probably would own Mike Quick's single-season team record for receiving yards had it not been for a horse-collar tackle (legal at the time) by Dallas safety Roy Williams that fractured the receiver's right leg in Week 14. We offer this reminder now because the No. 1 receiver in the NFL is coming to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday when the Eagles play the Detroit Lions in a huge game between 7-5 teams that sit atop their respective divisions.
