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.

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," 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.

BRETT FAVRE was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame Saturday night. While giving his speech, Favre recalled a time when then-Packers assistant Andy Reid had a problem with another staffer during a game. "So Andy gets his cord caught and he looks back, and it's this heavy-set guy who's standing on his cord," Favre said. "And Andy says to him, 'Hey! Get off the cord, you fat ass!' "This is one of our guys, now. He looks at Andy and says, 'Who are you calling a fat ass?' " The best part is that Reid, who was in attendance, laughed as hard as everyone else.

A former Eagles running back was asked Wednesday about his old team. He had left the Eagles a while ago, and he was bitter at the time of the departure, and probably had been bitter for a long time before then, too. Now he was fielding questions from reporters, but he didn't particularly want to answer the questions, because he didn't particularly want to talk about LeSean McCoy. "Our situations," Duce Staley said, "are totally different. " It's coming up on 12 years since Staley, who's been the Eagles' running backs coach since Chip Kelly took over as head coach in 2013, was himself at the center of offseason controversy.

PHOENIX - Almost three months after Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie empowered Chip Kelly with final say over football decisions and stripped Howie Roseman of personnel responsibilities, he explained that the change was made because of Kelly's vision of how the team should be built. Lurie suggested Tuesday that the decision was less about Roseman's evaluation skills than it was about maximizing Kelly's. It became clear after Lurie's 40-minute interview that the arranged marriage of Kelly and Roseman would not work because the coach wanted to pick his own personnel executive.

PHOENIX - Andy Reid once had control over personnel as coach of the Eagles. Now he doesn't have it, officially, in Kansas City, though Reid played a role in the hiring of his old Green Bay friend, John Dorsey, as the Chiefs' general manager. So, is having that power a good thing for a coach? And if it is, why didn't Reid want it anymore, after he was dismissed by the Eagles at the end of a 14-year run? "I think every situation's different. I loved doing it, when I did it. Where I'm at in my career, I'm glad I'm out of it," Reid said yesterday at the AFC coaches' breakfast, during the NFL meetings, which conclude today.

PHOENIX - When Andy Reid outbid the Eagles for Jeremy Maclin, the irony that the Chiefs coach was willing to spend top dollar on a wide receiver was not lost on anyone familiar with his past. Reid, of course, hardly ever gave big contracts to receivers when he was with the Eagles, and when he did sign Terrell Owens and DeSean Jackson to long-term deals, they were team-friendly. The rationale, one that team president Joe Banner also perpetuated, was that other positions, particularly along the lines, were of more importance.

It wasn't long ago that the Eagles earned a well-deserved reputation as a flinty-eyed organization that was quick to discard veteran players nearing the wrong side of 30, or who made just a little too much money, or had otherwise become expendable despite their previous contributions to the team. The best example, or at least the most referenced, was the previous administration's decision to let Brian Dawkins walk into free agency after the 2008 season. To the fans, it was a loss that was all about heart and soul.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Eagles added former Jets assistant coach Brian Smith to their coaching staff as assistant linebackers coach, a new position for the team. Smith, 35, spent the last two seasons as the Jets' assistant defensive backs coach. The Wilmington native had been with the team since 2007. He started his coaching career at UMass, where he was Giants receiver Victor Cruz's position coach. Smith played for the Minutemen as a strong safety and cornerback. He will work with outside-linebackers coach Bill McGovern and inside-linebackers coach Rick Minter.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ed Marynowitz's first seven months working for the Eagles overlapped with Andy Reid's final season in Philadelphia, giving Reid enough exposure to the team's new vice president of player personnel that the longtime coach praised Chip Kelly's decision to promote him. "Ed's on the rise, boy," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL's annual scouting combine. "He's a good one. I think it was a great choice by Chip. " In May 2012, the Eagles made seven front office transactions.

I THINK CHIP KELLY is really, really smart, one of the sharpest people I've met in sports. Eagles fans had better hope I'm right about that, because the restructuring the Eagles announced Friday, buried beneath layers of horrid corporate-speak, means their hopes and dreams are now totally riding on Kelly being not just a good coach but a transcendent, bronze-bust-in-Canton-level figure. Chip has a lot to prove and to learn to get to those heights. Bill Belichick had spent a quarter-century in the NFL, including a failed head-coaching stint in Cleveland, before he got the Patriots job and total personnel control.
