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...

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 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 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.

There's a story about Danny Watkins and the Eagles, and it bears mentioning because the team's current top draft pick is struggling as much as the fireman did in his first NFL season. The Eagles knew from almost the first practice that Watkins didn't have what it took to perform in the pros, and certainly not at a level expected for a first-round offensive lineman. Before the Eagles had even donned pads in the lockout-delayed 2011 training camp, Andy Reid believed he had seen enough and confided to some in the organization that Watkins was a mental novice when it came to football.

HOUSTON - Even in his weakest moments, when the smoke from battle always obscured one side of his play chart, Andy Reid, the mad bomber of NFL coaches when with the Eagles, never asked Donovan McNabb to throw the football 62 times in a game. McNabb's career high for attempts was 58, and that came in the infamous 2008 overtime tie against Cincinnati as Reid kept calling passes even though a full gale was blowing through Paul Brown Stadium. If McNabb's understanding of the rule book had been accurate and the game continued after the overtime period, perhaps he would have equaled the number of passes thrown by Nick Foles last Sunday against Arizona.

Cough, cough . . . Injuries . . . For 14 years, Andy Reid opened his Eagles news conferences with a roll call of injuries. He's done the same in his two seasons since with the Chiefs. Reid would sometimes defer to trainer Rick Burkholder, who would give reporters minute details on various injuries. Burkholder, who followed Reid to Kansas City, once described guard Todd Herremans' dislocated cuboid bone injury by bringing out a skeleton model of a foot. Chip Kelly would rather dislocate his cuboid bone than give out information beyond injury reports mandated by the NFL. Like most coaches, he doesn't want to provide opposing teams with any more detail than is required.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Chip Kelly was not hired as the 21st head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles because he has a celebrated defensive mind. Even though his career started at Columbia as a defensive backs coach, it was the beautiful, fast-twitch offensive mind that made owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman pursue Kelly with the same kind of tenacious approach that the late Reggie White used to exhibit when he cut down opposing quarterbacks....

DONOVAN MCNABB has company. Like the former Eagles quarterback, Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin admitted on Sunday that he didn't know a game could end in a tie. That explains the quizzical look he had when players started walking onto the field to shake hands with the scoreboard reading, Panthers 37, Bengals 37. "I was like, what? I was confused," Benjamin told the Charlotte Observer. "They had to explain what was going on. In a way, it still kind of felt like a loss.

IT WAS in the spring of 2012 that Brandon Graham declared himself a bust. The Eagles' 2010 first-round pick was weary from sparring, on Twitter and elsewhere, with fans angry with him for not being Earl Thomas or Jason Pierre-Paul, two future Pro Bowl defensive players who were on the board when the Birds traded up to pick Graham 13th overall that year. So during OTAs that May, after 2 years in which a serious knee injury and its aftermath limited him to 16 games, Graham said he would wear the "bust" label, use it as motivation.

If you want to relive the past, go to kcchiefs.com, find an Andy Reid news conference video, close your eyes, and listen. "Injuries" will be followed by "looking forward to the challenge of playing" whatever team is next on Kansas City's schedule, and eventually the time will be yours because nothing has changed about Big Red's monotonous routine with the media. Once you get through all that, you should understand this: Reid does a lot of things well as a head football coach.

Two years ago, as Andy Reid was desperately trying to save his job, the Eagles came from behind to win three of their first four games and make it seem that Reid might satisfy owner Jeffrey Lurie's demand for improvement over the previous season's 8-8 record. The fans were understandably split about this prospect. On one hand, winning is nice, but on the other, a sunny day on Feb. 2 feels good only to the groundhog. It turned out there wasn't much for the Andy-must-go crowd to worry about.

There have been longer civic waiting periods for local sports fans than the one that stretched this year from Jan. 4 to Sunday's opening game for the Eagles. It just doesn't seem that way. The Phillies played baseball for 98 years before winning a championship in 1980. Now that's a long wait. The Flyers and Sixers are trying to end droughts that have lingered for more than a generation. Those are becoming considerable waits as well. But the Eagles - finally, the Eagles - appear headed toward breaking their own eternal streak of frustration.

As fair as it is to critique the disproportionate number of former Oregon players on the Eagles roster, the greater issue isn't a question of "Why?" but "How?" How did so many ex-Ducks - five on the 53-man roster, two on the practice squad - end up in Philadelphia? The obvious answer, of course, is Chip Kelly. But the follow-up is a much trickier question to answer: How did Kelly seemingly gain so much authority over player acquisition when the division of personnel power was billed as a 50-50 split between the new coach and general manager Howie Roseman?
