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," 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.

CONSIDERING the carryover effect from the Eagles' season-opening victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, few people likely noticed that rookie coach Doug Pederson began his first real day-after news conference the same way his old boss, Andy Reid, began each one of his for more than a decade in Philadelphia: with an injury update. The first thing Pederson did after stepping to the podium at the NovaCare Center was talk about the health of his team, including the fact that tight end Zach Ertz and cornerback Leodis McKelvin were "day-to-day" after getting hurt Sunday.

Any attempt to project or predict what sort of head coach Doug Pederson will be for the Eagles has to start with his mentor, Andy Reid. And any comparison of Pederson and Reid as coaches has to begin with a comparison of them as players. The similarities between them, at least to this point in Pederson's coaching career, are that apparent and run that deep. Reid was a grunt, an offensive lineman at Brigham Young who was never drafted by an NFL team and never played a snap in the league.

YOU GOT THE idea that the conversation was not a long one, when Doug Pederson called Chase Daniel to tell him Sam Bradford had been traded, but that this did not mean Daniel would become the Eagles' starting quarterback. Pederson didn't bring up 1999, he said - that being the year Andy Reid brought Pederson to Philadelphia to be his starting QB until Donovan McNabb was ready. Back then, Pederson was looking to prove he could be somebody's long-term starter, use the year as a platform to make his case with another team, and he thought he'd get more than nine games to do that.

Michael Vick has become the Eagles' model for successful rehabilitation projects, but what Doug Pederson, Howie Roseman, and Jeffrey Lurie have failed to put into the proper context is that Andy Reid took that gamble 10 years into his tenure as Eagles coach, and only as his position atop the team became more tenuous. Vick, for the most part, was a model citizen and he even gave the Eagles a few hurrahs. But in the end he flamed out. Reid took a similar risk in drafting DeSean Jackson, but, again, it was only late into his term.

DOUG PEDERSON stepped up to the microphone at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday with a couple of pages ripped from the Andy Reid playbook. First he ducked the most anticipated answer of the day, the apparent timeline discrepancy over Lane Johnson's account of when he informed team officials of his PED violation and when the coach learned of it. Then, in addressing the trade for Dorial Green-Beckham, a talented athlete with a troubled past, he conjured the...

IT WASN'T a disaster. The bus didn't catch fire. Nobody missed the game. Plays were called, and run; there was not a single delay-of-game penalty. Maybe Doug Pederson really is more a Mike Holmgren disciple than an Andy Reid guy. Pederson, of course, played under Holmgren and Reid in Green Bay, followed Reid to Philadelphia in 1999 to hold a place for Donovan McNabb, eventually retired, became a high school coach, an Eagles low-level assistant under Reid before ascending to quarterbacks coach, then was part of the Reid exodus to Kansas City as offensive coordinator before the Eagles hired him in January to replace Chip Kelly.

Out in Santa Clara, the San Francisco 49ers players are falling all over each other praising the new head coach who doesn't make them fall all over each other very much. Practices are loud and fast, but they don't last too long. Sometimes they are off the field in an hour or 90 minutes, and the contact is limited. The players are happy, at least with that part of it. Let's see how long it lasts. Meanwhile, back in Philadelphia, the Eagles and their new head coach are on the field for three hours most days, the very limit allowed by the collective bargaining agreement, and they tackle to the ground in live sessions.

Doug, you can do it. You can color outside the lines of the Andy Reid blueprint. Don't do it just to be different or out of hubris. Do it because you analyzed one of the Reid's long-established habits, concluded that it wasn't effective and found a better answer. For example, Reid's offensive play-calling arrangement is cumbersome. When Reid has called plays as head coach, both with the Eagles and Chiefs, he has radioed the call to his offensive coordinator, who has in turn passed it along to the quarterback.

For Jason Peters, it's good that the new boss is the same as the old boss - or, that is, the older boss. The Eagles tackle, after Chip Kelly was fired last December, said that he wanted the replacement to be in the mold of Kelly's predecessor, Andy Reid. Peters got his wish. The Eagles hired Doug Pederson. But they also hired a coach who is, in many ways, the polar opposite of Kelly. And that appeared to be as much of Peters' motivation for wanting a Reid clone as was re-creating the four prior years (record: 33-31)

The Eagles won't practice in the shadows of Lehigh's South Mountain - or in the shadow of Andy Reid - next week, but Doug Pederson's training camp is likely to ignite flashbacks to training camps under Reid in Bethlehem. The differences between Pederson and his predecessor, Chip Kelly, will be apparent during the next three weeks. Kelly's unique practices appeared revolutionary compared to 14 years of the traditional Reid, and Pederson's practices might show that a new revolution is complete, and the Eagles are back where they were before Kelly took over.
