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.

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.

Doug Pederson was introduced to the West Coast offense in 1996. Discarded by the expansion Panthers and then the Dolphins for the umpteenth time, the quarterback signed with the Packers early that season. He was only the third-stringer behind Brett Favre and Jim McMahon, but that first year playing for coach Mike Holmgren, in the system that Bill Walsh had mostly created, started a journey that has Pederson bringing the West Coast offense back to the Eagles some 20 years later. The Eagles, of course, have primarily had a West Coast-based system for most of the last two decades.

CHARLOTTE – Jeffrey Lurie is a decent man. Former coaches respect him. Former players adore him. The charitable wing of his Eagles has been recognized internationally for its consistent, gold-standard efforts; sorry, Mr. Mayor. Jeffrey Lurie is not perfect. He and his lieutenants, Howie Roseman and Don Smolenski, essentially excluded former defensive coordinator Sean McDermott in their coaching search; a homegrown, bootstraps guy who happens to be the defensive coordinator of the best team in football, which is playing in the NFC title game this weekend.

Doug Pederson stood in the front of the NovaCare Complex auditorium for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. He thanked lots of people and answered question after question about the most high-profile job he has ever held. Sure, he once opened a season as an NFL starting quarterback right here in Philadelphia, but nothing he did or said mattered much, which was good because he never did or said much that mattered. Pederson was Andy Reid's chosen body and mind to bridge the gap to the start of Donovan McNabb's career.

Jeffrey Lurie started with 25 coaching candidates, pared the group to 10, interviewed six coaches, and finally introduced Doug Pederson on Tuesday as the Eagles' next head coach. The process to find Chip Kelly's replacement came under scrutiny, but Lurie insisted it was thorough - and that Pederson, however familiar, "checked the box on everything. " Lurie witnessed Pederson's leadership blossom from player to assistant coach to head coaching candidate. He saw a 47-year-old who came across as a "smart, strategic thinker" with "unparalleled" communication skills and was "comfortable in [his]

The Eagles appeared to value Doug Pederson's connection to Andy Reid when they picked him to be the next head coach, but it does not sound as if Pederson will bring any of Reid's assistants from Kansas City to Philadelphia. That could be a factor at offensive coordinator, where Pederson's background with Brad Childress, the Chiefs' spread game analyst/special projects coach, led to speculation that he could be a possibility. Childress was Pederson's quarterbacks coach in 1999 and is a former Eagles offensive coordinator and Minnesota Vikings head coach.

NOT EVEN an hour after his Chiefs fell in New England, incumbent Eagles head coach Doug Pederson moved to flesh out his staff. The obvious goal: Familiarity and experience. With only seven seasons as an NFL assistant, the first two spent as a 41-year-old intern, it is fair to question Pederson's bona fides as a coach. Considering his wish list, it is hard to question Pederson's strategy as a hirer. He clearly wants to insulate himself with loyal, accomplished men. A league source said Sunday that, if he has his way, Pederson's chief lieutenants will include a former teammate and two former NFL head coaches who, like Pederson, owe their NFL careers to Andy Reid.

GIVEN THE CLOSE connection that Doug Pederson has to Andy Reid, it is human nature to think the Eagles' imminent hiring of the Kansas City Chiefs' offensive coordinator as head coach represents a return to the era Reid established in South Philadelphia for 14 seasons. After all, Reid, who was the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay when he was named Eagles coach in 1999, handpicked Pederson, the backup quarterback for the Packers, to be his first starter and help teach his system of offense to the Birds.

If Doug Pederson learned anything from Andy Reid - and the Eagles had better hope it wasn't only time management - it should be how to select a defensive coordinator as a new head coach. Reid got it right with the Eagles and the Chiefs when he tabbed Jim Johnson and Bob Sutton, respectively, to run his defense. In both cases, he went with veteran coaches who had mild success as NFL coordinators but impressed Reid when his teams faced their defenses. Johnson and Sutton were also beyond the point of being considered future head coaches.

WE'RE HEARING lots of names mentioned now as part of Doug Pederson's potential Eagles staff - the Daily News' Marcus Hayes is reporting that former Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich and current Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo could assume those roles here, and Fox Sports' Alex Marvez said former Eagles safety Tim Hauck will assist Cory Undlin with the defensive backs. Apparently, Pederson would like to pry former Eagles offensive coordinator (and ex-Vikings head coach)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Doug Pederson walked into the locker room as an assistant coach one last time on Saturday. He held a play sheet in his left hand while walking among players just seconds after the Kansas City Chiefs' 27-20 loss to the New England Patriots. Pederson exited 30 minutes later, wheeling a suitcase to the team bus after a bad night but heading toward a bright future. The next time he leaves a football field, it will be as the head coach of the Eagles. Pederson declined comment to reporters from the Philadelphia area in the Gillette Stadium hallway after the loss, which eliminated the Chiefs from the playoffs and will allow the Eagles to hire Pederson as Chip Kelly's replacement this week.
