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.

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.

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," 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.

It is an interesting quirk of fate that Doug Pederson begins his tenure as Eagles head coach with the team holding the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft, exactly as was the case when Andy Reid took over 17 years ago. The histories of Pederson and Reid have been so intertwined that the obvious comparison as the Eagles prepare to select quarterback Carson Wentz on Thursday is to equate that with Reid's choice of Donovan McNabb in 1999. Re-creating Reid's tenure here, down to the opening draft pick of that era, isn't the worst thing to do. The man went to the playoffs in nine of his 14 seasons with the Eagles, won 130 regular-season and 10 postseason games, and was overseer of the longest sustained period of success in franchise history.

THE LAST TIME the Wide 9 was seen in these parts, it was helping grease the skids for Andy Reid's firing and being excoriated as a bad-awful defensive alignment that seemingly sacrificed everything else for the sake of sacks. The Wide 9, a deployment in which the defensive ends line up near the mezzanine-level concession stands so they can burn rubber around the offensive tackles and beat them to the quarterback, was brought to the Eagles in 2011 by Jim Washburn, who was hired as the team's defensive line coach shortly after Reid came up with the really, really dumb idea to make his longtime offensive line coach, Juan Castillo, his new defensive coordinator.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - It was clear from Doug Pederson's 69-minute session with reporters at the NFL meetings that Pederson will leave his defense in the hands of coordinator Jim Schwartz, won't try to get involved with how, say, Schwartz deploys his safeties. "I wanted to find that guy I could trust, that head coach of defense," said Pederson, who has gotten high marks around the league for hiring Schwartz, the former Lions head coach. "He's a guy that you can kind of turn the keys over to and say, 'This is your deal.' " But it was also clear that Pederson chose Schwartz for a specific reason, and it wasn't just because he has produced highly ranked defenses in previous NFL stops.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Andy Reid maintained strong relationships with the Eagles' decision makers after his dismissal. So when they asked him about Doug Pederson, Reid was ready with an endorsement. "I thought Doug was ready to be a head coach," Reid said Tuesday on a conference call. "He'd kind of done everything he could do here. I hated losing him because of our relationship, but I'm very happy and proud of him for the opportunity he has to lead the Birds there. " Pederson was a coordinator for only three seasons, but Reid thought he was exposed to enough to prepare him for a promotion.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Jeffrey Lurie and Andy Reid both talked about Doug Pederson yesterday, and both mentioned how much they like the staff the Eagles' first-year coach has assembled. "We don't change coaches very often, but the transition with Doug has been smooth, outstanding," said Lurie, the Eagles' chairman. "Great communication, high energy. The staff he put together, very excited about. It's important to hire really good coordinators when you're a first-time head coach. That was a big key with Andy, with (special-teams coordinator)

When Chase Daniel arrived at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday, his first full day as the Eagles' backup quarterback, his new head coach and old friend Doug Pederson took him on a tour of the facility. The tour lasted 45 minutes, because when Daniel and Pederson get to talking about football or their families or pretty much anything, they find it hard to stop. "We have a very special relationship," Daniel said. That relationship developed over their three years together with the Kansas City Chiefs - Pederson as the offensive coordinator under Andy Reid, Daniel as the No. 2 quarterback behind Alex Smith.

The Kansas City Chiefs were docked two draft picks and fined by the NFL for violating the league's anti-tampering policy because of "improper contact" with Jeremy Maclin when the wide receiver left the Eagles for Kansas City last offseason. The Chiefs lost a 2016 third-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick and were fined $250,000. Andy Reid, the former Eagles coach who now coaches the Chiefs, was fined $75,000. General manager John Dorsey was fined $25,000. The league said the Chiefs had "direct communications" with Maclin during the open negotiating period.

INDIANAPOLIS - Will Fuller will run the 40-yard dash at the combine on Saturday, when the Notre Dame receiver and Roman Catholic alum is expected to have one of the draft's best times. "I'm shooting for a mid-4.3, something around a 4.35 would be real good for me, I believe," Fuller said. Fuller is considered perhaps the best deep threat in the draft, but he also wants to prove his route-running and catching ability during the position drills. "That's a big thing that I've been working on is attacking the ball and not letting it eat me up," Fuller said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Andy Reid has been the closest thing to a mentor for Doug Pederson, but Pederson may not have ever met the former Eagles coach had it not been for Mike Holmgren. In 1996, Holmgren took a chance on the journeyman quarterback. He signed Pederson, who was named the Eagles' new coach last month, several weeks into the season to be the Packers' third-string quarterback. Pederson never took a snap that season playing behind Brett Favre and Jim McMahon, but he wound up a champion when Green Bay won the Super Bowl.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott was fired by Andy Reid on the Tuesday after the end of the Eagles' 2010 season. The year ended with a playoff loss in January. Almost no one knew for days besides the two men. Reid wanted to keep it a secret. He wanted McDermott to have another job before the firing became public. It didn't quite work out that way. The news leaked four days later, but McDermott, in the interim, had already interviewed with the Broncos and Panthers. The former Eagles coach wanted to protect the then-36-year-old defensive coordinator.
