EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - At 5:01 p.m. on Sunday, Andy Reid walked through the double doors of the visitors' locker room at MetLife Stadium. He greeted his wife and daughter. Together, the three sat on a golf cart and waited to be taken to the team bus. From there, Reid returned to South Philadelphia and prepared for his exit as coach of the Eagles. One hour earlier, Reid experienced the worst loss of the worst season in his 14 years as coach. The New York Giants dominated the Eagles, 42-7, and Reid's team finished 4-12, the poorest record of his career.

Philadelphia has been selected as the host city for the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, according to a source with direct knowledge of the decision. Lincoln Financial Field beat out Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, Atlanta's Georgia Dome and most notably East Rutherford, N.J.'s MetLife Stadium. The home of the NFL's New York Giants and Jets had been the overwhelming favorite to host the title game of the signature tournament for North and Central Americans national teams. But officials in Philadelphia worked extremely hard to snatch the big game out of the Meadowlands' grasp.

While at Council Rock South High, Justin Pugh received little attention from Division I-A football coaches. In fact, Syracuse was the only top-level program to offer him a scholarship. Now, after a rock-solid career with the Orangemen, Pugh, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound left tackle from Holland, Bucks County, is bound for the NFL. On Thursday night, he was selected with the No. 19 overall pick in the draft by the New York Giants. Pugh was waiting at home for a telephone call, which came around 10:15 p.m. "It was surreal," Pugh said.

The Los Angeles Clippers, it turns out, have more in common with the Phillies than a history that is notable for failure. The lifetime ban the NBA handed down to Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Tuesday, just days after his racist comments became public, might have been newsworthy but it was hardly unique. Two Phillies owners suffered the same fate. Horace Fogel was exiled from baseball in 1912, and 31 years later, so was William D. Cox. Both apparently were as incompetent as Sterling, though neither had nearly as much money.

In his one season as an assistant with the New York Giants, Temple head coach Matt Rhule found Eli Manning to be a "consummate professional. " The Giants quarterback never took anything for granted, Rhule said. And it's something the second-year head coach wants ingrained in Owls quarterback P.J. Walker. Walker will get his chance to learn from Eli and the rest of the Manning family, as he accepted an invitation to the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana in July. The sophomore will be one of about 40 college quarterbacks who will serve as counselors to more than 1,000 youth campers.

EVEN AFTER A sweet road overtime victory, the oddsmakers apparently were not overly impressed by the New York Giants, and opened the New England Patriots as a 3-point favorite in Super Bowl XLVI. We have even seen a couple of 4s at the Wynn sportsbook and the Mirage. I wouldn't expect the line to grow any higher than 4 over the next 2 weeks. My inkling would be that the betting evens out and the line ends up being right at 3 by the time they tee it up. So, if you are looking to squeeze the extra digit and the Giants and you can find a 4, you might want to book that sooner than later, since it may not be there come Super Bowl weekend.

THE EAGLES still have tickets left for most of their regular-season home games. As of Monday morning, only the October game against the Dallas Cowboys was completely sold out. In past years, for at least a decade, the Eagles have sold out in a single day. Not this year. Not even close. A dozen weeks after single-game tickets went on sale, fans have snapped up all the seats for only the games against two archrivals, the Dallas Cowboys (Oct. 20) and the New York Giants (Oct. 27)

Brandon Boykin majored in journalism at Georgia. He knows a good story. But the Eagles cornerback has grown tired of the running narrative that surrounds his quest to become a starter in the NFL. He's talented and athletic, arguably the best slot corner in the NFL. But he's on the shorter side, or at least according to parameters set by the Eagles, and it probably has made cracking the starting lineup a difficult task as Boykin enters his fourth season....

The best that can be said about the free-agent contracts Chip Kelly handed out this offseason is that he wants to win now. The Eagles coach identified players he wanted for his systems and made bold moves to acquire them over the last month. But that often meant overpaying when the market suggested he could have gotten free agents such as Byron Maxwell and DeMarco Murray for less. Kelly paid Maxwell more than $2 million more a year than any other team was willing to pay for the cornerback.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Eagles finally made that crucial, final-minutes play yesterday. They made it at least a couple of weeks too late to save their season, and the two guys responsible - Trent Cole with the pressure on Eli Manning, Nate Allen with the pick and 40-yard return of Manning's floater, as the clock ticked down inside 3 minutes left - might have made it too late to save their Eagles careers. But they did make it, and there was music in the MetLife Stadium visitors' locker room, and the pain from the Eagles having missed the playoffs at 10-6, following their 34-26, season-ending victory over Manning's New York Giants, seemed a little less wrenching, at least for a few hours.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Eagles walked off the MetLife Stadium field on Sunday as winners for the 10th and final time this season. The harsh reality that it was their last game overshadowed the accomplishment. The 34-26 victory over the New York Giants allowed the Eagles to finish 10-6 for the second straight season under coach Chip Kelly, and made them the best of any non-playoff team. The players could head back down the Jersey Turnpike with the sweet feelings of victory, because those are precious in the NFL. But it does not eradicate the bitterness of an unfulfilled December.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Though Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher had been a target of opposing offenses and fans, his absence Sunday forced the Eagles into personnel changes on defense. The results were mixed. The secondary surrendered 429 passing yards and a touchdown, but the Eagles were able to defeat the New York Giants, 34-26, in Sunday's season finale at MetLife Stadium. Fletcher, who injured his hip in practice, was replaced on the outside by Nolan Carroll, who was making his first start for the Eagles after earning 26 starts during the previous four years for the Miami Dolphins.

BEFORE HE OPTED to return for his senior season at USC, there was a time when Matt Barkley was on track to perhaps become a top-10 pick in the NFL draft. Nearly 3 years later, the Eagles' 2013 fourth-round draft pick has not started an NFL game. The pro tape on him consists of only preseason games and four appearances either in mopup duty or when he was thrust into action last season following in-game injuries to the starter. So with the 9-6 Eagles eliminated from the playoffs and uncertainty regarding all three quarterback spots on the team's depth chart for 2015, there's a school of thought that perhaps you'd want to see what you have in the seldom-used Barkley.

BRADLEY FLETCHER, who still looked haunted yesterday, said he didn't know whether he will start in Sunday's meaningless season finale against the New York Giants. Practice was "pretty much the same," said the Eagles' much-vilified cornerback, who added: "I'll know by the end of the week. " That was what defensive coordinator Bill Davis had told reporters earlier yesterday, that he would decide by the end of the week whether to start Fletcher for the 16th time this season, or go with either Nolan Carroll or Brandon Boykin.

MARK SANCHEZ could not have created a better opportunity had he written the script himself. Sanchez was on the scrap heap, coming off an injury that spelled the end of his Jets career and put his NFL future in doubt. He signed on as a backup quarterback with the Eagles looking to revive his career. When starter Nick Foles was sidelined with a broken collarbone, Sanchez took over a team that was 6-2 and near the top of the pack of teams fighting for a spot in the NFC playoffs.
