Other than expressing the utmost confidence in Howie Roseman's ability as general manager (more to come on that somewhere down the road), Jeffrey Lurie didn't express much of note at his Andy Reid Relief Concert. The owner rationalized the decision to stick with Reid these last few years, but ultimately seemed to acknowledge it was a mistake, all while propping up the departed as the greatest coach in franchise history.
But while speaking to what the fans endured in 2012 in particular, Lurie used some strong words, admitting he was "embarrassed" by the team's record. He stopped about one step shy of outright apologizing for the product that the Philadelphia Eagles put out on the field this year.

About NBC internships
Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."
He also sent a message with his fresh new look.
Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.
No, not Andrew Bynum.
We're talking about Allen Iverson.
"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."
Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”
Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?
"i just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."
"I think it looks okay."
