The real story of Andy Reid eating three steaks at dinner with Jeff Lurie

The real story of Andy Reid eating three steaks at dinner with Jeff Lurie

Jeffrey Lurie raised some eyebrows recently when he told the tale of an early interview dinner with Andy Reid in which the rotund coach ordered not one, not two, but THREE steaks.

That's some John Candy in the Great Outdoors stuff right there, folks. 

Except Coach Reid doesn't exactly remember it that way.

Reid joined ESPN's Adam Schefter on his podcast and talked about the old steak tale.

"That's what he said? He's too funny," Reid said. "Well, I might have. It might have been for Joe, Jeffrey, and Andy. Other than that, I don't remember ordering three steaks. I'll take credit for it though."

We're going to call a timeout and throw a challenge flag on that one.

While doing an appearance with WIP's Angelo Cataldi and the Morning team Rich Furino, Regional VP of Del Friscos confirmed Reid's triple steak order.

Afterwards, CSNPhilly's Marshall Harris captured Furino retelling the story.

Harris, who learned about the story while on the 94 WIP morning show,  waded through the gristle to get to the heart of the matter. Furino who remembers the order well.

"Basically, when the server comes up and gives their speel, they describe the different cuts of meat, flavor profiles, and textures, he described them to Andy and said, 'Would you like the ribeye, the New York strip, or the filet mignon?' And Andy said, 'Yes.' Like yes to all three. That's kind of how it got started. They put all three in front of him. He put down about 90% of them."

He estimates it's about 50 ounces of steak.

Rumor has it Del Frisco's is talking about the possibility of creating an "Andy Reid Trio" of those three steaks.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
