Friday's Delaware County Daily Times followed up on an earlier Inquirer story regarding the high number of vacancies and members with expired terms on SEPTA's Citizens Advisory Committee. Two of the members listed as serving beyond their allotted terms are from Delaware County.


Forget about the playoffs. After the team's poor performance against Dallas, I would start thinking about who's going to replace Andy Reid next season. Reid's crappy play calling has apparently exposed the fact that Donovan McNabb is one of the most inaccurate passers in the NFL, the "talent" at the skill positions (running back and wide reciever) is thin, and the defense has been mailing it in the past few weeks. Don't even get me started on how bad the kick return coverage teams have been in the last two games, especially late in the game. Oh, and how about that onside kick to start the game? How stupid was that?

To make matter worse, they lost to the hated Cowgirls, which is almost a criminal offense in Iggles Nation. Hell, if the Iggles lose to the Cowgirls at "The New $512 million, Partially Taxpayer Subsidized License for Lurie and Banner to Gouge Prices at 11 St and Pattison Av", then Reid ought to be fired on the spot. It's bad enough when the Iggles lose, but losing to the Cowgirls is even worse than death (well, almost).

By the way, those away game parties that the Iggles sponsor are fairly dull. The only real excitement at today's Iggles Away Game Party at Casey's in Drexel Hill was a bar fight - in which 8 Upper Darby police cars arrived; they seem to be used to that place, there always seems to be some mention every month or so of fights there in the Daily Times police blotter - that sent two to the hospital and a third man to jail. Nice.

I know that last item has nothing to do with SEPTA, but I am not in a good mood right now...
