Battle Of The [Potentially] Unemployed: Andy Reid Vs. Rex Ryan

Andy Reid and Rex Ryan have found themselves sitting in the hot seat due to their teams’ lackluster performances thusfar (3-8 & 4-7, respectively). By regular season’s end, these head coaches could be looking for a new place to exercise their talents. Let’s see who has the edge in how we think they’d respond to popular interview questions. They may even have to look outside the NFL for a new job opportunity…

Cover Letter
My name is Andrew Walter Reid, but I like to go by Andy because it rhymes with candy and I am a sucker for sweets! I am about to lose my job and instead of stepping down and wallowing in my sorrow, I want to fly like an eagle into the vast landscape of alternate careers. Currently, I am considering Catering and Security Guard, but I am not close minded!
Winner Times are tough. Life throws some challenge flags once in a while and I'm out of time outs. I am looking for a new job in the New York metro area with the start date of January 1st. I'm an equal opportunity employee, so I'll work with ladies or gentlemen. I'm happily married, but I'll foot to foot with a hard working woman to get the job done. I also have a lot of experience with the handsome crowd, so men are no issue. I am not competitive--in fact, I try to keep the playing field level at all times. Overall, I think that I am a perfect candidate to represent New York in all it's glory and I can't wait to hear from you!
Work Experience
I love to work hard and strive to be a champion. Because of that, I am successful, but not too successful. I like to put in the work to stay out of the dog house. I think it's important to have a good work ethic and understand how to play with others. I am a team leader for sure.
Winner At my previous job, we were open to bringing in inspirational team players who didn't even play just to keep our morale up. It was great. I have many qualities fit for a great job at your company too. I own my own laptop computer, speak spanglish, have access to learning how to use Microsoft Word, and have many sweatervests to boot! I don't know if you saw it, but I was also in the movie "That's My Boy" and it was so funny, I played a Patriots fan! So funny.
Hobbies & Extra Curriculars
Winner I am a music lover. If I had to pick one, I'd say my theme song would be "I am the Walrus" by The Beatles. It's inspirational and I've shaped my whole self around it. Did I mention I'm a year-round Movember supporter.
I love to learn from my coworkers. I have found the Bible and Broadway and have fallen in love with them both. I even started eating better!

We'll Just Call it a Tie

Atlanta Falcons v Philadelphia Eagles New York Jets v Seattle Seahawks

It's not really a tie. They both lose. Good luck, gentlemen.

    Tale Of The Tape: Arizona Cardinals At San Francisco 49ers

    It’s a good thing the Cardinals have their playoff berth locked up, because the offense has lost its drive after losing quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton to injuries.

    Tale Of The Tape: Oakland Raiders At Denver Broncos

    The Raiders have certainly shown some life in the second half of the season, and while it most likely won’t be enough to help Tony Sparano shed the interim label and become the full-time head coach, he does deserve credit for not letting this team give up.

    Tale Of The Tape: St. Louis Rams At Seattle Seahawks

    The Rams offense functioned at a much higher level in their Week 16 loss to the Giants with Shaun Hill at quarterback, and he is coming off a confidence-boosting 24-of-32 game for 290 yards with 2 TDs and 1 interception.
