When we posted Andy Reid's final record breakdown as Eagles head coach Wednesday, we made it a point to highlight his record vs. playoff teams (19-24) and teams that would finish over .500 (25-25).

A handful of commenters, emailers and twitter followers asked us to break it down by season and also to show hows those records compared to the rest of the league. It turns out ... not so bad.

Since 1999, the Eagles have the 12th-best record against eventual playoff teams. But their record against over .500 teams is the fifth best since 1999.

Here are those records for all NFL teams since 1999, and below that the Birds' year-by-year breakdown in each category:

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
