Catching up with Dick Vermeil


When the Eagles' season ended in Dallas on Jan. 9, the team instantly faced several questions.

Some of those will be answered when free agency begins.

More will be answered by the time April's draft rolls around.

And August in Lehigh will be here before we know it.

But in the mean time, Eagles fans are left with a void from no more football on Sundays.

We here at Sports wanted to help you satisfy your football fix. To do so, we caught up with former Birds coach Dick Vermeil.

Vermeil filled us in on how he spends his time now that he's no longer on the sidelines. And he offered his take on the current state of the franchise, including Andy Reid's tenure, Donovan McNabb's future and the problems that face the NFL.

We hope you enjoy the three-part video series with Sports' Matt Mullin.
