Ed Snider, Paul Holmgren and Ed Stefanski were having lunch.

Here is a secret transcript of the conversation.

Snider: How could you let that happen?

Stefanski: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: How can you collapse like that in the last game?

Holmgren: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: It's Game 6, the crowd's revved up, and you completely fall apart?

Stefanski: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: Where's the heart?

Holmgren: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: Where's the young leadership you always talk about?

Stefanski: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: And how does a coach let that happen?

Holmgren: Which one of us are you talking to?

Snider: I've never seen anything like this. Now what am I supposed to do?

Silence.

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest. Rich has blogged the postseasons of the Flyers and Eagles. E-mail Rich at hofmanr@phillynews.com Reach Rich at hofmanr@phillynews.com.
