Setting: Deep inside the bowels of Lincoln Financial Field, mid afternoon, October 14, 2008

Andy Reid: All this trade deadline talk is hurting my head. Oh! Hey! I've got an idea. Let's cut Tony Hunt.

Joe Banner: The guy we spent a first-day pick on less than 18 months ago to finally give us a short-yardage back?

AR: Yeah yeah. He's the one.

JB: Um, you realize that would leave us with three undersized backs?

AR: Yeah.

JB: And that you inexplicably keep calling for runs up the middle on 4th and 1 this season? We've already lost two games because of it.

AR: Yeah. Next time we'll just put in a package with two tight ends, a fullback, and a blocking receiver. No way they'll stop us then!

JB: But won't that telegraph the play? Wouldn't the opposing defense just stick eight (or more) men in the box?

AR: Shhh.

JB: [Exasperated Stare]

AR: Besides, I really want to sign Kyle Eckel to backup our defensive tackle playing out of position at fullback.

JB: Who? What? Why?

AR: Shhh.

Mailboy: Fuck you, Coach Reid. Fuck you.
