ESPN bus rolls into Eagles complex; Can Gruden be far behind?

How apropos is this for Andy Reid?
The drama began Saturday morning when the ESPN bus rolled into One NovaCare Way.

ESPN telecasts the Eagles-Panthers Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field.

Jon Gruden is the analyst for ESPN.

A segment of Eagles fans seem to prefer him over Andy Reid, under fire after a 3-7 start with a six-game losing streak.

ESPN play-by-play man Mike Tirico, a friend of Gruden, has an idea how awkward the game could get.

“You don’t know what the atmosphere in the stadium is going to be like,” Tirico said. “Number 1, how many people are going to be there? And then secondly, what’s going to be their reaction if the team plays poorly? The Philadelphia crowd has always made itself part of the story. You kind of just see what happens and react to it.”
