Katrina survivor says friends ‘OK’ after Isaac AFP/GETTY IMAGES

With the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina this week, the last thing Jeanne Schmolze wanted to do was be reminded of the devastation that turned her life and thousands of others upside down — but then Tropical Storm Isaac came along with a terrible sense of humor. “It was beyond eerie. I just said ‘How can that be?’ It was just bizarre,” said Schmolze, a Philadelphia native who was driven out of New Orleans and forced to return to her home town. “I feel like I’m reliving it all over again, looking at the sky, looking at the water.”

Quoted

“It’s really hard to look at your life, and it’s covered with mold.” SCHMOLZE

Isaac flooding this week

Like many Katrina transplants, the 67-year-old Schmolze still has friends in New Orleans. For now, she’s breathing a sigh of relief with Isaac having moved on, causing only a sliver of the damage seen in 2005.

“Most of my friends are okay down there. They’re good. They moved uptown or closer to the river,” she said Thursday. “They moved to places that didn’t get water.” Prior to this week, Schmolze said, she had contemplated going back despite objections from her two adult children who live in Philadelphia. But seeing Mother Nature take aim at the Gulf Coast again has made her reconsider. “I was like: ‘Well, I think I’ll just be visiting. ... I like to live above water, but not in it,’” the former musician said, noting

that she really misses New Orleans. Though it’s almost been a decade, Schmolze still gets emotional when she recalls returning to her former home weeks after Katrina, having to wear a hazmat suit and respirator. “It was unbelievable. I don’t even know how to explain it,” she said through tears. “Everything was covered with mold. It stunk. I don’t ever wanna do it again.” SOLOMON D. LEACH sleach@metro.us

Hunting Park residents buck ‘no snitching’ trend One neighbor of notorious drug corner isn’t backing down But he says he needs more help from police Officers say it’s gotten better in area RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Hunting Park resident Darnell Mann still remembers the day last summer when a shootout at his block’s corner store brought a bullet flying into the living room of his home. “The store next door, the whole glass of the front door was shot out and the bullet went into the wall adjacent to my house,” he said. Pockmarks in the aluminum siding and a hole ripped through the blinds are tangible scars that daily remind him of the violence. “I have security bars on my front window, so a bullet ricocheted off that and came into my living room, where my granddaughter plays at, and kind of fell on the floor.” His daughter and granddaughter have since moved out of the neighborhood, fearing for the child’s safety. James Anglin Sr., who has been living on the block for 35 years, pointed to similar welts dotting his car. “All four of my windows were shot out,” he said. He has heard rumors that the same gun was used soon after in a homicide around the corner. Neighbors say the tide of violence largely stems from small band of drug dealers that has been terrorizing the block. “There’s certain individuals

Mann, of Sterner Street at North 27th Street, pointed to bullet holes in the front of his home.

that have been around for the last three years, and the police haven’t locked none of them up,” Mann said. “Neighbors’ cars have been vandalized, some shot up. They’re shooting at each other, but we’re suffering. Kids are afraid to play outside.” He said they use the corner store as a haven when rivals or police come around, hiding their drug stash inside the ATM

slot or under boxes of cookies and shop owners are too afraid to take action. “If they come outside their store and say, ‘Do you mind moving from in front?’ they’ll vandalize their car do something to the store,” he said. “It’s like they got this thing, like, ‘How dare you tell us to move?’” Unlike many residents of high crime areas, Mann is not

afraid to ask for help. But he said his pleas to police and elected officials have gone largely unanswered. “They posted ‘No Loitering’ signs on the corner, and these drug dealers don’t take it seriously because they don’t enforce it,” he said. “They take it as a joke.” ALEX WIGGLESWORTH awigglesworth@metro.us

Block is improving, cops say 39th District Capt. Verdell Johnson is familiar with Mann and his complaints. But he said that, according to crime statistics, the block is actually improving. “Our arrests [are] out the roof in that area,” he said. “But the things [Mann] wants, some of those things are unconstitutional and are not going to happen. Like I told him, I can’t go into any neighborhood, throw people against wall and frisk them. But we’re going to do as much as legally possible to police the neighborhood.” Johnson recently requested floodlights to install on the corner as a deterrent and is set to pick them up from the city today. “They’ll light it up like the Eagles stadium,” he said. He said despite the fact that a personnel shortage in the district this year has forced officers to take on nearly double the work, firearm seizures are up over 40 percent. Police patrol the area on foot 16 hours a day, seven days a week, while most areas only have foot beats five days a week.

New rules, monitoring at Penn State PENNSYLVANIA. Penn State

University has agreed to a new list of procedures put forth by the NCAA and Big Ten Conference earlier this week that puts in place an integrity officer and sets up a program to report or ask about future issues, the Associated Press reported. The 13page agreement also guarantees monitoring for athletic teams and the athletic director, and it creates a new Athletics Integrity Council. The university has already agreed to strict NCAA sanctions that include $60 million in fines, loss of scholarships and a postseason ban for four years. “Penn State is a worldclass institution that prides itself on excellence in academics and athletics,” university president Rodney Erickson said in announcing the agreement, according to the AP. Penn State opens its football season Saturday against Ohio University. METRO

NY clergyman defends Sandusky, blames victims ROBERT NICKELSBERG/GETTY IMAGES

A spokesman for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal said Groeschel was like a “grandfather,” adding: “What can you do?”

A New York clergyman known for his Sunday morning television show expressed sympathy for Jerry Sandusky in a recent interview and took heat for his comments Thursday. In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Brother Benedict Groeschel, 78, said boys without fathers are often the ones to approach their abusers. “Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster — 14, 16, 18 — is the seducer,” Groeschel, who is based in Westchester, N.Y., said. “It’s not so hard to see — a kid looking for a father and didn’t have his own — and they won’t be planning to get into heavyduty sex, but almost romantic: embracing, kissing.”

“Here’s this poor guy — Sandusky — it went on for years. Interesting. Why didn’t anyone say anything?” GROESCHEL

On the subject of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted

on multiple counts of child sex abuse, Groeschel, who is part of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, expressed sympathy. He also said he doesn’t think child sex abusers should be prosecuted for their first offense. “I’m inclined to think, on their first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime,” he said. Later Thursday, a spokesman for the friars Groeschel appears on a weekly show called Groeschel’s comment “shocking,” but said there would be no discipline. Groeschel appears on “Sunday Night Prime” for Catholic network EWTN. CASSANDRA GARRISON

Iran doubles nuke capacity: UN agency BEHROUZ MEHRI/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

Iran has doubled the number of uranium enrichment centrifuges it has in an underground bunker, a U.N. report said on Thursday, showing Tehran continued to develop its nuclear programme despite Western pressure and the threat of an Israeli attack. In the weeks and months when Israeli politicians increased their talk of air strikes on Iran’s nuclear sites, the Islamic Republic was rapidly increasing the enrichment capacity of its Fordow site, buried deep underground to withstand any such hit. The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency also said in its quarterly report on Iran that buildings had been demolished and earth re-

WEEKEND LaBeouf: Goodbye blockbusters,

Review

Shia LaBeouf’s Jack Bondurant pursues the local preacher’s daughter (Mia Wasikowska) in “Lawless.” Don’t come any closer.

Director: Ole Bornedal Cast: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick Rating: PG-13 Grade: –—˜™š Based on an allegedly true story about divorced parents (Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick), their daughter (Natasha Calis) and the evil spirit that takes over her body after she buys a mysterious box at a yard sale, “The Possession” doesn’t feel like a modern horror film. It’s a throwback to a time when horror movies relied on creepy whispers and shadows rather than special effects. Mostly, it works. There’s good atmosphere and some tense moments. But gaping plot holes let some of the air out of the story. METRO

S

hia LaBeouf hasn’t had the smoothest road for his career, earning more acclaim and attention at an early age than perhaps he was ready for. But the outspoken actor is taking things one day at a time. “For me, it’s always the first and last time, every time I’m on set. I didn’t commit less to ‘Indiana Jones’ or less to ‘Transformers.’ It’s just different sensibilities,” he says. “If you asked an 18-yearold what they want to do with their life, and the options are ‘Transformers’ or Lars von Trier, he’s probably shipping out for ‘Transformers.’ If you ask a 26-year-old what he wants to do, ‘Transformers’ or Lars von Trier, he’d probably pick Lars von Trier. So, my sensibilities are changing as I change.” Changing sensibilities aside, LaBeouf says the primary motivator for him in picking a script is whether or not it scares the crap out of him. “If I feel fear right away, that’s a pretty good indicator that I’m shipping out immediately,” he says. “If it scares me and I can’t stop

The film features LaBeouf as Jack Bondurant, a real-life Prohibition-era bootlegger eager to prove himself to his legendary older brother (Tom Hardy). “I’ve carried movies before but had really, really good co-stars in terms of things to look at and divert your attention. Here, I knew there was no escaping any of that,” he says. “Before I really had a fully fleshed-out conversation with [director John] Hillcoat, I think I was nervous about my skill set and where I’d be able to go.

nd while LaBeouf’s career has taken a decidedly art-house turn — working more with directors like Hillcoat and von Trier as opposed to those like Bay and Spielberg — he insists he’s still just following his instincts. “It would be straight bulls--- if I said to you, ‘The money isn’t nice.’ But I never got into it for the money, or signed on to any project for money, ever,” he says. “Money comes with something like ‘Transformers,’ but if they would have said ‘you’ve gotta do it for free,’ I’d be there. ‘Transformers’ was a big deal in my life, aside from the money and all that. For me, Michael Bay, when I was 18, was a big deal. So, I don’t take any of it back.” NED EHRBAR METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

This had that. [I play] a recently divorced guy trying to be a good father and sort of failing miserably with two teenage daughters. So you’ve got a family that’s kind of been troubled at the heart of this. And then of course there’s demons inside people, so there’s that. [Laughs]

But I just think a child getting possessed is ... what is more horrific for a parent than that? And I think that’s something that maybe people can somehow relate to. And what 11-year-old girl isn’t possessed? So many movies about possessions claim to be based on true stories.

I’m a skeptic when it comes to all that paranormal activity and craziness and possession — but in doing the little bit of research that I did for this movie, there’s some scary s— out there. You can see it on the Internet, actual exorcisms and stuff that have happened. I’ve got to wonder how that is there. I mean, it doesn’t look staged to me, and it’s superscary.

Cleaning up the mean streets of NYC

Tom Weston-Jones plays an 1860s detective in BBC America’s ‘Copper’ It’s a dirty job — really dirty

STARTS TODAY!

FOR THEATERS AND SHOWTIMES CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS

New York City in the 1860s was filthy — both physically dirty and morally corrupt, the way the new BBC America drama “Copper” paints it. “I had that dirt [from the set] under my nails for ages after we finished,” admits series star Tom Weston-Jones, who plays Kevin Corcoran, a detective trying to maintain some semblance of order in the gritty Five Points neighborhood. “I loved doing the street scenes because it’s when it really felt like Five Points came alive,” he adds. “You saw all the extras in makeup and completely covered in crap. It was kind of like

you walked into a place that just stank of horses—t every day, but you really liked it for that reason.” “Subconscious dirt,” as Weston-Jones calls the show’s crooked politicians, murderous thieves and informative prostitutes, sticks with viewers just as fixedly. Corcoran is very good at his job — “basically, he hates bullies,” Weston-Jones says — and often solves the case with wit and ingenuity (not to mention brass knuckles, when needed). There is little hope in making these mean streets of New York safe, but Corcoran can try.

BBC AMERICA

Tom Weston-Jones stars in “Copper,” airing Sundays at 10 p.m. on BBC America.

Personal demons While fighting crime, Corcoran is also battling his own issues — like dealing with a missing wife and murdered daughter. “He gets incredibly distracted whenever anything comes up about his wife or daughter,” Weston-Jones says. “In that quest, he kind of loses his mind. But I think people will be intrigued to see how our hero can actually go so far down the rabbit hole.”

“He goes with his gut — he’s a very guttural person rather than being cerebral and almost Hamlet-like,” Weston-Jones says. “He doesn’t sit down and ponder things — he just gets up and f—ing does it.” The actor says he admires that quality, but admits “it can also bite [Corcoran] in the ass, which is just great. He believes in his methods, but he doesn’t think of himself as the superhero. I think he’s fully aware of how destructive he can be.” AMBER RAY

+ Beyonce watch

Will she B or won’t she B? Officially, Beyonce isn’t on the Made in America lineup. But that said, we’d be surprised if the First Lady of Pop Culture didn’t at least make a cameo at her man’s festival. Rumors have been swirling all week that she’s set to hit the stage and give a little face time to Ron Howard, who will be filming the event. “The performance is top secret, but it will be filmed for Jay’s documentary about the event,” a source told The Huffington Post. “It’s going to be epic.”

THIS WEEKEND, PHILLY HAS

GOT IT MADE

As you may have heard, Jay-Z curated this weekend’s multi-genre festival on the Parkway So really, there’s no going wrong here But it doesn’t hurt to have a plan

hen it comes to great things that originate in the U.S., hip-hop and rock top our list. This weekend, over two days, two diverse headliners, Jay-Z and Pearl Jam, top the Made in America festival, a multigenre music extravaganza held right here in Philly. So, who do you need to see? This might get you started:

FRANK MADDOCKS

Prefer to participate from your couch? Spend the long weekend watching live streams of the festival by visiting YouTube and Pandora on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 11 p.m.

B-Roc of New York City’s electronic duo The Knocks is excited to see Jay-Z (who closes Saturday’s show) and D’Angelo (who hits the main stage Saturday at 5 p.m.) perform. “Something we admire about Jay-Z is his consistency,” says B-Roc. “To be doing this for as long as he has and to still be relevant is difficult. He is consistently at the top of his game. That’s something we strive for in our careers. D’Angelo is just the tightest, period. The fact that he can drop off the face of the earth, come back and continue performing as if he never left is amazing. From what we hear, his live show is similar to what the James Brown experience used to be — what else do you need to hear?”

Gary Clark Jr. is a festival pro. ALEX BITTAN

Call him the hardest-working man at Made in America: Singer, songwriter and guitar virtuoso Gary Clark Jr. is taking time out from finessing his upcoming album to play the concert, and it’s far from his first dabble in the summer festival circuit.

Dinner and a debate Who invited a 1969 Vietnam War debate to a NoLibs dinner party? Surprisingly, it’s not so out of place Bruce Walsh on his new show

I

BAILEY MELCHIOR

n 1969, when Noam Chomsky and William F. Buckley sat down to debate U.S. imperialism and the Vietnam War, they did so on the sterile set of Buckley’s weekly PBS show “Firing Line.â€? There were suits, there were clipboards, there were untouched glasses of water. There was also an audience, but if they agreed strongly with Buckley’s rightwing views or Chomsky’s leftist counters, they politely kept it to themselves. Next week, when playwright (and famed, frequent Metro contributor) Bruce Walsh lifts their word-for-word dialogue for his Fringe show, he’ll put the heated conversation where, in some ways, it belonged all along: the middle of a Philadelphia dinner party. “In a domestic relationship — whether it’s a roommate or a spouse or whatever — how you hang the toilet paper, how you do the dishes, we have established ‘right ways’ to do that. And those details have to do with larger things about how we want to live our lives,â€? notes Walsh. “So I was interested in taking this highly intellectual policy debate and putting it in a kitchen, putting it in a place where people have to cook food together. There’s etiquette around that; there’s conflict around that.â€? “Chomsky vs. Buckley, 1969â€? takes place at Walsh’s Northern Liberties residence over appetizers and beer, with Rob Wetherington reciting Chomsky’s parts and Maria MĂśller taking over for Buckley. And while the script is decades

old, audiences might be surprised by how current the conversation seems. “I feel like it speaks to an eternal right-versus-left debate that exists, I think, within all of us, within all of our families,� says Walsh. “It’s a very American debate, talking about the use of power. And we have had a lot of it over the last century or so.�

Sage will taste almost as good in your own backyard.

What we’re drinking this week:

Sage, the new “garden gin� from the artisans/artists/unapologetic boozers at Phillybased brand Art in the Age. What it is: Sage is inspired by

New World plants chronicled and grown by Bernard McMahon, a botanist who set up shop in Philadelphia in 1796. McMahon was a close friend and herb supplier (not that kind — at least, we don’t think) to Thomas Jefferson, who had plenty of gardening space at Monticello. What’s in it: Everything you

killed in your herb planter months ago (rosemary, sage,

thyme), as well as some higher-brow flora (angelica, fennel, sumac) and a weed to keep things real (dandelion). What it tastes like: It’s as herby

and woodsy as it smells. If your garden-variety gin took a little roll around an actual garden, you’d have Sage. Mix it with: No-fuss ingredi-

Nagging question on ‘honey-do’ list RE: “ROMNEY, YOU’VE GOT A HONEY-DO LIST” (METRO, AUG. 30)

Mr. Benjamin must be kidding. Has he decided on what is on a “honey-do” list? And does he actually believe that abortion is a woman’s first priority? Whoa. All women do not think the same, but we do all know that we can think and speak for ourselves. Thank you very much. JANICE QUIRK, VIA E-MAIL

Some people just can’t take a joke When Mitt Romney proclaimed to an audience that he had never been asked to produce his birth certificate, his campaign’s explanation — that it was a joke — rings false. What exactly is the joke here? Is he in some way being ironic and making fun of the folks who perpetu-

ate the birther myth? If so, why were people cheering? And why did he not interrupt their jubilant cries to say, “No, I was just being playfully ironic. Of course I believe President Obama was born in America”? DAVID TERHUNE, VIA E-MAIL

‘Why not us?’ becomes rallying cry for Phillies Rollins clinging to faint postseason hopes Team trails wild-card race by 9.5 games Believers point to 2007 Phils who overtook Mets Key series in Atlanta

J-Roll benched for another lack of hustle

GETTY IMAGES

Charlie Manuel pulled Jimmy Rollins from Thursday’s game prior to the seventh inning in response to two base-running mistakes. Rollins was benched to start the seventh after he failed to run hard on a pop fly. The Phils shortstop dug the hole deeper when he was caught in a rundown a few pitches later. “I have two rules: be on time and hustle,” skipper

Charlie Manuel said. “Hustling is part of it and running balls out is definitely part of it.” Rollins appeared to jog to first base when he hit a routine pop fly at Jonathon Niese, but the Mets pitcher dropped it. Had Rollins been hustling, he could have advanced to second base since no one was covering the bag. Manuel said he benched Rollins due to the pop out, not the rundown. Rollins came under fire Aug. 15 when he lazily trotted down the first-base line.

Rollins is tagged out in the sixth inning Thursday after getting caught in a rundown. The shortstop was benched after he failed to run hard on a routine pop fly that was dropped.

It’s only a matter of time until Jimmy Rollins collects his 2,000th hit. J-Roll is just nine hits away from the magic number. “I’m looking forward to it,” Rollins said. “It’s going to happen. It’s just a matter of when.” There’s something else that Rollins is looking forward to, but it might not happen. The greatest shortstop in the long history of the Phillies believes his squad, despite lengthy odds, can somehow make the playoffs this season. “Things can happen,” Rollins said. “I remember when we did it the first time.” Rollins is referring to 2007 when the Phillies appeared dead in the water. Rollins and his teammates trailed the Mets by seven games with 17 to play. They beat the extreme odds five years ago to take the division, but it may be more

difficult landing the second NL wild card. Aside from the almost double-digit deficit (the Phils trailed by 9 1/2 games), four teams are in the Phillies’ way. “It isn’t going to be easy, but we know we can do it,” Rollins said. “I know we can. This team is back to what it should be [with Chase Utley and Ryan Howard], and it knows how to win. Baseball needs a summer story. The

Pirates were a good one, but now it needs another story. Why not us?” Well, time is running out. If the Phillies have even a glimmer of hope, they need to somehow sweep the Braves in Atlanta this weekend. “We face the Braves quite a bit [six times] before the end of the season,” Rollins said. “We have to figure out a way to beat them. Our backs are against the wall. We’ve had our backs against the wall before.” If a miracle occurs, the Phillies would go to the postseason white hot. “That would be great,” Rollins said. “It would be the opposite of last year. We need to finish very strong so we have a chance. If we make it, who knows what can happen? We have a lot of work to do.” ED CONDRAN

Hamels shows charitable ways at swank Tea Room

MLB. Phillies 3, Mets 2

Phillies’ youngest ace hosts Diamonds and Denim gala Raises money, awareness for AIDS, impoverished kids Local celebrities show support GETTY IMAGES

The swank Crystal Tea Room in the Wanamaker Building was filled with sports star power Monday for the Diamonds and Denim gala to raise money for the Hamels Foundation. The event helped Phillies ace Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi, score proceeds for innercity schools and those suffering from HIV in Malawi, a small country in southeast Africa. “This is taking off,” Hamels said. “What we’re able to get accomplished is great. We’re generating a lot more revenue to give back. In Philadelphia, it’s some of the largest school grants (courtesy of the Hamels Foundation) that have ever been given away.” Choosing to help Malawi

Hamels

was an easy choice for the Hamels family. “Malawi is the most impoverished nation in the world in terms of AIDS or HIV per capita,” Heidi Hamels said. “That’s where we feel that hope needs to be given.”

Those who came to support the cause were able to hang in the same room with a number of Hamels’ teammates, such as Cliff Lee, John Mayberry Jr., Vance Worley and Jimmy Rollins. Chase and Jennifer Utley and Ryan Howard and his

fiancee Krystle Campbell also lent support. Laynce Nix was arm-in-arm with his wife, Brooke, who is a celebrity of sort. She was once a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. “It’s great to be out here,” Nix said. “Great cause.” Speaking of football, Eagles players Todd Herremans and Jon Dorenbos were on hand, along with former Birds quarterback A.J. Feeley. The Flyers’ Scott Hartnell was at the Tea Room after signing a six-year extension. “It’s good to be out here,” Hartnell said. “It’s a good time with good people.” ED CONDRAN

Kendrick, Phillies avoid sweep Kyle Kendrick can do no wrong right now. The Phils righthander allowed just two runs — on a pair of solo homers — on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings to win his fourth straight start. Kendrick (8-9) retired 13 straight batters at one point. The Phillies travel to Atlanta on Friday for a three-game set.

There are 10 games remaining for the Philadelphia Union. Unless something miraculous occurs, there won’t be any games beyond that. In other words, a second straight playoff appearance seems highly unlikely. The Union dropped a heartbreaking 2-1 game to the Columbus Crew Wednesday night at PPL Park. The loss left the Union with an 0-3-2 record in August and 16 points behind the Chicago Fire for the fifth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. “I think we should stop talking about it, personally,� Union interim manager John Hackworth said following Wednesday’s loss. “I think we should concentrate on playing good soccer the rest of the way and see how many points we can get, and see what position we can put ourselves in and improve and look towards the future.� Like many of their games,

US Open dream alive for American males Sock, Fish win second-round matches, delight crowd No American man has won major since 2003 Tournament continues this weekend At 19, Jack Sock could be the next great hope for American men’s tennis. At 30, Mardy Fish is part of the old guard. Both players won their second-round matches Thursday at the U.S. Open, keeping hope alive that at least one American could make a deep run. Sock routed Italian Flavio Cipolla, 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 on Court 17, punctuating the match with an exaggerated fist pump to delight the crowd. Shortly thereafter, the No. 23-seeded Fish completed a comeback from two sets down to beat former world No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko of Russia, 4-6, 6-7 (4), 6-2, 6-1, 6-2, in Arthur Ashe Stadium. “You want to play so well out there,� Fish said in his oncourt interview. “As an American you just love playing on this court. You're getting such good crowd support. It's hard to explain, so you come out a little nervous, a little flat and hopefully that won't happen next time.�

Sock has looked very strong through the ďŹ rst two rounds.

No American has won a major since Andy Roddick took the U.S. Open in 2003.

Is it Super Bowl or bust for Andy Reid? The answer to that will have to wait until after the season. Jeffrey Lurie gave his annual state-of-the-Eagles address Thursday, a few weeks behind schedule. It was originally set for the day Reid’s son, Garrett, died. While the owner wouldn’t hand down a hard ultimatum to Reid, the Birds owner made it perfectly clear that another 8-8 season wouldn’t cut it. “No, it would not,” Lurie said about a repeat of the 2011 campaign. “As I said, 8-8 was unacceptable.” Lurie said that any decision on Reid’s future wouldn’t come until after the 2012 season — even though Reid has two years remaining on his current deal. Lurie added that Reid’s recent tragedy — and his love and respect for him as a person — would not factor into anything. “Andy will always have our sympathy and support, but this is a business,” Lurie said. “You are there to win and win big, and you have to separate the two. All of the analysis will be on Andy Reid the coach. “You won’t hear me talking about this [Reid’s contract]

Lurie will wait until after the season to decide Andy Reid’s future. One thing is certain, though: 8-8 is “unacceptable.”

during the season. There’s just so many things to look at, and I think I always reserve the judgment to look at things after they’ve unfolded.” That decision, whatever it may be, will be Lurie’s to make — and Lurie’s alone. Despite his recent divorce from longtime wife, Christina, Jef-

The 2012 Eagles are poised for a Super Bowl run, right? Mike Vick has stated that on many occasions. But Jeffrey Lurie tackled that question with guarded optimism. Yes, he believes they have the potential. He also believes they are playing catchup with NFC powerhouses like Green Bay and New Orleans. “I do think this team has all the ingredients to get there,” Lurie said. “But, as you know, Green Bay last year, to me, was by far the best team in the NFL — and it wasn’t even close. They were, what, 15-1 in the regular season? Didn’t win a playoff game. It takes one bad game.” METRO
