 Funny story that. Kelce and Mathis couldn't stop you and me getting to Michael Vick, but they can stop fans from putting up a sign.

This is such a hard situation. Since Reid took over at the Eagles, we are 4th in the NFL in regular season wins (1st in NFC). We are third in playoff wins (1st in NFC). 9 playoff season in 12 years. Seven times made the divisional round (Best in the NFL).  5 Conference Championship games (Best in the NFL).

But of course, no Superbowl. And we see this year, the same old problems, botched clock management, bad non coach challenges, going pass crazy at the wrong time. 

I think we are in the same situation the Buccaneers were in. They had 14 losing seasons in a row when they hired Dungy. In six years he took them to the playoffs four times. But he couldn't get them to the Superbowl. The bucs pulled the trigger on the Gruden trade and got that Superbowl win. Reid is obviously an outstanding Coach. The record speaks for itself. But how many chances is Lurie going to give him to get it done?

Andy Reid has a contract with Philadelphia through to the 2013 season.
I think he will definitely be with the team to that point (unless the team completely tanks like Dallas did last year).

His move to fire the DC and replace him with the OL Coach was as dumb as goose shit.
As a direct result, the defense and the OL are both problem areas of the team this year.
Unreal!
Now the team is talking about hiring a 'Defensive Consultant'.
Fecking stupid shit.

He has a good overall record though and a strong relationship with the owner.

He's a great regular season coach.

"Outstanding" coaches win the Super Bowl.

They made some terrible moves on some of the guys they brought in. Signing Vince Young and trading Kolb wAS FOOLISH. Maybe they should of kept Kolb and not Vick as well. Spending a small fortune on that secondary. All the blame shouldn't go on the coach. Players and management have to be responsible too.

The thing is Reid is management. He had final say on everything. Only Belichik has comparable power. Phone Post

Fat Boy out, Bill Cowher in, and Rashad at 185.

That will make 2012 heaven for me!
