David Sims played better than Nate Allen when he played against the Saints. As a coach, you lose credibility with your players when you continue to play guys who are not getting it done just because they make more money. Bad play necessitates that players get put on the bench. With this eagles team you have players who have never won anything for this coach being treated like they have. Coach Reid, has lost his way, Ike Reese said it best a few days ago when he said, "they are not us", meaning Coach Reid, these are not the eagles of your early HC years, these guys are not guys you drafted or went to NFC Championship games with year after year these are who couldn't play for other teams and you thought you could bring them on this team and get the most out of them. These guys have failed and players like Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman have adapted this same type of attitude. Whenever Coach Reid goes in front of the media and defends these guys it gives the impression that mediocrity is acceptable. Sometimes what worked for you in the past doesn't work in the present and adjusting is something that Coach Reid doesn't do well. I still wish him the best he gave us real good memories over his coaching tenure.
