All of my best Eagle Memories will always be when Andy was at the helm. He saved us from previous coaching follies of Ray Rhodes, Rich Kotite and the like. He brought a professional attitude and had the pulse of the team for several years. You can never disregard all his accomplshments. He literally owned the NFC East for almost a decade. Buddy Ryan and Andy Reid are two coaches that gave us fans something to cheer about. I sure hope that we get better if we let him go but when you lose a coach like him, I just can't see how other available coaches around the league might be better. I will always wish him well. He will always be a class act and was a very good coach for our beloved Eagles.

Ben ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!?!?. This has been the problem with this program for the last 15 yrs. You are praising Reid when you obviously know NOTHING about him. So here are his stats. In his last 8 seasons, he is barely over 500. In his career, he has a 30% winning percentage against teams that have a winning records. That's right a horrendous 30% !!!!!!!!!! In your dissertation, you compare him to the WORST coaches to ever step foot on the field. Why not compare him to the best if he was so great? The headlines: End of and era. Those headlines should read...... END OF AN ERROR !!!!!!

BKK, just shut up. You can skew the stats anyway you like. Reid is not as terrible as you and the haters make him out to be. He missed the playoffs 2 years in a row, even if he did go and lose in the NFCCG again you'd still be calling for his head.

Absolute - BKK is right. Reid's teams are mediocre since 2004 and with the exception of the 2008 team (I think) that went to the NFC Championship game (with a 9-6-1 record that year), his teams haven't done anything in the playoffs. Reid's 30 games over .500 record all happened prior to 2005 and since that point in time, he's had mediocre teams. He continually gets out-coached week in and week out by better coaches. His coaching staff is some of the worst in the league with regards to calling plays in game and making adjustments in game. His game/clock management skills are terrible as well. This team is not progressing and with what they have on this team, Reid and his coaching staff can't figure out how to use what they have to maximize potential and get them to play better. Sorry, but some of us are tired of hearing "it's my job to get this thing corrected, I take full responsibility, the problems are fixable, etc, etc, etc" Then fix it already if it's fixable! Time for a change.
