He came in with a vision and demands and that fiery red hair and, well, Andy Reid was going to do it his way, wasn't he? Fourteen years later, we remember the good times ...

All this talk about Howie being fired with AR etc.....I don't know what to make of Howie yet because AR had the final say in on player sersonal matter pretty much he was the GM on this team while Howie just carried a title that meant nothing.
How much of these moves the last 2-3yrs was Howie moves and which are AR moves???? I don't know about firing Howie but getting a more exp. GM would be nice and let Howie learn under him in a more reduced role something like that

I appreciated the run with Big Red, but it is obviously time to move on. Good luck Andy! Let the great "next coach speculation period" begin!!!

Right now...AR is the most successful HC in our franchise history. Too bad he could not close the deal because a statue would be outside the LFF.

14 years is a very very good run as a head coach for the same team. Unfortunately this chapter ends on a negative note. I am sure that there will be opportunities elsewhere. It could be a good opportunity for Andy to take a break recharge and reflect for 1 year and then start again.

We will see.

AR thank you for all the wonderful seasons of winning and bringing this proud franchise back into relevance. May good fortune follow you where ever you go. Now, BRING ON 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO EAGLES!

Lovie smith or Romeo Crennel for DC would be a good start. Maybe even Monte Kiffin!

What about Shurmur for OC? No Chip Kelly, PLEASE!

Coach Reid, we wish you the best... Thank you for 14 years of dedication to the Eagles organization... Unfortunately a fresh start is required for both sides... But today is a celebration of your accomplishments, so I don't even wanna think about the next Coach... Today is about celebrating "Our Coach"... We had some great times, great signature wins (44-6, Miracle at the Meadowlands pt. II, Monday night shellacking of the Skins), and on & on... Good Times!!...

I think the Eagles do have a lot of pieces in place. It's the HC job to put those pieces together to make them work as a team and AR failed at that for the past several seasons. His best move was hiring Jim Johnson as DC and after JJ left, it was all downhill from there .Failing to hire a top notch DC to replace JJ was ARs biggest failure. The Eagles never did have a dynamic offense and needed a shutdown D to win, so let's hope the next HC will find a great DC.
