Similar to Rex Ryan, I have a hard time believing the Eagles will fire Andy Reid. Granted, Reid has been there a lot longer, as he is entering his 13th season in Philadelphia. He's helped bring the Eagles franchise to where it is today, guiding the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance, five NFC championship games, and six division titles.
With the tragic passing of his oldest son Garrett Reid, Michael Vick has stated that this upcoming season will be dedicated to him. It's going to be an emotional season for the Eagles.
For many years now, Eagles fans have been waiting for Andy Reid to be fired. With just a 10-9 playoff record, Reid's teams have come up short again and again in the postseason. He always has the Eagles competitive, but Eagles fans want more: a Lombardi Trophy.
Thanks to Vince Young proclaiming the Eagles a "Dream Team" a season ago, it was Super Bowl or bust in Philadelphia. The Eagles fell short, finishing 8-8, winning their last four games. Now, they need to carry that into 2012.
The Eagles success lies on the shoulders and health of Michael Vick. It's no secret that he's had some trouble staying on the field.
I expect the Eagles to play inspired football this season. In a tough NFC East, the division crown won't be easy. They have more than enough to win it.
Final Verdict: The Eagles don't make the Super Bowl, but return to the playoffs, keeping Andy Reid safe.
