Through the first three weeks of the regular season, some of the Philadelphia Eagles have seen their stock rise exponentially. Some have seen their stock plummet to an all-time low. And some have taken their shareholders on a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs unlike any heretofore seen in their careers.
In stock terms, if Andy Reid is your broker, you’d better think again about who you’re trusting with the future of investments. He just can’t seem to manage anything. It’s like giving someone a small fortune only to see him squander it and explain his lapses in reasoning with, “I gotta do a better job.”
Reid often gives answers like that. It’s vague and simple, which makes you wonder if he really knows what goes wrong. If he doesn’t, that’s bad. Not just bad, but almost scary. To further validate the idea that Reid might not have a grasp on what’s wrong with his coaching style, he’s predictable.
After all, we see him make the same mistakes time and time again with regard to play-calling and clock management. How in the world can he justify his consistent erroneous decisions when it comes to running the ball, understanding the implications of certain penalties and perhaps most importantly with making personnel decisions both on and off the field?
