Anyone with a little head coaching experience and the feeling they could right a sinking ship may want to answer a recent Craigslist ad for a Philadelphia Eagles vacancy. 

Of course, there is no such vacancy, and the ad is much more wishful thinking by a fan than anything. 

A tip of the hat to Hot Clicks who posted a link to this hilarious Craigslist ad with the following headline, "Head Coach-Philadelphia Eagles-$1,000,000"

Andy Reid, if you are reading this, please don't fret. We don't think owner Jeffrey Lurie would actually take out an Internet ad to fill a coaching spot. 

Still, this is not exactly all that far from reality. 

You have to think Reid has at least one mustache whisker out the door after a horrible start to the NFL season. 

After beginning 2-0, the Eagles have stumbled to an awful 3-5 mark, making the playoffs a fairly tenuous proposition. 

Their latest effort saw them lose to the embattled New Orleans Saints, a team that managed to sack Michael Vick seven times in the game. 

So what do you need to coach this team? Here is what the faux job opening mandates: 

Seeking a new head coach for our football team. In addition to collegiate and/or NFL coaching experience (10+ years), ideal candidates will have the following skills:

Ability to communicate effectively with management, coaching staff and players
Ability to delegate offensive, defensive and special teams responsibilities
Good clock management skills
Red zone efficiency
Leadership by example
Ability to motivate players
Ability to win games


The fans have given up on Andy Reid, largely because they feel the man has given up on the team. 

If you want a perfect image to take with you that typifies what Eagles fans feel, consider this GIF Deadspin ran with Tuesday

The headline was a spot on: "Andy Reid Watching Mike Vick Get Sacked Seven Times Looks Like a Bullfrog Doing Nothing."

Bullfrog, walrus, whatever the animal; it's clear Andy Reid is in trouble.
