It turns out that we have been right for a long time about Andy Reid, and there is no excuse for his continuous blunders that we have pointed out over the years that have been dismissed by national pundits.
There is no excuse for drafting poorly, and there is no excuse for poor clock management. There also aren’t excuses for not utilizing your star running backs enough or making bad coaching decisions.
When everyone outside of the Eagles’ fanbase blamed Reid’s players and assistants, everyone inside the Eagles’ fanbase held the head coach accountable for consistently demonstrating the same level of incompetence in the first place.
Mike Ditka, Chris Berman and Jon Gruden aren’t fooling anyone. And frankly, it’s insulting to an Eagles fan’s intelligence to say that the circus that has become the Philadelphia Eagles isn’t entirely the fault of Andy Reid.
What they do is make things personal and consider Andy Reid the man, who is a great guy for all we know, and not Andy Reid the coach when they talk about his status in Philadelphia and his performance as a head coach.
Reid’s regime has been a failure. It’s painful to say that, for whatever reason. However, it is what it is because he hasn’t won a Super Bowl. Success is found in winning a Super Bowl, and not in beating the Giants, winning the NFC East a few times and losing conference title games.
I actually think Reid seems like a very nice guy who I’d love to have a drink with. However, I don’t want to keep investing some of my free time into football teams that he runs anymore.
Remember, you watch all the games and you follow all of the moves closely. You’re right, probably.
