The Delaware Valley, the Philadelphia Eagles fanbase and Andy Reid himself are on the eve of what will probably be the head coach’s penultimate game at the helm of the Eagles franchise, which happens to be his last home game, against the Washington Redskins.
This begs the question, “Will fans boo Andy Reid for his not bringing a Lombardi Trophy to the City of Brotherly Love, or will they cheer Reid for his efforts over the last 14 years?”
No matter what the answer to that question may be, the biggest factor that goes into its answer depends on how much consideration is given to Reid’s most notorious blunders as the team’s head coach. After all, everyone knows about Reid’s success. In fact, you can count his biggest achievements on six fingers, with each representing an NFC East title—only two of which have come since 2006.
On the other hand, Reid has made several costly blunders and perpetuated the same kinds of misjudgments repeatedly, so much so that one would need a lot of fingers and a lot of time to count them all.
That said, what are the biggest mistakes Reid has made during his time as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles?
