There is no question that Andy Reid has done a great deal for the Philadelphia Eagles franchise. He's turned a poorly-run, losing organization into a perennial contender. He's given the City of Brotherly Love reason to believe that every year could be their year.
But sometimes even that is not enough. The Philadelphia Eagles look lost. They've blown fourth-quarter leads in each of the past two games, they're playing schemes that do not suit their players, and their franchise QB is being exposed far too often.
In short: Andy Reid is being out-coached in every sense of the word. Mike Smith and Tom Coughlin (with all due respect) are not elite strategists or legendary motivators. Neither (arguably) is considered a top 5 or top 10 coach in the NFL. Yet both Coughlin and Smith managed to out-motivate, out-think and out-maneuver Andy Reid.
For Philadelphia fans, this isn't the first time their team has been beaten due to poor coaching. But one thing is becoming clear: Andy Reid might not have what it takes to win a Super Bowl.
Sometimes a change is needed. Here are four out-of-work coaches that could come in and lead the Eagles to the promised land.
