Andy Reid: In or Out?

Benjy MillerContributor IDecember 2, 2008

There's been some talk on whether or not Philadelphia Eagles head coach, Andy Reid, will stay head coach for the 2009 season.

Andy, you've done a great job at head coach, but are you losing your touch? Let's look back a couple seasons.

1999 - Andy Reid named head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. He led them to a 5-11 season and was last in the NFC East. 

2000 - Andy Reid reversed the record of the Eagles, 11-5 and led them to the NFC Divisional game but lost to the New York Giants.

2001 - Andy Reid led the Eagles to another 11-5 season but lost to the St. Louis Rams in the NFC Championship game.

2002 - Andy Reid led the Eagles to a 12-4 season, but ended up losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game.

2003 - Andy Reid kept the same record, 12-4, but lost to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship game.

2004 - Andy Reid led the Eagles to a 13-3 season and went to the Super Bowl. The Eagles lost the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots.

2005 - Andy Reid led the Eagles to their second losing season under him, 6-10.

2006 - Andy Reid reversed last seasons record, 10-6, but lost to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional game.

2007 - Andy Reid led the Eagles to a .500 season, 8-8.

As you can see from this, Andy Reid is falling. He did lead the Eagles to a Super bowl, but I believe his time in Philadelphia is coming to an end. Overall, his record with the Eagles is .620%. In the playoffs, he is .571%.

Those numbers look good, but in the past three years, Andy Reid's Eagles are just above .500%, which may seem good, but in the NFC East, the toughest division in my opinion, is not very good.
