Tell us you need to do a better job. I dare ya. I double dare ya.
I had a history teacher in high school who gave out grades below "F." He would slap an "O," "R" and sometimes toss hand out a "U." But I don't think he reached the lows of a "Z."
If there was ever an occasion to hand out such a grade, the deplorable coaching performance against the Patriots calls for it.
Let's go back to Reid's decision to forget about LeSean McCoy because he fell in love with the passing game early in the game.
Sure, the aerial attack was clicking. But did anyone think it was going to work for three more quarters?
Was Reid too dense to realize other coaches make adjustments? And doesn't he know a one-dimensional offense with a backup quarterback is kind of easy to defend?
And don't give me one ounce of crap saying, "Well, the Eagles were down big, so they had to pass."
Can it, you Reid apologist.
The Patriots were down by 10 points before Reid could find the running plays on his play chart. But what did Belichick do? That's right, he ran the ball 10 times over the first 17 plays of the game.
The beauty of Belichick's commitment to the run early on was that it lulled Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo to sleep.
The first-year defensive coordinator probably thought the Patriots forgot how to throw the ball. I mean all this guy ever sees is a head coach in Reid who runs one type of offense and fails to mix in variety.
All of a sudden, Belichick added the passing game, and that was all she wrote.
Castillo could come up with an answer if you gave him the question and Internet access an hour in advance.
He is so far in over his head it makes you wonder if he took notice of anything going on during a game outside of the offensive line, which is what he coached prior to getting the reins to the defense.
And the last thing any fan can take right now if for Reid to run his high-calorie intake mouth saying, "I have to do a better job," or some variation of it.
Every time I hear Reid say "I have to do a better job," I think of Pulp Fiction.
Remember the scene where Jules, played by Samuel L. Jackson, loses his cool when Brett continuously says, "What?" He dares Brett to say it one more time. When Brett can't help himself, Jules sort of goes off on him.
Don't you wish there was some way Eagles fans could go off on Reid?
Obviously, we can't get that violent, but I think you get the point.
