Yes, it's clear that Reid has a gift of getting more out of an average player. He's proven, time and time again, that he can motivate and position players to far exceed anyone's expectations.
However, as mentioned previously, Reid has been gifted with an immense amount of talent.
Yet the Eagles are sputtering.
Is it possible that Reid can't relate to a superstar player?
I'm sure McNabb and Westbrook would disagree.
Reid's press conferences are famous for his broken record statement, "I have to put players in better position to succeed."
If this is the case, he needs to do a better job of exploiting the talents bestowed upon his beloved Birds.
For instance, Shady McCoy should be touching the ball a minimum of 25 times per game. It goes without saying.
If it's Reid's concern for McCoy's health and well-being that is curbing his touches, then the Eagles should use Ronnie Brown more frequently.
Albeit, after an intense lecture, in no uncertain terms, that he's never to pitch the ball again, not while he's wearing the green and white.
D-Jax should be returning 100% of the punts. He should also be touching the ball as frequently as possible, whether they be screen passes, end-arounds or deep routes.
I get that he's a prima donna and wants to get paid.
I also get that speed is the only physical gift with which he's been blessed.
He will not be running through anyone, and that includes Jacksonville kicker Josh Scobee. He has to be careful.
The Eagles would be wise to protect him. However, if he wants to get paid like an elite receiver, he better darn well play like one and produce like one.
Simply put, this season he hasn't.
I'd be hard pressed to blame Andy Reid for that.
Jeremy Maclin is big enough to handle the middle of the field and fast enough to stretch it: a rare combination indeed.
On defense, Asomugha is considered by most to be the league's best shutdown corner not named Darrelle Revis.
Steal a page from Rex Ryan's Jets and put him out there on Asomugha Island.
He did a fine job covering Larry Fitzgerald during their recent clash with the Arizona Cardinals, however, the stinging question is: Why was he not locked up with Fitzgerald the entire game?
After all, he was a piece to the puzzle that was supposed to vault the Eagles over the top, so they could win their first ever Super Bowl.
