Twelve seasons. Nine postseason appearances. Six division titles. Five conference championship game appearances. And one Super Bowl appearance.
And I'm suggesting that the Eagles get rid of the guy?
It's simple, really. Just call it the Donovan McNabb Rule.
Reid would never admit it because he's a classy guy. But McNabb got the boot because of moments like the Ronde Barber interception and the Rodney Harrison interception.
I just find Reid's decision to get rid of McNabb so ironic because, well, Andy Reid is the exact same way.
He's a very good coach. He'll get you that postseason appearance almost every year, usually by division title.
He'll win you one or two playoff games (sometimes). But he isn't going to win a Super Bowl.
I thought that things might be different when Kolb was announced as the quarterback for the 2010 season. Then the Kolb era never happened because of the Vick era.
And now the Vick era, season one, has ended.
No, this wasn't the last year in Eagles' history. The team could win a Super Bowl.
Andy Reid could one day win a Super Bowl. Troy Aikman has announced that he thinks Reid will.
But I don't.
There reaches a point where losing is a pattern. It's the result of poor coaching decisions.
I can't tell you the last time Andy Reid has made a great in-game coaching decision.
With all due respect to the 12-year head coach, he is absolutely brutal with in-game decisions. I can't remember one because he's never made one.
Sooner or later, the Eagles will need a coaching decision to push them over the top. And Reid can't do it. He's proven year in and year out, as he's been out-coached in just about every single postseason loss.
He's proven that he's not going to call a balanced run-pass ratio. He just won't do it.
LeSean McCoy averaged 5.2 yards per run this season, and for his efforts, the Eagles rewarded him with 12 carries during the biggest game of the season.
How many times did we say it all week? RUN THE FOOTBALL!
It's purely idiotic to me how a head coach in the National Football League can fail year in and year out, and never seem to learn from his mistakes.
Now do I actually think the Eagles should get rid of the guy?
No. Not as of now. I think this team is too close to being an elite team to mess up anything, and changing head coaches would severely mess things up.
But I'm frustrated, annoyed, angry, hurt and flat-out pissed off.
And when a team loses, the coach will always receive a great deal of the blame.
Especially a guy like Andy Reid, who always plays a major role in the Eagles' postseason defeats.
