What happens if A. Reid stays as HC.

What happens if A. Reid stays as HC. 


This is just a senario, but if by chance, owner jeff lurie decides to keep Andy Reid and keep him to finish out his contrct in 2013? Suppose the team makes moves all around, front office, coaches, players, and still keep him as head coach?
  Will Eagles fans still buy single game, and season tickets?? Or will the fans make a statement buy showing their feelings with the owners decison.

Whole new coaching staff besides Reid. That's what it will take....

OC - someone who knows the value of RB's and uses them the right way.

DC - someone who will know when to blitz and when to play zone D.

My prediction.   Reid promoted to President of Football Ops.    Marty stays as OC to develop Foles and keep him in the same system.   New HC.  New DC.

Head Coach Brad Childress anyone eek

It was surprisingly easy to root against this team last year and now this year.  Keeping Andy next year will make it even easier to root against them from day one next year.  I hope they lose every game by 20 the rest of the year if that's what it takes to ensure Andy is not back in ANY fashion.

I don't want him involved in personnel decisons any more than I want him picking assistant coaches or calling plays.  Just look at how terribad the 2010 and 2011 drafts were, and what a clusterfrack the coaching staff has been since JJ died...

Andy as HC,

Rex Ryan as DC (have to admit, he is a great DC)

Childress back as OC. I could live with that. ...

I dont think Childress would make a lateral move.

If Reid stays, its important to get a DC and OC who both are very good and with some personality, also Reid need to let the coordinators run the show and lead from behind. But as everyone else I lost comfident in Reid, he need to start over in another place, best for him and best for the Eagles.




Go Eagles

I don't see any scenario in which Reid returns, but if he did I'd agree that he would need to find new coordinators on both sides of the ball, and let them do their thing (the way he did with JJ).

Secondly, you'd need some sort of shakeup in the front office as well. Jury is out on the 2012 draft, but the drafts in 2010 and 2011 were hideous and there needs to be some answering for that.  If you fire Andy Reid, and keep Roseman, which seems to be most likely scenario, you are indirectly scapegoating Reid for some of the personnel mistakes that have piled up over the last several years.

Eagles/Indiana/Mets/Villanova: it's a long story

I could live with giving Andy another year to get things right, as long as it doesn't include keeping Marty.

I've never supported firing Andy, and I'm reluctant to embrace the idea now. It's just beginning to look like there might be no other option at this point. He's beginning to fire some people, which is encouraging, I'm just not sure that he's firing the right ones. Problem is, there's not many suitable replacements that I'm comfortable with. noidea
