Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid used to be the man with a plan. That was his reputation from the day he interviewed with Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner about the Eagles’ vacant head coaching position in 1999.
Reid was a relative unknown at the time because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay. However, Lurie and Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview process because of how organized he was.
He had an extremely detailed plan for how to build a successful football team, all neatly organized in a thick binder.
When Reid was hired, he set forth his plan by carefully assembling an excellent coaching staff. He brought in the revered Jim Johnson to run the defense as well as other notable assistants such as Steve Spagnuolo, Leslie Frazier, Ron Rivera, Pat Shurmur and Brad Childress…all of whom went on to become a head coach (or currently are).
The next part of Reid’s plan was to bring in some established veterans, particularly on offense, to help get the ba...

Just how bad are the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles? If not for a key lucky break in each of their three wins, Andy Reid’s team would be 0-8 right now.
Just a mere two weeks ago, I posted an article titled 10 Reasons to Remain Optimistic About the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 Season. The Eagles were 3-3 at the time and my thought pattern was that you could see the Eagles’ record...
Andy Reid is fat and his son was a junkie. That’s pretty much the gist of these tweets from angry Eagles bros after last night’s 28-13 loss to the Saints. It was a pretty ugly game from the start so you know frustrations were running high from Philly fans. After Vick’s fifth or sixth sack it got really bad. @jojobasedraichu dropped this gem: “If I catch that f*ck ***** Andy...
Coach Andy Reid says he still believes the Philadelphia Eagles can turn their season around.
The Eagles (3-5) have given him little reason to truly think that, though. They were sloppy and battered in a 28-13 loss to New Orleans on Monday night. They failed to score a touchdown in five trips inside the red zone and Michael Vick was sacked seven times.
Reid says the Eagles are only...
From Day 1, Andy Reid's reputation has been as a man with a plan. He was the guy in control and knew what to do for any situation that arose.
Reid was a relative unknown at the time he was hired in 1999 because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay. However, Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview process because of how organized...
"Hit 'em when they're up, hit 'em when they're down..." That old song "Dirty Laundry" could easily apply to the media blast the Eagles organization is currently getting. Suddenly every radio show host and female sideline reporter is a football expert. They know what's wrong with the Eagles...and they know how to fix it---"fire the Reid...
We've seen it long enough and some of us are sick. Andy Reid and his commitment to Michael Vick is not only dumbfounding, it has cost the Philadelphia Eagles their season.Throughout the first six games, it seemed Vick did everything in his power to spell the Eagles' demise.The Eagles could have lost every game but somehow Philadelphia managed to crawl into their bye week...
Let's jump right into it and state the very obvious fact: Perhaps the best way for Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles to make their football worlds better is to part ways and start new.
When the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, there will be a lot at stake for both teams. At a disappointing 3-5 record, both teams trail the New York Giants in the NFC East by 2.5 games at the midway point in the 2012 NFL season. With both teams having Super Bowl aspirations entering this year, things have not gone at all according to plan.
With that being...
John Czarnecki from the NFL on Fox joins Fox Sports Tonight to discuss the struggles of Andy Reid and Michael Vick and head coaches worried about job security.
With both teams 3-5 the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday afternoon has taken on added importance. It should come as no surprise that coaches Jason Garret and Andy Reid are on the hot seat as both teams have under achieved and are coming off consecutive losses.
The first game between the Cowboys and Eagles this season will be played at Lincoln Financial Field...
To no one’s surprise (except maybe Andy Reid’s), New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan was named the most overrated head coach in the NFL. The Sporting News conducted a mid-season survey of 103 current NFL players from 27 teams and Rex topped the list.
The rest of the list breaks down as follows:
Rex Ryan, Jets (35 votes)
Bill Belichick, Patriots (16 votes)
Andy Reid, Eagles (9...
