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).

  • How long have you been covering the Eagles? This man had no plan period! His job was to try to keep the fans interst long enough so Laurie could make his millions!

    If you think after 14 years his record shows only 4 championship games which he lost 3 out of 4 and 1 SB apperance and a loss is a good record than you are a looser like him!

    Now I don't want to scare you but here is the next thing after Reid is gone the next thing is for Laurie to sell the team to a local group that are fans of the Eagles!
  • More like "Andy Reid used to be the man with McNabb". Any legit coach could've won at least a couple of Superbowls with McNabb at qb, it's too bad he was happy to never establish a running game, too lazy to even get a FB, he was content with undersized 4-5th string WR's. Look at the biggest WR's on the roster the past 10 years, they're TO (6'3), Baskett (6'4), and Pinkston (6'4 180lbs lol), oh and Cooper.

    Everyone else like G Lewis, Jackson, Avant, Curtis, etc.! Have been 6'0 and under, pretty sad.

    It's good to see Reid FINALLY getting exposed when he doesn't have a superstar to carry him.
