Found November 10, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
The notion that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid will be fired at the end of this season is gaining momentum.  Barring a miraculous turnaround, that’s exactly what will happen come January. Assuming that’s the case, the next question will obviously be: Who’s our next head coach? The two hot names out there right now being mentioned as potential replacements are Sean Payton and Jon Gruden.  Payton, however, will most likely return to the Saints once they get a new deal hammered out. Gruden is a distinct possibility and is a decent candidate.  However, this is where Jeff Lurie is going to have to make a certain kind of decision first, before hiring anyone. Lurie will need to decide if he wants to bring in a new coach to rebuild the roster, just like Reid did in 1999, or if he wants to bring in a veteran head coach who can maximize the talent already in place. Jon Gruden is the latter.  He is not the guy to bring in if you are interested in blowing this team up and s...

  • There are some players that need to go, but my true feeling is when a team turns on their coaching they just lay down and show no real effort! Which means get rid of Reid and their secondary! go after pro LB's not wanna be's! Rebuild the OL plus get rid of the wide 9 and Mudd! Fire April! Hire Gruden now and start to find out who needs to go and give Foles a chance to prove himself.

    If anyone in their right mind thinks there is chance for Reid and this team will turn it around must be on "DRUGS"
