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.

  • 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!

Hire Gruden now and start to find out who needs to go and give Foles a chance to prove himself.
