If, in fact, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is fired at season’s end, we’ll be in the market for a new leader on the grid iron. Besides the aspects of personality characteristics, track record and reputation, one big question is whether or not we should bring in an offensive or defensive-minded head coach.
And furthermore, does that matter?
Well, since winning the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal, I thought I’d take a look at all of the head coaches who have ever coached in the big game. Going in, I thought they’d predominantly be coaches with an offensive background, and I was correct…

Of the 46 teams that have won the Super Bowl, 27 have been by an offensive-minded head coach. However, five of the past 10 winners came from a defensive background.

If the Eagles fire Andy Reid and the Cowboys fire Jason Garrett, would Dallas be interested in Reid? At least one "reliable source" thinks so.
Is Andy Reid making moves in order to remain head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013? I’m sure nobody really wants to hear this, or even think about it, but there is a scenario brewing that could ultimately keep Reid in Philly…

Pretty much everyone knows that Andy Reid will not be the head coach in Philadelphia after this season.
If the team’s owner demanding more than a .500 year before the season began wasn’t enough, the Eagles going 3-9 so far and showing new depths of futility on the fumble and injury fronts surely is. The question now is when Reid will be let go.
Or is it? As the Eagles prepared...
It’s almost a certainty to this point that Andy Reid will be fired as coach of the Eagles after the season. It’s only an almost certainty because owner Jeff Lurie said last year that average wasn’t good enough and Reid will not survive another average year. The best the Eagles could finish this season before...
It’s a pretty good chance that Eagles coach Andy Reid will be fired at season’s end. It’s also a pretty good chance that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will be fired at season’s end. And that’s where the similarities between the two end.

Following another lost, the Eagles fired another member of the coaching staff. Nope, it's still not Andy Reid. Early Monday morning, the Eagles have announced that they have relieved defensive line coach Jim Washburn of his duties.
The team has announced the hiring of Tommy Basher. Basher was the defensive line coach in 1985, and 1999-2005.
Updates to come.
Casey Matthews is suffering through a miserable season under head coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles. After a 3-1 start, the Eagles have dropped seven straight and Reid has lost control of this team. It is all but inevitable that 2012 will be Reid’s final season coaching the eagles, and if that is indeed the case, Matthews has a suggestion for who the next head coach...
The NFL’s week 13 MNF matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles put the spotlight on a pair of 3-8 teams who are headed towards empty postseasons. For the Carolina Panthers, they appear to be an organization that will look to shuffle the deck once more this offseason. They pulled the plug on longtime General Manager Marty Hurney several weeks ago and...
When Sean Payton’s contract extension with the Saints was recently voided by the NFL, it was believed that the Cowboys and Eagles would spend the early part of the off-season wrangling to secure a coach to tell them to DO THEIR JOB. The talk of that has dissipated somewhat in the last few weeks, with other high-profile coaching candidates rumored to be considered for those jobs...
