Last week: 18 (-3) Record: 3-6 It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback he drafted. If he Foles can’t show anything, Reid will probably be gone and a new coach will come in and probably bring in his own quarterback. Given the history of non-1st round pick quarterbacks in the NFL (only 9 of 32 week 1 starting quarterbacks this year weren’t drafted in the first round), I say it’s more likely that Foles flops and Reid goes. It’ll be a shame. I’ve always said that for all of Reid’s faults, his work his quarterbacks outweighs them. He’s almost always fielded competitive teams. That being said, eventually a change just needs to be made, so I can understand letting him so, and if Reid decides he wants to continue coaching, he’ll get another job really quickly. As for potential Reid replacements, look no further than Jon Gruden, who is rumored to be interested in returning to coaching. He has ties to the Eagles, having served there as an assistant in the 90s. He also might have done a little bit of foreshadowing on Monday Night Football during the Eagles/Saints, before the rumors broke. Gruden said something along the lines of “boy I tell ya if the eagles fire Andy Reid they better have someone good lined up to replace him.” If that happens, let’s just hope that ESPN doesn’t hire Andy Reid to replace Gruden on MNF.
