He has more wins than any other head coach in franchise history.
Only three others in NFL annals have ever reached 100 career victories as quickly.
He is currently the league's longest-tenured head coach with one team at 14 seasons, only two of which have ended with a losing record.
And along the way, the Philadelphia Eagles reached five NFC Championship games, one Super Bowl and captured six division titles.
None of this will matter if Andy Reid can't get his slumping squad back into the playoffs. And even then, that may not be good enough for Reid to keep his job.
Just ask Don Shula.
He won more games than anyone in NFL history. He led Miami to two Super Bowl titles -- including the league's only perfect season -- and three more championship appearances. He enjoyed iconic status in South Florida during 26 years with the Dolphins.
What did all this mean when the 1995 Miami Dolphins fell short of Super Bowl expectations?
Nothing. Shula retired under fire even tho...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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...
RETURN OF CHUCKY?
The speculation out of Philadelphia is if Andy Reid is relieved of his head coaching duties for the reeling Eagles at season's end, Jon Gruden possibly could be his replacement.
At this point, it's almost a foregone conclusion that Andy Reid will be relieved of his duties as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles at season's end. And unless the Mayan prophecy comes true next month, that's exactly what will happen come January.
Although, I will throw out the disclaimer that this season is technically not over. Theoretically, the Eagles could...
From Day 1, Andy Reid's reputation has been as a man with a plan. He was the guy in control and knew what to do for any situation that arose.
Reid was a relative unknown at the time he was hired in 1999 because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay. However, Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview process because of how organized...
Yesterday afternoon, Walter Football.com’s Charlie Campbell broke the news that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Head Coach Jon Gruden is preparing for a return to the NFL. Gruden has been out of the league since 2008. Charlie also is reporting that Gruden is looking into the availability of several assistants after the 2012 season, including former Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive...
Let's jump right into it and state the very obvious fact: Perhaps the best way for Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles to make their football worlds better is to part ways and start new.
I think there are two ways Andy Reid can save his job. If he makes the playoffs or if Nick Foles shows some promise. The former isn’t happening most likely. At 3-5, they’d have to go 7-1 the rest of the way to make the playoffs most likely and while Reid is a great coach in the 2nd half of the season, I can’t see that happening. However, if he benches Vick for Foles and Foles...
It's no secret that most Eagles fans are ready to move on from Andy Reid. After 14 seasons, countless quarterback controversies, astronomical expectations and, oh yeah, ZERO championships, it seems time for a fresh start in the City of Brotherly Love.When asked about which coach they would prefer to see over Reid, fans immediately go for the cream of the crop. You'll hear...
When the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, there will be a lot at stake for both teams. At a disappointing 3-5 record, both teams trail the New York Giants in the NFC East by 2.5 games at the midway point in the 2012 NFL season. With both teams having Super Bowl aspirations entering this year, things have not gone at all according to plan.
With that being...
With both teams 3-5 the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday afternoon has taken on added importance. It should come as no surprise that coaches Jason Garret and Andy Reid are on the hot seat as both teams have under achieved and are coming off consecutive losses.
The first game between the Cowboys and Eagles this season will be played at Lincoln Financial Field...
According to Howard Eskin of 94 WIP Radio in Philly, Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden could be headed to Philadelphia to become the Eagles’ next head coach if they decide to fire Andy Reid at the end of the season.
I can’t imagine the Eagles keeping Reid around after another highly disappointing season.
I think the Eagles would be a good fit for Gruden, who would love...
With very little having gone right for the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys of late, both teams understand what's at stake Sunday in this crucial NFC East clash.
Philadelphia tries to avoid dropping five straight for the first time under coach Andy Reid when it hosts Dallas, which has lost four of five.
Since winning three of their first four games, the Eagles' season...
