High expectations for the Philadelphia Eagles have led to fans displaying their displeasure for Andy Reid and the coaching staff, but according to Pro Football Talk all signs point to Andy Reid staying put in Philadelphia.
Mike Florio wrote "The fact remains that Reid is a very good coach. He has proven to be one of the best quarterbacks coaches in league history, as evidenced by the reality that quarterbacks play better with Reid than they do with anyone else. From Mike Vick to Kevin Kolb to Donovan McNabb to Vince Young (with limited time in the system) to A.J. Feeley to Jeff Garcia to Koy Detmer to Mike McMahon, Reid has shown on a consistent basis that he can coach up quarterbacks. Since quarterback remains the most important position on the field, that ability should not be underestimated."

Stop the hype time to admit Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles are an over hyped dysfunctional organization. I'm not basing my comments on just the 2011 season either, they have been dysfunctional for years.
Winning seasons have masked many failures for coach Andy Reid and the Eagles. I read and listen to comments about how great an organization Philadelphia has been, how...
Audio of the always entertaining Andy Reid press conference after the jump.
If the Eagles go to Seattle and are beaten by a bad Seahawks team it will increase the chances that Andy Reid will be fired. The embarrassing loss to the Patriots surely gave Jeffrey Lurie and Joe Banner more reasons to consider firing Reid. Lurie is from the Boston area. He considered purchasing the Patriots.
I don't know if the Eagles are going to fire Andy Reid. They've suffered through 5-11 and 6-10 seasons with him before, and he survived those. Someone upstairs really believes in the guy.
But if, at the end of the season, they do choose to let him go, they should hire this young fellow as a consultant (like The Bobs in Office Space) to come in and clean house. Even if he...
The Philadelphia Eagles have often performed their best in December under Andy Reid. The expected Super Bowl contenders will be hoping that trend continues, as they enter the month with their playoff hopes hanging by a thread heading into a critical Thursday night tussle with the Seattle Seahawks from CenturyLink Field.
After the NFL lockout ended, the Philadelphia Eagles went to town and signed several free agents, which made them the talk of the NFL.
Among the signings was coveted cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha.
You see, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie made available some cash for the free agents.
But after it was over (or before), the Eagles ran out of money and gave Head coach Andy Reid a sure...
Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that the injured QB will not practice Tuesday, making it highly unlikely he will play Thursday night against the Seahawks.
DeSean Jackson was peppered with questions about whether he was refusing to talk with teammates on the sideline. Embattled coach Andy Reid was asked if his team was even invested at this point of the season and if Jackson was essentially a decoy.
In case you have been under a rock, a growing issue in the city has been Andy Reid's play calling, especially when it comes to giving carries to LeSean McCoy. People have called radio stations about it. They have written about it. And yes, they have even made t-shirts about it.
While their is no question that McCoy needs to see the ball more, an issue that no one has been talking...
On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars fired longtime coach Jack Del Rio, which really wasn’t a surprise around league circles. It will also not be surprising, when the Eagles (with or without Andy Reid) let go the project that was Juan Castillo as Defensive Coordinator. Castillo just has looked bewildered and confused most of the time, [...]
