The longest tenured coach in the NFL right now is Andy Reid. He has been the coach in Philadelphia since 1999. Since he has taken over the Eagles, they have won 6 division titles. Been to the NFC Championship game 5 times(which he is 1-4), and has made it to the Super Bowl just 1 time (which he lost to New England 24-21). Since 1999 the rival Giants have made it to the Super Bowl 3 times, and winning twice. That doesn’t really sit well with Eagles fans. Philadelphia has lost their last 3 playoff games, and even worse not even making the playoffs last season. The 2011 season may have been the most disappointing season for Reid and the Eagles. After the lockout all eyes were on the “Dream Team”, and everyone was picking them to not only win the division, but make it to the Super Bowl. A promising first win of the year against St. Louis, was quickly forgotten after 4 straight losses. Heading into their bye week the heat was starting to turn up on Reid. After finishing 8-8 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007 to say the season was a disappointment was an understatement. This season is put up or shut up time for Reid and the Eagles. Since 2001 even though his official title is executive vice president of football operations he is really the general manager. No player wearing a Eagles uniform doesn’t have his stamp of approval. On paper the Eagles should win the division and compete again for the super bowl title. This will be the Eagles 80th season of football, only twice have they made the Super Bowl, losing both times. Even though he has the highest winning percentage of any Eagles coach, ask any Eagles fan and they will tell you they could careless about the regular season. We judge coaches about wins and losses in the postseason. With a 10-9 postseason record and 0 super bowl wins anything short of a super bowl win this season again will be a disappointment. How many more disappointments can Eagles fans take. If Philadelphia gets off to a slow start expect the heat to be turned up on high for Reid. If I know anything about Eagles fans they don’t accept failure, they expect their teams to win every season.   Related articles
