NFL Rumors: Could Andy Reid Coach the Dallas Cowboys in 2013?

It’s safe to assume that Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles will part ways the second the 2012 season ends; however, Reid still wants to coach a team. According to a recent report, Andy Reid might stay in the NFC East, coaching the Eagles’ opponent tonight – – the Dallas Cowboys.

Talk about a match made in awkward heaven. As obvious as it is that Reid will be done in Philly, it’s just as obvious that Jason Garrett will be done in Dallas; ergo, the NFL rumor does have some merit to it. It’s not like Reid is a bad head coach. It would be hard for anyone to have success with Philadelphia’s makeshift offensive line – – just ask Michael Vick. It also doesn’t help that Reid has been with the Eagles so long. A lot of players – in all sports – tune out coaches after awhile. In my opinion, that’s exactly what happened to Reid.

But would Reid and the Cowboys be a good fit? I think so.

Reid will be motivated more than ever to succeed in 2013, especially if he is coaching against the Eagles twice a year. The Cowboys also have the perfect roster for Reid. Considering Reid is a huge pass-happy guy, he should love throwing it 55 times with Tony Romo and his talented wide receivers.

Having said all of this, it could just be a ploy by someone from Reid’s camp  to create some sort of bidding war:

“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening. But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”

It will definitely be interesting to see where Reid ends up, especially if it’s the Dallas Cowboys.
