It has been a long season for the Philadelphia Eagles and their long-time coach Andy Reid. The Eagles were able to break an eight-game losing streak on Sunday with a win on the final play of the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The question in my mind is does this win save Reid’s job or will he still be shown the door after the season ends?
The Eagles need a change in more ways than one right now and Reid does need to go. Philadelphia has to let Michael Vick go as well and think about the possibility of trading LeSean McCoy. It’s time for a clean sweep of the whole organization. Reid has been in Philadelphia for a long time and took the Eagles to a Super Bowl and several NFC Championship games but I think the team has begun to tune Reid out.
Philadelphia should go out and find some new blood like former NFL coach Jon Gruden or even dig deeper and try Oregon Ducks coach Chip Kelly. The problem boils down to running the same scheme that they have been running for years and years now and while it has been successful, the Eagles should try something new and see if that works in the highly competitive NFC East. It has grown to a point where the Eagles could end up in the cellar of the division for the next several years if change doesn’t happen as soon as possible. Reid will land somewhere else but for now, it’s time for him to go.
