Philadelphia Eagles: Awful Season Finally Comes To A Close
A 4-12 record is never welcomed in a city like Philadelphia. The underachieving 2012 Philadelphia Eagles laid another egg on Sunday as the New York Giants gave them an absolute throttling. Perhaps this is the perfect conclusion of a season that involved the Eagles getting beaten to a pulp. Without a doubt, the Eagles will need to do a massive overhaul of a team that was proclaimed as an NFL “dream team” just a season ago.
The issue all season long has been the offensive line, one that has left Michael Vick on his rear end far too much. Vick’s growth as a quarterback has been stunted due to such poor play by this offensive line. Playing in fear of his life, Vick poured in his worst campaign of his career, including ten fumbles in only ten games.
The indecision at quarterback was not at all eased by the play of rookie quarterback Nick Foles. The Arizona Wildcat struggled as well with a 1-6 record in seven starts. While Foles did impress in a last second victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he was pedestrian with 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions this brief season.
Andy Reid has been at the helm of all this chaos. Surprising as it sounds, Reid still remains head coach. In my mind, Reid deserved to get canned along time ago. A season of struggles combined with off the field issues, Reid has been tortured by this team in 2012. Hopefully, a new season means a new and improved team for Reid to coach.
If by some miracle Reid is retained as head coach in Philly, the NFL world might spin off of its axis. It is simply time for the Eagles to jump ship and rebuild under new regime.
