After parting ways with the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid is arguably the hottest coach on the market right now when it comes to landing a head coaching job for the 2013 season. One team that may be a perfect fit for Reid and would even give him an opportunity to reunite with one of his former quarterbacks–the Arizona Cardinals.
Reid will be meeting with the Cardinals on Thursday and one of his strong pitches for why he would make a great fit will be Kevin Kolb–who was drafted by Reid and the Eagles back in 2007. Kolb showed potential a few years ago during his time in Philadelphia, but he’s struggled to live up to his potential during his first two years in Arizona as he’s thrown just 17 touchdowns in the 15 games he’s participated in.
Considering the Cardinals have one of the league’s top wide receivers in Larry Fitzgerald for him to throw to–this is completely unacceptable.
Whoever Arizona decides to go with as head coach will have plenty of work on their plate as the Cardinals lost 11 of their final 12 games following a 4-0 start to the 2012 season. With the amont of money invested in their beloved quarterback, there’s no question Kolb has turned out to be a bust so far and if any head coach is capable of helping him turn things around–it’s Reid.
There was a reason why the Cardinals were willing to acquire Kolb from the Eagles prior to the 2011 season and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Arizona used this as motivation to land Reid on the sidelines for the 2013 season.
