First "real post" other than random rants/comments but...
I sincerely hope not...but could Andy Reid possibly be on a hot seat in Philly? With the addition of great well known coaches that were brought in over the last 2 years, Bobby April, Washburn, Mudd. Could any of these be possible replacements for Reid if the "we're all in" doesn't pan out?
Just a thought...
Looking at McNabb's comments about the Eagles and their "aggresive free agency plan".
"I was there for 11 years, and the biggest thing we brought in was T.O.,” McNabb told Clark Judge of CBSSports.com. “Now they’re getting the so-called ‘Dream Team.’ It’s amazing, but I look back on my career and what they’re doing now . . . that’s great; that’s excellent. But you’re seeing another side. You’re seeing Andy [Reid] taking that chance. It’s not just taking that chance on one guy. They’re taking a chance on a bunch of guys. And they’re spending money. That’s amazing. Ever since the lockout [ended], teams have to spend money.”
Looking at Castillo's comments about the Eagles when he was talking about bring Nnamdi in...
We've been in the playoffs 9 out of the last 12 years, 11 or more wins a season for the last how many years, BUT thats not good enough.
Now the team is all in. Spending money like they've never done before, bringing in free agents like they've never done before. Could it be possible that Reid be put on the hot seat if he/they are unable win now?
Making the playoffs and winning the division almost every year is great, but EVERYONE...players, coaches, fans, everyone wants that trophy! BOTTOM LINE!!!
There have definetly been questions about Reids clock management, play calling, etc. Could this "we're all in" philosphy be a way of not only helping the team but Reid's coaching as well? Don't get me wrong, I love Andy as a coach and wouldn't won't to see him gone, but the overall goal is Superbowl win, he's been there once in what 13 years, always great regular season, but something seams to always fall off in the post season. Hopefully he and the Eagles get over that hump this year, and he stays in Philly.
