The Case for and against Andy Reid

First FanPost. Go Easy, please. I’ve been an Eagles’ Fan since the Buddy Ryan days. It seems like there was always hope, back then. Then we stumbled through the Kotite and Rhodes era. I may have given up faith, but I never gave up hoping. Then, Andy Reid came into the picture, and we had another bad year, which is to be expected under a new coach, Doug Pederson and a rookie QB for the second part of the season. But then, we started winning 11, 12 even 13 times a year and made it to the Super Bowl. I thought maybe we have something here, even though I was aware of AR’s shortcomings and Mc5’s inconsistencies. But when I saw this team unprepared for the biggest game they’d ever played, I knew it was time for AR to go. He had taken them as far as he was going too and I’ve been thinking that for six long years now. I still want AR to go. But I think he gives us our best hope next year. It may sound like a flip-flop, but I want AR and MM and even JC here next year. With the roster they’ll have, a lot of picks in the draft, a normal free agent period, OTA’s and a training camp whose new rules they’ve gone through once before, I’m willing to give the Fatman one more chance. Andy, you get a bye year from me next year. But if you leave me scratching/shaking my head, I’m all in after 2012 for you to be all out.
