Devo: I maintain that Reid has been a winner for Philly. It might be time to part ways, but I respect what he has accomplished. He has (at worst) put an above average team on the field.

Reid was in the right place at the right time. He hit big by drafting Donovan McNabb, who made Reid's terrible system work. And he thrived with Ray Rhodes' defensive talent. Notice that as those players fell off or were kicked out the door, Reid's teams declined. He's not a good coach, he just had players that could overcome his deficiencies. As a talent evaluator he sucks, especially on defense.

Just as Reid proved in firing Castillo a number of weeks ago, there are few upsides to firing a coach in the middle of the season. The replacement would likely be Morningwheg and he's as culpable as Reid for the awful state of the O line. What improvement has been witnessed in the defense since Castillo got canned and Bowles took over? None might be a good answer because, in fact, the defense got worse.

Short answer -- this team is a mess and a very large broom needs to sweep all the coaches and a number of overpaid, and disinterested players out of Philly. About the only certain keepers from this squad are Jason Peters and LeSean McCoy (once they're healthy) and possibly a defensive linesman or so. The Michael Vick experiment is over and the only way Foles stays on the team is if he shows improvement between now and the end of the year. The defensive secondary should be taken out back and put down like one of Vick's underperforming fighting mutts.

Supes: I can't believe I'm saying this, but.... this season isn't Andy Reid's fault.

Considering Andy Reid has picked all of the players and rearranged the whole coaching staff, how on earth is it not his fault?

xaks: Ouch.

DeSean Jackson is out for the year, fractured ribs.

It just keeps getting better for the Iggles.

It hardly matters. This team is a dumpster fire and most of the players stopped several weeks ago. DeSean might as well avoid head injuries for a while.

Devo: If you had a coach that made the playoffs 9 of the last 12 years would you keep him? Plenty of teams would be very happy with that result.

2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010

And zero Super Bowl rings and a clear trajectory downwards going forward? It's weird how your post missed that, seeing that you knew that already.

eKonk: Add the J-E-S-T to the definite list as well. Rex Ryan would have gotten lynched on Thanksgiving if any Jets fans had bothered staying to the end of the game.

Tbh why would the Jets' do this? They've given him crap to work with this year. Don't like Rex at all, but AFAIC he's the least one to blame for the Jets' woes. Tannenbaum should be the one under the guillotine.
