CBSPhilly’s and 94.1 WIP’s Spike Eskin thinks so:
[CBSPhilly] Bringing Reid back as coach would be the worst front office decision in modern Philadelphia sports history, and is only possible if you believe that Jeffrey Lurie is capable of making a decision that not only doesn’t make any football sense, but would cause an uproar within a fanbase that is capable of roaring more loudly than any in the country. It would be Philadelphia sports Armageddon. I would fear walking the streets.
As for football, it’s hard to believe that a coach could have done a worse job than Reid did with the 2012 and 2013 Eagles. From personnel, to preparation, to execution, the Philadelphia Eagles have failed on the field as much as any team could. They are undisciplined, untalented, unmotivated, and unsuccessful.
A coach who once created a culture that was conducive to winning, has lost all control of his team on and off the field.
Eight consecutive losses on the field while off the field, LeSean McCoy questions Nick Foles’ decisions, and Jason Kelce starts arguments about gun violence during Sunday night’s loss on Twitter. Rewind a decade, no matter what you thought of Reid, you could never imagine eight straight losses or out of control players. More
Hard to argue right? In today’s day and age, the social media boom/era, this move would be catastrophic. People would go ape tits. Computers would explode. Twitter pages would fly off the screens. Facebook pages would melt away. The Philly social media scene would take on a life of it’s own.
Whether you like Reid or not. Whether you think he is a good coach or not. Whether he had a successful career in Philadelphia or not. Reid has to go. He just has to.
Time’s yours, Jeff.
Ps. Cue the Andy Reid Armageddon photo-shops.
