pointyfootball Posted November 20, 2006 Share Posted November 20, 2006 There are a lot of things I like about Andy Reid: His even-keeled approach to coaching football, his willingness to try and get the most important players (besides QB) - OL/DL, and his run from 2000-2004, where he brought playoff football back to Philadelphia. That being said, I think his approach, coaching style, personnel and system have all worn out their welcome. Not saying he might not win in the future, or that he isn't a very good coach. I just think that barring MAJOR changes in coaching, personnel and/or systems, after several years the coach loses the team's focus. To me it just seems like this team has tuned AR out. Maybe it's because the leaders on this team can't motivate the way they used to. Maybe it's because the offense, so successful a few years ago, hadn't adapted to ebb/flow of defenses in the league. Same goes for the defense, which was originally built to fight St. Louis, and stopping the pass seems to be the only thing J.Johnson worries about. This team is undisciplined, unmotivated, poorly coached, out-hustled and out-coached on game day consistently. As much as I love AR as a person, I think the kind of shake up that is required is significantly more than getting rid of a player or two and signing a Matt Schobel-type player. McNabb can now officially be classified as injury-prone, missing the end of 3 out of the last 5 regular seasons. He MUST have help, as in a good running game. Making him throw 30+ times EVERY game makes his chances of getting injured increase! How can every fan see/know that but not the coaching staff? Who would I love for the Eagles to get? The guy who beat them yesterday - Jeff Fisher. He was defensive coordinator here and is a very good football coach, who understands that you win by running the football and stopping the run.
