Three More Years of Reid

Excellent. I wonder how many more years he'll end up coaching. Given his track record, age, and Lurie's faith in him, there's no reason to think he can't coach this team for another 10-15 years. Wouldn't that really cheese off half of Eagles nation?

If he wins and learns not to blow time outs and wins a Super Bowl, I am all for it.

What if the last 2 never happen? Do you think Lurie would fire him if he goes 10-6 with at least 1 win in the playoffs every other year? Because that's basically Reid's track record and after all this time there's not much chance that's going to change. Either for the better (SB win) or worse (back to back losing seasons).

Personally, I'll still take Reid over about anyone else out there because he gives them a shot every year.

Lurie loves Andy Reid. LOVES him !!! This job is Andy's for as long as he wants it, SB or not. We could see a Chuck Knoll type tenure here.

Andy will be the head coach for as long as he wants to be. And why not? He fronts a class organization, the team wins consistently, and he seems to enjoy the job. He isn't perfect, but who is? On balance he does way more right than wrong. Remember Rich Kotite? Ray Rhodes? Marion Cambell?

And Bumble, forget the fact that pro football players have like a 17 times greater chance of living with dementia at an early age and focus on the eyewear choices concussion boy Jaws is making these days. Even the unaffected are affected, if you look close enough...

I think it's ironic that neither of the 2 longest tenured head coaches in the NFL right now have won a SB.

For betetr or worse, we are stuck with him, so we just have to make the most of it. I don't see him as infallible as everyone else seems to, but I admit that I am tired of big spot chokes and mismanagement in the spotlight. If he won one, just one SB, he'd own the city forever. The radio chat is very mixed on this extension and I know that many here will say that those are mindless lemmings following the brainless chatter of Rhea and Angelo, but I don't fully agree. there is an arrogance to reid, Lurie, and Banner that is not overly deserved. Do they have a nice little program, you betcha. have they really won a damn thing yet? Nope. Yes a handful of playoff games and division titles, but they haven't competed when it matters most. Many on this blog are resigned to the fact that it's Ok if it never happens, but I am personally not. i see a ton of similarities between this team's young core and the Phils. Jackson, McCoy, Maclin, Celek, Justice (cannot believe I just printed that), Kolb, Bradley (assuming he'll ever play again), Avant-those guys need some strong defensive leaders, some luck from an injury standpoint, and coaching that doesn't struggle in big situations and they could challenge for SB for the next several years. If Reid can fix the things he's done poorly for 10 years, then I'm on board with this, but the track record says nice little 10-6 program with a playoff win each year, but never taking the Lombardi trophy home.
