Ah the 2 new mocks both has us at 8 for some reason. I thought we were rocking a low SOS.


They used the new records, but didn't update SOS.

Reid isn't a good fit for this team anymore. Bill Walsh once said that no coach should stay with the same team for more than 10 years.

Reid's message is expired for these guys. He can't and won't be the guy able to turn it around.


Plus Andy would be on the final year of his contract next year and an extension or andy failing early next year would both be PR nightmares for Lurie.


So he's gone and it's the right move.

Yes. Can i ask why you'd want him back? Also Jeff is gonna look sooo dumb if Reid comes back.

Yes, full change is needed, from the top down (GM included).

That said this past draft has been one of Andy's bests based on the short term. Cox is a stud, Kendricks looked good on the weakside, Foles looks like at worst a solid starter, Vinny Curry has looked good when he's gotten on the field, Brandon Boykin has been solid as a nickel corner, Dennis Kelly is now the starting RT and has shown starter ability, and Bryce Brown is a keeper. The only player we drafted not currently on the active roster is G Brandon Washington, who is on the Rams practice squad. Hell of a haul, but too little too late IMO.

yeah this draft is going to help the new coach next year get us back into contention quicker.

I think you see a draft where we got the measurable to college production right.. they took the numbers from the work outs and got the much needed mix of high ceiling to natural talent. I mean even Kelly look at him tho ugly as a inbred pig he would tower guys like Justice and shows talent unlike Dunlap.

I think the first two weeks of Kendricks and Cox were amazing and pace changing theory changing picks.. I think we got so stuck in "do it the Eagle way" we forgot what it felt like to just take 2 clear cut studs.. no if ends or buts just 2 studs .. So you see the instant feed back on those 2 picks and you keep finding your medium between measurables and the production on tape..

So, he dumps the coordinators you don't like and replaces them with new coordinators you don't like...because that is what would happen.

Plus, you need to give Bowles a chance.
He's been unshackled from Washburn.
Ride it out and see what you have.

I'll pass on this whole idea.
I mean, I like Andy as much as the next guy and I appreciate everything he's done, but it is time for a new coach.

It is like ending a relationship with a girl.
Thirteen years and no ring.....it aint' ever gonna happen, yo.
Plus, he got too fat.

I hope you all know Todd Bowles might not even be here next year. He is interviewing for the HC job at his Alma Matar, Temple.
