Eagles Fans Share Mixed Feelings Over Lurie’s Decision To Keep Reid

By Paul Kurtz

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles fans appear to have mixed feelings about Jeffrey Lurie’s decision to keep coach Andy Reid around for at least another year.

There was little surprise among the small crowd of fans watching Jeffrey Lurie on the big screen at Chickie’s and Pete’s, but there was a good deal of disappointment.

“To have a team with this much talent and not get them together to me is a big fault as far as the coach is concerned. And for him to keep him for next year is unbelievable.”

“Twelve years in the same job. Rest of the team knows how he goes about coaching. He doesn’t change anything. Everything’s still the same. Clearly this is not what you were hoping for. That’s correct.”

But Andy Reid still has his supporters.

“Andy Reid’s been there. He’s doing a great job and good for him. I hope he stays for awhile.”

“I don’t mind seeing Reid for one more year. But after that, if doesn’t do it next year it’s time to go”

    I am not an Eagles fan so this is coming from an objective point of view. Andy needs to be gone. his game clock management is horrible as is his use of challenges. He has been here for 13 yrs. He has the longest tenure of any head coach, in ANY OF THE 4 MAJOR PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, that has not won a championship. If he has not won already with some of the teams he has had, he never will. Every press conference after a loss he says ” this is my fault, I need to do better”. OK Walrus, if that’s the case you need to be gone and Lurie is a bigger idiot for allowing that to happen over and over.

    You can have Tom Landry, Knute Rockne, Vince Lombardi, all rolled up into one…The players still have to execute. The best game plans and the best coaches still don’t guarantee champions.
