PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The rumor mill will be running at full steam over the next month or two, so take heed. We’ll be inundated with reports about who will be the next Eagles coach, and where Andy Reid will coach next season.
A report from NJ.COM’s Mark Eckel says that Andy Reid may wind up with tonight’s Eagles opponent, the Dallas Cowboys. According what Eckel says is an “extremely reliable source,” who is “close to Reid”:
“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening,” the source said. “But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”
Again, the disclaimer here is that there are going to be a lot of reports, just like this one. That isn’t to say Eckel’s source isn’t reliable, or close to Reid. It’s just to say that you shouldn’t plan on seeing Reid wearing a Cowboys hat tonight.
All of that said, can you imagine the first time the Cowboys visit Lincoln Financial Field next season, and the reaction from fans? Both teams will probably be terrible, but that would be fun to watch.
