It wasn't just because of Detroit.
I think he's done a great job in Philly, but yes he failed in Detroit but its Detroit.
The defining moment of his head coaching career was when the Lions won the toss in a sudden death overtime game, and he let the other team have the ball first.
Three guesses what happened.
When asked why he had done it, he said something about believing in his defense. Marty, who cares if you believe in your defense? It's sudden death! You win and the game is over.
Those are not the actions of a bad head coach. They're the actions of an idiot :nonod:
No way I want Marty in any capacity that involves game management decisions.
Honestly, a lot of people have looked good under Andy Reid that have sucked when they went elsewhere (Brad Childress, for example).
