Andy Reid or Norv Turner.. Which would you pick?

Neither,

I SERIOUSLY dont understand why people want a coach that has proven they cant get the job done ie win a SuperBowl.

Why we would want another teams trash is beyond me.

You mean like about 20% of the players on our team that Sand Diego dumped or the castoff coaches from the Cleveland and Philly dynastys?

Reid is the beneficiary of a very well run personnel system in Philly. I have my doubts as to whether he'd be able to duplicate his successes away from that system.

They've had at least three directors of college scouting in the last ten years. Also being VP of football operations his opinion on personnel has a tremendous weight attached to it, no pun intended.

Add in that he's one of those coaches whose teams always look great in the regular season but all too often fold in the playoffs.

10-9 record in the playoffs. If by "fold" you mean "Marty Schottenheimer fold", you're horribly mistaken.

Realistically if we wanted to take a serious shot at improving and Andy Reid's just sitting there waiting to be hired after being run out of Philadelphia, there's no reason not to hire him. People here were so much in favor of hiring Rivera, who has the sideline presence of a walking stick.

Both Belichick and Coughlin were retreads

If I were JR and wanted a new coach, I would put together a team of professionals and tell them to search pro and college ranks with a specific objective in mind. That objective would be to find the person who most closely replicated the characteristics of Mike Tomlin. Someone with his level of experience, who communicates like him, whose expectations for players are like his, etc.

In my mind, he is one of the best coaches in the league right now, and you just have to wonder what he could do with our squad.

anything but an average DC who was completely overrated and NO MORE goddamn cleveland retreads PLEASE. Davidson and Chud sure did/are working out.

Leave it to the Panthers to hand pick their coaching tree from the Browns. The one organization we rival.

Belichick was only a HC for 4 seasons.

How long have Reid and Turner been HC's?

Not comparable imo.

There isnt no well he is still rather green and might have some potential with Reid and Turner. They have had their chances and are what they are.

Wow, what a choice... two of the most underachieving HC's of all time.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
