Andy Reid as QB Coach?

As a Carolina fan I'm pretty sure you all are aware of how well of a QB Michael Vick was. Sure he could run and could make certain throws but he was never truly a QB because he would just make plays out of his raw talent. When he went to Philly and spent a few years with Andy Reid you saw a immediate transformation in the way he played the game and he almost didn't resemble the player he was in Atlanta.
Now Cam at this point in his career is a much better QB than Michael Vick was at the same time in his but in alot of the games I see Cam always trying to make the big play instead of just checking it down. I can't even count how many times I've seen Tolbert or Olsen wide open in the flat. Running this read option poo is clearly taking a toll on how Cam sees the field and makes his reads.
Andy Reid has been known for a long time as pretty damn near close to a QB Guru. He took McNabb and turned him into a Pro-Bowler and one of the top QB's in the league. He got Michael Vick and fine tuned him into a pocket passing QB and not just a running QB. Cam still has to work to do on some of his mechanics but I would expect that out of a 2nd year QB. Reid could do the same for Cam by fine tuning his already natural ability.
tl;dr version: Panthers should look into bringing Andy Reid in as a OC possibly or QB Coach because "Dud" has stalled Cam's growth and development this year as a QB.
