Andy Reid and Carolina, match made in heaven?

58 posts in this topic

First the obvious reason, Andy Reid would do wonders with Cam and there is no doubt Reid deep down has a man crush on Newton. And another reason that never gets mentioned is im sure Reid would not only welcome a change of venue but also a laid back city like Charlotte might be just the break he needs. Not sure he would want another harsh enviroment like a Dallas or the Jets.

The bottom line is we need Reid and Reid needs us. Thoughts?

I'd sign up for it in a heartbeat. He's never won a SB, so I assume he's still hungry whereas I'd worry Cowher was just doing it for a paycheck.

He would make us an offensive force. He's a players coach. The dude is a winner. Sign me up.

I would just need someone to explain to me what the hell is going on with Philly this year

I don't oppose the idea of course it depends what are options are. We would need a strong d coordinator

Yeah, those quick passes to the LoS are really Cam's strength, let's base out entire offense around them.

That's kind of how I feel about the situation. I would love to have Reid, but if I'm interviewing him for a job, that's the exactly question I'd ask.

I view Reid as John Fox. Just needs a change of pace and a fresh start like Fox with the Broncos

As long as we get an established d coordinator and andy doesn't have too much control over personnel Id be stoked for him to come to carolina

Things would need tailored. I remember watching a lot of McNabb and it was a lot of balls down the seams and taking shots under Reid.... That's how it would be for Cam.

to be fair though, he was 8-8 last year (did that plenty with us) and had Peyton Manning the living legend fall in his lap

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
