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

The defense is some poo. If you are going to run the wide 9 you got to have CB's come up and make tackles. Asomugha or Rogers- Cromartie don't tackle well. They're also man to man CB's but the Eagles are playing a lot of zone due to the fact that their safetys are poo also. Injuries are also killing them on the Oline and Vick hurt.

If you get a damn good Defensive coordinator with Andy Reid then he would be a good coach for the Panthers. I don't think Jerry pursue though.

No way! All you have to do is read this article and tell me that the Panther fan base would be ok with this.

Fans in Philadelphia have been yelling for years that Andy Reid does not run the ball enough. This year, with one of the best running backs in the NFL, that yelling has become even louder. Now, it’s not just the fans who are calling for LeSean McCoy to get more carries.

“I think Andy Reid doesn’t know how to use LeSean McCoy,” former Chargers Pro Bowl running back LaDanian Tomlinson said on the NFL Network on Sunday. “Doesn’t know how to use him as much as he should. Clearly, you look at the numbers it tells you they should be running the football more, but they’re not. That tells me the coach, the play caller, does not know how to use this guy.”

Not so sure about that. Really seems as though JR is going a different direction and might make a big splash, the firing of Hurney mid season, the hiring of Accorsi. Thats not typical JR

True. The hiring of Ernie Accorsi will do wonders for our team. We just got to get the right coach in here to fix things up. We will see soon enough what JR will do.

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?

Absolutely not. For three (3) reasons:

First, Andy Reid looks like a man who is burned out and needs at least a year away from the game. After the tragedy he experienced with his son's death, I'm not sure it was a good idea for him to have coached this year and some time away from the sidelines and pressures of an NFL HC may do him some good e.g. Jeff Fisher.

Second, Reid is a WCO disciple and just from schematic/philosophy standpoint, that style of offense would not mesh with the current players we have on the roster. Most significantly, Cam Newtown is not a WC QB and his skillset is better suited for the Air Coryell offense we run now. To implemet this system would present an almost complete overhaul of the offense player/scheme, and would present a huge learning curve for a 2nd year QB who just now appears to be finding his groove. Reid's WCO is very pass heavy, which would mean further under utilizing the expensive stable of RBs we have.

Third, although Reid is known for successfully working with QBs (after all he was a QB coach/OC under Mike Holmgren), Reid's time in Philly has been marred by the some of the same inconsistencies, game management issues, lack of good drafting etc that we complain about with our current regime. True, he's more experience than Rivera, but that doesn't make him a better rreplacement.

Do you guys realize that Reid has only been to 1 superbowl as a head coach and he has had some talented teams to coach.

He is not the answer for this team.

Andy Reid is the NFL's Rick Majerus on about 4 different levels, not interested at all. He will never win the big one.

Well, he fed Bryce Brown all night against us and he's doing it again tonight against the Cowboys.
