The Cardinals defeated the Eagles in a very ugly game, 21-17. This loss could be the one that puts the nail in the coffin for the Eagles 2011 season and could be the one that puts the nail into Andy Reid’s coaching career with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The loss makes the Eagles record on the season 3-6 and fans are wondering what is next with what had been such a promising season that the Eagles had envisoned. What is next for this team?
Does Reid have a problem with having a quality running game? Thru his career with the Eagles he always seems to have a problem with utilizing a running attack and 2011 is no different. The Eagles have the leading rusher in the National Football League in 2011 with LeSean McCoy.
Coach what were you thinking in Sundays game by keeping the ball out of McCoy’s hands for almost 13 minutes of the game? There was no DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.
What were you thinking in that stubborn brain of yours? Our coach just has this thing for passing the ball most of the time. It has been something he has just not been able to overcome in his tenure with the Eagles. He’s an admitted “Passaholic” and can’t stop passing the football.
Michael Vick the Philadelphia Eagles offensive leader had a terrible game. His passes were not hitting the receivers and he committed turnovers which eventually cost the Eagles the game in the end. He was over throwing to most of his wide receivers all day long.
We learned yesterday that Vick broke two ribs on the second play of the game against the Cardinals. The offense was able to only score one touchdown for the entire game.
Reid needs to take most of the blame for continuing to rely on Vick despite the fact that he wasn’t on his game. We didn’t know why during the game, but it still didn’t make sense to continue throwing the football while your quarterback is struggling and your running game is rolling.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Eagles played better for at least three quarters of the game.
Let’s look closely again at Juan Castillo, our defensive coordinator who is in over his head. He’s just getting out-coached by the opponents. Reid, you again are to blame for this. You hired a guy who was the team’s offensive line coach and had no experience in the NFL as a defensive coordinator.
Every fan inside THE Linc on Sunday knew that the Cardinals had one offensive threat and that threat was Larry Fitzgerald. Why are you not double-teaming him and when you were going to single cover him, then why not with Nmandi Asomugha?
Coach you have no idea what is going on, on the field. The defense looks clueless because they are. They are getting that from you who have no idea what in the world you are doing and it totally shows on the field. Andy Reid, this is your big mistake and another reason why it is time for you to go.
Andy Reid, the time has finally come. How many more times do the fans of Philadelphia have to hear you say, “I’ve got to do a better job or it’s my responsibility. It has become a broken record and it looks like you cannot do it. This has been going on for the 13 years you have been in Philadelphia.
Andy you are the winningest coach in the franchise history and you brought the franchise back. But sometimes a coach can only take a team so far and it looks like you are that kind of coach. You cannot get the Philadelphia Eagles over that hump.
It is time for a new head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. Time for a new system and coaches. Andy Reid must go but will Jeff and Joe let him go.
