Andy Reid Loses Another Game For The Eagles Due to Horrible Clock Management
NFL

Does Anyone Else Think Andy Reid Should Be Fired Immediately?

Look, I'm not an Eagles fan, but I have nothing against them, so don't think I'm biased or something, but I'm 100% convinced that the Eagles need to fire Andy Reid immediately.

Why?

Because as anyone who watched the Sunday Night Football game knows, Andy Reid decided to kick a 52-yard field goal with four minutes left to cut Dallas's lead from seven to four (that made no sense), when he had no timeouts left.

It was seriously the dumbest move I've seen a coach make in years.

Dallas got two first downs and the game was over, because the Eagles couldn't stop the clock. And why had those timeouts been used up? Two challenges that Reid lost, including one where the Eagles actually probably should have lost yardage (which begs the question of why in the hell would you even challenge it?).

But the truth is we've seen this time and time again with Andy Reid. He even cost the Eagles a chance to win Super Bowl 39 by being an idiot in regards to clock management.

And the truth is, it's not going to change. Reid has proven time and time again that he's incompetent when it comes to clock management. It just cost the Eagles the lead in the NFC East, and it potentially cost them a Super Bowl. Lord only knows how many games Andy Reid has lost this team through his stupidity.

Just end it now before he does again.

Worst coaching decisions ever?  Did anybody else see the Pats lose to the Colts this season?  At least Reid was trying to score some kind of points to get back in the game while trailing; Belichik basically gave the ball back to Peyton (while the Pats were leading) and said, "Hey, here's a short field, future hall-of-famer.  Take your shot at the win."

Stop hating on the Eagles because they are looking good and they are doing what they need to do to win.

long as the Eagles keep running screen plays then he's the man.

The Redskin could not even beat a lil league team.  When the Eagles lost to the Oakland that was just luck on the Oakland side but I bet they want lose to the Raiders again.

Why do everyone hate on the Eagles so much.  Eagles should be proud that they have so many haters hating on them it just shows that they are always on someone mind.  Goooooooo!!!!  Eaglesssssss

Andy should have never challenge any of those calls that cost the Eagles with no time out.  I do feel like they should play Vick more then they are because he can be so helpful to this team.  I hope the Eagles learn from this mistake because they should have never lost to those sorry Cowboys.

Well i have always hated the eagles--don't like Mcnabb--cry baby nabb lol--don't like mike for a coach, don't even like our coach that much--but we beat the eagles and the seattle seahawks. So i am happy lol, Don't like either team. Hope we beat eagles twice this year. Fry the birds, lol Ok im done.

I'd trade him straight up for Mike Singletary, to be honest. Bad clock management is one thing but Singletary has made poor choices for his coaches, poor personnel decisions, poor play calling, poor use of timeouts and the niners have now lost 4 straight in a season where they were supposed to rebound.

Well Cowboys winning days will be over soon.  Everyone think they are going to the Superbowl for some reason and I don't know what they are looking at because they are not Superbowl material.  They have not been Superbowl material every since Irving, Emmitt, Akiman, and Woodson been there.  They are just a lucky team that have luck on there side.  If they do go to the playoff they are going to lose in the first round.

I think he should stay on, only so the Eagles keep losing!  I was glad to see the Cowboys win! Sorry.

Andy of the P Eagles should be fired and McNabb should be bench. They both made some of the dumbiest plays and calls I have ever seen. Dallas coach out coached them and McNabb just was throwing the ball and gave the game away.

Why do ever one blame the quarteback when the team lose or the coach.  I understand that Andy made some bad plays and McNabb made some bad throws but it was also the defensive was not playing worth anything too.  I beleive instead of pointing the blame on one person point the blame on the team because ALL of the team was playing sorry!!!!!

I admit that Andy is not a good game-coach.  He is a good evaluator of talent.  Maybe, he should let someone else be the boss on the sidelines.

Hey Hey mrtriplesix get off the Philly fans.  We are not bi polar.  We just should have played better then that and we are a better team then the Cowboys.  I was born and raised in Dallas and I never like the Cowboys I always been an Eagle fan.

I think the Eagles front Office needs to regroup and restart and rehab the whole program.  Mike Holmgren is available and Jon Gruden are available in the market.  Clean house.  Release all the qbs except Kolb, get rid of Brian W.  and start a new program in Phila.  The game plan and the performances were a disgrace.  Time to retool the Eagles.

Reid in his press conference after the game, says he took sole responsibility for the loss. In other words "This loss is on me. Its my fault. I'll take the blame."

11/9/09   |   TheRoss   |   356 respect

I can't condone firing him during the season.

11/9/09   |   reldon

Wow a week ago Andy was a genious, In Hind sight it's 4th down, and 10 or 11 which is pretty far to go. If they went for it and came up empty as apposed to kicking the field goal they would have lost. There were Key injuries on the D as well. Come on where is the LOVE in Philly?

11/9/09   |   NittanyJon   |   245 respect

He is lame and beyond over-rated. He has feasted on Cowboy clowns like Chan Gailey and Dave Campo. As Andy says at the end of the his comments during the Post-Game Press Conference, "Times Yours."

Immediately? No. Leave him on the rack a while longer...till the batteries rain down from the upper deck.
