From "Dream Team" to back seat in the NFC East (currently tied with that Washington Football team), the Eagles past two seasons have been as much fun as a roller coaster ride after eating some bad Chinese food. While the ever-loving Philadelphia fans have been calling for Reid to be fired since he came to down (don't look surprised, betcha five dollars he was), now seems to be as real time as any to see Big Andy pack up his suitcase and roll out of the City of Brotherly Love.
Now, some of the more, uh, "bloodthirsty" fans would want Andy to step out on the podium tomorrow, have his moustache sigh, and say that he was leaving Philly. Forever. Some of the other bloodthirsty fans want the same thing, except the owner to deliver the news. But even though our team is looking at a 3-6 record, firing a head coach right now would only spell horrible for the team.
John Madden once said something along the lines of "don't fire your head coach unless you have a guy backing him up". He also used more onamonapias. However, he has a point; the best way to say "we surrender" is to fire your head coach and your GM at the same time.
Oh, yeah, you forgot Andy is both?
Even if the end result is the same (the coaching staff weighing 300 pounds lighter), you want to keep your skilled players around, and it works better if you don't force them to be managed by a new guy for about three months, and then another new guy. You'd want to leave your job too if you had to put up with that crap.
It would be a good idea to keep the longest currently employed head coach until the end of the season wouldn't it? Well, then again, Juan Castillo was coaching for a long as Andy was, but he was canned after the BYE week. So, hell, fire him tomorrow!
