Andy Reid and the Eagles Ready to Win in 2011

By Eagles Gab Columnist Chet Cashley

Let’s face it Philadelphia, we’ve got a hard time giving credit where credit is due when it comes to our sports teams, and nobody takes more of a beating from our passionate fans than Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid.

As Philly fans, it’s easy to get frustrated with coaching.  Before the Phillies won the 2008 World Series, we’d been in a championship drought that spanned decades in all sports.  And not only did we lose, but we had our hearts broken.  We’ve been so close to victory that we could almost smell it over the hot dogs and beer, only to have our hopes crushed as we watched our heroes take an opportunity of a lifetime and vomit all over it in the end-zone.

No Philly coach has been responsible for more Philly sports fans’ broken hearts than Eagles’ coach, Andy Reid.  Big Andy’s taken the Eagles to the playoffs nine times since taking over the team in 1999.  Five out those nine times, we’ve seen his trademark hat and mustache combination on prime-time TV in the NFC Championship Game, resulting in only one Super-Bowl appearance and no ring.
