In the past 14 years we have become accustom to how Andy Reid runs things. If you have even been half paying attention in the last 10 years you have come to expect to see certain things from Reid. We know that Andy’s pass/run ratio will be 50/1 even during a hurricane against a team that has decided to sit their entire defensive line. We know that if the best players in the first round of draft were all linebackers Andy would trade down to the second round. And if Andy’s team needs to execute a 2 minute drill they couldn’t do it if you gave them 5 minutes.
But that’s all about to change. As the countdown to the end of Andy’s tenure is coming closer I’m getting excited to see the change. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve anticipating what I will find under the tree in the morning. I know it’s not a guarantee I’m going to get everything on my wish list. Everyone has found socks in place of what they were really hoping for on Christmas but the possibility of getting exactly what I want is giving me a football boner. We could get the exact opposite of Reid next year. The next head coach could be a D coordinator who’s offensive scheme is built off the run. Not to say that the exact opposite of Andy is what I want or the Eagles need. It would just be a nice to see something different. Picture a press conference with a coach that is the NFL equivalent of Doug Collins. A coach that you can tell loves to talk about the game and you love to listen to him talk about the game. If I never hear “We need to do a better job” again at a press conference it will be to soon.
Above all its the difference that I crave and it can all be different soon. There will be a new head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Although less likely, who knows Howie Roseman could be gone too. We could get a D coordinator that runs a 3-4 defense. I mean it is really a possibility that the Eagles will pick a linebacker with a top 10 draft pick. The bottom line is change is needed, it’s about to come and I can’t wait. What are you hoping for?
