Andy Reid remains on a short leash unless in 2012

After a disappointing 2011 season in which the Philadelphia Eagles posted a 8-8 record and missed the playoffs. Andy Reid has remained the scapegoat to Eagles fans. Overall Andy Reid is now entering his 13th season with a record of 126 wins, 81 losses and 1 tie as the Philadelphia Eagles head coach.

Despite all of the talent the Eagles acquired last season during free agency, the fact remains the Eagles never had a great opportunity to gel as a team. The NFL lockout didn’t allow any NFL teams to have any mini-camps before the start of training camp.

Therefore Andy Reid deserves a second chance to prove he can take the Philadelphia Eagles back to the promised land Super Bowl 47. Former Philadelphia Eagles free safety Brian Dawkins stated  ” This is the year to me that says, if there was a chance for this team to go far it should be this year.” ” You should know your team, you should know who can do what,” Dawkins stated in reference to his former head coach Andy Reid.

The best way for Andy Reid to avoid all of the doubters and criticism is to finally prove he can win a Lombardi trophy as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles this season.
