    I hear that the Eagles are likely going to be firing Reid at the end of this season but as far as the Eagles have played thus far I see no reason for them firing him,they even have an outside shot at the Conference title.

    What kills me is that Dungy is allegedly secured in his job in Indy and only leaves if he decides to retire,but as far as playoff games go,Dungy has been one and done in 4 of his last 7 playoffs games while Andy Reid is 9-0 in 1st round games.

    Someone sense some disrespect on Andys behalf here or is it because Donovan and Andy dont see eye to eye?

    Reid is a better HC than Dungy ever was...and its not even close

    I only heard the Reid rumors towards midseason when the Eagles were doing really bad, can't say it was a suprise. Haven't heard them lately but then again I don't watch much TV. If he happens to get fired with the Eagles getting to at least the divisionals that's a pretty raw deal.

    Dungy won a ring 2 years ago so him being safe is no suprise either. 7 years, 7 playoff appearances.

    here maybe your answer
    Bob Kravitz: Dungy's a great man who has done well, but now it's time for a change at the top | IndyStar.com | The Indianapolis Star

    Its all about control and dungy follows in line. somewhat similar situation now developing with the jests.
    i always thought reid was unfairly criticized by rabid eagles fans and media. he has his shortcomings but has done a heck of job in the last 10 yrs.

    Bottom line:

    Because in Indy, the Franchise (otherwise know as Peyton Manning) likes Dungy.

    And it's all about keeping the franchise happy.

    No, it's because Dungy has "quiet strength" and Andy does not.............

    Philly fans are insane for their teams...Indianapolis fans are not.

    Actually-the big issues with Reid is his GM duties where he also has the final say in player personnel. While he's been a very good coach, he's been pretty subpar in recent years handling his GM duties, especially in the draft.(i.e. 2 potential future OL starters in Winston Justice and Max Jean-Gilles have been busts)

    To be frank-it's very difficult for any coach to handle this double duty. Look at Mike Holmgren in Seattle-once he got his GM duties stripped in '02, the Hawks started playing alot better. It's no coincidence.

    Why was Dungy not on the hot seat in November and Reid was? Seriously?

    In the preceeding 3 years, Andy Reid had missed the playoffs twice and it was looking like he was going to make it 3 of 4.

    In the preceeding 3 years, Tony Dungy had made the playoffs 3 times, had won at least 12 games each year and was well on his way to doing both again. Oh yeah, he also won a Super Bowl 2 seasons back.

    I think Dungy is a sanctimonious hypocrite but there is no way he should be on the hot seat.

    Pretty funny, IMO, but I can see a sensitive person complaining about it. You may just get the dreaded BAD REPUTATION.
