I'm feeling you on this one. Even if they make the Playoffs - which means they MUST win the division, due to the overall strength of the NFC
- the Powers-that-Be in Philadelphia, might decide that Enough-is-Enough ... and move in another direction, in regard to the head coach and staff.
and that would be the dumbest thing in eagle history. They will revert into a non relevant team...
Unless you have a crystal ball how do you really know? It's quite possible Jeff Lurie could land a Harbaugh type guy for their next coach.
Stranger things have happened. I didn't say I wanted it to happen ... my stating that "I'm feeling you on this one"
, was/is, another way
of saying, I can relate to your point of view. Marty Schottenheimer went 14-2 in San Diego, and STILL got CANNED. Anything is possible.
How long do you think Jeff Lurie will continue to be patient ... how many seasons has it been to date? Again, not advocating this move,
just understanding that it is not as a remote an idea, as you made it seem. I listen to 97.5 The Fanatic, with some regularity ... the mood
in Philadelphia with regard to Andy Reid, is more in line with this:

Add to the equation, that many a fan' Love Affair with Vick is So OVER. This is not a recent sentiment I speak to. IMO, Michael Vick,
bought Andy some time - a reprieve so to speak - however, the Honeymoon in the City of Brotherly Love is over and done with, as far as
that city and most of it's fan-base are concerned.
Consider this if you will ... how long, do you think our beloved Eddie D, would have put up with Bill Walsh, had he amassed a similar track
record to that of Andy Reid'? As an ex-Falcons coach was known to say the NFL, stands for Not For Long
... especially in today's game,
when it's all about the Super Bowl ... after a while, just winning here and there, just isn't enough.
