National Football Post: Andy Reid is safe

Nnamdi Asomugha knows dysfunctional teams.

The National Football Post's Dan Pompei says Eagles head coach Andy Reid will stay on the job next year unless ownership forces him to change his coaching staff.

(Reid already changed  his staff Dan.)

I don't think Pompei knows how bad it is for Reid, reduced to attacking the NFL Network for the way it portrayed diva wide receiver DeSean Jackson and the dysfunctional Eagles. Big Red won't survive this season unless he makes the playoffs or gives up every last ounce of influence he has, plus his company parking place.

Here's Pompei's take. Keep in mind Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post used to negotiate contacts for the Eagles.

*No matter what they chant at the Linc or how badly the Eagles play, it appears that Andy Reid is safe, according to those who are close to the situation. There appears to be only one scenario in which Reid could be let go: if Eagles ownership tries to force Reid to make a staff change he does not want to make (hello, Juan Castillo), Reid could refuse and put the target on his own back.

I wish someone would tell it like it is...Since the passing of the Jim "The Great" Johnson. Andy Reid has been out coached. They fired their defensive coordinator from last year, only to see things fall apart completely this year. Plain and simple until Jeff Lurie starts getting hit in his pockets, we the fans will be stuck settling for second best. And yes I say second best, 13 years and only one trip to the dance, come on...Always the bridesmaid, but never the bride. Give us Jon Gruden!!!!
