Is Reid on hot seat heading into season?
Andy Reid has a record of 126-81-1 in 13 seasons as head coach of the Eagles.
But is he on the hot seat heading into the 2012 campaign? Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly thinks so.
Edholm recently listed for Yahoo! Sports
where all 32 head coaches currently stand, in reverse order of comfort, and "Big Red" came in at No. 32.
"There’s no question that last season’s disappointment, which was far worse than a deceiving 8-8 record, almost put Reid on the chopping block this January," Edholm wrote. "After a long deliberation with management and owner Jeffrey Lurie, Reid was given a reprieve and a chance to reverse his and the Eagles’ fortunes in 2012."
Edholm also wrote that the departure of Joe Banner puts added pressure on Reid to deliver this season.
"The ouster of team president Joe Banner in early June created a fascinating situation and tons of speculation about what that move actually meant relative to Reid. Lurie essentially sided with Reid, who felt that Banner’s negotiations actually hurt locker room morale, but in doing so the owner also raised the pressure on the coach."
