Fans react to Reid being sacked

Posted: Updated:

It appears Andy Reid will no longer fly with the Eagles.  Although the team has not confirmed the move, many sources familiar with the situation said Reid will not return as head coach.

At the popular Susquehanna Township Eagles bar, Mr. G's, many fans said they saw it coming.

"I thought that it was about three years overdue," said Richard Keller. "Football coaches are like principals and ministers. After so long, they need to move because people don't hear them anymore. And I think he lost the team, they don't hear him anymore."

Other Eagles fans said Reid has dropped the ball as of late.

"We need to move on," said Candace O'Donnell. "We're not getting any better, we're getting worse at this point."

But that still doesn't make change easy.

"It's sad because he's done a lot for the program," said O'Donnell.

"He was a great coach for Philadelphia, he's got one of the best records in the league," said William Sarris, Captain of Mr. G's Eagles Fan Club. "Andy Reid's tenure was 14 years. Anybody coming in has big shoes to fill. I would like to see Jon Gruden."

"Go after Chip Kelly from Oregon...try something a little bit different," said Keller. "Another person I really wouldn't mind seeing in Brian Billick. He won the Super Bowl when he coached for the Ravens."

Some fans believe it's not just Reid who needs to move on.

"Just not Andy Reid, players as well as the whole entire coaching staff...the culture needs changed," said Keller.

Fans don't think this is the end of Reid's career. Some predicted he will coach somewhere else, while others said he may take on an executive role, like being the general manager of an NFL team.
