With the Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) out of playoff contention, it seems that the 14-year tenure of Andy Reid here in Philadelphia will be over sometime this season, whether during it or afterwards. Who will replace Reid in the City of Brotherly Love, however, remains up in the air.
According to reports by CSNPhilly’s Reuben Frank, however, have former Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden, winner of Super Bowl XXXVII, as a potential suitor. According to Frank, Gruden was “impressed” by the Eagles practice squad, saying, “These guys are football players.”
It’s hard to take much stock in a comment like that, but at least it shows that ESPN’s MNF commentator is interested in taking over. Here in Philadelphia for Monday’s game against the Panthers, it’s nice to see he would take the time to come down to the NovaCare complex and meet with Juan Castillo and other Eagles coaches.
Whether he’d be the right fit, however, is not as clear, seeing as he ran the Tampa Bay Bucs slowly into the ground after winning the Super Bowl in his first season.
