We all know that the firing of Andy Reid did not have much to do with the team’s performance in 2012. I mentioned that the Eagles ‘ playoff losses in 06 to New Orleans, the NFC Championship Game in 2008 to Arizona, and in 2010 to the Green Bay Packers all factored into this decision.
Right now, though, to look at 2011. The Philadelphia Eagles won their final four games to finish at 8-8. Of the eight losses only two were lopsided. Winning just one would have given them the NFC East Title since their record within the division was 5-1. Might the Eagles have done what the New York Giants did in 2011 instead. Allot can hang on just one or a few plays. Andy Reid would still be with us.
