Why will it be different here?
I don't know that it will but if you have not read some of EagleRob's posts about the politics of the FO of Philly these last 2yrs you may want to read them. Quite interesting insight and not all of it was Reid's fault. And it correlates with what Caplan said on 610 earlier this a.m. IMO, I think 2 things happened this last year as well that were huge aside from the FO politics: 1)Reid's O-line was decimated this last year which means Vick is getting hit and injured and running for his life making more errant throws than ever. 2) The passing of his son. I think the season became a "blur" for him emotionally and he lost his focus not being able to reign in Morningwig to get Shady the ball more often.
Adam Caplan was interviewed this a.m. on 610 with Danny Parkins and Caplan is a HUGE Eagles Fan and supporter of Reid but not to a fault though because he was very objective saying that one of Reid's biggest errors was not keeping up with continuing to bring in good assistants like he had been doing most of his 14yr career. This past 2-3yrs he dropped the ball on that aspect.
