That stated, are Reid’s present achievements sufficient to land him on the Mount Rushmore of NFL coaches?
Not fairly, when you ask Skip Bayless. He defined why Reid would not but belong on his Mount Rushmore of NFL coaches, and it has all the pieces to do along with his time spent in Philadelphia and the way a lot Bayless believes Reid has left within the tank.
“I didn’t fear him [during his tenure in Philly] because [the Eagles] never played high-level defense,” Bayless stated on Friday’s “Undisputed.” “They had some good defensive players on those teams … but I never dreaded having to play them the way I dreaded playing Dick Vermeil’s Philadelphia Eagles or Buddy Ryan’s Philadelphia Eagles because they came to play. They came to knock you on your tail, and they did.
“Andy’s groups have been all finesse. It was often all offense and a semblance of protection. … I most likely do not give him sufficient credit score for 10 years now in Kansas City — they are much extra on the sting of a dynasty than the Eagles look like thus far — [but] it is onerous for me to vault him onto the Mount Rushmore as a result of he isn’t that outdated … and he [has] bought a variety of soccer left. He might get there.”
A victory over the Eagles on Sunday would give Reid his 248th career win as an NFL head coach. That would leave him three wins shy of passing Landry and vaulting into the top four of career victories.
