Andy Reid = many more years of opportunity, better QB play in almost every year... still no Superbowl. Not saying he's a bad coach, but not as good as Rex.
If he was the Jets coach right now, you would be bitching even more.
According to who?
Reid took over a 3-13 Eagles team who had no QB. Everybody wanted Ricky Williams. They drafted McNabb.
Reids first 4 years as HC of a bad Eagles team.
1998 3-13 Year Before Reid
1999 - 5-11
2000 - 11-5 won a playoff game... Eagles first playoff win since 1995.
2001 - 11-5 NFC East division champ, made it to NFC Championship game
2002 12-4 NFC East division champ, made it to NFC Championship game
2003 12-4 NFC East division champ, made it to NFC Championship game
2004 13-3 NFC East division champ, made it to Super Bowl
Rex Ryans years as NY Jets HC.
2008 - 9-7 Year Before Rex Ryan. Jets were what, 7-2 at one point in the season, Favre injured, Mangini did a poor job down the stretch.
2009 9-7 but we all know the Jets were an 8-8 team (Colts forfeited the damn game).... made it to AFC Championship game
2010 11-5 made it to AFC Championship game
2013 "Thought to be a rebuilding year?"
I'm a bit confused on what math and system you are using to say Rex Ryan is a better coach, player evaluator, etc compared to Andy Reid.
Reid took over a terrible Eagles team who went 3-13 the year before he was hired, and turned that team around in two years to go on a run where they won the division and made it to the NFC Championship game 4 years in a row. Even made a super bowl. You can say Reid choked in big games. You can say Mcnabb choked in big games. But McNabb was booed by fans when he was picked. So the truth is, Reid had every reason to not pick McNabb that year. But the reality is, the Eagles went from a terrible team in the late 90's, a 3-13 team to a super bowl contender every year.
Rex Ryan took over a team that went 9-7, he picked Mark Sanchez to be the franchise QB, and the Jets are essentially a .500 club with no division titles under Ryan. They've gotten a lot worse the past two years.
And now they are in rebuild mode. A team that was 9-7 the year before Rex becomes a 6-10 team in year 4 of Rex's regime and the idea is they have to start over and rebuild....I'm really confused on How that's a better coach, player evaluator, etc? ANd I don't like Andy Reid.
