My pal Bryan Armen Graham has an excellent overview of the Andy Reid era over at Sports Illustrated:

Yet Reid, who departs as the longest tenured professional coach since Connie Mack in a city where sports mean a little too much, leaves behind a legacy far more complex than Monday’s universally approved dismissal suggests. He’s the winningest coach in franchise history. He’s the losingest coach in franchise history. No one took the Eagles closer to the Super Bowl with greater frequency. No one was tripped up more often at (or near) the final hurdle. He was a genius and he was a dunce, often in the same barroom debate or sports-talk radio segment.

A great read, whether you’re an Eagles fan or not.
