Last year Philly had injuries everywhere. Vick, Jackson, their LT. All hurt. Also consider that his son died literally right before the season started. Pretty obvious that affected him emotionally and he wasn't all there.
Reid has only had 2 losing seasons this century. That's pretty impressive. Also 11th in playoffs wins while doing excellent work with a handful of QB's.
Of course Fox looks good now, and he's done a great job with your defense, but we all know he has nothing to do with the offense. Manning is playing the biggest role and Fox is in a great situation.
Fox plays not to lose, just like Marty. I'd rather have Reid's aggressive mentality.
Fox's last two seasons in Caroline were not good, but the fact is those teams were polar opposites of Reid's teams the last two seasons Reid was in Philly. Fox's teams were gutted with very little to no talent while Reid's teams were loaded.
We shall see what Reid is capable of doing soon enough but the fact is this article is claiming Reid is the better coach in the AFCW than Fox but with absolutely no proof. Reid has yet to coach a single game in the AFCW.
