As the Eagles prepare to play the Cowboys today, with not much to play for besides pride, a report came through Mark Eckel of NJ.com that Andy Reid could be on the Cowboys sideline next time these two teams face each other. As quoted from his article, Eckel had this to say about the matter:
According to an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, the long-time Eagles head coach could be the head coach of the archrival Cowboys next year.
Of course, that is all based on Reid being fired by the Eagles, which is expected, and Jason Garrett being let go by the Cowboys, which isn’t quite as sure, but certainly could happen if Dallas does not make the playoffs.
Eckel’s source also had this to add:
I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening. But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired. I think Andy would be a good fit with the Cowboys. I feel he would get along fine with [Cowboys owner] Jerry Jones. It would be the two of them working together, no middle man to get in the way.”
If Big Red does end up in Dallas, it is almost guaranteed that he would become the most hated figure in Philadelphia sports history.
