Reid clueless on how to fix Eagles D

Finally, an interactive poll asks fans whether Andy Reid should be fired during the season. 12,493 people responded as of this writing. 59.6% say Reid should go.
Reid has faced ugly times before. In 2008, the team was 5-5-1 and people thought he could get canned. The Eagles rallied to make the NFC Championship. In 2009, the team was 5-4 before winning six straight games to get into the playoffs.
The hole is bigger this year. The expectations are greater. An inseason change is asinine; Reid has helped pull the Eagles out of the darkness before and he deserves the chance to do it again.
We can only imagine what the headlines will say if he fails.
