Giants defense sucks and our's is better though right?
and i'm not sure the 'he can't win a super bowl' theory. he was 'this' close in a game that the other coach was convicted of cheating in so i don't buy that. give him the right players and right situation he surely could win one.
anyway just because i thought it was interesting here are the numbers from the last 7 and 6 year periods that you have defined as mediocre. take them as you like.
7 years regular season: 11th in the NFL in total wins
7 years playoffs: tied for 6th in appearances with 4
7 years playoffs: 11th in wins
6 years regular season: 10th in the NFL in total wins
6 years playoffs: tied for 4th with 5 other teams with 4 appearances
6 years playoffs: 10th in wins
grant you not great and not earth shattering but i think it shows that reid hasn't lost as much on his fastball as some eagles fans like to think. and i would be willing to bet those 6 and 7 years are better than any other 6 and 7 year period in franchise history other than reid's prior years.
take it whatever way you like. just providing numbers because i said i would.
