The Philadelphia Eagles signed a three-year contract extension with current Coach Andy Reid, thus the coach will stay with the team through 2013 and may finally bring the Eagles to win their first Super Bowl.
The Eagles have plenty of reasons to keep Reid with them. Being considered a laughingstock in the NFL a decade ago, the Eagles entered the first season under Reid 3-13 and finished it 5-11. For the next season, they went 11-5 and made the playoffs five straight years. They also managed to appear in Super Bowl following the 2004 season, although losing the game to the New England Patriots by 24-21. Besides, he had Donovan McNabb put on Eagles jersey as the No. 2 overall pick in the 1999 draft, which turned to be a crucial piece in the rebuilding process.
As the winningest coach in team history, Reid still draws criticism from fans because he has not managed to help the team win a Super Bowl. But I believe as long as he keeps improving the team, he will make it soon or later.
