In Wednesday's Daily News, Les Bowen will offer his midseason grades by position for the Eagles. Here is his take on the coaching:
This team should be at least 6-2 right now, probably 7-1 and cruising.
The fact that it isn’t I put right at the feet of Andy Reid.
The shortcomings remain the same: Not enough balance in the offense most days, inability to adjust on the fly, poor time management. Reid deserves credit, of course, for assembling a group that might be capable of being 7-1, a youngish bunch that has a future, even if that future comes with Kevin Kolb running the show. For that reason, if the Eagles make the playoffs, Reid will get, and probably deserves, a contract extension.
