Andy Reid's legacy rememebered with cheers and jeers

Andy Reid's legacy remembered by's Bill Lyon.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid will more than likely coach his final game with the organization Sunday when the Eagles take on the New York Giants (1 p.m. ET on FOX) at MetLife Stadium.

For 14 seasons, Reid has been the headman of the franchise helping them to multiple postseason berths, five NFC Championship Game appearances and a Super Bowl visit in 2005.

However, as successful as Reid's tenure in Philadelphia was there will also be a "yes-but" after the discussion, writes's Bill Lyon.

Andy Reid's tenure will be recalled in part as the time of the big Yes-But. As in, he won more than he lost . . . Yes-But, he never won a Super Bowl. Or, he got the Eagles into the NFC championship game five times . . . Yes-But, they lost four of them.

Yet, despite all the frustrations surrounding Reid's leadership, which over the past few seasons has been questionable at best, it seems the 54-year-old head coach will leave on good terms with the fan base.

What is inescapably ironic is that at the time of his leaving Andy Reid may have more supporters than detractors. In a poll by this publication on the eve of Reid's last home game, when asked whether they would cheer or boo, more than four times as many fans said that they would cheer.

Entering his possible final game has head coach of the Eagles, Reid has compiled a 130-92-1 record including a 10-9 record in the postseason.
