Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles dropped the axe on the franchise’s most-winningest coach, Andy Reid, after a 4-12 failure of a 2012 season. Reid, though, led the Eagles to a 130-93-1 record and sported a 10-9 postseason mark, which included a tough Super Bowl XXXIX loss in 2005, during his 14-year tenure as their coach. As successful as Reid was, it was surprising to see him get the pink slip. Eagle grounded.
