Dick Vermeil is beloved in Philadelphia.
As the coach who turned the Philadelphia Eagles into a playoff contender and beat the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship in 1980, Vermeil will always have a place in the hearts of Philly sports fans.
But what about Andy Reid?
The longtime Birds coach may be coaching his last home game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
Reid has suffered through his worst year as coach as the Birds have stumbled and fumbled their way to the finish line this year in a season marred with injuries and inconsistencies.
Fans have wanted Reid's head over the past few months as the team faltered from a 3-1 start. Team owner Jeff Lurie said that last year's 8-8 season was unacceptable.
So, if Lurie fires Reid at the end of the season -- as everyone expects -- how will he be remembered down the road?
After all, Reid is the greatest coach in Philadelphia Eagles history.
He has led the team to a Super Bowl against the New England Patriots in 2004 and to five NFC Championship games, including four straight from 2001-2004.
During his 14-year tenure, Reid has the best win total, winning percentage and total playoff wins in franchise history.
Reid just may need a change of scenery. Who knows, too, he could win a Super Bowl elsewhere, which would kind of add insult to injury.
Philly fans want someone to come along and get the Birds back to their winning ways.
But will the team ever find another coach like Reid?
So, on Sunday, instead of booing Reid, it might be right to tip your cap to him for taking this franchise to its greatest heights.
No one can take away Reid's accomplishments, no matter this terrible season. And that should be his legacy.
