Reid is the second longest tenured coach in the NFL, behind only Jeff Fisher of the Oilers/Titans. Since arriving in 1999, Reid has taken his Iggles to the conference championship five times, winning one, in 2005. The Eagles then lost to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
This, along with the four conference championship losses, has given Reid a somewhat dubious reputation around the City of Brotherly Love as a man unable to bring home the big one, and there's little doubt this deal will be roundly scrutinized at some point in the coming years, if not weeks.
