I'd fire GM Howie Roseman before I sent Reid packing.
I think we, of all fans, should know it doesn't take a lot to put together a decent line. In 2010, we had Brown, Smith, Myers, Brisiel, & Winston, considered the best line in the league when it was all said & done.
That said, personally I don't know that we can say the Eagles OL is horrible. Can't think of his name, but they had an undrafted rookie running all over the place the other night. Seemed like whatever back they put back there was getting the job done. That normally says OL to me.
As far as pass protection goes, I don't think Vick was doing them any favors. A problem you've got with a "mobile" QB that ad libs, is you don't necessarily know what angles to take & hold & for how long.
Then you put a rookie back there, most teams will sell out to test him under pressure. If he can't beat them consistently, they keep it coming.
That line may be terrible. Just saying I haven't seen enough to make that conclusion myself.
