08:08 AM ET 06.11 | With Joe Banner out, Andy Reid is now more the boss in Philly than ever. what is less clear is whether the front-office shake-up has pushed the clock forward on Reid's tenure here or given him even more time. If he wins the Eagles their first Super Bowl this season it won't matter. But odds are he won't - and what happens then? One thing is certain: Reid has been different this offseason. His answers still aren't illuminating, but you can see an increased effort being made with the local media. He's been available, accommodating, and ubiquitous. It's almost as if owner Jeffrey Lurie, more image conscious than ever, went to Reid in January and said, "If I'm going to keep you long-term, you have to improve your relationship with the fans and the media."

Tenure is tenuous.

"Where did this Andy Reid come from?" My guess is an all you can eat buffet.

So he can no longer chase around kids saying "get in me belly"?

He's ubiquitous because his vast bulk is spreading. He can be at two Golden Corrals at the same time.

That's not Hell. That's the basement of the NFC East. And if Michael Vick misses more than a game or two to injury, that's where these Eagles are headed.

they spent a 3rd round pick on a QB who the experts say "would thrive in a run first offense" and then they gave a mountain of money to a RB in a pass on every down offense.

no way that was andy making those moves.

Who are they going to beat to finish in third?

I think Banner resigning is a cover up. Andy ate him.

The key for the Eagles has and will continue to be M. Vicks healthy.
