He's been there too many years. Sooner or later you have to make a change regardless of how good the coach is. It's gotten stale.
I'm not sure if you thought you had a clever point here but the only blame you can lay on Lurie is allowing Reid to have that much control and staying so long. But again, multiple division titles, 4 conference championship games and 1 Super Bowl appearance can buy a coach a little longer leash.

He's not conferencing with the media every week talking about personnel and playing time. He hires guys to run his football operations and gets out of the way. Like a good owner would do.
Keep moving those goal posts.
Just an observation on my part, so you are saying that the HC had too much
As in you need to make decision's as an organization
or by committee?
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
