Please, Please Let Andy Reid Be The Next Coach Of The Cowboys

The Times Of Trenton has the scoop on a possible Andy Reid destination this off-season—forget the Chargers—and it is a doozy [emphasis ours]:

According to an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, the long-time Eagles head coach could be the head coach of the archrival Cowboys next year.

Of course, that is all based on Reid being fired by the Eagles, which is expected, and Jason Garrett being let go by the Cowboys, which isn't quite as sure, but certainly could happen if Dallas does not make the playoffs.

"I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening," the source said. "But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired."

If Reid does get fired by the Eagles and hired by another team, it would follow the same path as the past two Eagles coaches, who were also terminated under Jeffrey Lurie's ownership. Rich Kotite was fired after the 1994 season and took over the Jets in 1995. Ray Rhodes was fired after the 1998 season and took over the Packers in 1999.

It didn't work out so well for either of them.

So, all that needs to happen for Andy Reid to become coach of the Cowboys is Andy Reid and Jason Garrett both getting fired? The Extremely Reliable Source may be talking out of his ass, but if he's guessing right—and he's been "hearing Dallas" a lot, so it's hardly fair to call it a guess—that means Andy Reid would be calling the shots on a Tony Romo-led team. And that team would be the Cowboys! We may have a veritable derpocalypse on our hands.
