Default Was Frank Reich really the problem?

A lot of us didn't like him as OC, we cheered when he was fired. Now he's 3-0 on a Philly team drafting plays for a rookie QB. They aren't afraid to let the rookie air it out. Where was this imagination as the Chargers OC? Why didn't Rivers get to air it out. Two word answer: Mike McCoy.

not only does he not call the plays but

"Once the play is given to Reich, he will not have the ability to change the call. Allowing Reich to change the plays would only slow down the process."

Ok, so you're proving my point. A head coach making strong plays to help a rookie QB win. So you think Frank doesn't have anything to do with Wentz's development?

Yes Frank was the problem, but so is McCoy, Pags, and Spanos. This team is 1 injury away from being worse than the Browns.

he had different responsibilities here. i.e. more responsibility. He sucked. As does Mccoy. Jury is still out on Philly. They have started well. Absolutely demolishing Pitt was a huge win. The first 2 wins don't tell me much (Chicago and Cleveland).

I don't know what your point was. Can a team be successful even though Frank Reich is a coach on that team? sure.

Was Reich to blame for the offensive performance the last 2 years. I think he was definitely a huge problem.

Actually, I think the real question is why has the Chargers OC, whether Reich or Whiz vs. the Colts failed to call plays to keep the opposing D off balance? Against the Colts, Whiz called Gordon up the gut way too many times, where he was stacked up, instead of sending him outside.
