There have been 21 Philadelphia Eagles coaches since the team got its start, but who is truly the best Philadelphia Eagles coach of all time? Help us answer that question by upvoting your personal favorite Eagles coaches, and downvoting any that you believe brought the team down.
 
When Andy Reid coached the Eagles from 1999-2012 they went to the playoffs 9 times. Unfortunately they weren't able to secure a win in their  Super Bowl appearance vs the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX, despite quarterback Donovan McNabb throwing 3 touchdown passes for 357 yards. Other great Eagles coaches include Dick Vermeil (1976-1982) and Ray Rhodes (1995-1998).
