Want to know why Andy Reid never won a Super Bowl during his 14 seasons coaching the Philadelphia Eagles?

Former Eagles star cornerback Asante Samuel has a theory because he witnessed it first-hand. It all relates to how Reid treated legendary Syracuse quarterback Donovan McNabb. More precisely, it’s the fact Reid let McNabb do what he wanted and didn’t hold him to a high enough standard. Samuel would know about execution as a guy who won two Super Bowls under Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
