Is Andy Reid the Coach of the Year?

In his weekly mailbag column, John "The Professor" Clayton says that Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid deserves the NFL Coach of the Year award:

"Reid had the guts to trade [Donovan] McNabb to a division rival (he got second- and fourth-round picks in return) and built Kevin Kolb into a tradable commodity which he can afford to either keep or ship away," writes Clayton. "Reid made the Eagles' roster younger and was still able to be in position to claim the NFC East crown and either the No. 2 or No. 3 seed.

"But his work with [Michael] Vick is what puts Reid over the top. Vick was a franchise quarterback in Atlanta, but he was known more for his legs than his ability to work out of the pocket. Reid's coaching staff made him a complete quarterback who can beat a team from inside or outside the pocket."

I agree that Reid has played a significant role in the redemption of Vick, but I actually think Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has played a larger role in the quarterback's development as a complete player. Do you guys believe Reid has done enough to receive coach of the year honors?
