After a 7th straight loss to a 2-8 team in front of a half empty stadium on national TV, the speculation that Eagles head coach Andy Reid may not finish the season has reached its zenith.
Prior to the season, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie stated that another 8-8 season was "unacceptable." Given that Monday night's loss was the Eagles 8th of the season guaranteeing they will not meet Lurie's standard, Reid was asked whether he has been assured that his job is safe until the end of the season.
"We really haven't talked about that," said Reid. "He's been supportive. Obviously he's as competitive as anybody and he wants to win games. That's what he's in this business for. But we really haven't gone there. I'm trying to get this football team to win games, that's what I'm trying to do. That's where my energy is."
Reid admitted that this much losing is just not something he's really experienced before.
"I'm not sure I have, as far as this many losses go. I'm not sure I have. But when you're in it, you have to fix it. I don't really care what happened in the past. I'm trying to get it correct right now, and that's the important thing."
