Eagles fans deserve job status report on Andy Reid

Eagles owner needs to address the job status of Andy Reid

Andy Lyons

The time has come for Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to talk about the job status of head coach Andy Reid, Philly.com columnist Bob Ford believes.

Just hours before the Eagles visit the Dallas Cowboys for a Sunday Night Football showdown (8:20 p.m. ET on NBC), Ford wrote the time has come for answers not questions.

"No amount of fool's gold is going to change what has already transpired, so the owner should stop the clock, do his oh-so-careful analysis, and then come out of hiding," writes Ford. "If he really cares about Reid, then Lurie should either support him or let him go."

The 3-8 Eagles are heading into a prime time NFC East contest without their starting quarterback, Michael Vick, starting running back LeSean McCoy, and No. 1 wide receiver, DeSean Jackson, and the end result could be highly embarrassing.

Ford, however, believes what could be more embarrassing is how Lurie has handled the job status of Reid, which he's failed to address since the beginning of the season.
