Reid Loses 5 Straight Games For The First Time.

Posted November 12, 2012

Are things unraveling yet in the minds of everyone or are there still some people out there holding out hope this team can defy the logic of their current norms? Andy Reid has lost 5 straight for the first time as the Eagles Head Coach. It's quite astonishing what has been happening this season under Reid's watch. Losing his first game after a bye week. His teams only 3 wins have been by a combined 4 points. His teams defense somehow getting worse after firing a offensive line coach as defensive coordinator. Nevertheless Jeff Lurie is going to allow Reid to ride this thing out. He's going to continue to let Reid play Vick even-though it has become painfully obvious there is no future with Mike Vick under center. No dynasties to be had. No Super Bowls to be won. No Mortal Locks in any way remotely attainable other than the team being a lock for mediocrity. For once this is a time where I would have loved for Lurie to have taken a proactive stance here, but instead he's allowed Reid to place his own selfishness over the future of the team. This team since Detroit hasn't been close in any of their games. If the players haven't quit already they surely must be close to it by now. This team is going nowhere fast. The only salvageable part of this terrible season in my opinion can be to find out if Nick Foles can play or not. Reid right now has no answers. 5 straight proves that. He can't make the right choice. It must be done from higher than him.  That means Mr. Lurie needs to do the right thing here.
