Philadelphia Eagles' coach Andy Reid said Monday that he won't resign because quitting on his team would be a "cop-out."
"I'm standing in front of the team and telling them, 'These are the things we need to do,' one of which is continue to battle," Reid told reporters. "And so I think that would be a cop-out. That's not how I see things. That's not the way I'm wired. We're going to keep battling and do it as a team. I'm not going to tell the guys one thing and then do the other."
The Eagles lost their sixth straight game Sunday. Reid will remain the Eagles coach for next weeks game against the Carolina Panthers Monday Night.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is on record as saying an 8-8 season would be unacceptable.
"He's a competitive guy, and nobody wants to win more than Jeffrey," Reid said Monday. "I would tell you he's disappointed. I would tell you rightly so. He feels the same way we do that we're letting people down in this city and so on. So, that's what I can tell you."
