McLane wrote that LaMonte said, Lurie “has stated again and again, any time that I’ve been with him, that was as long as he’s the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles Andy Reid would be his coach,” LaMonte said. “And I’d say the proof of the pie is in the pudding. He’s been here 14 years.” Just last season Lurie was clearly upset with how poorly his team played.  He certainly acted like Reid could be out of a job soon, if things don’t get turned around.
