It might be time for Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to be a little less supportive of Andy Reid.
Reid’s Eagles fell to the Panthers 30-22 on Monday night, pushing Philadelphia’s record to a disappointing 3-8. More importantly, the latest hiccup could cost the Eagles head coach his job — at least that’s what conventional wisdom and a ticked off Philly fan base will tell you.
Reid noted after the game, though, that no decision has been made as it pertains to his job status. While it could just be a matter of time before Reid gets the axe, Lurie apparently hasn’t discussed the matter with the Eagles’ head man.
“We haven’t talked about that,” Reid said after the game. “[Lurie has] been supportive. Obviously, he’s as competitive as anybody. He wants to win games. That’s why he’s in this business. But we really haven’t gone there.”
Well, maybe they should go there, as the Eagles have now lost seven in a row after starting the season off at a promising 3-1. Not only have this year’s high

After the Panthers dumped the Eagles on Monday night to drop Philadelphia's record to 3-8, coach Andy Reid's fate most likely was sealed. Before the season, owner Jeffrey Lurie made it clear that an 8-8 record was unacceptable, so even if the Eagles win the next five games, it seems clear that Reid will have to go.
Although the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane wrote...
Stick a fork in the Philadelphia Eagles, their season is finished. The team has given up and head coach Andy Reid looked like a defeated man at the post-game presser last night. The Eagles are a team mailing it in for the remainder of the season. Philadelphia is a team that in reality is four points from being winless this season. The Phillies have recorded a win more recently than...

Eagles fans are hilarious. One minute Reid’s the best coach in the world, the...

Coach Andy Reid confirmed that Nick Foles is likely to draw another start in Week 13. Michael Vick hasn’t passed the final phase of his concussion protocols. Either way, Reid admitted that it’s time to evaluate the Eagles’ young talent — even if he knows he won’t be around to coach it. Foles has a good shot at starting the final six games of the year as a tryout for the...
