Well if losing to the Carolina Panthers last night on Monday Night Football wasn't enough, then the news that was given to the Philadelphia Eagles this morning sure added to it. Head Coach Andy Reid announced during his Tuesday afternoon press conference that Jackson had sustained multiple rib fractures and will most likely be placed on the injured reserve today. It is believed that Jackson suffered the injury on a two-yard end around in the first quarter. Jackson finished the night with one catch for nine yards. He has been a huge disappointment this season, but so has the entire team. Jackson signed a five-year deal worth $51 million this past off season. He did not live up to the hype that he has surrounded himself with. Jackson ended up finishing his 2012-2013 season with 45 receptions, 700 yards receiving, and two touchdowns.  What a turn of events for the Eagles this season. There was so much hype that was surrounding this entire organization after the moves that had been made the off season before and now it has turned into one of, if not, the biggest disappointments in professional sports. It not only is a disappointment to Eagles' fans everywhere, but it is also a disappointment to Jeffrey Lurie who said that an 8-8 record would not be acceptable for this Eagles' team. The Eagles now have the worst record in the NFC at 3-8 and are currently the fourth worst team in the entire NFL. The best they can finish is 8-8. Will Lurie live up to his word? Many fans sure think he will. But does Reid deserve a mulligan for all the injuries that his team (most importantly his offensive line) has dealt with all season? According to Tim McManus, an Eagles beat writer for 97.5 The Phanatic, Reid will most likely remain the head coach for the Eagles this week against the Dallas Cowboys. We may not find out about the future of Reid until the end of the season, but we do know that the fire is starting to kick up on his hot seat. David A.
