Philadelphia Eagles fans seem to have reached their boiling point with their team, and in particular head coach Andy Reid. After a 3-1 start to a 2012 season that many expected to be a successful one, the Eagles have lost seven straight games. Michael Vick has been sidelined with a concussion, but he had played horribly before going down anyway. Sitting at 3-8 and poised to miss the playoffs once again, Eagles fans feel that now is as good a time as ever to break out the paper bags.
For the third straight week (at least) on Monday night, Eagles fans were wearing paper bags over their heads and holding up signs encouraging the team to fire Reid. One fan held up a particularly insulting shirt about Reid three weeks ago during the Eagles loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
During Monday night’s 33-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers, one group of fans took aim at Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie.
With two home games remaining on their schedule and a defense that looks worse than it did before Juan Castillo was fired, expect things to get worse in Philly. Marcus Vick may take some heat for making his brother look bad with the stuff he says on Twitter, but it looks like he has become the voice of the silent majority for what has become an abysmal Eagles season.
