The question put to Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid after his team's sixth consecutive loss was rather pointed: Does he expect to stay in his job until the end of the season?
The answer was evasive, yet telling, because basically all Reid offered was something about ''got to get ready'' for Philadelphia's next game.
Yes, the turnovers and the penalties and, most importantly, the defeats keep piling up for Reid's Eagles, as do the doubts about his future with the club.
Rookie quarterback Nick Foles' first drive as a starter in the NFL ended with an interception. So did his second. The Eagles turned the ball over three times in all, committed nine penalties, allowed Washington rookie QB Robert Griffin III to complete 14 of 15 passes with four touchdowns and lost to the Redskins 31-6.
''I don't know how it can get much worse,'' Eagles tight end Brent Celek said, hands on hips. ''It makes me sick.''
