The "Fire Andy" chants were a bit more subdued Sunday, a product of approaching Hurricane Sandy rather than the product Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid put on the field in a 30-17 loss to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons.
This storm will pass by midweek. Reid's future here has a bit more staying power, although ownership has forecasted a regime change after 14 seasons if this 3-4 Eagles team fails to make the playoffs.
"At this point, we're not thinking about that," Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha said. "We're thinking about playing for the postseason. You can't say it's early in the year anymore. It's midway. We should be doing better at this point. . . . It's embarrassing."
Reid also called this performance in what could have been a statement game for the Eagles "embarrassing." This was the debut of defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who took over after Juan Castillo -- who had been with the Eagles for 18 years in various capacities -- was fired before the bye week.
