Lurie – Reid Has to Do Better Than 8-8 to Save His Job

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie made his annual state of the team address Thursday afternoon, prior to the team’s exhibition finale against the New York Jets, and said that another 8-8 season would not be enough to save 14-year head coach Andy Reid.

“No, it would not,” Lurie said.

Asked later about a spate of injuries or something like that, Lurie later said, “I’m not going to make blanket statements…I guess if two-thirds of the team is not playing, there’s always exceptions.”

But, he added — several times — that a repeat of the team’s 8-8 finish from 2011 would not be acceptable.

Lurie said that he would not even be considering a contract extension — Reid’s current deal expires after the 2013 season — until after the season is over. “I live to evaluate everything,” he said. “…I reflect and analyze afterward.”
