Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in August that the Eagles needed to be better than last year’s 8-8 mark or major changes would be in store.
And if the owner was serious in his preseason press conference, then this latest loss probably marked the end of Andy Reid’s 14-year career as head coach.
The only question is whether Lurie will pull the trigger soon or wait until this soap opera of a season has reached its finale.
“We haven’t talked about that,” Reid said in his postgame press conference. “He’s been supportive. Obviously, he’s as competitive as anybody. He wants to win games. That’s why he’s in this business. But we really haven’t gone there.”
“We’re going to keep battling,” Reid said. “I have to do a better job with that obviously by how we played here. I’m not worried about all of the other things.”
