Clock ticking on Reid

LANDOVER, Md. --- There are 360 minutes of Eagles football left in this season.

What possible reason could Jeffrey Lurie have now to trust them to Andy Reid?

In a 31-6 loss to the Redskins Sunday, too many Eagles played with a lack of passion. They dropped passes. They failed to tackle with authority. Their offensive line sagged.

Reid's wail: “I don't think it is a lack of focus. I see them playing hard. I see them focused at practice. I think at times we may be trying too hard and you can't press them and make plays.”


At 3-7, the Eagles will not show the substantial improvement from their 8-8 finish in 2011 that Lurie said was necessary to avoid a coaching change. Now, they are playing that way. The fans deserve better.

Check out my column on and in the Daily Times Monday, along with some videos from FedEx Field and a story on quarterback Nick Foles' rugged start.
