Time for Lurie to come out of hiding

The Eagles' season had been over for about two minutes. That's when owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman raced toward their locker room in a golf cart, jumped out, entered and began something even more significant Sunday: The offseason.

Lurie has been shielded from questioning all season, but is expected to be available Monday to discuss the firing of Andy Reid ... and where the Eagles will go from there. The decision was first reported Sunday by Bob Grotz on

After a 42-7 loss to the Giants, Reid sounded ready to accept his professional fate.

“Whatever he chooses will be right,” Reid said. “He has always done what is in the best interests of the Eagles.”
Reid would like to be back. “I'm all in,” he said. But he knew he was to meet sometime before Monday morning with the owner --- and that his Tuesday schedule would not be so cluttered.
Check out my column in the Daily Times Monday, along with a look at what might have been the final Eagles game of Michael Vick. And, as always, check out for complete Eagles coverage, including several videos from the locker room.
