The Philadelphia Eagles had a meltdown against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday which all but ended their postseason hopes. Everyone around the Philadelphia organization is clamoring for head coach Andy Reid to be fired, but the Eagles are not expected to pull the trigger during the season despite the team’s losing streak.
The only question remaining is whether owner Jeff Lurie pulls the plug on Reid sooner than later. At least one source said Sunday night that he expects Lurie to let Reid have every opportunity to turn the season around, even if that means that Reid coaches the remainder of the year.
“Don’t see it before we’re eliminated. [Probably] not till the season is over,” an Eagles source conveyed via text message Sunday night. While the source doesn’t talk directly to Lurie, he is aware of the relationship between the owner and the coach and said earlier this season that he’s confident that Lurie wouldn’t act capriciously.
Following the season, Andy Reid and Mike Vick’s time with the team will most likely come to an end, but Philadelphia fans may have to endure a few more weeks of the struggles that have haunted them all season.
