Coach Reid: Eagles, 1-3, Dealing With More Injuries and Looking Within

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid today discussed yesterday’s come-from-ahead, 24-23 loss to the 49ers during his weekly day-after-the-game press conference.

After repeatedly blowing fourth-quarter leads, Reid says, it is time for his players to look in the mirror.

“I mentioned this after the game, each guy needs to take a close look at himself and I’ve got to make sure I’m looking at it even closer, because we are not finishing games like were supposed to finish games,” Reid said today.

If you are among those who think that, given these struggles, changes need to be made in the Eagles’ coaching staff, Reid says that’s not going to happen.

“The coaches are going to stay intact,” Reid said.  “But we go through and we evaluate everything.  We look at, and I look at, everything. But the coaches will stay intact and then we go from there.”

And the injuries on the defensive line continue to mount.  Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon is likely out for the season with a torn tricep, and defensive end Trent Cole has what Reid calls a “fairly significant” calf injury.

    Maybe if the team believed in integrity they would do well. But they have a coach who has 2 kids in jail and who walks the sidelines looking like he doesn’t know what he’s doing, and a ghetto dog-killing QB who pays people to help him look “reformed”. Yeah, real recipe for a winner!

    Reid says there’s nothing wrong with the coaches…well if they truely DO have the talent, then the problem certainly isn’t the players. Andy Reid has got to go!

    Philadelphia Eagles still have very good talent and it’s very unfourtunate that they are not clicking plus the Eagles in the most ever changing divison in the NFL:NFC East.
