Is Andy Reid’s Clock Running Out?

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – With most of the 2011 season still to play, frustrated fans are already vocally calling on the Eagles to fire their head coach. The Birds’ loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday was their fourth loss in a row, bringing the team’s record to an abysmal 1-4.

A small group of fans even set up a protest across Pattison Avenue from the entrance to the Nova Care Complex on Monday.

“It’s disgusting,” said John Rodio of Hammonton, N.J. who used two trees to hang a sign calling for Reid’s ouster. “It’s the same thing year after year.”

At his Monday press conference, Reid did not have many answers for fans when Eyewitness News asked him what he’d say to those who are frustrated.

“I completely understand. I understand that,” he said. “I think myself and the coaches and the players, we’re going to work our tail off to get it right. And that’s what we’re going to do.”

“‘Got to do better.’ Please,” said Paul Rodio, who was also protesting. “He just makes the same decisions every week.” The Rodios say they’ll be back week after week until the Eagles front office management gets the message.

Fans at nearby Chickie’s and Pete’s were not any more sympathetic.

“If guys don’t look like they’re showing up to play, it’s got to come on the coach,” said Chris Myers from Ridley Township. “Somebody’s got to go.”

“(It’s) awful. I don’t want to watch another game, honestly,” said Mike Moors from Collingdale.

“Andy Reid has to go. No doubt about it,” said Ellen Tenuto from South Philadelphia. “He’s a failure.”

    Perhaps for all sport teams that they should be paid ‘per performance’..and to eliminate the gross amount of money to play ball. … Andy and Jeff are losers anyway… sell outs with no moral compass whatsoever… to the dog killer, guess this activity pays you more.. they are all the lowest of low… a shame for Philadelphia, what an embarrassment

    GO STEELERS!!!!!

    why do the fans always blame Andy, it’s the multi-million dollar players vwho aren’t doing thier jobs. the players aren’t worth half the money thier getting payed. Maybe the players should get a pay cut when they don’t do the jobs they are being payed to do. they were called the dream team and play like a nightmare.

    real fans support their clubs through the bad times as well as the good times and the eagles don’t have a divine right to win or even get to the play offs every year. What do you think fans of other teams think when they don’t win games, they don’t all want to sack their coaches. Support your team.

    A bad year! Yea! So suck it up. We still won more games since 2000 than anyone in our division. I agree; this is a disapointment; but don’t let a bad year turn into a bad decade. Andy still has the latter part of the year to shine.
