Eagles QB Vick has ‘pretty significant’ concussion
Question of the Day
Vick, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, has struggled this season with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. After a loss two weeks ago to Atlanta, Reid refused to endorse Vick as the starter, needing a couple of days before releasing a statement that there would be no change at QB. Reid knew that benching Vick and turning the offense over to Foles was a way to shake things up. It also could have been interpreted as giving up on the season.
This latest loss was another black mark on the season and time is running out to save Reid’s job. Owner Jeffrey Lurie put Reid on notice following an 8-8 season that he had to win big for a 15th season.
Fans are clearly fed up. In the final minutes of Sunday’s loss, fans behind Dallas’ bench unrolled a banner that read, “Andy, Quit, Your Team Has!”
Other ticked-off fans brought “Fire Andy!” and “This Is Not Acceptable” signs with them as they tailgated in the parking lots. There was at least one mobile billboard that read “Fire Andy Reid Now!!!” and “No Mas” with a pair of red Xs near the embattled coach’s photo.
Reid insisted Monday he hadn’t lost his enthusiasm for coaching the Eagles (“I love what I do”) and put a dose of positive public relations spin out there that a playoff berth is still within reach.
“You don’t count anybody out in the National Football League, so I’m surely not going to count this football team out,” Reid said. “I feel good about this team as a group and we just need to tighten some things up.”
He put has future in the hands of McNabb as a rookie in 1999 and that worked out great.
