Whether or not Andy Reid should be on the hot seat in Philadelphia is being debated more seriously than ever today following the Eagles’ loss to the Seahawks on Thursday night, a loss that dropped the once-dubbed “Dream Team” to 4-8.
The Lincoln Financial faithful serenaded their team with chants of “Fire Andy” during last week’s loss to the Patriots in Philly, and we can’t imagine they’re much more pleased now, following not just a loss, but a 31-14 loss, a loss to the Seahawks.
But if Jerry Jones has anything to say about it (he doesn’t, of course), Reid will remain the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Jones gave the Eagles’ coach a windy vote of confidence on Friday during his appearance on 105.3 The Fan.
“Now, Andy Reid is one of the best football coaches, period, anywhere,” Jones said, via ESPN Dallas. “And he’s in the prime of his coaching career. I know they’re down on him now, and he set it up with high expectations. … He set it up with high expectations and it hasn’t worked out. It just doesn’t work out the way you have it mapped out on paper. That’s just the way it is, but he’s an outstanding coach and, man, has he been formidable for us throughout the years.”
Jones went on to say that, regardless of their record, the Eagles remain a concern for him; this probably has something to do with the 34-7 drubbing the Eagles put on Dallas back in week 8 at Lincoln Financial, arguably the only instance of the Eagles playing up to expectations all year.
“Boy, when I look at the game we played against them, I know what they’re capable of,” Jones said, “and I’m scared to death of them when we play them here.”
