Andy Reid: "I need to do a better job"

Andy Reid had no new explanations as the Eagles dropped their 3rd straight game

Rob Carr

The Eagles have lost three straight, they've fallen below .500 for the first time this year and generally look like a listless, hopeless mess. But with the wolves at the door, Andy Reid hasn't changed his tune.

"That was an embarrassing performance," Reid said. "We obviously didn't start fast enough. We didn't get off of the field on third downs early. We've got to be able to do that and then they got some big plays on us. We did not have big plays offensively. We started slow again, at least through the first few series there. I'm stating the obvious [that] we need to get better. I need to do a better job."

We've been hearing Andy said he needs to do a better job for, well, 14 years, but at least more often these couple years. And yet, here we are having the same conversations about the same things.

"This is fixable," he said. "This is fixable and we're going to get it right. That's hard for me to tell you that after a performance like that."

Frankly, I'm not sure what I want to hear Andy say. Do we want him to be Denny Green or Jim Mora? Would losing his mind at a press conference change anything? Would it even make us feel better?

Probably not, but it would be something new. And one way or another, it's time for something new.
