The Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid had a decision to make last week, he made the choice to stick with Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and now his team is 3-5 on the season. Reid could very well be coaching in his last season with the Eagles. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie made it perfectly clear before the season started, Reid and his Eagles had to win football games this year, he said 8-8 isn’t going to be good enough. Even though Reid fired his defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, Philadelphia still couldn’t stop the Saints from marching over Michael Vick in the game last night.
Vick was sacked 7 times by the New Orleans Saints. The Eagles couldn’t avoid the mighty pass rush the Saints brought into the game and many are now left to wonder if the might offense Michael Vick once brought to the Eagles is a thing of the past. The fans are also wondering if Andy Reid’s head coaching position will become a thing of the past also. The Eagles are pinning themselves into a must win a situation. Reid has only 8 games left to produce a winning season for the Eagles and with only 8 games left time could be running out for him and Vick to remain in the city of brotherly love.
The Eagles offense has struggled all season with Vick lining up behind center. The Eagles one time explosive quarterback has lost 5 games and lost the football multiple times this season. Turnovers are always costly in the NFL and this season Michael Vick has protected the football very well and he isn’t protecting his head coaches job very well either. Can the Philadelphia Eagles pull themselves together and produce a winning season at this point? It looks to be next to impossible with the way Michael Vick is playing currently. Andy Reid may want to put his résumé together now.
