Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie threw down the gauntlet regarding coach Andy Reid on Thursday. In a statement that was both obvious and unnecessary, Lurie said that Reid would be fired if the Eagles go 8-8 again this season.
We expect this quote to be repeated often if the Eagles are hovering around .500 at any point after the first quarter of the season. It's one more thing for Reid to answer, but he handled the remarks just like you would think on Thursday night after the Eagles' final preseason game.
At what point this season do the Eagles implode?
Do they do well enough for Reid to keep his job for 2 more years?
Or do the Giants, Redskins, and Cowboys agree to throw 1 game each to ensure 5 more years of division success?
