LeSean McCoy, as dogged a player as any on the Eagles, stood at his locker and asked where the team left its pride, its heart.
And coach Andy Reid even tossed out “embarrassing” as the word of the day for Philadelphia’s 30-17 loss to Atlanta on Sunday.
Was it really eight years ago when Reid and the Eagles beat the Falcons in the NFC title game in front of a stadium stuffed with euphoric fans and not ones chanting “Fire Andy” during the worst loss of the season?
This latest loss was as bleak as it gets for the Eagles and Reid is running out of time to salvage the season — and his job. Owner Jeffrey Lurie put Reid on notice following an 8-8 season that he had to win big for a 15th season. Reid knows if the Eagles continue to spiral from a 3-4 start toward a double-digit loss total, Lurie is prepared to make sweeping changes from his coach down to his quarterback.
