Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie made his annual state of the team address Thursday afternoon, prior to the team’s exhibition finale against the New York Jets, and said that another 8-8 season would not be enough to save 14-year head coach Andy Reid, Rich Hoffman of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
“No, it would not,” Lurie said.
Asked later about a spate of injuries or something like that, Lurie later said, “I’m not going to make blanket statements...I guess if two-thirds of the team is not playing, there’s always exceptions.”
But, he added -- several times -- that a repeat of the team’s 8-8 finish from 2011 would not be acceptable.
Lurie said that he would not even be considering a contract extension -- Reid’s current deal expires after the 2013 season -- until after the season is over. “I live to evaluate everything,” he said. “...I reflect and analyze afterward.”
