Head coach Andy Reid said all the right things in the press conference following Monday night's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He accepted the part of the blame that falls directly on him and the rest of the coaching staff, while indicating that the team must do a better job of executing as well.
Postgame interviews are as close to scripted as you can get.
What is interesting, however, was Reid's insistence that the mistakes the Philadelphia Eagles continue to make are correctable. When asked why the same errors are made on a weekly basis, Reid was only able to reiterate that things can be fixed.
Reid is correct: Mental lapses, overthrown or underthrown passes, costly penalties and being more mindful of taking care of the football can be all be corrected. But when the same things preventing this team from consistently winning continue to happen, something has to give.
