3 Reasons Andy Reid and Eagles Coaching Staff Should Be Blamed for Lack of Wins

Andy Reid is on the hot seat as the Eagles sit at 3-5

The Philadelphia Eagles are currently on a four-game losing streak after their Monday night loss to the New Orleans Saints.

They sit at 3-5, tied for second in the NFC East, as they welcome division rival Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.

It is only the fourth time the Eagles are on this kind of losing streak; once in 2011 and twice in 1999.

It would be easy to put the blame on quarterback Mike Vick and his turnovers. However, this year the blame is on Reid and the rest of the coaching staff.

This time Andy Reid’s job is presumably on the line. According to ESPN, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said that he won't decide on whether to offer the 14th-year coach an extension until after this season. Yet, Reid doesn't seem fazed by Lurie's statements.

It’s not just Reid who is to blame, though. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is hurting the team by not letting LeSean McCoy rush the ball more than 20 times per game. Reid is also creating a disadvantage for the defense by having non-defensive minds in charge.

The Eagles are a very talented team, but the current coaching staff is making it hard for fans to see that.
