The loss will only make Andy Reid's hot seat even hotter (I'm still amazed as to how that could be possible), and makes Eagles fans yearn for the end of the season.
Of course everyone has an opinion on the Eagles and Andy Reid's hot seat, as you can see when you just sign on to Twitter. On here you will find plenty of reaction to the Eagles' latest failures.
Of course not everything in this game was bad, as noted by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller during the contest:
It's like Andy Reid just discovered two weeks ago that running the ball helps protect your QB.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) December 3, 2012
This is true, as Bryce Brown did run the ball 24 times in this game; however, his fumble recovered by Morris Claiborne and returned for a touchdown wound up being the deciding points in this contest. This did inspire some anger from Eagles fans.
BRYCE BROWN LOST THIS GAME FOR US. SEND HIM TO AFGHANISTAN.— Quis Holiday the 1st (@tribecalledquis) December 3, 2012
Yikes, that's pretty harsh. Some responses about Brown's fumble, however, were of the humorous type.
Based on Bryce Brown, apparently the answer to "What can Brown do for you?" is "fumble." #SNF— NOT SportsCenter (@NOTSportsCenter) December 3, 2012
But games are won by the whole team, and most of the tweets attacked the Eagles themselves for their performance, especially the secondary.

As for Andy Reid's job, some reports state that Reid will be back in Philadelphia next year for one game when he coaches the Dallas Cowboys. That was already the source of jokes from around Twitter.

However, whether Reid goes to Dallas or not, many can't wait to see Reid go.

I hope andy reid gets fired— Tyler Kulp (@TK_SODA) December 3, 2012
One Tweeter actually volunteered to take Reid's job.
Packing my bags and heading to Philadelphia to coach them damn Eagles! #Pathetic— JWD ™ (@jdonnelly_20) December 3, 2012
Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald thinks that Reid shouldn't be fired because of the Eagles' poor performance, but because it would be for the best for both parties.
Andy Reid needs a change of scenery. Gone stale in Philly. No answers.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) December 3, 2012
Finally we end with a Twitter feed that managed to not only insult the Eagles, but also bring to mind one of Philadelphia's favorite sons as well as one my favorite television shows growing up.

Being one of the NFL's most popular (and at times most loathed) teams means the Eagles are easy targets when undergoing a hellish season. They certainly have stirred up the emotions on Twitter from both fans and non-fans alike, and will likely continue to be discussed for the rest of the season and offseason.
