08:01 AM ET 10.13 | The Eagles held a players-only meeting at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday, where the theme seemed to be rallying around Andy Reid. Reid, meanwhile, continued to shoulder the blame for his team's woeful start. He was asked if he still considers himself the right coach to lead the Eagles. ... "I take full responsibility for how we played, and we're all going to work hard and get better, including myself," Reid said. As the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Reid also is the chief architect of the team and its coaching staff. This is his vision. But it's turned into a nightmare, and with each loss he runs the risk of losing the support of his players. But that doesn't appear to be the case yet.

It's not his fault that the defense can't tackle anyone!

He has lost the fans though.

Check the lost and found on your way out of the stadium today Andy.

Maybe change is in order, starting with Juan Castillo ?

Andy hasn't lost the players. He knows they're here somewhere, probably under that pile of spaghetti on his plate.

As am I... I expect a close competitive game that will be decided by another Romo **** up.




Damn - did I say that?

Sounds like the starting of the NFL version of the Red Sox.

High-scoring shootout with the Pats pulling away in the fourth quarter. Let's see how Romo can do against the worst defense in the league.

Or maybe Vince Wilfork will pad his interception stats. I hope so. It's really fun to watch a Clydesdale try to gallop.

Hang it up? Hang what up? His spoon? No, anything but that.

I am a bit confused.....the Miami owner gives a "dreaded vote of confidence" in his coach and the media goes nuts about what that "means", and then the same site fails to acknowledge that this is just the same "dreaded vote of confidence" from the players....the fact they the players feel that the coach needs them to have his back means they realize the problem and are contemplating alternatives....if you think your coach is okay, you don't have a player's meeting to discuss the matter because there'd be nothing to discuss...

you notice that the Pats don't have meetings where the players talk about supporting Beli....
