08:09 AM ET 08.31 | At the end of a disappointing 2011 season, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie made it clear that 8-8 fell well short of expectations. In case anyone misunderstood, Lurie confirmed his opinion of an 8-8 record on Thursday night during his annual state-of-the-team news conference before the Eagles finished their exhibition season against the Jets. He used that word again: unacceptable. ... Lurie said he didn't want to make blanket statements -- having made one -- and that all decisions will be arrived at calmly and analytically after the season, but he also said the four magic words when asked if another 8-8 season would be good enough to keep Reid as coach. "No, it would not," Lurie said.

Must be an enormous chair.

Guess I don't see the news in this. Andy Reid would probably agree that back to back 8-8 seasons with the talent they have on that team should be grounds for getting fired.

You heard the man, Andy. Better go 9-7 this year.

Get that tummy-tuck done while you've still got health insurance, Andy.

And take it easy on the salt, too.

As a Giants fan, I think Andy is doing just fine and deserves a contract extension.

Yep-- typical philly results... their fans are content to be 8-8 or make it to a playoff game, they couldn't care less if they win the playoff game or not... Keep on keepin' on andy!!

Bush is Right....what a buffoon you are!!! Typical know-it-all who knows nothing!! Chump!!

The Eagles are losers just like their classless, clueless fans. I hope fat Andy continues coaching there for another twenty years.

You can add Bill of the Patriots to that list as well as it relates to the Giants.....he's no different, same deal, same results. Bill has and always will come in second when its comes to the Blue baby!

BTW, this is just what Andy needed and wanted to hear after a terrible loss this offseason. Thank you so much, Jeffrey. The humanitarian award is in the mail.
