12:54 PM ET 11.19 | A day after the Philadelphia Eagles fell to 3-7 on the season, Andy Reid said that stepping down from his job as head coach "would be a copout." Reid's job security has come into question as the Eagles have fallen quickly from a promising start to the 2012 season. After beginning the year 3-1, Philadelphia has lost its last six games, including the last four by at least 13 points. The Eagles were manhandled on Sunday by the Washington Redskins, losing 31-6 and raising another round of speculation about whether Reid was in danger of losing his job.

But if you leave the Eagles now, Andy, you might still get a Santa Claus job at the mall.

Batteries not included.

Quit? And lose all that buyout money? He and the Eagles will come to an agreement, and then he'll step down for the good of the program.

Because Nick Foles was so much better.

He deserves to finish it out...

It was still worth giving him a look. Even if it was to do nothing more than to confirm what their best option is, if any

As an Eagles fan, my only requirement is that we don't look worse than the jets

I don't think the Iggles will ever sink that low.

Reid won't quit, he's got his family to feed

November 19, 2012  03:12 PM ET

Somehow he lost the Team, with the death of his son, you would have thought otherwise! Go Figure!

No he wasn't but it was his first pro start whereas Vick has years of experience. Foles could and probably will get better. Vick is as good as he'll ever get, which is bad news for the Eagles. Still, Vick has value as a tackling dummy so they can keep Foles healthy for the new coach.

Lot's of great QB's sucked swamp water in the beginning. Peyton leaps to mind. Not saying Foles can be great but at least give him a chance.

Why won't he quit? His team did.

November 19, 2012  09:54 PM ET

Ah, you guys are too nice. Now I just feel like a jerk.

November 19, 2012  10:16 PM ET

He won't have the chance to quit because he will be fired first.
