The Philadelphia Eagles are now losers of six-straight games after Sunday's 31-6 downing at the hands of the Robert Griffin III-led Washington Redskins. While no one knew what to expect during rookie quarterback Nick Foles' debut, a blowout loss wasn't an option.
However, as recently as three seasons ago, no one thought of the Eagles' Andy Reid as one to reside on the NFL coaching hot seat.
Fast forward to Week 11 of the 2012 season, and Reid might just be the first head-coaching casualty.
While owner Jeffrey Lurie has never fired a head coach mid-season, he won't wait long after the final whistle if he plans to go that route with Reid.
This one loss to the Redskins isn't necessarily the nail in the coffin for Reid. The Eagles' inability to improve upon last year's 8-8 record—coupled with Reid's failure to deliver a title after one of the most successful runs in NFL history—will be the head coach's ultimate downfall.
Though the Eagles remain one of the more talented teams in the NFL, the future of this franchise as it currently stands is uncertain.
With Reid being the one constant over his 14-year stretch, making a change at head coach is necessary to wipe the slate clean in Philly.
