The Eagles season is over.

Will Andy Reid's tenure in Philadelphia be next?

The Eagles reached rock bottom with an utterly uninspiring 21-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in which they failed to hold onto a fourth quarter lead for the fifth time this season. They now own a 3-6 record and have almost no shot of reaching the playoffs.

Based on the way Reid's team has played for mos of the season they have no shot. Quarterback Michael Vick was wretched for the second straight game. Juan Castillo's defense was soft. DeSean Jackson was benched for missing a team meeting on Saturday.

Should the Eagles have played DeSean Jackson against the Cardinals even though he missed a meeting on Saturday?
Yes. This team needs all the help it can get.
No. He needs to be an example for the young players.

Has there ever been a team with so many expectations that failed to live up to them?
