Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will meet with reporters at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and perhaps provide some answers to the questions lingering around his football team.

It's unusual for Lurie to speak to the media following the season, but his coaching staff has come under an unusual amount of scrutiny and criticism this season. It is widely expected that coach Andy Reid will be back, but no one within the organization has spoken publicly on the issue, so Lurie's press conference should provide some clarity.

If Reid is back, the next question will immediately turn to defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, and after that I imagine DeSean Jackson's name might come up.

There has been significant speculation about all of their futures, but no real answers. Tuesday should provide some insight.

Should the Eagles run like the wind to hire Steve Spagnuolo as their defensive coordinator?
Yes. Spagnuolo has a proven track record as a winning defensive coach.
No. Juan Castillo has earned another season.
Neither Spagnuolo nor Castillo should be the coordinator next season.
