You can look at the Eagles' 34-10 win over the Redskins a number of ways but two stand out:

A sign that the team had turned things around with a four-game winning streak to close out the year and finish 8-8 or as a meaningless end to a season that got off to a horrible start, had several other low points along the way and was ultimately a season of missed opportunity.

Andy Reid preferred the former. When a reporter asked the Eagles coach another question presumably about his future and that of his coaches and players he interrupted and said, "I think it was a heck of a game, thanks for asking."

As for answers to the questions about his future, they will have to came at another time. Reid said, "I haven't even thought about all that."

Andy Reid blows it again, and we relive 2011.
The new coach uses the season to get settled.
I’m still too depressed to think ahead to 2012.

Asked when he does plan on thinking about whether he wants to return for a 14th season in Philadelphia Reid said, "I'll think about it when I want to think about it."

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was not available for comment after the game. The team said he will meet with the media some time this week, likely to announce Reid's return.
