Embattled Eagles coach Reid has no plans to step down as Philly's year to forget continues

Andy Reid isn't quitting his job.

The Philadelphia Eagles have sunk so low that people are wondering if Reid will simply step down instead of waiting to be fired.

"I think that'd be a cop-out," Reid said Monday when asked about resigning. "That's not how I see things. That's not the way I'm wired. We're going to keep battling and do it as a team. I'm not going to tell the guys one thing and then do the other."

As the losses pile up and get worse each week, Reid has run out of explanations. The Eagles (3-7) have dropped six in a row. Even worse, they're no longer competitive.

A 31-6 whipping by the Washington Redskins wasn't as close as the 25-point difference indicated. The Eagles never had a chance Sunday against a team that also entered with a 3-6 record.
