Reid: We Can Get This Turned Around

Head coach Andy Reid has "seen enough glimpses" of just how good this team can be to decide against making any drastic changes.

The Eagles are 1-3 and have lost three straight. Reid has been down this road before. He understands the widespread disappointment that fans feel around Eagles Nation on this Monday after the 24-23 loss to the 49ers.

"After watching last three games, I understand fan frustration," Reid said. "We're going to work hard to get better. We have the players and coaches to turn this around."

Entering the Monday night game, the Eagles have the fourth-best offense in terms of yards and 16th-best defense. The Eagles have been able to build leads in each of the past three games and carry them into the fourth quarter. But, for some reason, the Eagles are unable to close the deal.

"I'm in the business of finding the problems and solving the problems," Reid said. "Each guy needs to take a close look at himself and I need to look closer because we're not finishing games."

Reid said that the three coordinators (offense, defense and special teams) will remain "intact." Specifically asked about first-year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, Reid added that Castillo will remain the playcaller on defense.

"I think Juan's doing some good things," Reid said.

The Eagles have two road games (Buffalo, Washington) before the bye week which is followed by a rare trifecta of home contests.
