“Fumbles have been a major issue, especially in crucial situations. Players continue to be careless and aren't securing the ball. "I think guys are just trying so hard to make a play," Vick said. "We know what we're capable of, we know what we can do. We move the ball up and down the field all game, and I think that in the moment guys are just trying to make the play and want to be the game-changer, want to be the guy making a contribution. And I totally understand, in our position we're desperate for a win. So you can't fault guys for giving 100 percent effort. "And I'll take that any day." At this point, effort simply isn't good enough. The Eagles desperately need a win. They'll play at NFC East-leading Washington (3-1) next Sunday. The Redskins are coming off a bye, so they've had ample time to prepare for Philadelphia. If the Eagles are going to turn their season around, it has to start immediately. They have no margin for error anymore. "There is plenty of time, it's the NFL," Jackson said. "There are 11 weeks left. As far as time, we've got plenty of time, man. That's not the issue; our time is figuring it out on our watch. There are plenty of games left." Reid's time could be running out, though it's highly unlikely anything would happen until after the season. He's had a lot of success in Philadelphia, leading the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles, five NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl. But Reid hasn't won it all, and that was the expectation for this season. Reid has an excellent relationship with owner Jeffrey Lurie and president Joe Banner. However, he's put himself at risk with several questionable decisions. The biggest was moving Juan Castillo from offensive line coach to defensive coordinator. Reid insisted that he's not going to make drastic changes, but sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that Reid has engaged in discussions with the team's hierarchy about the defensive coaching staff. According to the sources, the discussions centered on whether Reid should bring in a defensive consultant if the Eagles struggle this week in a key game against the NFC East-leading Washington Redskins. Philadelphia has a bye week the following week and Reid is seeking solutions that can help Castillo in his first year as defensive coordinator, the sources said. Reid did not reply to a message seeking a response relating to the discussions If they don't somehow find a way to improve and make the playoffs, it could end up costing Reid his job. "In the National Football League, your job is on the line every week," Reid said. Maybe even for him, too.
