Fans are calling for Andy Reid's dismissal more vehemently than ever. Assistant coaches are arguing on the sideline. A disgruntled star player isn't giving his best effort.

There's no saving the Philadelphia Eagles this season.

The best team money can buy turned out to be a whole lot of wasted dollars. All those big-name acquisitions the Eagles made in the offseason couldn't even get them back to where they were last
year.

The defending NFC East champions are 4-7 following a 38-20 loss to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots that wasn't as close as the 18-point margin. The Eagles aren't mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, but it's just a matter of time at this point.
