Someone (insert whistling noises here) reported over the weekend that Eagles coach Andy Reid eventually will face a dilemma that will determine his future in Philly: fire defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, or be fired.
Reid, according to various Twitter feeds and the eventual transcript the team will disseminate, said that he hasn’t been approached by anyone in the front office with that ultimatum.
But the report wasn’t and isn’t that Reid already has been told that, four weeks from now, he’ll have to fire Castillo. Why tell him now that he’s going to have to fire Castillo later?
Besides, why should anyone believe anything Reid says after Reid said last year that Kevin Kolb would remain the starting quarterback, one day before Reid gave Mike Vick the job? Reid would have no reason to admit that he has been told he’ll have to fire Castillo to avoid being fired, assuming that the front office decided there was a reason to let him know what will be expected with four games left in the season.
Reid did a nice job of non-answering the question and moving on. There’s really nothing else he could have said. So he basically said nothing.
