After a month of silence, Eagles coach Andy Reid met the media on Tuesday and said he’s confident that the 2012 version of the Eagles will be better than the 2011 version.
And Reid said that included questioning himself about why last year’s “Dream Team” ended up being a .500 team.
“Why did we end up being 8-8, and why did we start off 1-4? Why did that take place? What can I do different during the new rules of training camp? [I examined] all those things,” Reid said.
Reid emphasized that “8-8 is not good enough,” and he said he expects to be contending for a title in the coming season.
“I’m not a very patient person when it comes to winning,” Reid said. “That’s why we’re in this business. We want to win every game. There’s no more pressure than there has been. That’s why we do this. We do it to bring a championship to the city of Philadelphia, to get the ring. That’s why players play and coaches coach.”
If the Eagles aren’t better than 8-8 in 2012, Reid probably won’t coach any longer.
