Andy Reid still coaching Philadelphia Eagles after loss

This is the current temperature in Philadelphia:

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer tweeted Tuesday that Andy Reid will, in fact, coach the Eagles against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, per a team source.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Reid's future with the Eagles is not in immediate danger. A team source told Rapoport on Tuesday that the plan is to have Reid coach the team at least until the end of the season.

Still, Reid's future in Philadelphia has never faced this level of uncertainty.

Darlington: Falcons getting ready
While the rest of the world waits to see how the Falcons do in the playoffs, the team prepares, Jeff Darlington writes. More ...

The league's longest-tenured coach saw his team sink to 3-8 on the season following Monday night's 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers. This comes on the heels of the organization firing a string of business-side personnel this month, interpreted by some as hints of a looming house-cleaning.

It wouldn't be surprising to see the team part ways with their long-time coach considering the state of the organization, but owner Jeffrey Lurie might choose to wait until after the season to do so.

The Eagles haven't been successful firing members of their coaching staff in-season in 2012. Todd Bowles replaced the jettisoned Juan Castillo and the defense has only plummeted further into darkness. That decision is on Reid, and he might not survive it.
