Reid says Eagles just "off a little bit"

Coach Andy Reid says he still believes the Philadelphia Eagles can turn their season around.

The Eagles were sloppy and battered in a 28-13 loss to New Orleans on Monday night. They failed to score a touchdown in five trips inside the red zone and Michael Vick was sacked seven times.

Reid says the Eagles need to make a few changes and they will get back to winning.

"Right now we're off a little bit. When we straighten that out, it doesn't take much. The margin between winning and losing in the National Football League is very small. We're going to make sure that we tighten up a couple things and get them right and then we'll start winning football games."

Reid also says he's not worried about owner Jeffrey Lurie's preseason decree that the Eagles need to win big this season to save the coach's job. The disappointing Eagles won the final four games of last season to finish 8-8, and gave Lurie a reason to grant Reid another season. At this rate of losing, though, Reid may not return for Year 15.
