PostSubject: Eagles owner calls 8-8 season 'disappointing and unacceptable'   Wed Jan 04, 2012 4:19 am

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is angry and disappointed. But he doesn't plan any major changes in the front office after an 8-8 season fell far short of high expectations.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and coach Andy Reid will return next season, Lurie announced, but any changes on the coaching Cheap NFL Jersesys staff will be completely up to Reid.

"Everybody is accountable for this season," Lurie told reporters Tuesday. "If I didn't think next year would be substantially better, then I would be up here announcing a coaching change."

While Lurie won't personally make any coaching changes, many of the questions he faced were focused on embattled defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. Reid's decision to put Castillo in charge of the defense was scrutinized throughout a season in which the unit struggled after several big-name additions.

Lurie called Castillo an "incredibly impressive man" but stands behind whatever decision Reid makes.

"We've had lots of talks about every aspect of the organization, and now it's up to Andy to make those decisions," Lurie said. "He has the final say."

Dubbed the "Dream Team" early on by new quarterback Vince Young, a moniker the team couldn't escape from, the Eagles had high expectations after adding cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, running back Ronnie Brown and Young.

Lurie called the season "extremely disappointing and unacceptable," given the additions. He doesn't anticipate any contractual cheap jerseys changes for Reid, who has two years and $10 million remaining on his current deal.
"Every year the goal is to win the Super Bowl," Lurie said. "We'll let the process play out. There are no ultimatums."
