With the Philadelphia Eagles loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, December 1, the team is now guaranteed to not have a winning season. At 4-8, the best the Eagles can hope for is to finish 8-8. This will be just the fourth time of the Andy Reid era in which the team didn’t finish with a winning record. Here is a look back at the failed seasons for the Eagles during the Andy Reid era.


The Eagles entered the 2011 season with a ton of expectations. The Super Bowl talk quickly died down when the team started 1-4. After making a little run to get their record to 3-4, the Eagles have dropped four of five games. To make matters worse, the team is just 1-5 at Lincoln Financial Field in 2011. Unless they win the final four games, the Eagles will finish with a losing record.


The 2007 Eagles won their final three games to finish the season with an 8-8 record. The late rally spared the team an embarrassing final record, but the season was doomed early. The Eagles started off 0-2 but rallied to get their record to 5-5. Just when it looked like the Eagles would make another run, the team dropped three straight games. Two of those came at home to the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Giants.


The Super Bowl hangover stung the Eagles bad in this disastrous season. After losing the season opener, the Eagles won three straight. However, it was all downhill from there. The Eagles lost eight of their last 10 games in 2005. With injuries mounting, the team turned to quarterback Mike McMahon in the middle of the season. The Eagles went a woeful 0-6 against division opponents.


The first year of the Andy Reid era saw the team finish with a 5-11 record. The Eagles started off the season with an 0-4 record before finally winning their first game in Week 5. After a 3-11 start, the Eagles finished the season with two straight wins. That helped the team set the tone for a strong run to start the 2000s.
