Philadelphia—The Eagles are a mess right now. Their record is 4-7 after a blowout loss at home to New England. Their fans want their Head Coach Andy Reid fired.
Read how the Eagles players are reacting to questions about their latest loss and the season so far:
WR Riley Cooper
On whether Sunday's game has had the chance to sink in yet: "I don't know. I said it yesterday, what kind of separates the good from the great is being able to kind of let go of what happened yesterday and move forward. So it definitely hurts but you have to move forward and you have to move on, you have another game coming in three days so we have to be ready."
On whether the team's morale is bleak: "Yeah, it's definitely an uphill climb. But yeah, as a whole, as a team we all still believe and we just have to take care of business."
On whether it was difficult for him to be ready and be an impact starter after not playing for two weeks before that: "It wasn't hard. I mean, I was up for the challenge. I was up for the task. I came into the league wanting to be a starter. So like I said everyone's time comes and you just have to make the best of your opportunity. And I don't know what the deal is this Thursday, but if I'm the guy I'm ready to go."
WR DeSean Jackson
On whether it's tough to prepare with just four days between games and traveling to the West Coast: "Really, it's kind of one of my first times I've experienced something like this. So I'm just taking it on the run. But every day we'll just come in to work. We leave on Wednesday, so it's a quick week and we just have to be ready for it."
On whether everybody on the team has the mentality that they have to win out to make the playoffs: "Yeah, I mean I think as a team we're all focused on what we need to do; just go out there, we have five games left, and give it our best effort regardless of our record or anything and just go out there and play hard. So that's our mindset."
On whether he thinks having a short week will help forget about the tough loss to the Patriots: "That's the next game ahead of us Thursday, so that's all we're worried about. We're not worried about anything behind us, we're moving forward and we're just going to go out there and try to win the game."
TE Brent Celek
On whether he has talked to Jackson or his teammates about that situation and what he says about it: "I mean, just tell him to stay positive, and keep working hard, and things will hopefully work out. There's nothing else to say. It's between him and coach."
On what the inside perception of the team is while the outside perception is that the team is falling apart: "Well if you're winning games all that stuff is by the wayside. When you lose, you start nitpicking on those little things, where normally you wouldn't talk about [them]. Winning cures everything, and we haven't done it lately."
RB LeSean McCoy
On rebounding after a tough loss to the Patriots on a short week: "It's tough. We're trying to get the loss out of our system; it's a whole new week [and] we have to prepare like any other week. So it's a little different but we still have a shot of making something out of our season."
C Jason Kelce
On how much having a game on Thursday helps the team to get over the loss: "Yeah, I mean, it helps us get over the loss that much quicker, because we have to. Whenever you're on a short week you're battling two things, it's mental preparation, and you're battling physically getting over the game you just got done playing. So, those are the two things that we're going to try to take care of."
On what he thinks these last five games will show about the team: "These last five games? I think they'll show the character. Whenever you're facing adversity, or whenever you're put in a situation where it's tough, you don't know what the outcome is going to be for the year and everything else. I think true character. Everybody can play when you're up and when things are going well, but when you're backed into a corner, when you're down, that's when true character shows."
DT Cullen Jenkins
On his thoughts about the diagnosis on his thumb: "It's bruised up pretty good. I have a couple stitches in it. So it's just sore right now."
On whether he thinks he will have a problems playing on Thursday: "I don't think so, I mean, besides the pain. I'm sure it will be painful to play with but, you know, it's just one of those things."
On his thoughts about what he saw today from the team that makes him think they can rebound: "You know, just everybody being mentally tuned in today. It was a big mental day for us in a short week like this. And it's not too much physical, we just have to get real tuned in mentally. You know, nobody's throwing in any towels and we're ready to keep fighting and keep this thing going."
On his thoughts about the morale in the locker room: "You know, obviously after a loss like that it's still quieter, people are frustrated still, but I think our team still has pretty good morale and we know we're a good team. We have a quick opportunity here to try and get this thing turned around."
