A 30-22 loss to the Panthers before a nationally-televised Monday Night Football crowd -- and maybe more importantly, the home fans at the Linc -- won't exactly help Andy Reid's chances of coaching at the start of 2013.

But it seems increasingly likely that he will finish 2012.

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, sources say that Reid will coach Sunday at the Cowboys, the first of a two-game road trip.

Eyeing up the schedule, it's tough to find a sensible spot for Lurie to make a switch before the end of the season.

Couple that with the fact that Lurie let both Rich Kotite and Ray Rhodes close out their final seasons, the odds of Reid being held to ultimate accountability for his team's now 3-8 record, seven-game losing streak and abominations like Monday -- the team had four penalties in an eight-snap span that cost them two first downs, one that led to a touchdown that should've made it a two-score game, the other giving the Panthers a freebie after an offensive holding penalty that prompted Reid to start using timeouts just before the 4 minute mark -- are unmistakably low.
