Has Andy Reid lost the Eagles players?

Mike Vick threw four interceptions in Buffalo.

It’s back to fundamentals this week for the Eagles.

Despite four straight losses — and a league-worst minus-10 turnover ratio — Andy Reid isn’t giving up on the season. And the coach insists that the team hasn’t given up on him.

“I think that the players are listening,” Reid said. “We’ve just got to continue to work our fundamentals and do the right things in practice, practice fast, and so on. Do the things that we’ve always done.”

The Eagles came into the 2011 campaign with unprecedented hype.

Now, sitting at just 1-4, people are calling for jobs and personnel shakeups following some very sloppy performances.

Reid said Juan Castillo is still his defensive coordinator, but he didn’t rule out any benchings this week.

“Well, I don’t know that. We’ll just have to see,” Reid said.

The coach also pointed out some positives from Sunday’s 31-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Remember, the Eagles’ defense pitched a fourth-quarter shutout, while the offense nearly rallied from a 21-point deficit.

“I thought the effort was good. I thought as the game went on we continued to get better in most phases of the game,” Reid said. “There are some good things we can take out of this game.”

Several Eagles players polled believe there is still time to turn it around and save the season. But how exactly does a struggling team do that?

“With a win,” said Juqua Parker.
