Furnace blower issue

I have an Armstrong PGE10 outdoor package unit that I would guesstimate to be about twelve years old. Today it seemed chili in the house (last night was below zero and today's high was in the teens). I checked the thermostat and the temp had fallen to 65, though the thermostat was set to 70. The furnace wasn't running, so after having no luck tinkering with the thermostat I flipped the breaker off for about ten seconds then back on. The furnace kicked on, and the air was warm but barely coming out of the vents. I went outside and pulled the cover to check the blower. It was running, and seemed to be running at a good speed, but clearly running slower than usual based on the slow airflow. I also visually checked the burner which appeared to be working fine. I crawled under the house and everything looked ok with the ductwork. Also worth noting, if I turn the heat off and switch the fan from auto to on, it won't come on at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure you have already checked but is the air filter clean?

Yes, sir. I forgot to mention in my post that I checked it and it's clean.

Will the fan normally work in the 'fan on' mode?

No, the fan won't run at all in fan mode.
