    The Eagles fired Juan Castillo after two consecutive fourth quarter collapses. I guess his fate was sealed after holding the Lions in check for three quarter then changing his scheme up in the fourth when they got torched.

    Reid talked about "maximizing potential" and they weren't doing it on defense.

    Yesterday I posted about accountability. Good thing for Joe D he isn't the Eagles Special Teams coach and instead resides in the safe warm blanket of Cowboys Stadium.

    It's not about Bowles, it's about shaking up the organization to prevent further damage

    Nest step is Reid will take over play calling.


    I will make this prediction and bet. I predict the Eagles beat the undefeated Falcons in thier next game. I bet a 2 week ban. Any takers??

    Now is the time for the, "See, this is why Philly is better than us because they're not afraid to make a change mid-season to better their football team. Jerry would never do this and that's why he's a terrible owner/GM."

    ....hmmm...well...uhhhh maybe there's some truth to it afterall!

    I woke up and my wife told me that the coach for the eagles got fired... I was like wow! Andy Reid?? Then she pointed out it was the defensive coordinator...

    Andy Reids been on the hot seat for a while now, but he is an amazing coach.... I was super excited thinking he got fired cause I could just imagine him here in Dallas.

    and would people here complain as they do in Philly they don't run the ball enough? Their short yardage has sucked?

    My wish would be that Castillo is landing on a flight from Philly to DFW, to join the Cowboys coaching staff as an assistant OL coach, freeing up Callahan to game plan and call plays. If for nothing else, he has to have some inside information we could use when we play the Eagles this year.

    And he's right. Nmamdi is excellent in press coverage and had him shut down. He's not good in zone--so Juan goes to a Tampa style cover 2. Why?? They had the Lions down by 10 with 5 minutes to go. You can't lose that game.

    I think the NFL stopped that when the Pats picked up Josh McDaniels for the playoffs. Castillo would have to wait till next year.
