    • It's not the scheme... the scheme worked earlier in the year vs. Washington (first time), Carolina and Indy


    • Knew what the Eagles were going to do going in-- "run to the left"


    • Guys have to be accountable-- just can't treat them as "friends". Need to treat them as "co-workers"


    • Have too many "talkers" in the locker-room... can tell before the game how the defense will perform. If there is a lot of "talking" before the game the defense doesn't seem to play as well


    • Guys are thinking "too much" and not going out there and just playing on defense


    • The Probowl should be boycotted... several deserving players not going

    I thought the implied statement that we have too many "talkers" on defense and that that some guys are talking "better" than they are playing is very indicting to the defense.

    Still trying to figure out the "talkers"
    I know one is Spears.
    Another is probably Canty.
    Wonder who else?

    Must be talking about Bradie James. He's the only one that talks in interviews.

    James is a smart guy though.
    He doesn't usually come across as a cocky trash talker.
    Now he hasn't played well but I don't think of him as a "talker".

    So, is this the time to divide a lockerroom with these comments?
    Is this what Bill would want Newman to do?

    The timing is for these comments is suspect in my opinion. Newman might want to look in the mirror. He is not without fault.

    Neman is the best player on defense.

    He might be the most consistant. I wouldn't say that he is the best.

    Newman is correct with his assessment because it's time to just play "football" and stop all the excuses and talking!

    So, why doesn't he talk to his teammates first?

    He said it was very hard to even take a shower last night as sick as he was about the way they played.

    He also made the comments Mike touched on that I put in another thread... That some guys talk it up great but don't seem to get that you have to do it on the field.

    Said that he was disappointed about the Pro Bowl, but that he tried not to let it bother him because he got a lot of respect from players around the league who told him what a good player he was. He said every week players tell him how well he handles his business, and even yesterday Lito Sheppard told him he got robbed.

    As far as comments dividing the locker room, Newman is always very careful to be very P.C. and defend his teammates. One reason I don't usually post comments from his show is that they are kind of bland, actually. This was the most revealing thing he's really said so far, but even then, he didn't name any names. So it's not like he was throwing anyone in particluar under the bus.

    man.. to hear this from our best player on defense...

    could Newman tell this to the players themselves and become our defensive leader? he has the results to back it up

    He should still keep quiet and not pull a "Strahan". If he has someone in mind he should tell that player or players and leave it at that. Whenever the a ship starts sinking there will be those that look to protect the officers. Just shut up and do your job.

    I think another VERY telling remark is that players are thinking too much.

    I think the point is that Newmann can tell even before kick-off how the defense will play. Its completely clear there is no leadership in that lockeroom who can direct some of the "talkers" energy onto the football field.

    Who would you say, Ware? Maybe, but Newmans certainly right there with Ware. Nobody else even comes close. For my money, I would say Newman is the most consistant and best player on our defense.
