Report: Eagles Considering Hiring A Defensive Consultant

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that Andy Reid and the Eagles are considering the possibility of hiring a defensive consultant during the bye week. This would be a person would come in and work side-by-side with Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo to solve some of the defensive problems.

One of the names that has been floated out there is former head-hunting safety Chuck Cecil. Cecil would be a good fit in that job because he’s familiar with the “Wide Nine” defensive front. He worked under Jeff Fisher in Tennessee for the Titans, where he was the defensive coordinator.

He’s currently working for ESPN as a college football analyst and he hasn’t said publicly that he would or wouldn’t be interested in the job.

I think this is a good idea and should have been done at the beginning of the season, once the lockout starting eating up OTA’s and mini-camps. It was foolish for the Birds to put a rookie defensive coordinator in place after all the off season time was eaten up. Castillo didn’t have much time to work with his players and he didn’t have a great deal of time familiarize himself with his talent.

The Eagles signed numerous free agents then gave them to Castillo and expected him to make everything work despite this being his rookie season.

” It was foolish for the Birds to put a rookie defensive coordinator in place after all the off season time was eaten up. ” ….G. Cobb

No it was FOOLISH TO HIRE A OFFENSIVE LINE COACH AS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!

Andy Reid created this problem by trying to be a “Wil-E-Coyote super Genuis”

Just could not hire a an established, experience vetran coach. Look at Detroit. 2 former head coaches running the offense and defense. When Detroit’s 1st string and 2nd string QB went down last year, the offense did not miss a beat. That’s when I knew they were going to be good the following season, because of the coaching.

Andy Reid is an organizer, who picked a good original coaching staff, that has mostly blossomed on their own. He probably thought that he was responsible for all that success, when it was his coaches.

I remember when Dallas with Gil Brant began to think they could do no wrong and started drafting guys from Bozo University, because they were so smart. Andy’s limited success went to his FAT HEAD and his selection of Juan C. for defensive coordinator is the ultimate sign of his arrogance.

(bsmvideos) the Redskins are also a product of what happens when a “Great Coach” and his staff takes over a team….not to mention “THEY’RE NOT AS TALENTED AS THE EAGLES” and I still think Grossman is a fraud, and it’s still early, but your point is correct!!! Juan “CAFFINE” Castillo…..should be fired!! They’re saying bring someone in as a consultant? The man their talking about was the D.C for the TITANS…..just FIRE Juan and admit u made a mistake!! We have to be the laughing stock of the league right now!!!

Pulled out of Jeff McLane’s column today…”What if he thinks cornering the market on undersized white guys with beards is not the way to build an effective offensive line, and pushes to send Howard Mudd back into retirement?”… Wow Jeff McLane said what I was thinking when I was watching this line. Again Mudd and Washburn need to retire back to the Dirty South or wherever they come from. That 280lb center is so 1980ish. Who can he push on a short yardage play. Can you imaginve what Detroit’s line would do to our current line… now to this article. Andy is arrogant, and can be a hot head. I wonder where his boys get that from…

How about a drafting consultant also…
From what I heard on DNL last night we drafted a safety from Temple in the second round, that we still could have gotten in the fourth round, who can’t even see the field and can’t pick up the D.
– A 27 year old Guard in the FIRST ROUND!!
-An undersized MLB in the fouth round the proceed to name him the STARTER w/o even practicing!!

Firing Juan would be a complete disaster. If anything demote him which to me would be just as bad. Firing him would send a message to the players that there not the ones responsible for the product on the field.Im salty as anyone right now but it doens fit the mold of our organization to ditch a cord. right now. Agree or not we’re much better off bringin in a consultant and letting him work with Juan on some things.Beat Skins and go from there…

Personel moves to work this out…heard G say it so its not original but Allen and Coleman have to be the safetys,Id even put Jarret in the box over one of em in short yardage.Shake it up.

Bench DRC over anyone. He needs a flame under his body…not his rear….his entire body.Tired of hime letting that slant get under him. Your fast,show it.

Get Dion Lewis some touches early. He’s explosive and hits the hole. F Ronnie till Dallas…he deserves a benching for his b.s. fumble gainst Niners.

The line looked fine Sunday.WE CANT TACKLE!!!THATS WHY WE’RE LOSING DUDES.Plain and simple. The offense would be even better if it not for this b.s. scheme and players messing it up.

I don’t believe Jarrett is physically big enough to be an everydown Safety at this stage of his develment.. He’s smaller than Coleman and is really about 5’10 – 195lbs abnd not what his Bio lists which was good for Temple and the MAC Conference, but not in the NFL.. I think this was another bad pick and reach in the Draft..

Not to change gears.. anyone watch my man ILB S Tullock play last evening for the Lions who also run the Wide-Nine Scheme… A lot of people stated h his lack of height was a negative but all he does is make plays and tackles..
Hell, even Lions LB Bobby Carpenter was making plays at LB…

October 11, 2011 9:30 am

yeah Paul…you thought we should have signed him. Every time that dude makes a play you comment on him. We get it. Kirk Morrison woulda been good too.

I watched Jarret play a few times.He is a more physical player then Allen and Coleman .Doesnt matter his specs. He brings it,use him on short yardage over Allen. Coleman can bring it too. Allen is a complete safety when he gets right.

why would we sign him?? (facetious) we were busy signing a 5M backup QB, that we actually hope NEVER plays and a no.4 WR S.Smith….who barely sees the field.

This really needs to happen if the Eagles have any chance of salvaging their season. I have never seen a defence that is this lost and ill prepared.

Though I would prefer Sgt Hartman to whip these boys into shape…. What is your major malfunction……

Seriously this team and its fans are paying the price for Andy Reid’s arrogance in thinking he knows better than everyone else.

The time has come for Andy Reid to go. It’s not the playcalling. It’s not the time management. It’s not the challenges. It’s not the inability to get the right offensive play call in on time.

The fact of the matter is that Andy Reid has been there too long. He has lost the team. They have no discipline, no heart, no determination.

They are playing like one of his press conferences. Dull. He has lost the ability to motivate these guys. Both offensively and defensively, I see no swag. It looks like even Vick is starting to pack it in. He’s getting his a** handed to him every week and in the words of the great Ricky Watters……For who? For what?

Get Jon Gruden on the line and tell him to get his playbook ready. Andy’s passive-aggressive ways are not what this team needs to succeed.

He’s lost them.

If Paulman’s was the Eagles GM

Eagles would not have signed CB Asmo and would have relied on the starting tandem of Samuel & DCR and used Hanson as the Slot Cover CB and had Lindley/Hughes/Marsh battle it out for the final 2 spots

Eagles would have Signed ILB Tullock, and OLB Rocky McIntosh
I would have resigned Safety Q Mikell to a 2-3 Yea Deal since the Eagles already have 2 young,promising Safeties that they drafted in 2010 in Allen & Coleman on their Roster)

I would have drafted DT M Wilkerson in the 1st Round instead of Watkins, and selected a LB in the 2nd Round (D Moch,KJ Wright, K Sheppard,M Wilson) and not Safety Jarrett
I would have Signed DE Babin
I would have kept DL Hargrove & Landri along the DL and said bye to both Laws and Parker ..
I would have pursued Free-agent Guards (Blalock,Nicks,Joseph,Mathis)

But it’s all water under the bridge at this point, the Eagles have their Roster and their Coaching staff all in place and nothing is going to happen to after the Season> the Trade Deadling is Tue 10/18 but with so many teans right up to their Salary Cap level, I don’t anyticipate much player movement at all but I would love to see the rumor of Eagles dealing CB Samuel to the Seahawks for LB A Curry and a 4th Round Draft pick in return,,

Why does everyone think Jon Gruden is right for this job? I believe theirs only one person thats not coaching that can come in and make this work. Brian Billick! think about it, he brings discipline, he already worked with a QB like Vick by the name of Randall Cunningham and made him a complete QB, he won a SB with Trent Dilfer as his QB, think about that, TRENT DILFER, that shows he can win with half a team, of all the good coaches that are out there i think he would be the bet fit for this team.

The problem with the Eagles is a strategic problem…By this, I mean that we do not have a solid football man in the front office who can see the big picture, and make sure the right coaches are in place, and working together to accomplish a definite goal, which is winning a championship…Andy Reid has shown that he has ‘too much on his plate’ (not joking about his weight here) trying to be a general manager and a coach…He has been a disaster as general manager; a guy like Roseman is just a wannabe, one of Lurie’s friends, and has already demonstrated his inexperience by the selection of players, both in the draft and free agency, taken during the off season…I guess he was supposed to help Reid, but he is even more clueless when it comes to selecting players and having an overall philosophy of what the team should be…What we have now is too many cooks making the soup, and the result is garbage…There is no overall organization or team identity that I can see.

The Eagles do have some talented players, but they will never be used properly due to what I have mentioned.

Reid needs to go, Roseman, and all the yes men working for Lurie…And, certainly, a defensive co-ordinator with a record of success and experience is needed.

But none of the necessary changes will happen…Lurie is sitting on a money machine, and his bottom line is simply that: money…As long as the fans shell out for the obscenely overpriced tickets, parking and merchandise, nothing will change…Only a dramatic hit to Lurie’s wallet would force a change…Reid will most likely finish up his contract…I have no sympathy for “Big Red’: he is a multi-millionaire disaster.

Sports is just big business, and only a fool would invest ‘heart and soul’ in a sports team, especially one owned by Jeffrey Lurie.

My question is this?

Is it worth throwing away a season to give a failed offensive line coach time to learn how to be a good defensive coordinator?

Is he worth all that?

I asked a similar question when Matthews was given the starting MLB position without any competition.

Andy is starting to look like a damn idiot.

1) Let Dawk go with no replacement creating a weaker secondary.
2) Trade Sheldon Brown without a replacement
3) Name Kolb the starter without competition
4) Fire the defensive coach who trained under “JJ” after expecting him to succeed with the secondary Andy depleted.
5) Hire a failed offensive line coach to take over the defense
6) Pick a 27 year old fireman in the 1st round who could not beat waiver wire bums.
7).Let Stew and “Q” walk without adequate replacements
8) Start a 4th round slow linebacker with “0” instincts at MLB and move and set back an emerging Linebacker(Chaney) in the process. Destroying two positions with one decision.
8) Continue to bounce your young safeties up and down from the bench like musical chairs after poor performances knowing there’s not a replacement on the roster.

THIS TEAM IS AN ANDY REID’S MESS!!!!!

BANNER AND LURIE ARE NOT EXCUSED EITHER.

WHY DID YOU LET DAWK WALK?

There’s no leadership on this defense at all.

boy that Lions defense looked pretty dam good running the wide 9 last night… i wonder why… let’s see they had great Dline play AND phenominal LB production – eagles get great Dline play out of the wide 9 but the D sux, seems like a LB problem to me – the Lions LB’s were physical and covered very well, something we don’t get here in philly from our LB’s – also their CB’s were in mostly man coverage all night and that D stifled the bears on runs and passes – their DC has EXPERIENCE running the wide 9 and knows what’s he’s doing – wish we had that here and if there’s a coach out there with experience in the system they need to go get him asap – JC is learning how to use the system just the same as the players are, this isn’t HIS defense it’s 3 different schemes thrown together – the Dline, LB’s and secondary all have different things goin on and that’s why it isn’t clicking – Andy shoulda did whatever possible to get fisher to be DC for a yr just to groom JC for DC if he wanted him to be coordinator so bad – at least that woulda gave him a chance to succeed and us a chance to accept JC as a DC – Fisher is well versed in the wide 9 and how to run the back 7 behind it and coulda made for a great mentor and transition for Juan – but I guess andy was too worried about fisher taking his job instead of seeing the benefit and realizing it actually woulda cemented his job and gave ol Jeff a launching pad for a new HC job after coming off our SB run… hindsight is 20/20

as for this whole hater/apologist thing – its pure BS – that’s bullshit in case you didn’t get that the first time – its more like the no nothing ranters against the even keeled people – just becuase I don’t come on here (90 percent of the time) declaring things ‘Fire Reid’ ‘he’s ass’ and everything is the worst in the world (yet I am the one that is arrogant and I think I know everything) I was the one saying ‘let the season play out’ As a fan (according to the definition in the dictionary – a team supporter) I always hope the eagles do well, and I express that – for that you spread homophobic slurs (its not OK to be racist but it is OK to be homophobic – got to remember these GCOBB rules) and by not bashing everything about the eagles – just saying right now they suck – somehow, some whay I have apologized –

what dictionary do you use? There are all kinds of words used onthis site that have a whole different meaning then websters seems to imply (and yet I am the one that thinks he know everything and arrogant!)

As long as the Eagles don’t quit, I won’t quit.. but there is some a little good news as far as playoffs are concerned…

In the NFC, Giants (3-2),TB Bucs (3-2) , Bears (2-3) and Falcons (2-3) all lost which keeps the door open for the Eagles to battle for a playoff spot

The Eagles will most likely have to win the NFC East to have a shot, but they can start this week by beating the Redskins to move only 1-2 game out with 10 games to play.. There are only 7 Teams in the NFC with winning records right now and 4 teams are at 2-3 and 4 teams at 1-4 and then the Rams bringing up the rear at 0-4.
For as crappy as the Eagles have looked, if they can win the next 2 game versus the Redksins/Cowboys and move to 3-4, they would be right in the thick of things they way things are looking.. This is only hope I see to give them a chance to play meaningful games the 2nd half of the season but it starts with getting a “W” this week vs the Redskins, if not, it’s all over …

Paulman’s NFC Rankings after Week #5

#1) Packers (5-0) – The most balanced & well coached team in the NFC
#2) Lions (5-0) – Started slow last evening, but won the game remaining undefeated, the play a wide-9 scheme too, but have NFL Caliber LB’s..
#3) Saints (4-1) – Keep squeaking out wins and that’s all that matters
#4) 49ers (4-1) – Playing well and confident, Coach Harbaugh has got them playing some good Football
#5) Redskins (3-1) Good Defense and Running game, If they get good QB play, they will be tought to beat down the stretch
#6) Giants (3-2) – Eli back to blowing games in a bad home loss to Seahawks
#7) TB Bucs (3-2) – Layed a big egg on the road in whooping by the 49ers
#8) Cowboys (2-2) – As Romo goes, the Cowboys go.. (up and down..)
#9) Seahawks (2-3) – Huge win on the road vs the Giants probably saved their season, let’s see how they respond moving forward..
#10) Bears (2-3) – Defense is starting to age, no WR’s, poor OL…
#11) Falcons (2-3) – Blew a great opportunity to move up in home loss where they played the Packers tough in 1st half, then fell apart the 2nd half..
#12) Vikings (1-4) – Won first game , expect a lot of AP rest of season
#13) Cardinals (1-4)- Kolb is not a winning NFL QB, plays too scared
#14) Panthers (1-4) – Newton, Rookie of the Year, will be a tough out..
#15) Eagles (1-4) – Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda, have only beaten the 0-4 Rams
#16) Rams (0-4) -Have taken a step backwards in Year 2 of the Bradford era

Eagles have 11 Games left and 8 versus NFC Teams (5 NFC East Games and then Cardinals,Seahawks & Bears) and figure they will have to win the NFC East outright to have a chance for the playoffs.. It starts this week..

Fair rankings there Pman – the eagles earned there spot in the basement – true test for Reid and the team – crawl back into this – or probably be last season as HC (I think it will be a medical issue for AR) – I think he even knows it.

OUR PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ARE BUMS…..THIS TEAM WOULDBE UNDEFEATED WITH A BETTER COACHING STAFF.
IT’S TIME FOR LURIE TO PULL THE PLUG AND BEFORE THE FIRING THE PRESS NEED TO LET ANDY HAVE IT AT THESE PRESS CONFERENCES.

FOR YEARS THEY HAVE LET HIM GET AWAY WITH HIS SMUG ATTITUDE BECAUSE OF THE WINS BUT NOW THERE’S NO REASON NOT TO BLAST HIM AND MAKE HIM ANSWER QUESTIONS OR TELL HIM TO JUST GET OUT IF HE DON’T WANT TO ANSWER THE FANS QUESTIONS!!!!!!!

THE PRESS ASK THE QUESTIONS FANS WANT ANSWERS TO.

I remember Eskin challenging Charlie Manual publicly before their turn around.

Who in the press is willing to make Andy answer a straight question and if he refuse, cut in and tell him he’s not answer the question.

If he say he’ll give the answer he want to give….tell him that’s not good enough!!!!!!

If you’re going to say nothing don’t hobble your fat ass in front of us!!!!!!

I just wish that I actually did get paid everytime someone claims that I work for the Eagles. That would be nice. Instead, my paychecks come from an acutal job that has nothing to do at all with sports. Oh well.

Jake, ha, “Some fans are more enlightened, they can figure out that this coach will not only win…”

I see – you’re trying to point out that you and those who agree with you are smarter than the others, by boggling a statment trying to suggest that you knew they woulnd’t win.

But the haters (or call them whatever you’d like – the ‘enlightened’ fans – Songs, Dcar, Runtheball, Jake ..etcetc..) predicted doom before all the season that Reid DID win. They were wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong right….and now they say ‘we’re always right’.

FOOLS

Songs, you think it’s time? You should say so. And other fans should too. I think that if that’s the case, and that’s your opinion, than you and others should say it again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again (ctrl + v) and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again

becasue it will be productive, make a difference… and

The actual definition from Websters dictionary for the term ‘fan’ = an enthusiastic devotee an ardent admirer or enthusiast synonyms (Dboy/silky songs – whoever these are words that mean the SAME THING) include – admirer, fanatic, backer, supporter, booster, well wisher, advocate hanger-on –

do any of these terms at all apply to any of you – any of you – this isn’t an argument about what makes a good fan or a btter fan – its an argument about the ACTUAL DEFINITION of the noun fan –

now – antonyms (jakey chu for you enlightened types this means the opposite of fan) –

ready – nonadmirer – belittler – carper – critic – detractor – non-fan

the language thing most important here is in the use of the term non-fan –

the use on non is by definition – lacking the usual especially positive characteristics of the thing specified

wow – from Merriam Webster

so while you douche bags ‘think’ you are fans – I think it is pretty clear by the actual definitions of the words – you do NOT fall into the definition of a fan – you are in fact and by definition non-fans –
