    ****Has the decision to make Juan Castillo the Eagles’ defensive coordinator already failed?

    yes..

    yes it has..

    Has Andy Reid’s inability to identify talent in players and coaches been evident for years??

    yes, yes it has.

    That touchdown pass, Rodgers to Driver, after he came back in. Amazing.

    LOL @ Shockey. He’s just mad that he spent the first three quarters chirping after every play only for his team to lose.

    Seriously, at least twice, when a teammate made a play, he ran up next to his teammate and started trash talking the Bears player like he was the one who did it. Can’t remember the last time I saw that in the NFL.

    Even after putting up 540+ yards against the Bears defense, we still get beat by the Devin Hester show. That flag against Shockey was complete BS! The flag didn’t even come out until after he scored…

    Shockey got robbed. Simple as that.

    “WR Doug Baldwin is making the Seahawks look smart for giving him a chance.”

    Baldwin is awesome. Very precise route-runner who catches anything thrown near him, and has shown the ability to hang on to the ball in spite of big hits.

    With Rice showing why Seattle paid him all that money, Williams showing some signs of returning to his form of last year, and Baldwin as a #3/slot guy, Seattle has assembled a pretty decent corps of WRs. The big guys on the outside are commanding attention, and Baldwin is making the most of his opportunities.

    Anyone out there interested in trading for Golden Tate? Baldwin is making Tate a luxury. I’d call Baldwin the steal of the draft, but of course, he was undrafted, and mostly ignored by teams looking for camp-fodder UDFAs….including by his former college coach Jim Harbaugh.

    That first INT by Campbell should have been a touchdown run by him the middle of the field was wide open, I know Pryor would have ran into the endzone, but that turn over seem to take everthing out of the raiders and gave pats a spark!!!

    Andy Reid is always trying to out smart the competition and this time he out smarted himself by moving his offensive line coach to defensive coordinator.Castillos defense couldn’t stop a high school team.McDermott did a better job with alot less talent and with a far worse defensive line coach.If your going to fire McDermott you better hire a defensive coordinator who is alot better than Castillo like Trygovac or Winston Moss from Greenbay.

    Umm Reggie WINNING usually helps you get that feeling. Just sayin’

    The Juan Castillo-defensive coordinator experiment failed even before the lockout took place!!!

    O-Line coach to def. coordinator, what a joke!!!

  11. axespray says: Oct 3, 2011 12:58 PM

    Driver is still one of the toughest players in the game…

    Seeing him comeback in the 2nd half after hurting his leg, inspirational….(imo)

    “The Dolphins are suffering from a severe lack of playmakers.”

    Yet for some reason, they thought bringing in Reggie Bush would change that. The entire state of Lousiana could have told you different.

    Reid’s time should be finally done. People cant figure out how Marvin Lewis still has a job in Cincy after 9 yrs. The bigger question is how Reid still has a job. Atleast Lewis gives us low expectations. Reid hypes his teams up, then lays a massive egg, 12 yrs straight. He will NEVER win a Super Bowl, so give it up Eagles fans.
