The firing of Juan Castillo as the Eagles defensive coordinator has generated a lot of response from around the football world.
Former Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel is one of those weighing in. Samuel was traded to the Falcons this offseason with reports after his departure indicating that coach Andy Reid believed Samuel’s play was in steep decline. On Twitter Tuesday, Samuel wrote “ain’t no decline over here” just after another tweet that shared his thoughts about Reid’s decision to shake up the coaching staff. Let’s just say that Samuel thinks the wrong guy has been asked to turn in his keys to the office.
Sometimes you have to blame yourself. You can't try and always point the figure at someone else—

Reid might have fired the offensive line coach he chose to coach the defense, but he won’t have many other places to point the finger if the Eagles don’t start winning games. And that will likely mean that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie decides to start doing some finger pointing of his own.
