No matter what scheme Bill Davis runs for the Philadelphia Eagles, the first order of business in regards to fxing this abomination that we call “the defense” is to completely overhaul the secondary.
The Eagles need four new starters in the secondary next season. Nnamdi Asomugha, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman should be either cut or demoted this offseason based on how they’ve played the past two seasons.
Whether it was the coaching, a dysfunctional mesh of personalities or they just simply are not good, these guys could not communicate on the field with each another and their pass coverage routinely suffered disastrous breakdowns.
Seriously, how many times did we hear about communication issues in the secondary between 2011 and 2012? It has been a constant issue. In 2011, we wrote it off to the fact there were new players, new coaches and a new scheme.

in order to even consider it, according to Rob Maadi of The Associated Press.

After the Philadelphia Eagles were blown out in their season finale, and Andy Reid was fired, Michael Vick blasted his Eagles teammates for “quitting, and their lack of desire.”
Vick I assume thought his time with the Eagles was over, and he was just fed up with the lack of heart around him. Fast forward about a month and a half.

It was reported last night by USA Today that sources have told the paper the Kansas City Chiefs would be interested in acquiring quarterback Nick Foles this offseason. This morning, Comcast sports is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have no interest in trading the signal caller. Well, all NFL teams lie and they like to lie a lot at this time of the year.

Either Chip Kelly really likes quarterback Nick Foles, or the quarterback play in the NFL is that mediocre, that the Eagles can ask for anything they want in a trade.
Sources tell the Associated Press that the Eagles reportedly want a first or second round pick to even consider dealing Foles.

Even the commentators seem to spew forth at the mouth while forgetting the history of the players up for grabs.Is it just...
Alabama has interviewed several candidates this week to replace offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, who accepted the same position with the Philadelphia Eagles last month.
