PLAYERS: Andy Reid
TEAMS: Philadelphia Eagles
As the Dream Team disintegrated to 4-8, the options facing coach Andy Reid became clear — he’d have to relieve first-year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo of his duties, or Reid would be fired. But something happened on the way to an ultimatum.  The Eagles’ defense has improved. As a result, Castillo’s status remains unclear.  Players…

Redskins-Eagles: Andy Reid sees improvement in Mike Shanahan’s squad

Mike Shanahan said earlier this week that he sees marked difference in his team now compared to the Redskins squad that he took over two years ago, and Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid agrees. Shanahan on Monday cited improved youth and depth as signs of improvement. And Reid, whose Eagles on Sunday host the Redskins in the regular season finale, said it’s evident that Washington’s...

Philadelphia Eagles: Juan Castillo vs. Hiring Another Defensive Coordinator

Should Juan Castillo remain as the Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator for the 2012 season or should he be replaced? That is the big question looming as the 2011 season comes to a close.  We may have an answer by this time next week, or within the next two weeks for sure. It’s my biggest question, anyway.  Some folks are probably still hoping beyond hope that Andy Reid...

Kurt Coleman Heads To IR; Reid Won't Comment on Spagnuolo

Andy Reid confirmed this morning what many already knew- Kurt Coleman's season is over after tearing his bicep. Reid said the injury would take around 6 weeks to heal, meaning Coleman should be fine by minicamps. With Coleman out, rookie safety Jaiquawn Jarrett will step in and make his second start of the season. Coleman has been the Eagles best saftey this season, tallying...

Eagles trying to finish at .500

A meaningless regular-season game for the Philadelphia Eagles usually means resting their starters for the playoffs. Not this year. The Eagles (7-8) are going home after their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins (5-10). It's the first time since 2007 they didn't make the playoffs and just the fourth time it's happened in coach Andy Reid's 13 seasons. That...

Reid Won’t Comment On Spagnuolo Report And Coleman Is Put On IR

Eagles head coach Andy Reid refused to comment on the report that Rams current head coach Steve Spagnuolo will become the team’s defensive coordinator after he is fired by the Rams at the end of the season.  It’s not a shock that Reid would avoid responding to the report. Eagles safety Kurt Coleman has been placed [...]

2011 Philadelphia Eagles: They are who we thought they were

Thanks, Dennis Green, As much as the Philadelphia Eagles, coaches and players say how important it is not to have a losing season and the players want to save Andy Reid and Juan Castillo’s job. Bull. Does it really matter if they win the game or not? Or that LeSean McCoy wins the rushing title? I will admit it is nice that McCoy, Jason Peters and Jason Babin were awarded for outstanding...

D coordinator's status hangs over Eagles' finale

Juan Castillo's eyes got red and watery and his voice quivered slightly when he was asked if he ever lost confidence in himself during his struggles as a first-time defensive coordinator. ''The only thing for me is: I don't want to fail my head coach,'' Castillo said. ''I don't want to fail him, man. I don't want to fail my boss.''...
