When Juan Castillo was fired as the defensive coordinator, the communication was supposed improve, but it has gotten worse. New defensive coordinator Todd Bowles job was to simplify the message, and get defensive players talking to each other. It’s not always sunny in Philadelphia, and it’s definitely not shining on the Eagles these days. The first year secondary coach was put in a tough position, trying to come in mid season and try to change things. So far he has been trying to make the right corrections. "I think everything is corrected, every week, all the time. Players are going to make mistakes, just like your children," Bowles said according to Les Bowen of Philly.com. "You don't want'em to happen, you can go over 'em and go over 'em. We have a responsibility to correct, they have a responsibility to get it right."

It was supposed to Cam Newton, the rookie sensation in 2011, versus the resurgent Michael Vick.  The Panthers appeared...

Nnamdi Asomugha believes things will turn around for himself and the Philadelphia Eagles

  Fairly or unfairly, if there is one player who represents the underperformance of the 2011 and 2012 Philadelphia Eagles, it is Nnamdi Asomugha. When the Birds landed the three-time Pro Bowl corner in the free agent spending spree that followed the NFL lockout in the summer of 2011, it seemed that the sky was the limit for the team.

Cam Newton: Michael Vick and I have a rare skill set that is a gift and a curse

Cam Newton has been compared to Michael Vick ever since he burst onto the scene at Auburn and led the Tigers to a national championship.

Newton says that dual-threat ability has its benefits...
