It’s a weird time for Philadelphia Eagles fans. For the first time since 2006 the Eagles are going to miss the playoffs following a dismal 2011 campaign that can end no better than 8-8.Photo: Dan Dubrow/Bleeding Eagle GreenMy focus in week 17 is going to be primarily on Juan Castillo’s defense as they’ve been Philadelphia’s burden for most of the season. But Castillo’s group has been revitalized these last few weeks and I’m curious to see how they will approach this last game knowing their season will end along with the game.Philadelphia’s defense will be without two starters in their secondary on Sunday; cornerback Asante Samuel (hamstring) and safety Kurt Coleman (bicep/IR). Samuel did not participate during Thursday’s practice and odds are he will sit out on Sunday.Samuel’s late season injury has provided Dominique Rodgers-Cromartiewith a much needed opportunity to show the coaching staff he’s the real deal starting with last week’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Meaningful game for Eagles rookie safety Jaiquawn Jarrett...

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...

Philadelphia Eagles Look to End Season on High Note

When the season started 17 weeks ago, Eagles fans saw this game as a potential meaningless match-up. However, it was thought that this game would be meaningless because the Eagles would have already clinched the division. Unfortunately, win or lose, this will be the final game for the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Eagles Offense vs. Redskins Defense: The Eagles first team offense...

Castillo’s future remains unclear

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…
