Since the firing of former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo last week, we’ve been waiting for the corresponding shoe to drop on offense.
After head coach Andy Reid’s pronouncement that Mike Vick would remain his starting quarterback and that Marty Morhinweg would continue to call plays on offense, we knew that no sizable change were coming on that side of the ball for the Birds.
No, there will be no major, seismic-shift-type changes. But lo and behold, the week after Philadelphia’s bye has produced some shifts, specifically on the offensive line.
The never-ending rotation at left tackle continues with King Dunlap now back to being the starter. Yes, that means that Demetress Bell has been demoted from the position yet again, rightly so after an awful outing against Detroit. CSNPhilly’s Reuben Frank initially reported the change. Many other factors are obviously involved, but the Birds are 2-0 with Dunlap starting at LT and 1-3 with Bell in that role.

Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham indicated that the team firing coach Juan Castillo was a necessary move based on some of his in-game coaching strategies.
This week is going to be, to put it mildly, interesting.
The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid replaced his DC and there are widespread rumors of problems in the entire front office.
The Falcons, also coming off a bye, are the only remaining undefeated team.
Andy Reid has never lost the game the week after the bye, including the infamously disastrous 2005 season...
Linebacker Casey Matthews hinted at what he thought of Juan Castillo’s coaching when he summed up the first meeting of the Philadelphia Eagle defense in the Todd Bowles era on Monday: “We’re not going to be predictable anymore.”
Brandon Graham took those comments further on Wednesday by blaming Castillo for the Eagles defensive woes in the games of which he presided. Graham...
The first half of the season is coming to an end, and a few key points have become abundantly clear:
Mike Vick is done.
Tom Caughlin hates fumblers.
Jerry Jones is the next Al Davis (in the bad way).
RG3 will have the shortest, most exciting NFL career.
Atlanta is finally good. For real.
Cam Newton isn’t the next RG3.
Having a coach is kind of important.
