Questions abound:1. Will owner Jeffrey Lurie fire Andy Reid?2. If the answer to question 1 is no, will Jeffrey Lurie make Reid choose between being the GM and the head coach?3. If the answer to question 1 is no, will Andy Reid fire or demote defensive coordinator Juan Castillo?4. If the answer to question 3 is yes, will perhaps soon-to-be-former Rams head coach, former Giants' defensive coordinator and former Eagles' linebackers coach Steve Spagnuolo become the Eagles' defensive coordinator?5. Will the DeSean Jackson return to the Eagles?6. Will the Eagles demand that highly paid QB Michael Vick learn how to slide (unbelievably, he dissed the concept of sliding at a recent post-game press conference, hubris to the initiated because the odds are that if he continues his bold ways he'll become a one-dimensional cardboard cutout propped up on the sidelines and talked of in the "he coulda been a contender" type of way)?7. Will the Eagles get some leaders...

The Philadelphia Eagles played a meaningless game this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas, which they won 20-7. The Eagles found out early that their playoff hopes came to an end after the New York Giants beat the New York Jets 29-14 earlier in the day.

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...
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...
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 [...]
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...
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.''...
Some around the league feel that Juan Castillo might have done enough over the last 3 games to save his job as Eagles Defensive Coordinator.
According to a recent report, that is not the case.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that the St. Louis Rams are expected to fire Spagnuolo as head coach and bring on John Gruden in to take over.
Where would Spagnuolo end up...
