Who gives a da_n what AR says, and has said after every loss ... that is just a smoke screen of "coach's blabber." No coach, from Paul Brown to Bill Belichek, has won with a weak O-line, let alone one that has lost 4 of it's 5 starting interior linemen. The injury to Herrimans was a back-breaker. Given the OL situation, however, the O Coordinator needed to adjust and Vick needed to recognize defensive coverages and blitzes. It's become quite clear that Vick, despite his athleticism is a little weak above the shoulders. Marty is nearly as weak in the head department, hard headedly continuing with things that are not working. Losing, like winning can become contagious. The plague that has struck the Eagles started when Jeff L hung the albatros around Andy's neck, it got worse when Jason Peters tore his AT and the situation got even worse as starter after starter was injured. The knee jerk firing of Juan Castillio just muddled things even more. Todd Bowles seems to have made things worse. John Gruden's comment about the Eagle's high priced acquisitions stepping-up was right on target. Where were DeMeko, Nnamdi, Babin, DRC, and Jenkins when Breese started carving-up the defense? Even Trent Cole went cold. It's also very disheartening that DeSean and Macklin can not get open, that Celek and Harbour can't hold on to passes that other tight ends in the league routinely handle. The season is a total team failure thus far. No one can be singled-out, everyone has been a part of this cluster f___ of a season.
