    Honestly, I don't think Juan was the problem.

    Defense -
    Pts Alwd: 20.8 (13th)
    Yds: 330.8 (12th)
    P Yds: 226.3 (15th)
    R Yds: 104.5 (15th)
    3rd Down%: 4th
    Red zone TD pct: 4th

    None of those numbers are bad. Maybe you're 3-3 because your offense is averaging 17.2 PPG (31st in the league). Or the fact that Vick has a 77 QB Ratings, 8 INTs, and 9 Fumbles?

    The Eagles defense was the only thing keeping them in games. How about you fix the crappy O-Line and get a QB who doesn't turn it over 5 times a game.

    Yeah the D was not the problem in Philly. If Reid wanted to fire anyone it should've been Mike Vick. That guy is the problem right now.

    He became their Jeff Fisher last year when he hired this guy as DC in the first place.

    Yea... I was really surprised by this. And I'm more surprised with ignorant people acting like "oh finally they fired this idiot." He has improved tremendously dating back to the last quarter of the 2011 season. He's done a great job this season considering Vick has turned the ball over 17 ****ing times in 6 games.

    Vick is responsible for all three of their losses and only responsible for maybe one win. He sucks.

    From what I heard, he apparently changed their scheme in the 4th quarter in the Steelers and Lions losses... which could've been critical. The players complained about it to Reid.

    Castillo is definitely a scapegoat here though.

    Stop acting like Castillo was any good.

    I bet no one in Philly will miss him.

    Never said he was any good... I said he's done a great job so far this season and defended him from being fired. If Vick could hold onto the ball, not take -15 yard sacks and not throw stupid INTs, the Eagles would be at least 5-1. It's Vick's fault; not Castillo's.

    Andy Reid was the idiot who switched him from an OL coach to a DC. That's retarded.

    7 sacks is sad. Hell, our idiot coordinator has us 8 sacks, and we all want him canned.
