    Well, as we see here dailly, some fans dont know a thing about fooball.


    Copy past incoming

    4th in 3rd down defense
    3rd in 4th down defense
    4th in red zone defense
    best in completion percentage allowed
    6th best in passing yards per attempt
    2nd best in opposing passer rating
    9th best against traditional runs. (RBs average just 3.7 yards per carry)
    10th best in yards per scrimmage play
    and have the highest percentage of plays giving up 0 yards or a loss


    The bad:

    3rd most in penalized yards (players)
    8th worst tackling team (players)
    3rd worst against non traditional run game (players get tricked easily)
    Low sacks

    Now dont get me wrong, I dont follow the eagles, but Id take it. At some point, just like ourselves, you have to point the finger at the players. And what is that??? 4 DC's in 5 years now?

    Reid and Marty and Vick are the problem.

    Vick is the main problem... there's no doubt about it.

    But they've got to get LeSean more involved. He's a top 5 RB... use him.

    First off, we are not the Eagles...they have not been able to get it done for a long time with some much better talent than we have on D. We are very young on D and need to let this group play for at least another 1-2 years before I start blaming it all on the coach.

    At least that is how I view it as a different situation.

    D looked better against the stoolers. Made some stops and there were a few successful blitzes.


    Improvement on a weekly basis and Im a happy camper.

    Those boat races were very hard on me - lol

    Jim Johnson was one of the best defensive coordinators for a decade. The eagles have not been as good defensively since. Perhaps the bar for them is a little higher.
