Report: Eagles assistants had to be separated

As if things couldn’t get any worse in Philadelphia, there were reports after the Eagles 38-20 loss to the Patriots that assistant coaches Marty Mornhinweg and Jim Washburn got into a verbal confrontation on the sideline and actually had to be separated before it got physical.

Week 12 in review
And it actually occurred when Philadelphia was still leading New England.

According to CSN Philly, the two have not had problems with each other before, and while there’s been no official word on why the two went after each other on the sideline Sunday, the Philadelphia Daily News speculated that Washburn -- the defensive line coach -- didn’t appreciate the play-calling of Mornhinweg, the offensive coordinator.

Particularly during the second quarter when the Patriots were in the middle of a 17-point spree and Mornhinweg continued calling for pass after pass (you’ll note that Vince Young threw for 400 yards but LeSean McCoy only recorded 10 carries). At one point, the Eagles went three-and-out on three incomplete passes, not giving Philadelphia’s defense enough time to rest.

Which might have contributed to a terrible second quarter for the Eagles defense. Not to mention an upset Washburn.

Fire Andy!!!!! McCoy is a top 5 back and you give it to him 10 times. Run the f'in ball idiots. Why would you want to be in a shoot out with Vince Young as your QB. Run the ball 30-40 times and keep Brady off the field. Andy has been done for 3 years now.

The big problem is Andy Reid and his play calling and leadership skills! Andy never has the team prepared and this crap hiring a offensive Coor to be the new defensive Coor is a joke. He should have hired a proven guy on defense and Andy is the head coach and its his job to know the ability of his defense. Most of the defemsove guys are playing to their weakness. Asomaugh is a man to man coverage guy that likes to press. He isn't a zone CB. He locks up on a guy and shuts down the whole side of that field. Andy go get a real run stopping MLB and change your wide 9 defense and run a real defense and get a proven coach in there and stop throwing the darn ball so much and get your best weapon MCcoy involved more. But don't worry Andy you have punched your ticket and I am huge Philly fan and I am tired of you coming up short and not winning the big game or better yet getting beat like a drum at home. Its called home field advantage Andy!! Its time for you to go FATBOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who really cares!  The Eagles have always been bridesmaids and always will be.  The team has more thugs on the roster than any other.  They are talented but are too dumb to do anything with it.  With the right coach and discipline they would be scary!!!
I have to ask about the thugs comment?  Who are they...I will spot you Michael Vick, who is a low-life dog-killer.  But who else?  I don't like Desean Jackson, and he is a punk, but not a thug.  Who else can it be?  You do know that the Eagles were 1 of 4 teams in the WORLD (Memphis Grizzlies, Manchester United and Liverpool being the other 3) that were nominated for some philanthropic award (BEYOND SPORTS AWARD 2011).  So calling the Eagles thugs is a bit off here.  So who are the thugs?

Really??? KOLB? You have got to be freaking kidding me. First of all, Garcia I'll buy off on, cause he did wonderful filling in for Donovan when everyone else thought we were through in 2004-2005. If Kolb is so wonderful CONCRETE CHARLY, and i'm sure everyone else is thinking the same thing, then why is he still unbelievably TERRIBLE!! Riddle me that. You have one of THE best WR's in Fitzgerald and look at his numbers this year, they are abysmal. Don't come back and say, oh he gets Double and Triple covered either. Come on, it was the same when Warner was QB, but he just threw the ball up there and Larry went up and got it. Those two were a HUGE reason Arizona even made it to the super bowl that year. If Kolb is so much better then why can't he succeed? ANSWER: Cause he is TERRIBLE!!!!! He is Garbage!! Thank god we offloaded him and got good returns, that was a smart move by Andy.
      
;
;  Seriously, yeah, we need to run more, but Vick has done well, not this year, but he had a great season last year. I certainly didn't see many people complaining when we were winning last year. I think our issues deal moreso with Andy's choice of a DC. Obviously the Patriots secondary is terrible that's why they were passing so much more. If Desean catches that first TD at the end of the 1st half, its 21-17, and a brand new ball game. Anyway, woulda, coulda, shoulda, but didn't. Philly didn't play well when they needed to and that was apparent, but don't say we'll never win with Reid and Marty. It comes down to execution and they came out hot and then literally dropped the ball. We need to be better on D, plain and simple. No excuse for that many blown assignments and that reflects on the DC.
Yes, really, Kolb.  You missed my point.  As bad as Kolb has been, he hit receivers in stride more than McNabb, Vick or Young can.  McNabb just threw the ball downfield and hoped somebody outran the defense and got under it.  As for Kolb this season, lets see, traded in first week of training camp, not allowed to practice for first several days (stupid rules coming out of the lockout), then trying to learn new offense in a few weeks, with a lousy line, a RB that was not doing the job in the first several games, and he has been out injured for 3 weeks now.  The real book on Kolb will be determined next year.  This is a lost season due to many problems, not all of them him. 

As for Vick and running, I don't want a running QB.  I want McCoy with the rock.  And Vick WAS garbage for most of last year.  His first 5 games he passed very well, better than he ever has at anytime in his career.  But you look at the numbers, starting with the Giants game, and his passing rating has slid ever since.  Our wins came with his feet, not his arm.  In a pass first offense, you need a passing QB.  We don't have that.  The stats from last season, when you look at them game by game, bear out my comments.

To be fair, Kolb is in an Offense that he's never been in. He's a West Coast Offense kind of QB. Three step drop and throw on time. This he can do. Drop back 7 steps, and hold the ball until Fitzgerald gets open, is not a good fit for someone with questionable arm strength.
Now for the Coaches fighting. The Defense has been so bad this year, they shouldn't get to say anything to anybody. As far as Marty M. goes, he's just the co-ordinator that Reid wants. Pass the ball 70% of the time. They shouldn't be fighting each other, they should be questioning Andy Reid's ability to coach. I know he's been a very good coach. But this year it looks like he's done. First, with the turnover on Defense, he takes an OFFENSIVE coach and makes him the Defensive co-ordinator. That right there should have gotten him fired. I know that he has a little defensive coaching experience, but not enough to be the head guy. Now Marty M. would be calling good plays if he had an actual West Coast Offense QB. But what he has are Teabows, that throw the ball a little better. Stop trying to fit all these guys into a system, fit the system to your QB's abilities. THAT is the sign of a good coach. This is why John Fox is winning games with Teabow, and why the Eagles aren't winning with QB's like Vick and Young.

Seriously? You're calling them retards? Let's assess....

  "LMFAO!!!! CBSSports just know found this stuff out"


I'm sure you meant CBSSports just NOW found this out..... I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you hit the 'k' unwittingly and spell check didn't catch it because 'know' is actually a word.  


That, however, does not excuse  "  Why the fans was saying that is.... " Piss poor grammar. "Why the fans WERE saying that is...." would be correct.


The next gem is   " got into a verbal confrontation and had to be seperated" You misspelled a word (separated) that was in the freaking title of the article. As Stuart Scott would say ....'Come On Man!!?


And finally   " Do you even know all of the story that fans that dont even work for cbssports knows more then you retards. " <----What the hell is that? 


1. You should have used 2 sentences instead of 1. For example "Do you even know the whole story? Fans that don't even work for CBS know more than you retards"

2. 'Knows'?? Do you knows more than someone else or do you KNOW more than them? Yeah....


3.And of course 'then' vs 'than'.       When you are talking about a noun (thing, person, place or concept) being more, less, better, cooler, dumber, etc. in relation to another noun, the word than is necessary.  You're more retarded THAN CBSSports. 

When you want to tell about a sequence of events or are giving instructions in a step-by-step order, the word then is necessary. Eat a pie THEN take a dump. 

here's a link for you to use next time you feel like flaming someone for an article, calling them a retard, and then the mortification that will inevitably follow when you realize you're far more retarded than <---(see what I did there) some one reporting facts and not speculation.
