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.

Report: Eagles assistants had to be separated

We all know how good Andy Reid is at controlling men. How are his 2 sons doing? Remember how the judged ripped him and his wife for their laissez-faire attitude. Seems like this has carried over to his staff. There is no doubt, he's lost this team and is deserving of the axe.

The Eagles signed their death certificate when they gave Vick that huge deal and put the team in his hands. That's like giving matches to an arsonist. Then they went out and spent money thinking they solved their defensive problems. Instead, their defense has been a joke and was torched yesterday.

Now it's coming apart and there are still 5 games left to watch this train wreck. If they lose to Seattle this week, expect even more craziness. If they can't stop Tavaris Jackson, they're even more pitiful then they've looked so far.

As a fan of football and player of fantasy football, i found no join in watching Young throw 40 times or whatever i was, i woulda prefered to watch an elite Rb in Mccoy run rather then a washed up starting out of default qb in Young.
So what your saying is...u have L McCoy in fantasy and NOT V Young, right?

WHY ARE U DEFENDING DRUNK DRIVERS.We can have a discussion without the name callin im not a idiot number 1. What happens when u drink u get drunk wht happens when u drive drunk there is a good chance that you will get into a accident. That is what happens when u go out and get drunk right????? Of course the broke family will take a payoff in the worst economy america has seen since the great depression. HE ONLY DID 1 MONTH IN JAIL. Why i dont know. It was vehicular manslaughter. So if i get in my car go get drunk and kill someone trying to cross the street I would be in jail for at least 5 years he get a month. THATS MY ARGUMENT. I know there was other news going on but a drunk driver killed someone and thats that. I dont understand you people that blame the person that got hit.  You sound like a idiot

Seriously what has young ever done in the NFL to warrant them passing that many time. Eagles have to be the worst play callingteam in the NFL. Your up 10 quick then u get pass happy, when u get a lead vs the PATS you take advantage of it, run theball and keep Brady off the field. Dont have 2 3 in outs and a 1 play drive that was an INT...I have no idea how REID keeps his job year after year.
