I made a promise to my mother that I'd never lean on others for help
Dear society, raise your hands if you saw this coming.
– looks around –
All of you. Yep, about what I expected.
Last night, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that the Eagles are going to consider bringing in a defensive consultant – an efficiency expert – during the bye week to help Juan Castillo.
Poor Juan, he was set up for failure, because, you know, he’s an offensive line coach.
My buddy Matt called me last night and asked if I was surprised that the Eagles are such a disaster on defense: Kyle, this would be like me applying for a job as a doctor, and when they asked if I was, in fact, a doctor, I’d say “no, but I’ve had a lot of check-ups.”
It’s unclear if the consultant would be a short term assistant, a permanent part of the team, or really just a new defensive coordinator. Whatever the case may be, his (or her– at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ashley Fox is brought in to work with the linebackers) very presence will undermine Castillo, who, from the outset, was of questionable authority. But, hey, at least he's good at dealing with people.
What the hell is wrong with you people?
