Brandon Graham Takes a Swipe a Juan Castillo

Speaking to CSN’s Reuben Frank, Brandon Graham became the latest disappointing Eagles draft pick to say something that annoys you.

As if it wasn’t already clear that Juan Castillo wasn’t particularly good at his job, Graham wants to make sure you know that the defense’s struggles could be blamed in large part on Castillo’s play-calling: [CSN Philly]

“That’s what [Bowles] talked about, not being predictable in the fourth quarter, because by the fourth quarter everybody knows what we’re going to do, and that’s how we get beat.”

“I think we started running the same stuff over and over and not switching it up as much.”

“A lot of time we ran the same coverage, stuff like that. I listen to the calls every play – ‘Coach, what do we have this play? What do we have this play,’ and it was always pretty much the same stuff.” 


Poor Juan.

  1. Wait.
    I thought Juan was fired because they changed up what they did in the 4th quarter when what they had been doing the previous 3 quarters was working.
    This team is a disgrace.

  2. Coming from a no account bum who rarely, if ever got on the field because he wasn’t good enough to play, Graham has got some nerve griping about Castillo. Disgusting!

  3. This entire franchise is a joke from top to bottom…The smug attitude that spews from management, coaches, and players is a disgrace and part of the reason why fans are so turned off right now (not to mention the piss poor play). There is no leadership, there is no character, there is no accountability.

  4. Just think Eagle fans we could’ve had all pro Jason Pierre Paul or all pro safety Earl Thomas over Brandon Graham in the 1st rd,and all pro LB Navarro Bowman or all pro TE Jimmy Graham over small undersized DE Daniel Tao Nesheim who is not even the team anymore in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft.
    Thanks Big Red.

  5. I remember I was yelling at the TV “pick earl Thomas ” pick that mother fucker earl Thomas” then yelling fat stubborn pig, fat fuck fat fuck

  6. Not exactly sure how Brandon Graham is a disappointing draft pick. In case you haven’t been paying attention, Graham and Fletcher Cox are the only defensive linemen who have been consistently getting pressure on the quarterback. It sucks that he was picked right before JPP but it was the right pick at the time, not to mention Graham has been a beast thus year when he’s gotten the opportunity. He should be starting opposite Cole.

  7. Bfandon Grahm is a stinky nig. I hope he gets stabbed with a rusted machete after he’s done fingering his grand mothers loose infected rubbery cunt. Then we can fillet his lips and asshole and have enough food to feed a third world cuntry. I hope he dies and does it embarrassingly. I hate his guts and I hate big reds guts. Fuck him in the ass with a sock full of nails.

  8. Why don’t pussy Jeff Lurie, pack his team up & get the fuck out of Philly. Hate this team

  9. Who do these players think they are? They stink and they must not know it. When will the media finally let them know that that blow?

  10. Don’t hate on him, we should instead thank Mr. Graham for pinpointing the problem. According to him this defense will get awesome with some new play calling.
    Currently ranked 11th, let’s see where they are in 3-4 weeks. If they’re ranked 6th and we’re 7-4, maybe he was right. But if they’re the same or worse than today, then he and Bowles and Didinger and all the other Castillo passive-aggressive underminers can catch the first train outta effin town.
    Times yours, cowards. Bring it.

  11. @ Ryan Rosa-Martir, A-fucking-men. I want to punch some of these players in their nut sacks when I see them doing all that shit talking and strutting for making one good play after making no fucking plays for most of the goddamned game! Fucking D-Jack! One fucking touch and the cocksucker is strutting all over the place like a fucking chicken on crystal meth. Thank god I can’t hear what that fucktard is saying.

  12. JBB is right. According to Graham, the problem with Juan’s playcalling was that it was repetitive, but wasn’t that strategy working for the first three quarters of the Detroit game in terms of how the defense had kept Calvin Johnson in check? It was only when the playcalling inexplicably changed in the fourth did Megatron go off and the Birds wound up losing. If that’s the case, then Graham is even more of a fool for what he said than I thought.

  13. Wow, the Eagles have such an unlikable defense. There’s just an endless parade of excuse-makers. Did McNabb take over the D-Coordinator job? At least Vick says he needs to play better and get it right. It’s really easy to be loved in Philly. I’m amazed how many guys don’t get it.

  14. please splain to me how any of this explains away the INTs and fumbles and HORRIBLE clock management on offense…

  15. BringBackRichards: That’s because the players take their marching orders from Andy Reid who’s exemplified monstrous arrogance combined with a near total lack of personal accountability.
    STFU: Because Reid wanted Castillo and the defense to take all the heat with the fans and media, thus ignoring the glaring failures on offense with his boys Marty and Vick, neither of whom he was going to sacrifice, no matter how bad things got. And, for the most part, it appears Reid’s getting away with it.

  16. To all you punks on this sorry assed team,why didn’t you say something to Juan’s face instead of behind his back? why did you wait until the guy was fired? you bunch of whiny assed losers. You all suck.

  17. I bet babin & cole both get sacks sunday & they win. Monday morning, every1 is back on the bandwagon
