Eagles Fire Jim Washburn, One Coach Calls Him “A Cancer”

Screen Shot 2012-12-03 at 7.31.04 AMYou're fucking out!

Good morning! Another piece of the carcass is ripped away as the lifeless body of what was once the Philadelphia Eagles slowly becomes even more disfigured.

The Eagles fired defensive line coach and unofficial Wide 9 chairman Jim Washburn this morning. They’ve hired Tommy Brasher to take his place. Brasher was the Eagles' d-line coach in 1985 and then again from 1999-2005, when he retired. Progress! 

Washburn reportedly had been upset that the Eagles released Wide 9 (not-so-much)superstar Jason Babin last week, and one Eagles coach told Eagles reporter Jeff McLane that Washburn had become “a cancer.” 

Things reportedly weren’t good with the d-line unit overall. Philly Mag’s Tim McManus (the hero reporter the city needs and deserves right now) is tweeting that teammates were annoyed with Washburn because Babin could “do no wrong,” and Trent Cole had walked out of a meeting at some point in the past few weeks.

Here’s a trolling statement from Andy Reid:

"Jim is a fine football coach and we appreciate the efforts he gave to this team over the past two years. However, I determined that it was in the team’s best interest that we move in a different direction in terms of trying to maximize the production of that position group We look forward to having Tommy Brasher back on board to work with the defensive line."


Goodbye, Wide 9. Who’s next?!

  1. There’s a reason Brasher has come out of retirement after 7 years. It’s because he knows it’s a temporary gig. Four games to make some coin for the holidays.

  2. Another lamb is sacrificed down at One NovaCare Way. Sadly, none of this matters worth a damn until Reid is sent packing.

  3. You mean the Eagles arent blaming the Wide 9 on a marketing person and firing them?
    Man..Andy Reid is like Sherman marching through Atlanta….Burning evreyone and everything in the path

  4. Lurie needs to just grow some nuts and fire them all instead of this piece by piece shit from a HC who is already dead. We’re playing for draft picks anyway.

  5. This ranks up there with waking up to a slop’n’slurp session from the ol’ lady. Nice!

  6. Eagle players should follow the Chiefs playbook and have a player off themselves every Saturday

  7. candy your jokes suck and by suck i don’t mean they’re offensive i mean they’re just not funny

  8. Next year:
    3-4 scheme. Brandon Graham and Trent Cole on the edges. Fletcher Cox, Cullen Jenkins at the ends. Landri/Mike Patt/Thornton on the nose. Manti Teo and Demeco Ryans in the middle.

  9. Fuck you, Candy is great and one of the reasons I read this shit, if you don’t like it go fuck a goat

  10. Fire Marty. First offensive play last night? Play action/Foles smashed to turf. You don’t think they’re going to blitz a rookie QB on the first play in their own building? Fucking idiot.

  11. @ me snl writer. I’m just giving a option they can use to end the season on a good note. Also I find it creepy that you had to change your name to bash me. A simple @ would of done the job

  12. first off fuck you cracker motherfukers if you don’t respect Candy the man is a legend and second this is the real fuckin dennis you cunt i’ll track your down like django and stick my blackness in your bitches mouth

  13. Whats with Bob Costas little sermon on gun control at halftime ?
    You’re a sports talking head, not a Founding Father STFU

  14. @Dennis I grew up in Chester. I work with Black Muslims.
    i don’t care about color. Society makes the rules.

  15. Candy they tried that with Reid’s kid. The players dedicated this season to him by playing like their six feet underground. Maybe Andy should try parenting instead of coaching because obviously Tammy ain’t good the the parental role
