Eagles: What Went Wrong?

January 11, 2011 By: Katchop Category: NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles know that they need to fix their defense in the off-season.

Young players like DeSean Jackson are lucky that the Philadelphia Eagles have Mike Vick around to show them how to cope with a tough loss.

The problems in the red zone have the Eagles front office concerned about defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.  During the season, opposing teams got into the end zone at a 77% rate, which is the worst an NFL defense has done in that category in nearly three decades.  I learned that the Eagles feel McDermott has made the team’s defensive system too complicated and gimmicky.

There’s concern that too many times during the season, he has had the team’s defensive ends playing pass defense. Earlier in the week, defensive end Trent Cole pointed a finger at the coaches and the scheme.  Someone asked him if he was wearing down during the season because he hadn’t come down any sacks in a good while.  Cole said he was fine, but added he was just doing what the coaches wanted him to do.
