I don't think there's anyone planning on a new scheme. This firing is a direct result of having a rock solid defensive game plan for 3 quarters Sunday, then abandoning it in the 4th quarter and allowing Detroit into that game. Nmandi had done a great job on Johnson all day, and the Birds hadn't blitzed, letting fat head Stafford make the same mistakes he makes in reading coverages weekly.

In the 4th Castillo rolled DRC to Calvin who absolutely killed him. He also brought blitzes from the defensive backfield, leaving receivers run that hand't had room to do so all day.

That said, whoever is running the offense did the exact same thing, going away from what had been a really solid halftime adjustment. They went to a quick passing game, negating the obvious edge the Lions D-line has over the Eagles O-line. Mixing in a nice screen game, they had the Lions line running and chasing. Suddenly, as soon as the game tightened marginally, it reverted to "Let's make some big plays downfield", with Vick holding the ball, turning his back to the play, wasting downs. In OT the possession went sack/sack/3rd & 31 throwaway.

You could see Castillo's adjustments were awful, but the same can be said for the other side of the ball.

They were lucky when they had jim johnson and alot of those guys left over from the Ray Rhodes regime, but this is reid's creation, and while it is nice and sleek and dangerous, it's not hardly precise enough to win 11 - 12 games a year. If this team is gonna be so small in so many places (Qb, WR, D-line, O-line), then they need to be more methodical than they are.

Vick is not Brees like Gobb said, and now that Vick is the Qb (don't screw foles over by putting him in behind this line), they need to help him out by taking the ball out of hands more.

He did that sh*t at least 3 times that I remember on Sunday. Its totally unacceptable.

The sad thing is that I expect him to keep regressing if he keeps taking this kind of pounding week in and week out. Im mean he was getting destroyed out there in the 1st half

I was like

IMO you cant really go with Foles because the O-line isnt prepared to protect him when he has to throw it 50 times a game..

Andy simply needs to break himself and stop playing checkers and start playing chess. Run the ball. Implement more screen plays, and draws. Get defenses used to seeing you run the ball so when you go play action? they might actually bite, and Jackson might actually get open deep.

Agree with this.

And bolded should be the hard headed label you gave them. Stubborness comes to mind as another label to add. Not sure that pattern will ever change.
