Are you concerned about the Eagles’ purging of their defensive staff?
Yes. Maybe the players are really to blame.
No. They need a fresh start.

The Eagles, of course, are still without a defensive coordinator after they fired Sean McDermott. Washburn replaced Rory Segrest who was fired with one year left on his deal. And defensive backs coach Dick Jauron left to take the defensive coordinator position with the Browns.

Shuey just finished his 10th season with the Eagles. He spent the last three in charge of linebackers.
