Eagles fire DLine coach Jim Washburn
He is being replaced by Tom Brrasher, who was DLine coach in 1985 and then again from 99-05.
“Jim is a fine football coach and we appreciate the efforts he gave to this team over the past two years,” said head coach Andy Reid in a press release. “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.”
Apparently, Washburn was a selfish creep that put his Dline over the rest of the defense, and overruled the Def Coord. The DLine only plays in the wide 9 and nothing else. That's fine if every play was pass but it's not. When the linebackers read run, they alert for that. The Dline NEVER changes to run. Thanks Jim.
You ask me why I lift, I wonder why you don't.
