5 Improvements the Philadelphia Eagles Must Make During the Bye Week
Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is known for his ability to self-evaluate and make the adjustments necessary to be successful coming out of a bye week.

His 13-0 record after a bye would seem to back that up rather well.

Reid has a reputation as a guy who isn't afraid to make the big changes and really shake things up when he feels it necessary to do so, and 2012 has certainly been no exception with the firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.

However, just firing Castillo is not going to be enough to get this year's squad on the right track. There are far bigger issues than just the defense, and truth be told, Castillo was likely the last of the three coordinators who deserved to lose his job.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie put Reid on notice for the first time during his tenure as head coach this past offseason, and Reid knows the changes—which he's hoping will ultimately be viewed as improvements—he makes during the bye week could directly impact whether or not he's still in Philly this time next year.
