Philadelphia Eagles: Grading Each Player's Performance in 2012 (Defense)

The Philadelphia Eagles concluded their dismal season, falling 42-7 to the New York Giants in the final game of Andy Reid’s tenure with the Eagles.

After a promising 3-1 start, the Eagles lost 11 of their next 12 to stumble to last place in the entire NFC. The Birds’ 4-12 mark is the worst record since Reid took over as head coach in 1999.

Not one player can be held responsible for the miserable campaign, but disappointing performances from many of the top starters on the team contributed to the awful year. Reid has already been fired, meaning the new head coach will have to carefully evaluate each of the 53 players to see which guys deserve to come back in 2013.

As part two of this three-part series, I’ll evaluate the defensive players on the Eagles. Click here to read part one, which addresses the offense. Part three on the special teams and coaching staff will be coming shortly.
