Michael Vick the real dreammaker in Philadelphia?
Okay, quick question: Who worked 13 years as an offensive line coach and is now the defensive coordinator? Too easy -- Juan Castillo is now the defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, you know, the dream team.
The team that acquired Nnamdi Asomugha right from under the Jets and the Dallas Cowboys the day after they attained Dominique Rogers-Cromarti in a trade, while still having the services of Asante Samuel; three cornerbacks on one team with a new defensive coordinator, talk about walking into a dream job.
Even if you don’t want the Eagles defense, it looks as if your team may have a hard time passing against this team. But Juan Castillo may have bigger problems, while the Eagles have beefed up the defensive line and the secondary, their linebacker crew is suspect. Fourth round draft pick Casey Matthews has been starting at middle linebacker. Yes, he has great lineage (and pretty good hair), and he has been doing a fair job, but if your fourth round pick is your best option at linebacker, will your team be able to jam the ball and let the receivers take a rest?
And will the offensive line be improved thus making Michael Vick the fantasy quarterback pick of the year? The offensive line has not improved without Castillo, so hopes for Michael Vick lasting the full season may get you Tebowed during your fantasy season. Believing the dream team hype may also get your Tebowed, especially if the opposing offense can run the ball. This coaching change has two hits for the price of one.
