Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Players/Coaches Most at Fault for a Disappointing Season

There's plenty of blame to go around in Philadelphia now that the Eagles are 4-7 and their playoff hopes pretty much done. Juan Castillo has been a disaster as a defensive coordinator.

Asante Samuel and DeSean Jackson have been even softer than usual. Let's not forget about Michael Vick's 14 turnovers through nine starts. Linebacker play has been pretty bad as well, but you can blame a lot of that on the lack of a true 4-3 middle linebacker. Andy Reid put this team and coaching staff together, and it has been a unorganized, dysfunctional mess since Week 2.

There will be consequences at the end of the season. Coaches will be fired. Players will be cut, traded or left to test the free-agency waters. Changes will be made this offseason. It won't be a complete overhaul, but the mentality of the team will chance and certain high-profile players will be shipped out.

The base of this team is talented enough to compete for a Super Bowl. We saw that last season, and we have seen glimpses of that this season as well.

The future is still bright in Philadelphia but not before some tough decision by the front office this offseason. Complete dysfunction will not be tolerated by Eagles fans, and you can expect some familiar faces to get the axe following the season.
