Eagles Notes: Sean McDermott, NCAA violations, winning attitudes, & a Macho man

Interim Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott's high school coach talked about the qualities that make Sean an effective leader.

"For him to be able to lead professional athletes his age and maybe a little older says a lot about him," said Colistra, who retired as La Salle's football coach in 2005. "When Sean was on the field, you had players who raised their level of play to compete with him and match him. He invited you to raise your level of play. I'm sure that’s the way he is as a coach.

"It's not what he does. It's who he is. There's no doubt in my mind that he's become a student of game. I could see that when he was playing with us. More importantly, it's the way he dealt with people, and I think that translates now. To be a good leader, you need good followers, and that means you need to be able to motivate people to pay attention to what you have to say, and that's Sean."

Rookie OL Fenuki Tupou spoke this week about how he was illegally paid by a man who worked for an agent when he was in college, and what he did to fix the situation.

King Dunlap talked about his reaction to the Eagles spending nearly a hundred million bucks on other offensive tackles this offseason...

"I just come out and compete everyday,” said Dunlop, who was drafted in the seventh round in 2008 out of Auburn. "I have the same mentality as before they came in. I come out and work hard and get better. It’s the only thing you can do. You can’t control what goes on, who they bring in, who they pay money to … you work hard and get better.”

Safety Sean Jones that there's a different attitude in Philadelphia than there was in Cleveland.

"I've been on winning teams my whole life," said the 27-year-old Jones, who was also a star quarterback in high school. "In Cleveland, we struggled while I was there. This organization has a different mind-set. It's nice to be with a team that wants to get to the playoffs, to the Super Bowl, and anything less is unacceptable."

Eagles rookie CB/S Victor Harris is now officially named "Macho" Harris.
