Eagles can't cover the TE...scheme or players ?



We are going on what seems to be a decade of the Eagles not being able to cover the TE.

Is it because we have below average linebackers, or an ineffective sheme  to cover tight ends?

Are there ANY teams that have linebackers that cover the TE and shut them down ? Maybe the steelers ? The Packers

It just seems that whoever we get can't cover the TE. In key situations why couldnt we just put Nnamdi on Gonzales ? While DRC and Asante cover the wideouts.  I have to believe it is a flaw in our scheme. Yes our linebackers arent the greatest--but where is it written in stone a TE ALWAYS has to be covered by a LB. With all of these great coaching minds, Im just not seeing why they cant solve this problem after a decade.  I really tend to think its the scheme. Similar to WR's in chicago...prior to cutler going there all widouts who were previously good went there and generally under performed.
