Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE
Chaos now defines Reid's final days
The Eagles are gripped now by chaos. There is no other way to look at it. With four games remaining in a down-spiraling season, just hours after a late-night loss in Cowboys Stadium, they abruptly fired defensive line coach Jim Washburn, apparently telling him not to let the door hit him in the wide-9 on the way out.

Eagles sign offensive tackle Matt Kopa
The Eagles signed offensive tackle Matt Kopa from the Patriots' practice squad, filling the roster spot vacated by the releasing of Jason Babin.

Evaluating Bryce Brown
There is no doubt rookie runner Bryce Brown is bursting with talent. That’s why the front office took a seventh-round flyer on a kid who carried the ball just 104 times during a tumultuous collegiate career. But is Brown really a star in the making, a silver lining in this darkest of seasons, or are we seriously overreacting after two NFL starts?
Graham: Babin's Release Took Toll On Washburn - Birds 24/7
"I feel like that hurt him a little bit because from what I heard, he didn’t know that they were releasing him until he was actually gone," Graham said. "I know that was one of his guys, and we all loved Babin while he was here. But I think it did get to him."
Mcall.com: Eagles Insiders : Film breakdown: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha are safe and sound, thankfully
You know how in the NBA, if a guy has five fouls and he's defending a player that has gotten position on him deep in the post, he'll give sort of a half-hearted swat at the ball, but will otherwise just let his opponent have the dunk so he doesn't foul out of the game? That's essentially what Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did last night as Cowboys WR Miles Austin ran right by him for a game-tying TD earliy in the 4th quarter last night.
