Mort: Eagles Might Add Defensive Consultant

Mr Castillo, what would you say it is ya <em>do</em> here?
Mr Castillo, what would you say it is ya do here?

ESPN's Chris Mortenson is reporting that Andy Reid and the Eagles front office are considering bringing in a "consultant" to review the Eagles defense during the bye two weeks from now. He had no word on who it might be.

Obviously anything that could potentially help would be welcome, but I question why they would bother waiting until the bye? You risk being 1-5 at that point. Now, to be fair, it's not likely the consultant would have much effect being brought in 4 or 5 days before this weekend's game, but at the very least you could have them taking an early look.

If true, this does show some desperation on the Eagles part, which is absolutely a good thing. They should be desperate. They should be inventing ways to try and fix this disaster. The Eagles are currently giving up the 5th most points per game in the league.

What potential names might you be interested in for potential consultants? Tommy Lawlor floated the names of Chuck Cecil and Greg Blatche.
