Eagles fire Washburn
After Sunday night’s 38-33 loss to the Cowboys, defensive line coach Jim Washburn has been fired. The latest casualty in Lurie’s firing range, Washburn joins a long line of assistant coaches, players, and front office personnel to lose their jobs in the face of this now-officially losing season. One week after pro bowl defensive end Jason Babin was cut, the coach most credited with molding him from a former first-round bust to an All-Pro has been sent packing as well. It is becoming clear that Andy Reid is running out of scapegoats and I’m sure he knows deep down inside his days as head coach are numbered and he’s becoming more and more desperate to shift the blame anywhere he can find a flaw.
