Linebacker Casey Matthews hinted at what he thought of Juan Castillo’s coaching when he summed up the first meeting of the Philadelphia Eagle defense in the Todd Bowles era on Monday: “We’re not going to be predictable anymore.”

Brandon Graham took those comments further on Wednesday by blaming Castillo for the Eagles defensive woes in the games of which he presided. Graham stated that the former DC’s inability to  change his play calling in the fourth quarter was exactly the reason for the collapse the Birds experienced so many times  in the last moments of games in 2011 and 2012.
