03:58 PM ET 10.25 | During their bye the Eagles fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and replaced him with Todd Bowles. Babin said there would not be any major scheme changes, but changes would be "small nuances, which I (Babin) think can make a huge difference." Babin, who only has 2.5 sacks so far this season after recording 18 sacks last year, said the Eagles are getting to the quarterback just a split second too late. Babin believes the sacks will come if Philadelphia's defense can make small changes that force the opposing quarterback to hold onto the ball just a bit longer.

No scheme changes... No on-field personnel changes...

That leaves Motivation & Play calling as the only things that can save the Eagles D.

I dunno, do you think Babin means to say the secondary needs to cover receivers better?

That's what it sounds like.

Sounds like someone wants to play the blame game instead of looking in his mirror.

Has he learned to do that ? What was the score last time they met, matter a fact, how did the geeeeeez men do against them last year ?

I think we can all agree, there is blame enough to go around on that team.

October 25, 2012  07:31 PM ET

maybe Bowles developed a time warp, so the QB is a split second behind the rushers...
