04:51 PM ET 10.26 | Philadelphia Eagles newly appointed defensive coordinator Todd Bowles stated in an interview with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow of 94.1 WIP in Philadelphia that he has no plans to make drastic changes early on. Speaking about the difficulty of coming into the position mid-season without the aid of training camp, Bowles correlated it to coming into a new home and ripping out the sink. His goal is to put his players in a position to make plays and help them stay technically sound. He understands that his job is to keep the defense consistent. "You're not going to come in here and remove the sink and put a new one in. We're sound and we are solid. You really want to make sure the guys play sound and fast and there's going to be chances for each guy to make a play and show their ability. You want to make sure you can do that without jeopardizing the whole entire defense."

Changing the toilet would be a better analogy.

3-3 is consistent. Ya win some, ya lose some.

What the defense needs to do is consistently give up fewer points than the offense scores. It's not all their fault. Yeah, they've had their bye and that skews the stats, but right now Philly ranks #1 in cheesesteaks but #31 in points scored.

So, can you surmise that the team prefers a loose Bowles?

Toilet? Bowles? Yes, this is all beginning to make sense now.

That's good. Because the defense never was the problem to begin with.

Perhaps even ifthey don't score the offence would just not cough up the ball.
