PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – With the Philadelphia Eagles defense struggling under first year coordinator Juan Castillo, one (presumably) Eagles fan took to the internet looking for help.
An ad posted under “gigs” on the classified ad web site Craigslist.com was headlined: Defensive Coordinator (Philadelphia).
The ad, which was removed from the site Wednesday afternoon, read:
“Hey, we are looking for anyone interested in becoming a Defensive Coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles. We figured that since our current Guy doesn’t have any experience as a Defensive Coordinator that we could just post on Craigslist and maybe get a fan that might know what their doing. I mean if you play madden on playstation you could probably do pretty good here. Hit me up if you are interested. The money is awesome and we have a cool quarterback to watch during the game. A plus would be if you could tackle and get in there for a few plays to help out. Thanks for lookin, Andy.”
“Andy” is an obvious reference to Eagles head coach Andy Reid. The ad was posted at 11:42 p.m. on Sunday, only hours after the Eagles blew a 20 point lead to the San Francisco 49ers.
Reid appointed Castillo the head of the defense this year after he spent 13 seasons coaching the offensive line.
The Eagles have given up 35, 29 and 24 points in their last three games and in each game, they have squandered leads.
Many fans (including the one who posted the ad on Craigslist) are pointing the finger at Reid and in particular his decision to promote Castillo.
