Philly2Philly Gridiron NFL Picks Week 4: Eagles Will Top 49ers Despite Juan Castillo's Incompetency


Philly2Philly Gridrion NFL PicksI led the way last week once again with a measley 10 wins - after a few surprises including the Bills. The Bills upended the Patriots as I predicted. The combo of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Stevie Johnson, and Fred Jackson will give defensive coordinators fits all season long.

I'm dreading the proposition of the Eagles playing the Bills in week 5 to be honest. Defensive coordinator Juan Castillo is clueless out there, which proves that you can't plug any coach into such a critical coaching position. Then again the Eagles reinvented the game of football and have won how many Super Bowls, so they know better than you or I...

Speaking of the Eagles - our panel and virtually everyone in the Philadelphia area was dead-wrong on the predictions for the Eagles - Giants game. If you expected the Eagles to lay an egg like that in the second half against a banged up Giants squad then maybe you should play the lottery. This game exposed Juan Castillo as an over-matched defensive coordinator. I don't think it's out of the question to suggest that he should be demoted during the season because you could plug a monkey in there to randomly select defensive playcalls and the players would perform better. This will go down as the Eagles' dumbest decision in years.

This week our panel isn't bailing on the Eagles just yet. We all agree that they'll find their way against the 49ers and get to 2-2 on the season. After last week's brutal home-opener they will get the bad taste of their mouths against Jeff Harbaugh's squad. Facing a banged-up Frank Gore and less-than-average passing offense is the best remedy for this struggling defense. The talent on the Eagles' defense will prevail - despite Juan Castillo's utter incompetency.
