He was 68 years old. (

I don't think anyone realized how quick this would go when he stepped down to take a leave of absence earlier this offseason. My condolences go out to his family. I'll always appreciate that it was the Eagles dishing out his awesome blitzes and not the one's taking them. He will be missed.

You believe me, don't you?

I really thought he would get better when he first stepped down, but with hindsight I guess we should have known things weren't looking good when McDermott offically took over.

For all he'll be remembered for his awesomely creative blitzing, it was remarkable how almost every year he'd seemingly have to cope with the loss of at least one Pro-Bowler or defensive leader and every year he'd still have one of the top 5 or 10 Ds in the league.

Heck of a corrdinator, and always came across as a decent all round guy as well.

He'll be missed.

I loved him. The Eagles are notoriously schizophrenic, but one thing I could always bet on is the defense would show up to play. I have no problem at all with this being a "win one for Jim year" - I'm all for it

What would be great is if before he checked out, his last play called was an offensive one - a note to Reid to run the fucking QB sneak when it's 4th an 1


Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Living in Eastern PA for 5 years taught me something, Eagles fans, and most Philly sports fans are just plain assholes. I went to a USFL game the year I moved there from New Orleans.
