Washburn operated apart from Castillo, running his own little defensive line fiefdom and often either ignoring Castillo or derisively calling him “Juanita” in front of his players, the veteran defensive player said. He was condescending and confrontational and embarrassed Castillo numerous times in meetings and at practice.
Frank says that the fact that Washburn quickly followed Babin out the door is no coincidence.
Babin was all about compiling sacks, never about winning, never about being part of a team, and it turns out Washburn was exactly the same. No coincidence they were dismissed less than a week apart.
With every firing and the subsequent leaking of stories, it seems more and more that this team is compiled of nothing but assholes with supreme contempt for one another.
And there’s nobody to blame but Andy. There’s a small part of my mind that’s afraid Lurie is allowing Andy to fire all these guys so that he can keep his job with a new staff and an updated list of excuses next year, but whose idea was it to pair Juan Castillo with Jim Washburn? Whose idea was it to hire the offensive line coach to run the defense when Spags turned down the job? Who assembled this dysfunctional group of castoffs and opened the door for a line coach to undermine the coordinator with girl names and almost guaranteed burrito jokes? It’s all on Big Red.
At least now he’s admitting that he has been politicking to make Foles the starter until the end. Can’t imagine how tight Mike Vick must be right now realizing that he just got his job concussed away from him just as he did Kevin Kolb. What a mess.
Andy has to be the final kill then it all needs to be destroyed in a cleansing fire. It’s the only way.
