Eagles coaches fight on sideline during game


In the first half of the Eagles' 38-20 loss to the Patriots (see story), defensive line coach Jim Washburn and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg got into a brief but heated verbal exchange on the sideline.

The exchange actually happened early, when the Eagles still held a lead. While it was brief, the two had to be separated by Eagles sideline personnel.

I was told that Washburn and Mornhinweg never before had a verbal spat, neither in a practice or a game this season. Details of their disagreement were not revealed, but as several players told me after the game, the argument between those two typified the season, which has been all about frustration.

Players added that the team has too many people in the locker room with opinions, but not enough true leaders.
