Jeremy Maclins career began with consecutive trips to the playoffs, but hes never been part of a team that advanced past the first round.
I think change needs to come from everywhere, Maclin said, when asked if the Eagles problem had more to do with personnel or attitude. I think were definitely a talented group of guys individually. I think the team unity probably wasnt there this year. I think weve got to respect each other. If you respect somebody, youre more willing to go out there and play for that person or play for a purpose. I think the lack of respect that maybe some guys have for other guys definitely hurt us.
Maclin stopped short of saying the team quit, but he suggested that the roster Reid, Howie Roseman and Jeffrey Lurie had assembled had a serious chemistry problem.
I do think the lack of
I guess, how everybody viewed each other, Maclin said. I dont think everybody viewed each other like a team should.
It wasnt nothing to the point where it was killing us, but you can tell amongst players, there may have been a lack of respect for some players by other players. And it may be like that all across the league. Im pretty sure theres guys that dont like each other on football teams. I get that. Respecting is a different story.
Theres always going to be guys that dont like each other, but I think they were willing to still go out there and play for each other, Maclin said. This year, Im not really sure.
Maclin didnt want to name names, but he couldnt hide his frustration.
Its just something that you get a feel about in the locker room, Maclin said. Its nothing that you see people disrespecting each other. Thats not what Im talking about here. Im talking about, you can kind of get the vibe that Ok, he doesnt like him and theyre in the same room or their lockers are next to each other. Thats the kind of vibe. Sometimes, that stuff happens.
Im talking about guys who have been in this league and should understand how to be a pro, I feel like, werent acting that way. Period. And thats all Im going to say about it. Thats what it was. Guys I felt like should have been pros, have been in this league and understand how things go, wasnt acting like it.

Reid will go down as one of the Eagles’ greatest head coaches of all time, but he could never win the big one and things have only gone down hill over the past two seasons.
Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly is about to coach arguably the biggest game of his life - the Fiesta Bowl.
After that, he'll be making the rounds, bouncing around from city to city as he interviews for an NFL head coaching job. Cleveland and Philadelphia will likely be the first stops, and then from there, who knows.

The uncertainty fills the air in Philadelphia as the search begins for a new direction. Will Nick Foles remain the starter, or will the Eagles find a new quarterback to lead them?
There is one thing for sure, by finishing in fourth-place in the NFC East the Eagles will travel to the fourth-place team in the NFC South and host the fourth-place team in the NFC West in 2013.
By all accounts, Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid will find himself unemployed sometime soon. Possibly today, on what has become Black Monday for NFL coaches. Reid has had a stellar career as head coach of the Eagles. But his demise can be traced to one decision.When the Eagles decided to sign Michael Vick in 2009 as a backup to Donovan McNabb, it was a feel-good story. Everyone...
Over the weekend, NFL referee Tony Corrente was attempting to prevent a confrontation between the New York Giants safety Antrell Rolle and the Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman King Dunlap.
Keep an eye on Dunlap who runs into Corrente and Tony flies to the ground.

While the Eagles were struggling toward a 4-12 finish, Lurie ''meticulously and in great detail'' researched potential successors to replace a coach that won more games than any other in franchise history.
Reid, however, didn...
Eagles at Giants, Sunday, December 30, 2012
This Sunday featured many exciting games with playoff implications. Sadly, the Eagles game was not one of them. The 42-7 rout was a microcosm of everything that’s been wrong with the Eagles in 2012. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Well, other than to point out to the gloating Giants fans: I realize that the last time you...
