How do you honestly feel about the Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs?

Much of what was previously said about the Eagles wide receivers and their position coach can be restated about Philly’s defensive backs and their leader, Marquand Manuel. Yes, Aaron Moorehead is immensely talented, and you can’t find anyone that’s going to say anything derogatory about him as a head coach.

The same can be said about Philly’s defensive backs coach. So, just like Moorehead, here’s the situation. Manuel hasn’t given us enough to determine definitively that he needs to be on the hot seat, but the pressure cooker needs to be turned up slightly.

Why? It’s simple. When you look at the fact that Avonte Maddox hasn’t developed appropriately and Nickell Robey-Coleman is a disappointment and hen you look at the fact that, though he’s a fan favorite, Cre’Von LeBlanc isn’t any better now than he was in either of the two previous seasons, you have to ask the question.

Is Marquand Manuel as good as we think he is? Sure, Darius Slay is a star, but isn’t that more of a fact because of what Darius Slay is doing? Seriously, Manuel can’t take all of the credit for that, can he?
