Soriano accusing his office of ignoring evidence and hastily determining that the deaths were a murder-suicide.

WHAT WENT WRONG? Turnovers The Eagles led the NFL with 36 turnovers. Chip Kelly said he has never been part of a team that turned over the ball at that rate. The quarterbacks combined for 27, but the blame could be spread all around - from Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez to trusted veterans LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek.

While cornerback Bradley Fletcher and safety Nate Allen were the prime offenders, defensive coordinator Bill Davis often played a single-high safety scheme that made the Eagles more susceptible to big plays.

So you might think autopsy rulings would rarely be disputed. But it happens all the time. "Suicides - families often find that unacceptable. It's very upsetting to think a relative would commit suicide," said Gregory Davis, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners.
