IN THEIR SUPER Bowl championship season, the Giants only went 3-3 in the NFC East, with a loss to the Eagles and two losses to last-place Washington. That might not make running back Ahmad Bradshaw an expert, but he was asked for his opinions about the other teams in the division. His observations on the Eagles were astute in their obviousness: "I think it might be a little bit of their defense," he said. "I guess they were trying to come together with a lot of different people.

The Cincinnati Bengals hired Eagles assistant Leslie Frazier as defensive coordinator yesterday, creating a coaching staff that has tied the second-highest number of African Americans in NFL history. Marvin Lewis, who was recently hired as head coach and is also African American, didn't want to emphasize the new hirings in terms of race. The hiring of Frazier, who coached an Eagles secondary that produced three Pro Bowl players this season, brought the number of blacks on the Bengals' staff to six, plus Lewis.

After two weeks of speculation about the Eagles' next defensive coordinator - and denials from team sources about just how interested they were in some candidates - they may have homed in on one coach. The Eagles want to interview Green Bay Packers assistant Darren Perry, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which cited an NFL source. Wanting, of course, doesn't necessarily mean it will happen. Perry still has one year remaining on his contract, and Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy can deny permission to talk with his safeties coach.

DALLAS - At first, the news seemed ridiculous. Juan Castillo would be the Eagles' new defensive coordinator? Must be a mistake. Upon further reflection, and after hearing Andy Reid's explanation for the decision, the move makes even less sense. Indeed, the more you think about it, the less sense it makes. Every attempt to understand it just raises more questions. Reid wants to give an opportunity to one of his loyal assistants as a reward for his years of intense hard work.

WHEN ANDY REID reversed field and fired defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, the consensus was that he had a replacement in mind. Someone with whom Reid was very familiar; maybe even somebody already on his staff. After all, how else, in good conscience, could Reid vacation in the Caribbean? The consensus was right. Reid already had his man. But the consensus never considered that man would be Juan Castillo, an assistant with the Eagles since 1995 - on the offensive side of the ball.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles are going to hire a defensive coordinator at some point, the Daily News has learned. It just isn't going to be anybody who has been confirmed as a candidate to this point. Various reports late last night said the Denver Broncos had hired Saints secondary coach Dennis Allen as their coordinator. This wasn't a big surprise, since earlier in the day New Orleans Times-Picayune reporters emerged from a session with coach Sean Payton feeling the Saints were preparing to lose Allen either to the Eagles or the Broncos, and then, yesterday evening, a source close to the situation told the Daily News the Eagles were not on the verge of making a hire.
