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 Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved closer to making Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis their head coach yesterday, discussing a contract and working to assemble an offensive staff. While there was no official word from the club on the status of the search, a formal announcement likely will come early next week. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Lewis could be named head coach today. That would allow general manager Rich McKay and Lewis time to hammer out details of a contract and make several important decisions, including who will become Tampa Bay's fourth offensive coordinator in as many seasons.

In a stunning turnabout, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers abandoned plans yesterday to hire Baltimore defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis as their head coach. The Buccaneers' director of communications, Reggie Roberts, confirmed that talks between the team and Lewis' agent, Ray Anderson, broke off just 24 hours after the two sides appeared headed toward an agreement. Anderson told CNNSI.com that general manager Rich McKay had told him that the team's owners had not been comfortable with Lewis.

The ax fell first on Johnnie Lynn. Could it fall again, and if so, who will it descend upon next? The Eagles announced Saturday that they "released" Lynn not long after CBSSports.com initially reported that the secondary coach was out. It is unclear when Andy Reid relieved Lynn of his duties, although the Eagles coach has been conducting exit interviews with his staff over the last week. The Eagles aren't expected to make changes within their offensive coaching staff, but there could be additional moves made on the defensive side of the ball, a source close to the situation said.

The Eagles brought some much-needed experience to their defensive coaching staff Tuesday, hiring Johnnie Lynn as their cornerbacks coach. The team also promoted four other coaches from within and hired Bobby April's son. The Eagles also claimed cornerback Isaiah Trufant off waivers from the New York Jets. The most significant move was adding Lynn, who has 17 years of NFL coaching experience and will become a secondary/cornerbacks coach. He last worked with the San Francisco 49ers as a secondary coach and special assistant to the head coach but left the team in early December for what were described as "personal reasons.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, said yesterday that the NFL's new Jacksonville team could be penalized severely if it tries to hire away his coach, Jimmy Johnson. The Florida Times-Union reported that the Jaguars met with Johnson last week in Miami, and that the coach expressed interest in joining the expansion team. "If Jacksonville contacts him, it's very much against the rules, and the club could be subject to severe penalty," Jones said. Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver denied that a meeting had taken place.

The more the New York Giants change, the Eagles say, the more they stay the same. As they prepare for a Monday night game against their NFC East rivals, coach Andy Reid and quarterback Donovan McNabb see the same tough Giants defense. "They still have most of their guys back from last year," McNabb said. "You watch them on film and you can see them flying around the ball and still doing some of the same things they've been doing. " "Their defense is very similar," Reid said.

The Eagles' new defensive coaching staff gathered for the first time Wednesday morning, and it wasn't hard to imagine the group taking Sean McDermott's playbook from last season and ripping it apart. While none of the coaches assembled directly said it, the complexities of McDermott's defense - of which there were many - will be abandoned in favor of a scheme that is more primal in its approach. Each made use of the word simple , or some form of it, when asked to describe what kind of defense new coordinator Juan Castillo would employ.
