Eagles' Allen 'not contemplating suicide' after key blown coverage


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Eagles safety Nate Allen could be an easy choice as a scapegoat after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He did bite on a fake inside that allowed Cardinals wide receiver John Brown to haul in a 75-yard touchdown in the final minutes to secure a win for Arizona.

But Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis isn't buying it. He said he is "absolutely confident" in Allen and he doesn't shoulder all the blame for getting beat on one play.

"I watch every play Nate has. Nate had a very good game. He had one bad play," Davis said, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "[Allen] wasn't the only one. The pass rush wasn't what it was supposed to be, and the quarterback had the step-up lane. Cary (Williams) could have gotten higher quicker for the insurance, for if you [Allen] do take the wrong step -- he took one false step and got beat big."

Allen being under scrutiny isn't new, but he doesn't seem to be beating himself up too much over one bad play.

"Through the years, I've definitely matured as a player and just as a man. You go through things on this level. Sometimes your character's tested," Allen said. "Football is what I do, it's not who I am. At the end of the day, there's greater problems going on. So I'm not contemplating suicide or anything like that."


Eagles not looking to upgrade at safety from Nate Allen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly denied Monday a report the team is looking to upgrade at safety from Nate Allen. In fact, Kelly backed Allen, who was beat in the final minutes Sunday at Arizona on wide receiver John Brown's game-winning, 75-yard touchdown catch.

"I think Nate got beat once," Kelly said Monday, per CSNPhilly.com. "I think he made two outstanding plays. You look at the fumble and recovery [Allen caused in the third quarter], did a hell of a job there.

"Other than that, he bit the cheese and he admits it. I don’t think he can be defined by one play. There were two 'X' plays in the game, one 80-yarder and one 75-yarder and besides that I thought our defense played outstanding all day long against a really, really good offense. I think Nate’s played well this year and I’m real, real happy with Nate."
