We mentioned last night that Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg got into a “heated discussion” on the sideline last night.

Now we have a few more details on the matter.

Howard Eskin of 610 WIP Radio and NBC 10 reports that Washburn questioned Mornhinweg’s playcalling after an early Eagles interception. (Philly threw three straight passes to give the ball back to New England.)

Derrick Gunn of reports that the two men actually had to be separated by Eagles sideline personnel. The tumult came early in the game, when the Eagles actually held a lead.

“Players added that the team has too many people in the locker room with opinions, but not enough true leaders,” Gunn writes.

Expect to hear a lot more of the same over the next five weeks in Philadelphia.
