Maybe the best way to put it is this: How much of the Eagles' failure in the draft has been an inability to identify talent capable of playing in the NFL, and how much of it has been their inability to develop and/or deploy that talent in a manner that lets them succeed?
Here ...

Reid was/is a very good coach, but his success fell apart when he lost a few assistants and replaced them with questionable/terrible coaches. How much of his success in Philadelphia was a result of his position coaches and coordinators? We all relate to JJ and what he contributed to the team's fortunes and what happened when he left us. Maybe Andy could win the SB if he would contain his duties to CEO and allow his OC to run the offense ... period.

Back to the Eagles, does the quick hook for GLew show the team understands the importance of positional coaches and does it indicate that the poor CB play was more a result of inferior talent than Undlin's coaching?

The other important point in the article is a team's ability to adjust scheme to fit talent, naturally using New England as the example. Pederson seemed to be able to do it but can Schwartz? Was Rowe an indication that he can't/won't or were the player's skills completely contrary to the scheme? IMO this is where it's immensely important to have a GM oversee continuity of scheme, because coaches move on and team's shouldn't be rebuilding when they do. Let's hope the Eagles have defined who they are now and will continue to be and build on that.

Rowe seemed to have a bad attitude. The undrafted CBs and Mills seemed to be playing better.

He probably did not fit what Schwartz wants out of a CB.

They got something for him. I'm okay with that.

I won't be surprised if Belacheat gets more out of him. Some of that might be due to the coaches, some of it might be that there is a better fit. However, the kid may have needed a reality check.

I added the column DAV from my previous extremely popular post about Howies drafting review.

DAV is the career Average value for the team that drafted them. While identifying talent is not a relative strength, they normally keep it around and not it go to other teams.

100% agreed. If he let someone competent run the offense on game day, we wouldn't be having this discussion because he'd still be here and we'd have a couple rings.

Unfortunately, asking him to give that power to his OC is probably like asking The Donald to let Pence run the country.
