Understanding why Lurie might never fire Roseman - NBCSP
Roseman speaks Lurie’s language. He knows not only exactly what Lurie wants to hear but exactly how he wants to hear it. Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that Roseman is remarkably organized, he’s passionate about football and he’s bright enough to be able to articulate a clear vision for the franchise in terms Lurie wants to...

Robert Saleh won’t be the Eagles’ next head coach

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

And then there were five openings.

The next Philadelphia Eagles head coach will NOT be Robert Saleh.

It’s the New York Jets who are instead hiring the San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator to be their new boss. The team officially confirmed as much on Thursday evening.

This news is obviously relevant to the Eagles since Philly interviewed Saleh on Wednesday evening. Saleh was actually the most popular candidate among fans based on BGN’s polling from...

Report: Eagles were “really impressed” with Arthur Smith

The Tennessean-USA TODAY NETWORK

Titans offensive coordinator apparently made a good impression on Philadelphia’s brass.

The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith for their head coaching vacancy on Thursday evening.

And the Eagles were “really impressed” with Smith, according to Derrick Gunn.

It’s probably more meaningful that this report is coming from a plugged-in local guy like Gunn as opposed to a national reporter. The latter source...

Troy Aikman Thinks Eagles Fired Doug Pederson for Picking Hurts over Wentz at QB

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current NFL on Fox analyst Troy Aikman has a very succinct theory for the reasoning behind Doug Pederson's firing by the Philadelphia Eagles : the benching of Carson Wentz...

BGN Radio Episode 164!

Now that we’ve had some time to digest Doug Pederson’s firing, Jeffrey Lurie’s press conference, and rumored Philadelphia Eagles coaching candidates, we talked about it all on the latest BGN Radio podcast episode featuring me, Jimmy Kempski, and special guest Dan Klausner! Read on for more show notes.

Did Doug Pederson prefer Jalen Hurts to start over Carson Wentz?

It looked like Wentz wanted out of Philly fairly recently, but Pederson’s firing may have changed that.

Robert Saleh isn’t the only Niners coach the Eagles should be interested in

One of the more intriguing Head Coach candidates the Eagles have interviewed just happens to be coming from the team that Eagles Owner, Jeffery Lurie, admires the most: the San Francisco 49ers.

Yardbarker: Philadelphia Eagles

Doug Pederson preferred Jalen Hurts over Carson Wentz?

The Philadelphia Eagles made a surprising move when they fired head coach Doug Pederson just three years after he led the team to a Super Bowl title. While the Eagles had a disappointing four-win season in 2020, the decision to fire Pederson may have had more to do about his vision for Carson Wentz than the team’s on-field performance.

Why whoever the Eagles hire will suck

Spoiler alert: most head coaches stink

Having fired the coach who won the Eagles their only Super Bowl, the Eagles are now in search of a new one. Whoever he is, he will almost certainly fail compared to his predecessor, because it’s really hard to win a Super Bowl. And he will probably suck, because most people hired to be a head coach are not cut out to be a head coach. From 2016 to 2018, 20 head coaches were hired, and 13 were...

Report: Eagles expected to lose offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland

Terrible news.

One of the risks that NFL teams run by firing head coaches is the collateral damage of losing valuable position coaches. It appears that Philadelphia now find themselves in that boat with Bruce Feldman reporting that Eagles offensive line coach/run game coordinator Jeff Stoutland is expected to return to Alabama.

Stoutland originally left the Crimson Tide to come to Philly as an original member of Chip Kelly’s staff back in 2013. He was...

Report: Eagles request interview with Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia’s next head coach could come from ... Dallas?

The Philadelphia Eagles requested an interview with Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore for their head coaching vacancy, according to a report from Todd Archer.

This report shouldn’t come as a total shock since the Eagles were rumored to have interest in hiring Moore for their offensive coordinator job last year.

Moore, 32, spent six seasons in the NFL as a reserve quarterback after going...
