USC OC Graham Harrell won't leave for Eagles

USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell won’t leave the school to take on the same role with the Eagles, Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports (on Twitter) hears. It’s not clear whether Harrell would have gotten the job in Philly, but he was among the coaches on their radar. The Eagles bounced Mike Groh earlier this month, shortly after head coach Doug Pederson inadvertently told reporters that he’d be staying on board. Since then, they’ve seen Ravens quarterbacks coach James Urban decline...

Super Bowl LIV is Chiefs vs. 49ers

Should be a good one!

Super Bowl LIV is set: the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will face off in the final game of the 2020 NFL playoffs.

This matchup figures to be a good one. Both teams boast fast and explosive offenses. (Maybe a lesson to be learned here, Eagles?) The Chiefs have the edge at quarterback with Patrick Mahomes looking pretty unstoppable. But the 49ers’ defense will give San Fran a chance to slow KC down.

The rooting interest for Eagles fans in this game is...

Report: Eagles expected to request OC interview with Chiefs QBs coach Mike Kafka

The Eagles are still on the lookout for a new offensive coordinator after firing Mike Groh earlier this month, and their search could lead them to a familiar face. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Philadelphia is expected to request an interview with Chiefs QB coach Mike Kafka. The Eagles drafted Kafka in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, and the Northwestern product spent his first two seasons in the league as Philly’s backup/third-string signal-caller.
