The Eagles stay patient in their search for a head coach
With the LA Chargers and Detroit Lions coming to an agreement with coaches, the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans are the only two teams that remain searching for their next head coach. The Houston Texans appear to be an absolute dumpster fire, as it was reported on Sunday that it is the “most undesirable job” in the NFL.
As if things couldn’t get any worse for the Texans, their franchise QB seems to have played his last season with the team and is now requesting a trade. According to reports, there is a growing sense from inside the Houston Texans organization that Deshaun Watson’s feelings towards the team and him wanting to be traded cannot be changed.
Watson’s frustration started once the Texans traded their star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins this past offseason. This is all great news for Eagles fans. Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie will have the ability to be patient for the rest of this coaching search and pick the best coach available.
Looking at the remaining coaches, here are top candidates (in no particular order) for the Philadelphia Eagles. Two Coaches on this list (Eric Bieniemy & Brian Daboll) won’t be able to be interviewed until their team is eliminated from the Playoffs.
- Eric Bieniemy
- Joe Brady
- Brian Daboll
- Duce Staley
- Josh McDaniels
The last coach on this list seems to have impressed Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie and it seems that fans have mixed feelings regarding this news.
The Philadelphia Eagles sat down with New England Patriots OC Josh McDaniels for quite some time on Sunday in Florida. McDaniels has had his ups and downs in the league but has been apart of six Super Bowl-winning teams. Arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady had great things to say about McDaniels in 2019. They both led the Patriots to a top 10 offense, as they were 7th in total points. I don’t know if Mcdaniels is the right guy for this job, but it’s obvious that Jeffery Lurie liked what he heard this past Sunday in Florida.
