Head Coaching Candidates

110 posts in this topic

The most important position in the front office is general manager. I would like to see us find a GREAT one who knows how to draft well before we move forward on finding a better head coach.

The question is, who is out there and will Richardson spend the money to hire them?

Hurney has had some positives but has failed to draft well late. We are struggling because of it. Hurney can't land a great return specialist or corner-back to save his life!!!

Wish we had Mike Nolan at D coordinator and a dude to stand behind Chud to edit his insane playcalling at times...

chud: lets go wildcat with Deangelo...

Guy standing behind him: Ahem! Cough! Nope..bad move

chud: your right! Lets pound this ball in a tight I formation and use a play action if needed..no need to be cute at this point of the game!

WE ALL WIN!

Not going to argue here.

I have just always been a bit leery of McD.

We need help at DT, CB, S, and DE.

Those positions are sooooo important, and Hurney does not seem to care.

Again, the pick should have been Cox.

What is Fletcher Cox doing this season?

Cowher is far more agressive.

Cowher had one of the greatest general managers in Pittsburgh when he coached there. You take him away, you just have another angry coach on the sidelines that looks pissed off for the fans but never wins anything.

Think of Ditka in New Orleans. His anger started to ware off with Chicago and it was no longer effective on the team. After years, he was just a grumpy old guy that nobody respected. He went to the Saints and his "toughness" didn't work there either. BUT at least the fans in New Orleans enjoyed seeing an emotional coach, right? Sure... :)

McDermott hasn't shown anything to suggest he's very good at his job. Not in Philly (fired for being terrible) and not here (2 seasons now with a laughable defense).

Not true. His last year in Philly his D generated more turnovers than one outside 2 teams....with weak talent by Philly standards.

He was scapegoated in Philly. Hasn't done much here....but talent is a big issue here. Thinking someone can make lemonade with poo ain't realistic

McDermott, 36, came under heavy criticism in a season in which the Eagles allowed a franchise-high 31 touchdown passes and had the worst red-zone defense in the NFL.

An they also generated more turnovers than almost everyone.

Listen to Philly fans, they don't sugar coat....he had talent issues and Andy Reid pooped the bed and should of been fired. McD was sacrificed and Reid continued.

Team made it rough on a D with talent issues....

Reid should of been fired. Yeah, McD wasn't great....but Philly has bigger issues.

We scapegoated a DC before.

Somewhat random thought on coaching and the FO...

1) McDermott and/or Rivera had the D ready to play yesterday, and we should have won. That said, there are certain questions I would be asking were I JR, like, why is our best coverage linebacker being pulled from the game on passing downs? I'm still undecided on McDermott.

2) I'm pretty much done with Rivera. Forget the punt/go for it discussion; that does not factor into for me. My complaint is his tendency to basically give up at critical times. He did it last year in our final game against NO, punting the ball to them in the 4th quarter when we still at least had the possibility of doing something to get back in the game. Then the 2 minute drill at the end of the 1st half yesterday, in which he sent his team the clear message that he didn't think they were good enough to move the ball down the field and score, and sent the message to the D that he didn't think they could stop Atlanta if necessary. And today, in his press conference, he bristled at anyone even asking him about it, saying he didn't understand why it was even a question. I do not believe he is the right person to lead this team at this moment.

3) Marty has left us way short on talent in a few spots, and has to take responsibility for it. Last year, it was going into the season with just 3 DT's, 2 of them rookies, and the other a 2nd year player. We all saw the results. This year, we go into the season with just 4 CB's, including a 5th round rookie, a guy who was toast all last year, and a young project, formerly of Dallas. Sign a damn vet or two and give this team a chance to win.

All that being said, I'm confident there will be no consequences for Ron or Marty. It's just the way it is and apparently we have to live with it.

I am still firmly behind the team and will cheer just as loud as I ever have, but the realization has hit home for me that we have some deficiencies that probably will not be overcome until there are fundamental changes in how the team is run.
