One interesting question right now is just how desirable is the Eagles coaching job. Sam Bradford isn’t under contract so the QB situation is somewhat open. There are questions about the power structure with the return of Howie Roseman and the addition of a personnel executive to the mix.
In alphabetical order, here are the job openings:
The Saints job could come open. Beyond that, things now look pretty stable.
NFL.com writer Gregg Rosenthal ranked the openings. He had the Eagles 3rd, behind the Titans and Giants.
3. Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles have more overall talent than their NFC East rivals in New York, but the quarterback situation is murkier. There is also an open question about how Chip Kelly’s talent acquisitions will fit into a new system. Still, we were tempted to put the Eagles ahead of the Giantsbecause the roster is stocked better at every level of offense and defense.
Owner Jeffrey Lurie has a good reputation and the Eagles have been a winning organization throughout his tenure. Howie Roseman, who is running the personnel department again, has been at odds with the previous two head coaches and still remains. That’s a bit of a red flag. Patience will be at a premium here. Chip Kelly got the boot despite a winning record through three seasons.
I think that is fair. Tennessee has an elite young QB in Marcus Mariota. That’s huge in building a strong team. The Giants have great owners and a veteran QB in place.
There is a lot to like about the Eagles job, but there are legitimate questions as well.
