Bill Belichik and Pete Carroll's first trips to the NFL weren't rousing successes either, but no one is complaining now. I agree that Sabin isn't leaving, but don't be naïve to think that he couldn't be successful at the NFL level in the right situation.

He went 9-7 with Gus Frerotte and Sage Rosenfels as his QBs in his first year and then 6-10 the next season with Joey Harrington, Dante Culpepper with one knee, and Cleo Lemon. I'd hardly call his time in the NFL a failure.

Graham might be able to transition to a 3-4 OLB and thrive. They would need a big, nasty NT, though. Don't know if Star would still be available. I don't know if that type of change would be the best move for the Eagles, but I am ready for something fresh, that is for sure. And if we hire a younger HC, I would prefer veteran coordinators. At least one of the two.

Yup. I dislike Saban as much as anyone, mostly for his arrogance, but his NFL time was only average because he never got to get they guy at QB that he wanted. I believe he was adamant about getting Brees, and he eventually ended up in New Orleans. We all know how that turned out for the Saints. He had to settle for Culpepper who was already past his prime.

This. I'm honestly convinced that a lot of guys will turn down the job solely because Roseman is the GM.

Well with the candidates left, I think they would just be happy to get a HC position. It's the coaches in high demand that you have to worry about.

I would be very surprised if this was the case. There are few GM/Head coach positions left in the league, mainly because people see this hasn't worked well over the years. Reid getting full control in KC was pretty shocking in that regard.

Most candidates will expect to work with a GM, particularly guys who haven't been HC before. The Eagles position certainly has plenty of draws: a major franchise, a huge and dedicated fanbase (I guess this could go either way), good facilities, an owner who wants to win, and plenty of national exposure on TV.

My first choice would be McCoy, and if he could get a Romeo Crennel that would be nice. After that is the Seattle DC (forget his name) or Bruce Arians, who has done a hell of a job in Indy this year.

For the love of God, though, NO GRUDENS. And Saban, after his BS at the end of his run with the Dolphins where he tucked his tail between his legs and ran away to Alabama, can suck it too.

Gus Bradley. He's got that fire. We basically need a coach that will come in and have press conferences and make speeches to get the players and the fans to believe again. The same thing O'Brien did with Penn State.

Im starting to lean towards Saban, but they probably have no interest.

I read somewhere (Twitter?) that Lovie Smith is being interviewed. I'd be more than happy to have him.

EDIT:

The Eagles announced Tuesday that Smith will interview with the team on Thursday. Smith's nine-season run with the Chicago Bears came to an end when he was fired by the team last Monday.

I don't think any of the coaches interviewed want full control. They just know Roseman is a terrible GM.

Saban is not going to leave Alabama. He's on the top of the college football world and he still makes a hell of a salary at Alabama. Plus, I think his act wears thin on a lot of professional players. He's a his way or the highway kind of guy; and that's the kind of attitude that NFL egos rebel against.

I don't want a coach that is cool with semi-solid turds like Watkins being drafted in the first round. Roseman has got to go before this team will succeed, but Lurie doesn't have the stones.

I have no idea why that fetus head Lurie has such a commitment to Roseman.

He just signed him to an extension, that's why.

Woah. I may be able to get behind that. A bit of a gimmicky offense, but the guy has won everywhere he's been.

Not if Shanahan is his coach. Mike once played Terell Davis when he had such a bad migraine he couldn't see, and last week played a clearly injured franchise quarterback who couldn't run or throw.

One would think a blind player, or a QB who can't throw or run, should be sat so they don't hurt themselves. Mike? Nah. Cart em out! Let's see what happens!
