There are more black coordinators coaching this weekend than there are black head coaches.

I think NFL owners are kinda racist. Yes. Even the minority one.

The biggest scandal is someone hiring Josh McDaniels.

He did draft and win a playoff game with Tim Tebow.

Ugh. I really wish I understood what the hell is going on with the Eagles lately. It's embarrassing.

sinner4ever: Rapmaster2000: The biggest scandal is someone hiring Josh McDaniels.

Ha. McDaniels wouldn't even play Tebow.

Tebow didn't get to start until McDaniels was fired before his 2nd season was over and the interim coach put him in. He started that season 3rd on the depth chart behind Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn. (so courageous).

And even the next year, he still sat behind Orton for a few games.

To make matters worse. A year and a half later after Tebow was cut from the Jets, he couldn't make the Patriots team..where McDaniels was once again the OC.

The team previously interviewed New England Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo

Are we already trying to find the next Mike Vrabel?  Belichick's coaching tree not working out, let's try his player tree.
 
2021-01-19 6:43:13 PM  
McDaniels was shiat in St. Louis and was run out of Denver. He's nothing without Brady and Belichick.
 
2021-01-19 6:47:49 PM  
So you're saying that Bieniemy will still be available when Nagy gets fired next season?
 
2021-01-19 6:50:38 PM  
I'd trade McDaniels for Bieniemy.
 
2021-01-19 6:54:33 PM  
I hope whatever team winds up hiring him has a press conference in which the team owner declares, "We have met Bienemy. And he is us."

2021-01-19 7:43:35 PM  
Could it be that because the Patriots dropped off so hard without Brady, that GM's are giving pause to hiring an OC just because they worked with an amazing QB?

McDaniel's prospects dried up (he also burned the Colts, so that's something) and now Bienemy isn't getting looks allegedly

Or could it be that GMs are Bi and they don't want to hire a Bi-enemy?
.
It's a toss-up
 
2021-01-19 7:48:28 PM  
With Reid doing a hefty part of the play calling, I'm not as high on Bienemy being a good HC as some people are.

I selfishly hope he stays OC with the Chiefs and then takes over when Andy Reid retires.

People are bringing up scandals from Bieniemy's time as Colorado coach and a number of things that happened  20-30 years ago as reasons he's not getting a look, as well as uncertainty over his actual role in KC's offense; it's generally assumed that Andy Reid is the guy who makes the offense work, so no-one really knows how much credit to give Bieniemy for the offense.

That said, a lot of the old stuff probably would get overlooked if he was white.

I seriously dont know, but would that play into it if he was an awful person, not just black?

There's also the precedent of Nagy and Pederson getting hired from the exact same role.

gunsmack: I thought the Eagles were going to do something right, and hire Duce Staley for HC.


If the Eagles were going to do something right, they would've fired Howie Roseman rather than Doug Pederson.

Andy Reid's record with Howie Roseman as GM: 22-26 (0.458), 1 playoff appearance.

Andy Reid's record without Howie Roseman as GM: 199-104-1 (0.656), 15 playoff appearances, 8 conference championship appearances, 2 Super Bowl appearances, 1 Super Bowl victory.

Bith Set Me Up: If the Eagles were going to do something right, they would've fired Howie Roseman


That's a given.

As I said in an previous Eagles thread: Howie has to have video of Lurie banging a 12yo. No other explanation for his continued employment.

Bienemy would have been a head coach LAST year or before if he were white.

FFS Peyton Manning drug his balls on a trainer's face and nobody cared then OR now.

I'm trying to figure out why the Eagles are interviewing non-offensive / defensive coordinators for their head coach position.

Who goes from linebacker or running back coach directly to head coach?

I know the NFL has some significant racial disparity issues in general, but for Bienemy specifically, isn't there a rule that says you can't interview a coach while his current team is still in the playoffs?  That would seem to eliminate him from all current job openings until the Chiefs lose.

Zac Taylor jumped straight from Rams QB coach to Bengals head coach, for whatever that is worth.

I wouldn't mind Bieniemy still being available when Taylor inevitably gets canned after Burrow hits a sophomore slump, but if Bieniemy doesn't want to put up with the Eagles' front office, no chance in hell he's willing to put up with Mike Brown. 

/Fire Mike Brown

Yeah, but if there is a hierarchy of position coaches, QB coach is probably at the top.  Also, not a position coach, but Joe Judge was just a special teams coordinator.  I couldn't remember if Vrabel spent any time as a DC, but apparently he was for all of one season.

Yes, and it's BS. You can't interview a winning postseason coach, but the losers are available. You should only be able to interview after the Superb Owl.

madgonad: Who goes from linebacker or running back coach directly to head coach?


As mentioned, Andy Reid went from QB coach of the Packers to Eagles HC. John Harbaugh (you know, the sane one) went from special teams and d-back coach of the Eagles to HC of the Ravens.

OTOH, look how many of Belichick's OCs and DCs quickly flamed out as HCs.

Incorrigible Astronaut:

Hmm.
Nagy - 12-4, 8-8, 8-8 with 2 playoff appearances in 3 years (with Trubisky/Foles) and COTY award.
Pederson - 7-9, 13-3, 9-7, 9-7, 4-11-1 with 3 playoff appearances in 5 years with one SB (and Wentz/Foles/Hurts at QB).

So I think most teams would take that.

Other Reid assistants that bedame HC:
Brad Childress, Minnesota Vikings
John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens
Steve Spagnuolo, St. Louis Rams
Leslie Frazier, Minnesota Vikings
Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers, Washington Football Team
Pat Shurmur, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants
Todd Bowles, New York Jets
Sean McDermott, Buffalo Bills

Burrow won't survive long enough for a sophomore slump.

In fairness to Mike Brown, it was his daughter and her doltish husband who hired Taylor, and she seems to be the one currently running the day-to-day operation of the team.

*WHY THE HELL IS MCDANIELS BEING CONSIDERED FOR ANYTHING????*

The guy is a 100% weasel. He one of the guys who's learned all of the wrong lessons from Belichick.He'll probably accept the job, and bail a week later, like he did with the Colts. Or worse, stick around for a couple of years, screw things up even more, and then leave. (Although, in the latter case, maybe he'll mess up enough to take out Howie as collateral damage, which would almost be worth it.)

This year has made it so obvious that I'd favor a players' strike over it moreso than any 17th game or other contract negotiations.
