OUR NEXT COACH

Posted January 03, 2013

OUT of (currently) 8,318 total votes on the Eagles website 53.51% just want the best candidate. What's funny is the next highest vote getter is Defensive-minded coach, at 18.36%. Offensive background is dead last at 6%.

This is (we're told) an offensive league and while it's true that a team needs to be able to score points to win, a team that can manufacture key stops and turnovers will go a lot further than a team that can simply score points. We've seen that show. 

That isn't to say we should go back to the Buddy Ryan style of Offense, where no one really had a clue. But if you're interested in physically tough and tough-minded sort of a team, then you need a coach who either values defense or power running. If you want finesse and trickery then well, get ready to be pissed when you see your QB in Shotgun on 3rd and 1. (I love Andy, but I won't  miss that.) 

I've already said that since Andy's gone, I would like to see a defensive guy (or a ball control guy) come in here. It's nice to see I'm not alone.

 

SIDENOTE: One silver lining to Reid's firing. He won't have to have camp at Lehigh ever again. That hit me last night while I was working on a script, and the thought shut me down for a while. Just sharing.
