A Philadelphia Catholic League Product who knows this city and it's culture real well.

He's worlds above where he was when he left here, and one of the most sought out candidates.

McDermott would be a good hire..

Chuck Pagano, anyone?

I'm guessing it's going to be McDermott... because... Eagles!

Didn't we fire McDermott and promote our O-Line coach to DC? I can't imagine he enjoyed the way that played out.

Maybe, but I'm thinking if there's an experienced coach available Lurie will go that route. Shurmer is an interesting thought, and he could bring back Bill Lazor as OC. There would be some continuity on offense but they have to get a new DC. Sunday's game could be sort of a job interview, but I still want them to pick in the top 10. sad.gif

Hue Jackson or Adam Gase please. We need someone who can develop a QB.

This team as constructed seems tailor made for a guy like Bill Cowher. A 3-4 defense and a couple of big RBs to play smashmouth football. A couple of tweaks here and there...plus adding a real Fullback and I can see us rolling again.

How about Dirk Koetter or David Shaw? Koetter and Hue Jackson are well respected with NFL experience but Shaw will probably want to stay at Stanford.

McDermott was fired because the defence had a poor season when he became the full time DC rather than simply taking over from Johnson just before the season started. He's developed a great deal as a co-ordinator since those early days.

He wasn't fired so that Castillo could replace him - there was a long gap whilst Reid tried to find a new DC before making the much derided decision to switch a good OL coach to the other side of the ball.

So Castillo is a red herring here.

That may be accurate, but how would you feel if you were McDermott? Management failed to recognize that the D wasn't good, even while under JJ. McD was the first scapegoat. As for Castillo, he was a casualty of bad management.

If McDermott wants to be a head coach then there are only 32 such jobs and the number of vacancies at any given time is limited, so it makes sense for him to take the opportunity. He may feel that somewhere else offers better prospects, but I'd be surprised if he regards what happened here as anything other than just business.

Look at how Trotter was happy to be back here after being very critical of the team when he left.

The difference is that Trotter was on the downside of his career, and was happy to have a job to contribute to. McDermott is on the upswing. He is one of the hotter NFL commodities. More importantly, coaches tend to have a longer shelf life than players.

Trotter was in his prime when that all went down.

If I'm not mistaken, Reid fired McD, not any of the people still here.

He played another four years in the NFL, and was happy to come back here.

So he had more reason to be annoyed about how the Eagles negotiated, whereas new co-ordinator whose defence was struggling was in a weak position and would understand that. McDermott will have to be ready to fire an underperforming co-ordinator when he is a head coach.

The decision was Reid's, and he isn't here any more.

Throwing a name out here...

How about Tom Clements from Green Bay? He's been in the league for a long time and was instrumental in developing Aaron Rogers.
