With the Eagles season officially over, the discussion now shifts to next year and the prospects of changes hopefully coming across the board. Yeah, not likely. Still, there’s the draft and free agency and the hope that next year they finally get it right. Or at least get it wrong enough that they execute Order 66 on the front office and start over.
Here’s a sampling of what’s being talked about right now on the PSC Eagles message board. Click the thread title to get the latest news and updates and to participate in the discussion:
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Rams owner Stan Kroenke plans to fire head coach Steve Spagnuolo after the season. According to Union-Tribune, it is “all but certain” that Spagnuolo will join Andy Reid’s staff as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator.
Thread: So What Changes?
All offseason we’re going to hear about how the lockout is the real reason we didn’t win and how things will be great next year, so does anyone see anything at all changing?
The thing that gets me the most is somehow the lockout wasn’t a big enough hurdle to prevent them from getting all those 4th quarter leads, but when they blew lead after lead because their d-coordinator is completely overmatched and their ignorant, arrogant, fat coach won’t run the ball, I fail to see how the lockout can be blamed.
In the end we now have a lower pick (not that it matters with Howie), will lose a big cog in the offense and have two coaches responsible for our schemes that will be another year older and who knows if they even want to come back. Does Andy think Mudd is here forever? If not, can they still run his scheme which seems to be finally working? What can we legitimately expect in the offseason? Will Andy finally come to the linebacker party, 2 years too late, just like he did with receivers? Will they actually do something with the safeties? Is Asante or DRC all but gone?
Wasting a season the way they did is completely unacceptable, and yet nothing significant will change.
