Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk put out his Power Rankings a couple days ago, and here’s what he had to say about the Eagles:
30. Eagles: Good luck persuading a new coach to take over an aging roster with cap issues and no franchise quarterback in a division that faces Eli Manning, RG3, and the Cowboys twice per year.
I can’t say I disagree with the placement, but the blurb is one part inaccurate, two parts stupid.
Then later, I was alerted to this piece by Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com, who ranked the most ideal potential coaching openings. Jeremiah is a writer I respect, but let’s just say I found his rankings puzzling.
And so, those two articles spurred Tommy Lawlor of IgglesBlitz.com and I to discuss the potential job openings around the league and what franchises would be the most appealing, and what you have here is podcast gold. Seriously though, it’s a good episode, so I demand you listen. Now! Go!
