    Adam Schefter just reported on NFL Live that it's unlikely the Eagles will hire Smith. They want an offensive minded coach and someone with a bit more of an edge to re-energize the fan base. Reid and Lovie are the same guy emotion wise.

    They didn't know that before the interview? Typical eagles chasing their tail

    That's why I'm here lol. I want something done on offense though. Something must be addressed with the slow starts and the lack of running game. Let me hear some type of news.

    Do you really think who we hire as a defensive coordinator is a "splash?"

    I actually thought we'd know by now who the guy replacing Rob was. With the way it happened I figured they already had someone in mind and were already in discussions with them yesterday. I'm as surprised that they haven't hired the next one as I was yesterday that they fired Rob in the first place.

    That's the first thing that came to my mind. What a joke of a rule.

    It's a damned Jim Crow rule. I think it is insulting to some great football coaches.

    They have already satisfied Rooney Rule with their interview of the ST coach from the Falcons (Armstrong).

    Try again please.

    If that's the case why not let Ryan enjoy his vacation and fire in person when he was back in town. With the abrupt firing I was expecting a quick announcement.

    That's what makes no sense to me. :confused:

    I think he could have been handled in a better way. Landry was on the golf course.

    ;) :eek::
