MY top 5...
1. Mike McCoy Broncos offensive coordinator
2. David Shaw Head Coach Stanford
3. Chip Kelly Head coach Oregon
4. Vic Fangio 49ers Defensive Coordinator
5. Mike Zimmer Bengals Defensive Coordinator
PENN STATE FOREVER
Off that list, if I were an Eagles fan it would be #2 and #5 for me then everyone else much further down the list.
Rumor is BOB was spotted at Geno's. Everyone knows that they are a overrated tourist trap. Lol on a more serious note, I say Mike McCoy. I don't follow the NFL as much anymore like I do with college, so my opinion is not very relevant (is it ever?).
I have one upvote left, and I am not afraid to use it!!!
I'd take Fangio if he brought Bowman, Willis and Justin Smith with him.
Lurie could do a lot worse than Shaw.

Falcons OC is supposedly on the short list too.
I don't see Shaw taking a job this year. Supposedly just signed an extension with Stanford.
Shaw isn't coming. Chip Kelly doesn't fit the NFL game. Can't recruit any player he wants anymore. I'd be fine with Fangio or Zimmer, but who is the offensive coordinator then? Don't know that answer.
A big must for me is to have a proven talent evaluater take over as the GM. Roseman is a know-it-all who knows nothing about evaluating talent. I know Reid had final say with personnel, but Roseman had his ear. The 2010 and 2011 drafts were just putrid.
If y'all hire Fangio, I'll feel bad. I've seen what happens when he has autonomy, there's a reason he's never been seriously considered for NFL HC jobs in his very long DC career and he was booted down to the college game a few years back.
McCoy is interesting. Shaw would be niiiice. And Zimmerman is really underrated.
Good point there. I think people want Fangio because of his proven track record with defenses and because of how dreadful the Eagles are on defense. I like Zimmer, he'd bring a ton of passion and energy. Then again Juan Castillo said he worked 19 hours a day so I guess passion and energy only take you so far.
This below was inspired by a Vic Fangio defense. He gets fired wherever he goes. His track record is as a Harbaugh coach who gave him little autonomy on how to run his defense. He was first a DC in 1995, he is just now being talked about being a HC because what he accomplished with Jim Harbaugh watching over him.

That clip never gets old.
Maybe some are nervous about Fangio being a HC without Harbaugh like I'd be with Alex Smith as a quarterback without Harbaugh. In Smith's defense, the changeover in coaches in San Francisco was a joke, but he was never even good before Harbaugh came on board and I'm not optimistic about him somewhere else. Only mention him because some Philly fans are clamoring for the Eagles to trade for Smith.
a guy I would like to see us get is Bruce Arians.. Chip kelly would be a major bust. Andy's staff was horrible.. Ill give Howard Mudd a pass being the whole OL was injured. Washburn sucked Bowles sucked April sucked.
Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.
I second that
He's possibly going somewhere, why not send him to your second favorite franchise in the league?

It is the eagles. Who cares!!!! They are going to suck no matter who it is.
This message brought to you by a steelers fan :)
Because the Broncos (as long as Peyton Manning is there) don't need him.
Shaw isnt going to the NFL. Just read a pretty good story on him recently. Surprisingly the story comes from ESPN. Not surprisingly it comes from Ivan Maisel, who is one of their better jouranlists.
David Shaw has exhibited a keen understanding of the art and science of being a head coach in his two seasons in charge at Stanford. It's the other elements inherent to big-time college coaching that seem to escape him. And that's what made him so successful in Palo Alto.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
I love that the only Eagles and Steelers fans that hold a strong dislike (or hatred) for each other are the ones with PSU in common. It's kinda funny. I never, and still don't really, had any hostility towards them. But when I was at PSU all of the fans on both sides loved the "rivalry." Kinda funny. At least the Flyers/Pens one makes sense considering they're in the same division.
why no Mike McCoy love?
Look at his career.... He developed Delhomme into a pro bowl Super Bowl contender, took Orton to his career year, revamped his offense to win a playoff game with Tebow, and revamped his offense for Manning this year.... That is impressive young guy.....
if he was offered an NFL job for the right money he would
Arians... not sold
My own family is divided. Wife from Philly born and raised eagles but our kids are all steelers no matter how much eagle crap the inlaws bought. It all seemed to disapear once it got home.
Not sold on him....
Because Manning runs that offense, same as he did in Indy. That said he's one of those guys that may know when to step back and when to get hands on. And that's great in a CEO. But he never had too much love until he became Manning's OC, that is somewhat of a red flag.
Worst dad ever. Depriving your kids of a lifetime of disappointment that will toughen them up.
