I'm sure he wants to keep the rumour mill spinning, it will be good for his visibility during the Fiesta Bowl, give something for the NFL pundits to jowl about, but he has "unfinished business" or so he said last year in turning down Tampa Bay, I think all the visibility is good for his college career, draws in money from alumni, keeps the college president and the board of regents in awe of his media presence, and in short is great for him irrespective of if he wants to leave the plush and cushy job he already has.

I'm hoping Lurie and Howie don't wait for this guy to make a decision while a viable candidate exists as the music comes to an end and somebody misses a seat

I wish the Eagles would take off the blinders with "offensive guy" and "innovator". Having more snap counts and a faster tempo offense doesn't equal offensive production. Besides, what does it matter how fast you are going if you go three and out? I just wish they would not be so hung up on being a trendsetter. If they were truly doing this, they wouldn't be trying to copycat the Patriots all the time.

All I want is a return to Smash Mouth football with great defense leading the way with turnovers ! Real tackling and intimidating QB's ! An offense that can sustain at least 2 to 3 long time consuming drives leading to touchdowns once in Red Zone. Ball control with ball safety. Is that asking too much ?

I like these moves, more than likely they are cheap and it just sends a message to the under performing players that hey no ones job is garunteed this off season. Everyone needs to work and fight for their job. Camp bodies for sure.
