As the Eagles continue their due diligence on the search for a new head coach, the question (one of many) arises: Is it best to look offense, defense or does it not really matter in the big picture? ...

Dave...that is true. There could be candidates we don't know about who are...or will be on our radar. Brian Kelly was a surprise name for an interview. I had not heard him mentioned with us prior to today.

Poor Eagles, we settle for a qb like Foles! We really will be the laughing stock for a few years to come. And a lame duck coach to compilment him.

Do you think the league is trying to reel in the salary cap so that the new franchise in LA can hit the ground running?

that is a huge market, and a stadium is being built now. Somebody is moving there...Jacksonville...San Diego...I don't see a 33rd team. $$$ always play a role.

I will try to stop my Reid bashing so I will give him credit for McNabb and Jim Johnson but every time I read about what a QB guru he is, I have to laugh. Favre is like Manning and Brady-he makes you look good even if a monkey was coaching him. McNabb may have actually been better if he wasn't stuck with a system that didn't fit him. I'm moving on knowing we will be at least as good for the next 14 years unless we win the Super Bowl, in which case we will be better. Let's get a good coach and move forward.

So Goodell wants to add games maybe add playoff teams. Do you think he wouldn't add another team?

Keith Butler is the guy I want. His name hasn't been mentioned...

oh...he could add a 33rd...but it throws the divisional alignment from '02 out of whack. I bet they want to move an existing team.

Thanks on Keith Butler. I have not heard him mentioned for HC.

oh yes I agree they have been wanting to move a team for quite some time to LA. Minn. seemed like it could have happened. Not sure if they can move any though. They(NFL) want a team badly in LA. I was thinking about how expansion has been handled in the past. Carolina and Jax were setup nicely and were given juicy options of a couple franchise players not to mention picks. The Browns on the other hand were given the shaft. the league made it very clear they were coming so every team could lock up any slightly valuable players. Goodel is going to make sure the LA franchise is gifted all that he can if he awards them a new franchise. Seeing how the Eags luck has been going they probably will have the first pick and have it stolen by LA.

My thoughts led me to that if the league can squeeze the salary cap down that would really benefit a new franchise

Whoever the next coach is, regardless of where he came from, better be a good leader and have his ear to the ground on who are the up and coming coordinators and have an eye for evaluating talent. If he doesn't know how to surround himself with a network of great assistants, grade out the current roster accordingly and judge the incoming talent from the college ranks then these next few years will be dark days indeed. However, I will keep the faith that Lurie will get the right guy. The wild card in all this is Roseman and how well of a job he really is capable of doing and how well he can work with the new HC. Alot of variables. Possibly one of the reasons they are having trouble landing that perfect candidate

At this point they might as well take their time to get the right guy. There's no candidate out there right now that they should "jump on" or they'll lose him. Take your time and get the guy.

Whole9...I don't understand why you and some others on here are so quick to condemn Foles. He's doing better at this stage of his game than Eli and a few others were.
Give the guy a chance. From what I've seen, baring the rookie mistakes, i think he will be a very good quarterback

Big Sky I agree with getting the right guy. There is more to it than just getting a HC though. You need an OC, a DC, position coaches...AR has a big advantage being able to interview and setup his entire staff now. The longer you wait the less those positional coaches will be available
