This FO isn't running a coaching search, they're running a chinese air raid. They are freaking clueless. Larry, Curley and Moe trying to act like they know what they're doing. It's a joke.

The Eagles need to get either Bradley or McCoy. I have an idea that McCoy wants to stay on the west coast and will end up going to San Diego. I hope we get one or the other, because I think they are the best two. If they get Jon Gruden, that would be fine too.

This is getting ridiculous. Jay might bring a decent staff with him if he got the job based on Jon's connections within the NFL, wouldn't beat totally surprised if he somehow talked big brother into running the offense. That would really be the only positive in a Jay Gruden hiring. Hopefully the guy the Eagles want is either in the playoffs or is on vacation and are awaiting word on whether he is for real about coaching this team. I see Gus Bradley interviewed with the Chargers. Nice job Eagles, if you are serious about getting the right guy just interview one.

Both Grudens are bums. This fanbase's obsession with Jon is baffling. This guy will take this team nowhere

Jon Gruden is no bum, Jay is tho. And one again I really don't see what the all the fuss is over McCoy! None of the coaches on the list will make it past 2 seasons anyway with the exception of Lovie. McCoy is not really the OC in Denver, Manning is. On top of that they bought in his old OC from the Colts to be a consultant so what has he really done in Denver besides install a high school offense for Tebow and before then they sucked all the way around.

Why are they wasting their time with this guy when Gus Bradley is the answer for the HC? Gruden is years away from serious consideration as a HC.

Looks like Andy Reid will have his whole coaching staff hired and ready to go before the Eagles hire a water boy muchless a head coach.

They are interviewing Coaches that can take abuse and have egos lined with leather. I guess all the other interviewees have failed the abuse test.

Why interview Jay Gruden when he has already stated that he does not plan to leave the Bengals? Waste of time, waste of man hours! If you fire a coach then you had better have a new coach already lined up! This doesn't bode for a promising season.

There's apparently no strategy in the hiring process other than to interview everyone.

Jay Gruden, your up next, enjoy your Duck cassoulet on Lurie's dime.

Only thing I don't like about that interview with Gus and Chargers is they fired there GM and they can tell him he can hire his own.where on the Eagles side if he doesn't like what Howie has to say why come here

Time is marching on and only the Eagles search is taking an eternity. Lurie is clueless and now in a state of desperation as his top choices are gone. More importantly, the more qualified candidates for support staff/assistants still to be hired by the TBD HC are being sucked up already. FO, get off the dime and make an offer to JON Gruden already. If Jon declines, make an immediate offer to McCoy or Bradley. At this comical pace, we will be the last one on the block to sign a HC from the leftover heap. Your fanbase deserves better.

Of course interviewing Jay Gruden is the Eagles prerogative however as an Eagles fan I must say that I was not impressed with his game plan or play calling against the Texans. What better way to evaluate a Head Coaching candidate than in the stress of preparation for a playoff game?

Brian Kelly is a weak choice. Look at the big games and enough said. Recruiting doesn't count for jack in the pros. Sure ND was outmanned but a blowout? Another bowl loss. He is overrated and throws big baby temper tantums. Not NFL HC material. Please don't hire him.
I like Gus Bradley. Not only do you get proven NFL success, you also take it from another NFC team.
It has been the loss of Jim Johnson that devastated this team. A weak use of defensive personnel has been the constant during this fall from playoff caliber.
A great TE, deep threat WR's, and 3 or4(Polk unknown) RB's. Defense, defense, defense! And control the ball.
A total overhaul isn't needed to reach the top. Injuries made it look worse on O than it is. Sticking to the same scheme when everyone went down was insane but hey so was running wide 9 all the time. Successful coaches today seem to adjust to the personnel they actually have and not run some system and leave players trying to do what they can't.
