"In the David Akers vs. Asante Samuel Bowl, I'm rooting for Akers to win and advance to the Super Bowl. Just my opinion ..."

Couldn't disagree more, we gave asante money and took his Superbowl that he could have had with the Pats, and does everything we asked of him.than we trade him and have the worst secondary in the league, and he improves Atlanta's to Conference Finals.. Get Deuce his rings, he played hard for us every snap while he was here, he deserves it.

I rooting for the Eagles to hire Gus Bradley for next HC he is my top guy now but I would not be mad if we hired Mike Mccoy or Jon Gruden either.

I want a coach that is self-motivated. Someone who watches endless film and is obsessed with football. Someone who has been able to spend time picking the brains of current NFL & NCAA coaches. Someone who has had some idle time to figure out the different coaches he would hire to be on his staff. It would help if this coach has had some NFL experience. Maybe called his own plays. Maybe someone who knows what it takes to win, Someone who would consider anything but winning the SB a failure. Anyone out there fit this description?

BG, Bradley's D was getting dominated in the intermediate part of the field today. ATL's OC had his team marchingright down the field and SEA's D couldn't seem to stop them. I want to think that Gus told his guys not to give up anything deep and let the middle go? In a very marty style fashion, ATL went away from what was working (in the middle) and that's where SEA was able to gain some ground. I know it's not fair to judge the guy based on one game but from this armchair's point of view, his squad was getting dominated for a good part of the game. I was looking for more I guess.

Yo cheesesteak i agree with you bro, i sure hope they can do that and lead us to the big prize. Get chucky hired, hire his bro as OC, and hire Lovie Smith as DC.

PPW, Gruden is old.. he is 49. Plus he makes mean faces. We can't have that here!

Lol, he makes great faces!! The part where you mention the film watching is where Gruden comes in. I understand that he has insomnia and watching film is how he passes that time.

Biilick was interviewed for 8 hours. I'm going to be straight I think he is pretty much an a**. He definitely thinks he is the smartest guy that walks into every room. He is hard to take but maybe that is what this team needs. Mediocre play will be unacceptable for him.

Now I don't see Roseman hiring him because he would put him in his place real quick. Basically Howie doesn't want to hear every day how he is no Ozzie Newsome.

Now the top candidates have been made available. Cinn., Denver, Seattle are all out of the playoffs. The college guys already said no thank you. If we don't have any announcements come in shortly things will be getting desperate. The only guy left out there worth looking at that is still in the running would be Roman for S.F. If they aren't announcing a hire in the next day things will be looking bleak. By Thur. it becomes more of who will take the job than who the team wants. Guys are refusing the job as HC of Philly that tells you so much in a nutshell right there.

My take. If I was doing my job as part of the Eagles interview team. I would have sat down the longest with Billick and Chip Kelly. My reason would be to soak up info like a sponge. From Billick because he has a lot of NFL experience and knows coaches. Kelly offers his offensive system and I would want to know what he and Belicheck talk about. I don't think the length of the interview matters in their desire to hire anyone ...any more or less. BTW, I also think its in the Eagles best interest that if there is a 2% chance that consider Jon Gruden, that its best if they interview everyone else first. No need to interview him and keep him waiting, you already know what he brings to the table, he will cost more, so see if anyone esle is worth consideration and then talk to him to compare your notes.

Ham, still 5 teams that need a coach. Thursday means squat. College coaches are staying put... real shocker there!!! You have some GB coaches and I'm sure a few others that can be interviewed. Nobody else seems in a rush... that should tell you something too... no?

I don't want any coaches from the packers or patriots. Packers are good because of Rodgers, when he played bad they lost hard. As for the patriots unless they are stealing the "man in the hoody" the rest are just airhead pawns. I can't honestly see us going to the play offs any time soon. We have to many players who don't care about that, as long as they get their game checks 16 times a year that's all that matters to them, I doubt they even care if they win or lose.

CCL, forget playoffs... its about Superbowl. the last 8 years was about playoffs... I miss the 2002-04 years! The NFC is so bad though that anything can happen next year.

San Diego, Cleveland, Arizona and Jacksonville fired their GMs. So I wouldn't say being lumped in with those messes is ideal.

CCL... what is your opinion about the Bengals, Redskins, Vikings and Colts this year. Basically what the Eagles have been over the last 8 years. Some seasons they underachieved or had some bad luck, others like 2008 the planets aligned ...and 2006 where Reid did a great job coaching. Compare that to the teams the Eagles had from 2002-04. This current group of Eagles players has had a ceiling like the teams I mentioned above, with the last two years being underachieving. Its missing a lot of ingredients that true elite teams have. Attitude, experience and talent. Long way to go... but if you are worried about the first step of just making the playoffs. When you play in a division that lacks a true contender, anything can happen. In the end te goal should be more.

Ham, the Bears were 10-6... no coach yet.

Ham, don't overlook the fact that guys looking to be NFL coaches have to lump us in with those ""messes" So why worry that we would lose out to those teams because we are being patient?

Until the team finds a TRUE franchise QB, it won't get much better.
