The Eagles continued their thorough search for a new head coach on Monday, interviewing Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, adding more names to a thick stack ...

Spuds:

How about a reaction to Jason LaCanfora's remark's on Howie Roseman as a possible "road block" to hiring a new HC?

How about JON GRUDEN as a potential HC candidate? Seems like he's been endorsed by anyone and everyone as a legit and interested candidate. Have the Eagles even called him?

Kenny Whisenhunt....nice OC for Pittsburgh prior to head coaching the Cards....He has been to one Super Bowl. Do you think we can make a move there? I would give my last cassock to be a fly on the wall during the interview process of Whisenhunt, Lovie Smith, Billick, and Arians (tomorrow). I would think a mix of these four fellas somehow - someway would get us back into the playoffs. We really do have the talent...Maybe just need a pair of safeties. O-line coming back, running game works, receiving corp better than average. Need a punter, FS, SS, and one more linebacker....other than that we are not that far away.

Woody, your last post from the last blurg may be on to something. Perhaps Gruden (and other candidates for that matter) may want more power than what is being offered.

Either way, the clock is ticking as we head toward our impending DOOM.

>>PPW: it was clear the AR path was a dead end. He was removed a season too late. So, Lurie is taking steps to change course. I wish I know what Lurie meant by "innovation" and "trends in the NFL"....I think execution is the key element. Padre noted some old school coaches above...and the hallmark of their successful squads...tough play and execution in the clutch. That would be a welcome change from gimmicks and tricks.

Have to admit, I am very curious to see how Doug Pederson turns out as OC. Happy that he is getting a shot in KC.

I don't see Billick as a working coach any longer. He is a "figurehead". I do see Lovie Smith as a hard working HC and inspires his players.
