Flipadelphia

John DeFilippo was a fantastic QBs coach for the Eagles in 2016 and 2017. His work earned him a job as the offensive coordinator for the Vikings. Not all that long ago, Flip was being talked about as a potential head coaching candidate for the upcoming job cycle.

Tuesday was a reminder that NFL truly means “not for long”.

Wow.

The hot topic now is whether the Eagles should bring him back.

Yes. Hell yes.

Let’s be clear about this. Flip isn’t some genius who is going to come in and save the Eagles. He just got fired because the Vikings offense was struggling in a big way. Flip is a good coach, but he’s not a magician.

At the same time, if he can help the Eagles at all, you hire him. Maybe he suggests one key Red Zone or third down play. Maybe he sees something the other coaches don’t. Maybe Flip comes in and connects with Carson Wentz right away and is able to get him to play better.

This is an interesting take from Tim. I disagree, but respect the heck out of him so his opinion made me think twice about whether the Eagles should pursue Flip.

Forgive me for taking a page out of the Jim Schwartz playbook, but the current coaches have the team at 6-7. The Eagles are 21st in scoring. If the current coaches were doing a better job, there wouldn’t need to be a discussion about Flip coming back.

The Eagles, crazy as this sounds, still have a chance to make the playoffs. I think the organization owes it to everyone to do everything they can to get into the postseason. The time for player acquisitions is over. But there is now a coach on the market who might be able to help.

Hire him. Create some advisory position and then sort out the details in the offseason. For now, find a way to add him to the mix and see if he can help get this thing turned around at the last minute.

Flip might not make a difference at all, but it is worth it to take a shot and see if he can help.

I liked Hall coming out of Texas A&M. His career has been disappointing so far. We’ll see if a change of scenery can bring out the best in him.

Hall is 6-5 and about 270. He’s a solid athlete. Hall has the size you love in a DE. I’m curious to see if he can become a solid role player for the Eagles.

Scott is a small RB. He’s 5-7, 203. He’s athletic and fast. He can catch the ball and has return skills. The Eagles signed him off the Saints practice squad.

Les and I had the same thought. If you don’t promote Pumphrey, you’re basically telling him he’s got no future here.

*****

Hawkins has some starting experience in the past so when the Eagles lose another two or three corners this week, they can promote Hawkins to the roster and make him a starter again.

That’s going to happen, right?
