To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.
To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.
The eagles already have their vp of football operations working for them now his name is Tim Donahoe. Andy Reid will be officially terminated on 12-31-2012 after the eagles last regular season game. After that Tim Donahoe who the eagles hired as senior advisor last spring will take over the football side of things drafting, scouting, and player personnel. Roseman will keep his title of gm, but will be restricted to slary cap, and player contract issues.
There will be no Jon Gruden, Tony Dungy, Bill Cowher type of ex-Coaches interviewing with the Eagles for this is not Donahoe’s personality or style. These are some of the coaches Tim has had a relationship with, and is very comfortable with football wise.
1) Tom Clements (OC/QB Coach of the Packers)
2) Vic Fangio (DC of 49ers)
3) Dave Wannstadt (DC of Buffalo BIlls and longtime friend)
4) Russ Grimm (OL Coach of Arizona, strong Ties from Steeler days)
5) Ray Horton,Jr
There is also a very long shot that Dick Lebeau could be added to the mix due to their very long relationship,but it is a possible.

yes to everyone on that list but dave wannstadt

I still don't want a defensive minded coach to take over. Rather an offensive wiz and hire a great defensive mind.
“I don’t do five year plans — other organizations do, I guess.” - Ruben Amaro Jr
There are more offensive minded wiz's available on the market than there are defensive coordinators possibly available, therefore the only way we can get a defensive wiz is by offering a defensive coordinator on another team our head coaching job. (ex. Horton) But he's a 3-4 guy I think but a great one at that

Anyone who thinks Jon Gruden is a good idea for a HC, please turn on MNF and listen to him
