And yet somehow favored on the road Monday! Against a team they already beat on the road, back in another universe.
Obviously they should have beaten both Seattle and Arizona, but if either of those games had been in September or October it would have been a blip, like the Jets game. Conversely they should or at least could have lost to Dallas at home, Buffalo and KC and the spiral would have felt a lot less abrupt (and there might not even be a playoff game to talk about).
We know Howie isn't going anywhere so he's gonna have a lot of work to do, just on the roster alone. Keeping Sirianni not an easy call, though I think he's a decent head coach. Last year's coordinators weren't covering for him; they were just good, and these guys aren't. It was a mistake not to promote the defensive coordinator from within due to Gannon being perceived as bad (don't forget they also lost the secondary coach by not giving him the job, how's that looking now?) and it was a mistake to go with an inexperienced OC (especially since Sirianni had also already failed as a more hands-on offensive head coach to begin with).
Now the question is who gets to pick the coordinators or do they just wipe the slate clean rather than risk doing this all over again in a year? And if the latter, would Lurie's Eagles actually hire an experienced NFL head coach for the first time ever or find another project?
