The Eagles’ Next Steps: What Comes Next?

Published on


One story that caught my attention was about a man in India who was declared dead, but woke up when the ambulance transporting him hit a pothole. It made me think of the Eagles’ season and how we can’t quite determine if it’s truly over.

Is the head coach safe? The Eagles’ ownership and front office have a history of making quick decisions, as seen when Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson were both fired after disappointing seasons. Owner Jeffrey Lurie, who is 72 years old, is determined to secure another Super Bowl ring. With the team’s potential and Lurie’s expectations, the pressure is on for head coach Nick Sirianni to prove himself and regain the team’s confidence after a rough end to the season. The stakes are high, and it won’t be the first time a coach has lost their job over underperforming.

Is the offensive coordinator safe? The Eagles’ offense has struggled, scoring only 14 touchdowns in their last 7 games. Firing offensive coordinator Brian Johnson would add to Jalen Hurts’ instability with his third play caller in as many years. However, Johnson’s limited playbook and relationship with the franchise QB may not be enough to save his job. The lack of outside perspectives in the coaching staff adds to the uncertainty of the offensive coordinator’s future.

After the 2023 finish, there are 8 burning questions about the Eagles that need answers.

Is the defensive coordinator definitely gone? The defensive staff is in dire need of a shakeup, and the departure of defensive coordinator Matt Patricia seems inevitable. While some may argue that Patricia was put in a tough position taking over mid-season, the issues with the defense cannot be overlooked. It’s clear that changes need to be made, and Patricia’s position on the team is questionable.

What players are gone? Several key players for the Eagles are entering uncertain contract situations, with Haason Reddick, James Bradberry, Darius Slay, AJ Brown, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and D’Andre Swift not under contract for next year. The team faces difficult decisions regarding these players and their future with the team.

The end of the Eagles’ season was disappointing, and the upcoming offseason is daunting. The team faces numerous challenges as they evaluate their coaching staff and players. Hopefully, they can find a way to overcome these obstacles and turn things around.
