Eagles News: Texans Seek Second Interview With Jonathan Gannon

Let’s get to Philly Eagles Left …

Houston Texans Coaching News: Texans Follow Second Interview With Jonathan Gannon – Battle Red Blog
However, we do know that current Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was so impressed when he first met Nick Caserio & Co. that the organization sought a second interview. Gannon seems to have left every team he spoke to wanting more. Jonathan Gannon to be Houston Texans’ next head coach? If he’s as hot as the tweets above suggest, would he choose the Texans job over the others he’s being considered for?

Report: Jonathan Gannon deemed ‘front-runner’ for job as Texans head coach – BGN
It’s a bit confusing that just a year after he was hired as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator, Gannon is already piqued by the head coach’s serious interest. The ESPN article referenced above compares Gannon to Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley. But Staley oversaw the league’s top defense in 2020. He had a stronger resume than Gannon, whose defense took out some poor quarterbacks but really struggled against the league’s better passers. It’s possible that Gannon could be a better head coach than defensive coordinator, but one would suspect there are more qualified candidates out there. I mean, why is Gannon held in higher esteem than DeMeco Ryans, for example?

Shamus and Zo discuss the Eagles’ playoff loss in Tampa, the team’s upcoming offseason, potential Sixers trades, and the rest of the NFL playoff list.

GamePlan: Here’s what the 17-game season looks like after a week of playoffs – SI
Three years ago, Philly overhauled its medical staff and hired Dr. Arsh Dhanota of the University of Pennsylvania, who had worked in other professional sports, to lead him as chief medical officer. The team ranked last on most injury metrics in the NFL (e.g., man games lost) and wanted to try and reverse that in order to gain a medical advantage. The result was a three-year plan to streamline the communication between athletic training, strength and conditioning, nutrition and exercise science within the building, combining a mountain of medical data from these areas with subjective feedback from coaches and players. The hope was that by 2022 the Eagles would be in the top 15 in the above metrics. They’ve been comfortably in that range this year. Part of it is always luck. But the Eagles wanted to control what they could by identifying what data was important (e.g. a player’s overall physical strain) and incorporating that into the way a player needed to ramp up each week (they made sure that he got the maximum out of some). during the week to prepare his body for the game), then discharged after the game. From there, they monitored each player week-in-week to keep up with changes, and it worked to the point where Philly’s data showed that players hit top speeds more often in the second half of the season than in the first. because they adapted to the grind without burning out. Another key? This system was bespoke, with each player having a different plan.

Eagles 2022 roster projection: A look at what’s ahead this offseason – The Athletic
As for Jalen Reagor, it’s hard to imagine the Eagles going for a first-round pick after just two seasons, but Reagor doesn’t seem well suited to a bankroll either. His mistakes on special teams are too costly and he doesn’t do the other dirty work required.

Ranking Eagles Position Needs from the 2021 Season – NBCSP
1. Edge rusher. The Eagles inked Josh Sweat, who would have become a free agent this offseason, to a long-term contract during the season. Sweat didn’t have the breakout, double-digit sack season that some had predicted, but he did play well and show up strong. After him, however, the Eagles need more help at this position. Brandon Graham will return for the 2022 season but he is 34 and recovering from an Achilles injury. In the meantime, Derek Barnett will be hitting the open market as a free agent, and it’s probably time to break away from him. Tarron Jackson has proven he can be part of the rotation, but the Eagles need more here. As well as being an obvious necessity, this is an extremely important position and the Eagles see it as such. This is a good year to use a high-draft pick on the defensive end, and there might be a few good ones within their reach in the first round.

“Regression to the mean” predicts bad things for the Cowboys in 2022 – Blogging The Boys
A big part of last year’s 12 wins was them defeating the NFC East, which as mentioned was still pretty dismal even though the Philadelphia Eagles also made the playoffs. There’s a long-overdue step backwards, in this case to a more average division, which would be a real improvement. The Eagles have three first-round picks and the Giants have two, so they could be better. The Cowboys currently have just seven picks overall, with a lot of gaps to be filled due to the large number of free agents pending. They’ll need to do some cap manipulation to get under the offseason limit, which will see Stephen Jones spend even more time in the free agent bargain box this year. That’s another reason why things could slide backwards for the team. Will McClay has been doing very well lately but even there the strong results could be another point where things could start to get more average.

A quick look at Amari Cooper’s contract – Over The Cap
It just seems like a possibility Dallas always had in mind. Cooper has a $22 million salary cap and only $6 million in dead money if they cut him (this assumes he’s sane). While still prolific, Cooper is coming off a year where he failed to rush for 900 yards and appeared to be coping with nagging injuries all season. With all the other factors here, it’s likely enough for a drop that they would at least discuss options with his contract ranging from a pay cut to seeing what trade market there might be to leaving it as is. This is not the same situation as Dez Bryant as that name may come up when people think of Dallas options. Bryant’s numbers had been down for a couple of years and he was older than Cooper when Dallas decided they were paying money to a player who wasn’t No. 1. Cooper may still be an 1, Dallas just has to decide if they want to spend the full $20 million to find out in 2022.

Giants fans, NFL insiders and analysts are overwhelmingly in favor of hiring Joe Schoen – Big Blue View
New York Giants fans appear to be overwhelmingly pleased with the selection of Joe Schoen as general manager. So far, 78 percent of respondents in our consent poll have voted for the election. The reaction from analysts and NFL insiders is just as positive. Football Outsiders’ Mike Tanier mentioned Schoen’s connection to legendary Giants coach Bill Parcells. Parcells brought Schön to the Miami Dolphins while he was there in 2008. “Schoen comes with ringing endorsements, including the only one that really matters to Giants management: the Parcells seal of approval. The Bills ran a tight ship under Beane-McDermott, so there are no yellow flags there. Most young GM candidates have almost identical resumes, so it’s difficult to get too high or too low on any of them. At least the Giants no longer pretend they’re going in the “right” direction. That is progress in itself.”

Report: Two favorites for Vikings GM job emerge – Daily Norseman
Whoever the Vikings choose to head their front office, the hiring could directly impact the hiring of the tenth head coach in franchise history. The Poles’ hiring could result in Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy getting at least one interview with the team. . .his name hasn’t been among those asked for an interview by the team. Adofo-Mensah crossed paths with San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans during his time in the Bay Area. Of course, they could both be interested in other candidates as well, but these are some of the immediate connections they both have.

Ravens announce they have parted ways with Baltimore Beatdown defense coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale
This comes as a bit of a surprise as most expected the Ravens to bring Martindale back with a fully serviced defense that didn’t have the majority of their duty defenders on injured reserve. During the 2021 season, the Ravens’ defense ranked first against run, allowing 84.5 yards per game. However, they were the NFL’s worst defense against the pass, allowing an average of 278 yards per game. They were also No. 19 in points allowed, averaging 23.1 points allowed per game.

The Texans are slowly getting closer to hiring Josh McCown as their head coach…seriously – SB Nation
For the second year in a row, the Texans are interviewing Josh McCown. Their former quarterback, with no head coaching experience at any level, appears to be getting a chance because management likes him. That’s not to blame McCown, people seem to like the guy in general, and he’s never had trouble with teammates at any point in his 18-year NFL career that spanned 12 different teams. There have been instances where teams have hired unqualified coaches forever, but nothing has been so pronounced. Texans seem hell-bent on throwing a dart at a dartboard to find a coach, rather than using any sort of logic. Remember: This is a team that interviewed another former player, Hines Ward, whose only coaching experience was a year as a wide receivers coach at Florida Atlantic.
