In the wake of yesterday’s nightmare win by the New York Giants, Les Bowen wants to assure you this morning that your life as a Philadelphia Eagles fan truly does suck by pissing your bowl of Spagnuolos.
According to Bowen, while the continued silence by the organization regarding the fate of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo increases the likelihood he’ll be replaced, it’s becoming less likely that Spagnuolo will be the man that replaces him.
Bowen posits that interest in Spagnuolo by teams such as Atlanta and New Orleans would be more attractive options than a team like Philadelphia, given the NFC South powers are good bets to return to the postseason next year. I’ll get to that one in a second.
I also particularly enjoyed his logic with this gem:
“For one thing, going back to a former team as an assistant after flopping as a head coach is less than exciting and new; why not start fresh?”
A few things here–few teams get more exposure than the Philadelphia Eagles–they draw as much national attention as teams like New Orleans and Atlanta. Furthermore, while I’d put New Orleans ahead of the Eagles right now, it’s a stretch to say that Atlanta is more likely to return to the postseason than the Eagles next season. Based on what, exactly? Their two points in North Jersey last Sunday?
So to recap: Bowen wrote a full-length article to report absolutely nothing, based on absolutely nothing. Good stuff.
