Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Dick Vermeil was gracious enough to share a few thoughts with Inside the Iggles staff writer, Blaine Grisak. His win/loss record with the Philadelphia Eagles was 54 – 47, win percentage .573. That isn’t exactly something to write home about with one exception.
He led the Eagles to their first of only two trips to the Super Bowl in the Super Bowl era. They lost to the Oakland Raiders 27-10 in Super Bowl XV. He lasted two more seasons with the Eagles before he retired for the first time after an abysmal 3 – 6, strike-shortened season in 1982.
Several years later he led the St. Louis Rams to the Super Bowl in 1999.
Inside the Iggles are grateful Coach Vermeil gave us some insights about the NFL draft and how to find a difference-making player.
