3. There’s no reason the Philadelphia Eagles shouldn’t soar with three great offensive minds.
The Philadelphia Eagles elected to go the route of not hiring an offensive coordinator for the 2020 season, and somehow that still seems like an upgrade from the man who held down that role for two seasons, Mike Groh, who, in the offseason, realigned himself with former Eagles offensive coordinator and current Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich.
The Eagles have elected to go the route of having head coach Doug Pederson maintain the role of calling the offense’s plays while senior offensive consultants Marty Mornhinweg and senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello help with the offensive gameplan.
That could be just what the doctor ordered for an offense that has, at times, been described as unimaginative and basic. Tell the truth. At the beginning of 2019, you knew the Eagles were running the ball every time Jordan Howard was in the backfield and throwing it every time Miles Sanders was back there. Well, didn’t you?
Throw in quarterback coach Press Taylor and newly-hired wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead to the mix, and the Philadelphia Eagles might have the best set of offensive coaches that they’ve had during the Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz era.
If the Philadelphia Eagles don’t soar with all of these offensive minds, something’s truly wrong, but there’s no reason not to think positively. We may be on the verge of seeing Wentz light up scoreboards a la 2017.
