So, what does Rich Scangarello do for the Philadelphia Eagles exactly?

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, depending on what your evaluation was of everyone that played quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers from 2017 to 2018, you may have already made your determination of what Rich Scangarello brings to the table for the ‘Birds’. If that didn’t seal it, everything the Denver Broncos did (or didn’t do) on offense in 2019 definitely sealed it.

Scangarello was fired from his role as offensive coordinator by Vic Fangio in January, four days short of his one-year anniversary with the team thanks to an anemic attack that saw Denver finish last in several offensive categories.

Knowing that made much of the Eagles’ fan base question his hire as a senior offensive assistant for two reasons. One, Doug Pederson had elected to go the route of not hiring an offensive coordinator after a ton of speculation concerning who the right guy for the job was. Second, why hire a guy who didn’t light it up in the most recent stop of his coaching journey? Then, there’s also the other thing. Philly added a senior offensive consultant about a month later. This one was a familiar face, Marty Mornhinweg.

Scangarello spoke about the Philadelphia Eagles with the media recently.

Following an early-week practice during the Eagles’ second full week of camp, Rich Scangarello sat down with several members of the Philly media. One of the topics discussed was why he’s here. Take a look at what he had to say:

"I was hired here to help be a part of a staff that is already a veteran group that will work together. (I just want to) incorporate myself to help the offense be the best version it can be in whatever way I can help Doug and the entire group in planning… It’s been pretty seamless. It’s been really good because it’s a veteran group. They’re easy to get along with. They’re detailed. They’re prepared… It’s been a fun thing to be a part of with these guys."

Sure, Doug calls the plays, but after watching an Eagles offense that was, at times, bland, there’s a contingent that would like to see a traditional offensive coordinator on the coaching staff. It doesn’t appear that Coach Pederson is giving up the play-calling duties anytime soon, so for now this is what we have.

The offense is his baby. There are a ton of cooks in the kitchen. That could be a good thing though. Perhaps, Scangarello says it best. ‘I think it’s always fun when someone comes from the outside and gives a fresh perspective on things, and whether you agree or disagree, it’s always good to hear it’. As fans and members of the media, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
