Might these Philadelphia Eagles assistants be deserving of the most blame?

Aaron Moorehead – Wide Receivers Coach

We’ve heard too many positives about Aaron Moorhead to believe that he’s a bad coach, but you can’t argue with results. Sure guys have been injured, but Jalen Reagor was just okay before he got hurt, Quez Watkins was hurt but didn’t give the Eagles anything in Week 5 in his debut, and DeSean Jackson looked like he had taken a huge step backward in the short time that he’s been on the field.

That’s not all. John Hightower looks like he’s anything but prepared for any game that he’s in. Sure, Travis Fulgham has been a nice surprise, but in all honesty, that may be more about Fulgham’s desire than anything that Moorehead is doing. Grade: D

Andrew Breiner – Pass Game Analyst

Take everything that has been said about Scangarello and Mornhinweg, change the work resume to reflect what Andrew Breiner has done (he was most recently Mississippi State’s quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator), and you can ask the same question about Breiner that was asked about Scangarello and Mornhinweg.

What exactly does this guy do? Maybe if the Eagles hired a real offensive coordinator, this team would be in business. Right now, they look like a foundering restaurant with too many cooks in the kitchen. Grade: D

Press Taylor – Passing Game Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach

Let’s be honest. Press Taylor has his job because he’s Carson Wentz’s buddy. He isn’t good at his job. He isn’t talented. He isn’t going to get better at it.

If you’re wondering what the biggest reason is for Carson Wentz’s regression, look no further than the fact that Frank Reich and John DeFilippo are gone and Press Taylor hasn’t been fired yet. Grade: F

Ley’s make long stories short. Based on results, Philly’s new coaching changes are collectively a comedy of errors and, so far, a list of nine bad decisions.
