Five Philadelphia Eagles coaches aren’t on any hot seat yet, but the day is near.

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, one of the realistic ones at least, sitting in the first place position of the NFL’s Eastern Division isn’t good enough. Having to rally to beat the New York Giants isn’t good enough. Being 3-4-1 after eight games isn’t good enough.

Finger-pointing is easy. There are so many people that you can blame for so many things. Carson Wentz is an easy target. So is Doug Pederson. Most of us can complain about Howie Roseman all day. We can blame bad draft picks or underachieving players who are overpaid. We can blame injuries. The facts are the facts though.

At some point, you have to blame the coaching. Why can’t Davion Taylor and Quez Watkins get on the field? Don’t give us that crap about some of these guys being late-round draft picks and there not being much of an expectation for their success. Players play the game. It’s a coach’s job to get them ready. More often than not, that isn’t happening in Philly.

Let’s not waste a ton of time here. The Birds’ coaching staff has left much to be desired in 2020 (and some would say that’s been the case for a while now). Here are five assistants that should, at a minimum, be on a very warm seat. It’s time for these guys to sweat a little.
