Might the Philadelphia Eagles consider another Andy Reid understudy?

Remember that old saying ‘those who can’t teach’? It’s guys like Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy that make you want to crumple up any piece of paper with those words written on it and work on your jump shot with the nearest trash receptacle.

Bieniemy was taken in the second round of 1991’s NFL Draft, 39th-overall. As a player, over the course of his nine-year NFL career, he racked up 1589 career rushing yards on 387 carries, another 1,223 yards on 146 receptions, and he reached the end zone 11 times. He actually finished his playing career as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999. How’s that for a trivia question?

Bieniemy decided his football life wasn’t over as his coaching career began in the collegiate ranks with Colorado (2001–2002) and UCLA (2003–2005). His NFL career has spanned well over 15 seasons. It’s his time. The fact that he isn’t an NFL head coach right now is embarrassing, but by the time the dust clears and the smoke settles, he’ll again be the hot topic once the 2021 offseason rolls around. If you have a list of potential head coaches and his name isn’t at the top of it, your list needs to be re-written or thrown out entirely.
