We’re discussing potential Philadelphia Eagles replacements for Schwartz.

Talk about turmoil and off-field distractions. The Philadelphia Eagles, just in case you had forgotten, still had one more game to play after they lost to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16 of the 2020 NFL season, but very few people were talking about it.

Instead, they were talking about how bad they wished that Howie Roseman would be fired, whether or not Doug Pederson would be dismissed, and whether or not Carson Wentz would be back to participate in a battle for the job of Philly’s starting quarterback in 2021.

For all intents and purposes, some have already moved on mentally, and they can’t fathom any idea that says Carson Wentz will ever be the starting signal-caller again, but if he is, who would be his coach. Would it be Doug? Then, there’s special teams coordinator Dave Fipp. What does this organization do with him?

Well, the shoe dropped in Philly on the second day of 2021, and here it is. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz won’t be back next season, but if you’re a Birds fan, you ready know that. The question is who’s going to be the replacement?

Well, no one knows. Again, at the time of this story being published, there’s still a game to play in Week 17. Schwartz will man the sideline for that one. Once he’s done, his run as DC is over, and here are six names that belong to potential replacements.
