Here are two guys that Philadelphia Eagles fans can add to the whiteboard.
In all honesty, it’s very easy to start a conversation where Marquand Manuel is being discussed and Raheem Morris‘ name comes up (and vice versa). The former is one of those obligatory names that come up when fans and members of the media begin tossing around potential internal promotions. The latter replaced Manuel when he was fired by the Atlanta Falcons after a disappointing 7-9 season in 2018.
Now, what we saw from Manuel the last time he held a DC position in this league would suggest that the theory he doesn’t need another shot at the same role this early is valid. He’s now the defensive backs coach, and the bad play of his unit would also substantiate that. He will be mentioned as a possibility though. Understand that.
The same can be said for Raheem Morris, who has advanced from the Falcons’ role of the assistant head coach and secondary coach to defensive coordinator to Falcons interim head coach in the span of November of 2019 to the present. If he isn’t given the head coach’s chair in the A-T-L, a very real possibility, he could be available. Might Philly be interested? He’s definitely someone that players respond to.
