The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to hire a formal OC, whom shall it be?

After an abysmal 4-11-1 season, the Philadelphia Eagles will be parting ways with senior offensive assistants Marty Mornhinweg and Rich Scangarello as their one-year contracts have come to an end. The Eagles experiment of offensive attack by committee fell flat on its face as the team failed to score more than 20 points in eight games, the franchise quarterback regressed his way to the bench, and well, the team managed to win a measly four games.

What this season should have proven to the Eagles is that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing; that too many cooks in the kitchen, prove to result in a distasteful dish. Standing alone, Mornhinweg and Scangarello have had success at the pro level, however, sprinkle in a hint of Press Taylor with a dash of Doug Pederson, and the result was disastrous.

It’s time the Philadelphia Eagles get one authoritative voice at offensive coordinator, and, fortunately, it will be happening this offseason, per Philadelphia Inquirer’s own Jeff McLane.

In an offseason filled with fixing turmoil and tumult, the failure to hire a competent offensive coordinator for the 2021 season would only continue to set this franchise back, making this decision magnanimous. Each season since the 2017 Super Bowl, regression has taken place. It would be far fetched for Philly to take a further step back in 2021, but without the necessary pieces in place in the coach’s office, this team could continue to reside in the NFL’s basement.

There are plenty of former head coaches, collegiate offensive coordinators, and rising talents to be considered for Philadelphia’s OC job, but these five should be at the top of the Eagles list.
