Here are a few questions if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan. 

There’s no need for a show of hands. There’s no real need to answer this one out loud or anything. Just think about this for a second, especially if you self-identify as a Philadelphia Eagles enthusiast.

Are the Birds giving you a headache? Did you find it difficult to pay attention to the games sometimes (especially in Week 17 when Nate Sudfeld stepped in)? Are you paying less attention to what they’ve done in the current offseason than, say, what they’ve done in years past?

If any of that (or all of that is correct), don’t feel as though you need to turn in your die-hard fan badge. The Birds are a tough watch and discussion these days, so much so that we haven’t discussed much concerning the coaching staff other than the fact that we were told Nick Sirianni was a great communicator (and he doesn’t seem to be at times) and the fact that, as soon as they announced Sirianni’s lineup of assistants, one of them, Jay Valai, left the Birds after 11 days to join the Alabama Crimson Tide.

That decision was made after he left the University of Houston after a 12-day stint to join Philly. How’s that for job-hopping?

Still, even with that being said, the Philadelphia Eagles’ first staff under the new head coach has some interesting characters on it. Look no further than Jemal Singleton. He’s one of those guys that are just fun to talk about.
