5 Eagles who have offered almost nothing to this team in 2021
Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon
We know that Ryan Kerrigan has given this team nothing. That’s obvious. He got close to making this list, but any disappointment by any defensive player on this team has to fall at the feet of the defensive coordinator, Jonathan Gannon.
He’s once again among the goats of another loss, and by ‘goat’, we most certainly don’t mean ‘the greatest of all time’. This guy is letting down this team, the city they play in, and Eagles fans all over the country.
Jonathan Gannon looks overmatched and without answers week after week. He’s too conservative. He has no idea how to put his players in the best position to ensure their success, and at this point, talking about his refusal to bring the blitz, his fear of allowing his guys to be aggressive, and the cushion he’s asking his cover guys to give opposing receivers is embarrassing.
Perhaps Tom Kelly of 94 WIP-FM in Philadelphia puts it best.
"No clue what Gannon is thinking at all on this drive. His complete unwillingness to be aggressive even when the situation begs for it is astonishing."
What can you say after that? The man has a point.
