Jeff Stoutland curses out Howie Roseman following recent interview
Few employees in the Philadelphia Eagles organization can get away with instigating a profanity-laden verbal assault on vice president/general manager Howie Roseman and continue enjoying employment. If we had to make guesses on a few guys that could, we’d have to say Jeff Stoutland would be one of them.
Scratch that. It appears he already has.
In what wound up being a treat. Jason Kelce, his younger brother Travis, and Wave Sports + Entertainment finally dropped Jason’s interview with Howie at the most recent NFL Scouting Combine by way of the most recent podcast. This one was an excellent watch.
One of the highlights was a funny story Howie told about a call he received from the Eagles’ offensive line coach. Here’s what Stout thinks about Howie’s recent appearance on the podcast during the combine.
What can we say? Offensive line coaches are built differently. Stout isn’t your typical O-line coach though. We’re talking about a guy that grabbed an Australian rugby star that never played American football, one that didn’t know how to put his helmet on, and transformed him into an all-start-level talent at one of the most important positions along the offensive front.
Ladies and gents, Jeff Stoutland is a freaking genius.
Jeff Stoutland may end his coaching career as the king of Philadelphia.
Chip Kelly didn’t give the Philadelphia Eagles much, but he hit a home run with Jeff Stoutland. Hired as Philly’s O-line coach on February 7th of 2013, the professor of ‘Stoutland University’ has survived TWO coaching changes, and if for whatever reason, the Nick Sirianni era ends with Philly’s current head coach and the organization parting ways, we’d bet money that he’d survive a third.
He’s worked for Chip, Doug Pederson, and Nick Sirianni. Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson have been there the entire time. Some of the faces have changed around them, but year after year, the Birds field one of the NFL’s best offensive lines.. if not the best. Heading into the 2023-2024 season, they’re expected to do so again. As long as Stout is around, we believe they will.
Long ago, we threw titles on the Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z like ‘G.O.A.T. and ‘King of New York’. Once Jeff Stoutland determines he no longer wants to coach, he might wind up being the King of Philly. He’s already the G.O.A.T.
Stout won’t have to pay for a beer in Philadelphia for as long as he’s in the city. We’re a long way from that type of discussion. Right now, we just don’t want that coaching tenure to end.
