The Eagles, now the owners of a 5-0 record, visit a familiar scene to battle a team that they don't face very often, a team they have never lost to.
Once upon a time, a 'Black Monday' in 2021 led to the firing of several NFL head coaches and their replacement by seven new faces. Just take a look at some of these names: Robert Saleh (New York Jets), Brandon Staley (L.A. Chargers), Urban Meyer (Jacksonville Jaguars), Dan Campbell (Detroit Lions), Arthur Smith (Atlanta Falcons), David Culley (Houston Texans), and Nick Sirianni (Philadelphia Eagles).
What jumps out at you when you look at that list? Times Up! Here's your answer...
Only one of those guys has won a playoff game, and it's the leader of the Birds. Get this. He wasn't the guy that most of the media and fan base wanted. Heck, who are we kidding? Many of us didn't know who he was.
Urban Meyer was fired before the 2021 regular season ended. To tell you the truth, we don't remember much about David Culley's tenure in Houston at all. Robert Saleh is a different story.
Saleh was one of the popular choices of that year's hiring cycle. After all, he had led an impressive defensive unit in San Francisco with the 49ers. He has yet, however, to lead the Jets to the postseason.
He and Nick meet to battle in Week 6. This game is loaded with subplots.
