Former Eagles assistants have their work cut out for them as head coaches.

99 times out of 100, when assistant coaches earn their opportunities to be the guy, they're taking over as the leader of a bad team. Otherwise, the job probably wouldn't be available, right?

6. Jonathan Gannon, Arizona Cardinals

Jonathan Gannon's Arizona Cardinals have blown two second-half leads in as many weeks to begin his era in the desert. He should probably be 2-0 right now but hasn't been able to close the deal. To make matters worse, despite the fact that the Cards are a bottom-feeder, they haven't been a patient franchise. We'll see what happens.

7. Shane Steichen, Indianapolis Colts

Shane Steichen knows what he's doing. That's obvious. He has the Indianapolis Colts playing competent football. He lost in his debut but orchestrated Indy's first win on Sunday.

8. Frank Reich, Carolina Panthers

In five seasons as the Colts' head coach, Frank Reich crafted a winning regular-season record (40-33-1), but he only made the playoffs twice in five seasons and turned in a 1-2 record during the postseason.

He's off to an 0-2 start as the Carolina Panthers' leader. It appears there's a ton of work to do if he's going to build a winner. We'll be pulling for him, minus any games where he's playing our Philadelphia Eagles.
