Nothing is official until it's official. How's that for analysis? We hear news all of the time. We trust what we're told when it comes from certain sources, but until (insert player or coach's name) signs the dotted line. They aren't part of the Philadelphia Eagles' organization. We're being long-winded, but we've said all of that to say this. Kellen Moore is Philly's new offensive coordinator... officially.
One day after being treated to Pro Bowl Games that wound up being more entertaining than we originally thought, the Birds officially introduced their guy.
Moore, 35, joins Philly after spending the most recent season as the Los Angeles Chargers' OC. Before that, he held doen the same role with the hated Dallas Cowboys.
Let the good times roll Eagles fans! You have yourselves an offenbsive coordinator!
Nick Sirianni's statement says it all. Moore is accomplished. He has flourished in this role with two other franchises. He has also played the quarterback position at football's highest level.
Though we hate to give the Cowboys credit for anything, they were one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL under Moore's watch. It was also announced that Philadelphia hired a new QB coach, Doug Nussmeier. He has close ties to Coach Moore as well as several other endearing qualities. Most notably, both have called plays before.
This is a big step toward improving an offensive roster that struggled down the stretch and failed to gain any consistent traction for most of the season.
