What no Ben McDaniels? I didn't think he'd survive the change for obvious reasons but I wonder what a change now does to the progress track Tebow is on. At least we'll have the same OC so it won't be a new system to learn just maybe a different approach to it.

Sean McDermott,former eagles DC,was mentioned on NFL network as the favorite to be our next DC, went as far as to say he is already in contract negotiations. I'm not impressed.
http://www.chicagobreakingsports.com/2011/01/report-eagles-fire-defensive-coordinator.html


Less than a week after Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that defensive coordinator Sean McDermott would return in 2011, the Eagles have fired McDermott, according to sources.

McDermott, 36, came under heavy criticism in a season in which the Eagles allowed a franchise-high 31 touchdown passes and had the worst red-zone defense in the NFL

Hamrob
01-16-2011, 08:11 AM
Interesting about McDermott...I was reading the comments on Fox in regards to their article about the firing...and most of the people posting about the article...said it was a bad firing. They said that McDermott was used as a scapegoat. Evidently, the injuries were the real issue there. Looks like the Browns are also trying to hire McDermott...but, he is believed to be signing with the Broncos.

From what I can recall...McDermott is/was held in high regard around the NFL as one of the up and coming talents.

I'm o.k. with this.

What about the scouting department? We really need to get new scouts because if you look at our drafts for the past 10 years it hasn't been impressive at all! I hate it when I see teams like Green Bay, New Orleans, and New England have starters and impact players that they pick up in the later rounds and undrafted free agents!

They are retain all the current scouts and personnel dept. We will see if that is a wise move. But the problem hasn't been the scouts, it the lack of stable defense and offense systems, it is hard to find talent when you keep changing systems.

I don't have a problem with McDermmott. He's been with the Eagles for a long time and has coached almost every position on defense. The Eagles defense had the great Johnson so hopefully he leaned A LOT. Since he took over as DC the D overall has been average BUT tops in T/G. Especially since Ryan is no longer available.

Just replace Shanahan with Reid on this article.

http://www.philly.com/inquirer/sports/20110116_Inside_the_Eagles___Reid_failed_to_give_M cDermott_the_players_to_build_a_top_defense.html

There's a name for it now - "The Andy Reid Reversal."

On Monday, Sean McDermott was coming back as defensive coordinator, the Eagles' head coach said. Three days later, he sat down with McDermott and cut him loose.

Still, Reid's Monday praise of McDermott shouldn't have come as a surprise. For one, he isn't accustomed to immediately shoving his assistants or players into oncoming traffic - unless, of course, they're David Akers.

But Reid's faux support of McDermott more likely had something to do with the big picture.

The much bigger picture.

If Reid were to have slammed the 36-year-old on Monday after the Eagles' playoff loss to Green Bay, then he would have been indicting himself for not giving McDermott the necessary tools to build a dominating defense.

As reasonable as it is to question McDermott and his scheme, a fair assessment would have to include an evaluation of personnel. And injuries aside, the workers were average, at best.

Was it McDermott's fault that the Eagles did almost nothing to replace Sheldon Brown at right cornerback? Was it his fault that top draft picks - defensive end Brandon Graham and safety Nate Allen - suffered season-ending injuries in early December?

McDermott would be a great choice. His stats aren't great in two years as the Eagles DC, but they have had a ton of injuries on that side of the ball. Plus, he's only 36, so he's probably learned a thing a two from the experience. I love his aggressive style. Lots of turnovers.

From what I'm reading, McDermott is like 98% certain to be our DC, which I like, but it also sends strong signals that we're going to become a 4-3 team again.

Bottomline its simply easier to buiild and maintain a solid 4-3 team than a 3-4... Its not easy finding the bigger bodies 'that can really play' at DL and LB a 3-4 needs.

Simply more options for rapid improvement with a 4-3 system, though we have invested a good deal in 3-4 over the last two years.

But when you look at it, mostly its Jamal that is a dedicated 3-4 guy. Everyone else is pretty much interchangable between the two systems and going back to 4-3 is a hell of a lot easier than the initial switch to 3-4.

In any event, hope we land McDermott. The eagles had a real talent drain on D both from not reloading well and key injuries and we all know how much that can color and effect the performance of a defense.

We have at least 5 .. maybe 6 ... spots needing an upgrade on D which no doubt will be a big part of the FA/draft focus. I dont think Wink is a bad DC either, he was as much a victim of bad luck with injuries and not having all the tools he needed as McDermott was.

Anyway, 'McD'(ermott) on D sounds about right ;)

I think this would be a great hire for the Broncos, our coaching staff is starting to come together with some big time names and more importantly big time talent.

IIRC, McDermott was a candidate for DC here (vs Nolan) when McDaniels took over. McDermott stayed in Philly as he was virtually guaranteed the opportunity to succeed his mentor, Jim johnson.

If he does a good job here, he will be getting head coach consideration fairly quickly, IMO.

They were 12th in yardage, and 21st in scoring defense. Despite that, I think he'd be a good fit here. Let him and Fox blend the Jimmy Johnson and John Fox style defenses for the Broncos. It would almost insure that we move to a 4-3 front, which this team is better suited for right now anyway.

I assume by the better players you mean DJ, Ayers and Doom. In a 4-3, Ayers and Doom would be the starting ends, and DJ would more than likely go back to his WLB spot where he had the most success. The 4-3 allows you to cover Doom's weakness against the run better, and it gets all 3 guys on the field at the same time. I don't know that anyone else in our current front 7 that is under contract is really worth working around, do you?

doom has shown what he can do at LB, which while he may be more exposed in the run game he is far more effective at pass rushing. ayers is a question mark at both positions at this point.

i dont think at this point it makes a huge difference, the bigger thing now would be picking a scheme and sticking to it. but this team isnt more ready for a 4-3 now than it is a 3-4, we will lose guys like jamal williams and mays may be limited in a 4-3.

Earlier I was reading that something like 15 out of Doom's 17 sacks last year were from being in a 3 point stance. I don't think in Doom's case it matters which defense we're in. He has shown he can rush the quarterback in both

Just fyi, I was listening to Philly sports talk radio today. It was mentioned that reportedly some players were complaining about how they were being used, most notably Trent Cole who didn't like that he was being dropped into coverage more than he liked as opposed to rushing the passer.

That being said, I agree that McDermott was something of a scapegoat. They had a lot of injuries, particularly to DB's, and overall they need more talent on that defense.

Every Jim Johnson protoge has gone on to great things. I think the kid will too one day.

The limited personnel on defense was hit by injuries, to the point where Asante was all that I had left, so let's fire the defensive coordinator.

The front office not-with-standing its "gold standard"

propaganda drive supplements my poor defensive drafts by splurging on
Ernie Sims! So let's fire the DC.

The offense was dismal at critical junctures, too; the offense arguably came up shorter than the defense when the team needed it the most against the Redskins,Chicago,Minnesota and Green Bay .

Sean was Reid's redheaded step-child or redheaded scapegoat.

Earlier I was reading that something like 15 out of Doom's 17 sacks last year were from being in a 3 point stance. I don't think in Doom's case it matters which defense we're in. He has shown he can rush the quarterback in both

And we might pose the question - what happens to Doom's production if you put him next to a disruptive DT like Fairley?

also, what happens with Ayers if he finally gets to line up at the position he is best suited for. sure he was making strides at playing OLB in the 3-4 but i think he can truly flourish as a playmaker as a DE in the 4-3. it would be great to bookend him and Doom.

There is nothing wrong with saying nothing if you really don't have any clue what the coach will do.

...when Johnson's cancer was diagnosed in January 2009, McDermott was the natural successor for a head coach that likes to promote from within.

In July 2009, just days before Johnson died, McDermott was named his successor. He adopted his predecessor's aggressive, blitzing style, but his approach was different in many other ways. McDermott liked to tinker with his defense and substitute players in and out during a game.

A few defensive players privately complained about their roles in the young coordinator's scheme. McDermott, though, dealt with a number of significant injuries - six starters were lost at various points during this season - and a young cast of players.

But the defense got progressively worse as each of the last two seasons wore down. Against the Vikings, the unit struggled against third-string quarterback Joe Webb, who was making his first career start. In the season-ending loss to the Packers, running back James Starks, in just his fifth NFL game, gutted the Eagles for 123 rushing yards.

Breakout season. Magazu is the best OL coach we've had since Gibbs and its highly likely we see some S&T staff turnover who can help solve Moreno's hamstring issues. Coupled with an offensive scheme more conducive to running the football and an appreciation for tandem back work (what suits Moreno best) he'll be poised for a Tiki Barber in '02 type of break out season.

They do all the grunt work, which typically consists of a ton of watching tape, self scouting, etc.. Its the entry level coaching job before you work your way up to positional coach. Very similar to what a "defensive assistant" or "offensive assistant" was used as with McDaniels.

Shanahan never really had a bad OC when he was here because that's what he was good at and knew when to step and who to hire (granted he called the plays), I'm sure fox is similar in that whoever he picks is a guy that runs his style of d and if fox needs to step in and fix it he will. Like the previous poster said, it was more important that we got a good oc since we have a defensive HC

Mike Trgovac. And I'd rather have a small-name defensive coordinator than the small-minded, huge butt hole that is Jim Mora.

well said sir.

Do you know what the term "pencil in" means? The word pencil is used specifically because pencil can be erased. The phrase was actually used almost perfectly in this case because the scenario appeared very likely.

Nunnely remains the DL coach. Our new DC will fill the last two coaching positions (LB + DB) to suit his/Fox's system.

So...what was the deal with interviewing Trgovac? Are they going to bring him in now?

We can't interview him until after the SB because it's not for a HC position.

Any news? I couldn't find much other than the below info on the Eagles DC search, some of which may be relevant to the Broncos.


...if the Eagles were hoping interview coaches from either the Packers or the Steelers - slated to meet each other in Super Bowl XLV - they will have to wait until Feb. 7 to do so.

They did finally get around to interviewing one candidate. Saints assistant Dennis Allen met with Eagles coach Andy Reid and general manager Howie Roseman for a formal interview at the NovaCare Complex on Sunday. The 38-year-old defensive backs coach flew back to New Orleans later in the day, a team spokesman said.

It is unclear exactly what transpired, but he was not hired, as expected - at least not yet. Allen also interviewed with the Broncos for their defensive coordinator position opening on Friday.

The Eagles still have a number of candidates they have yet to interview. Those names are still unknown, though.

The search could become clearer on Monday as the Eagles are now free to talk with coaches on the Bears' and Jets' staffs with expiring contracts or request permission to talk with coaches signed through at least next season.

Bob Babich, Chicago's linebackers coach and before that their defensive coordinator, could be on the Eagles' radar. Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is a popular choice among Eagles fans, but he is under contract and has said he isn't going anywhere.

More than likely, the Eagles are waiting for at least one assistant on one of the Super Bowl-bound teams. Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac seems to be a perfect fit for the Eagles - he ran a 4-3 defense as the Panthers' coordinator and once coached in Philadelphia. But he has said that he isn't even sure if he wants to go back to being a coordinator.

Green Bay assistant head coach/inside linebackers coach Winston Moss is also another possible candidate, as is outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene. The Steelers' Dick LeBeau is one of the game's best coordinators, but the 73-year-old's contract is up after this season.

He doesn't sound likely to leave Pittsburgh, at least not for the Eagles.

"If I'm in the state of Pennsylvania, I'm going to be in Pittsburgh," LeBeau said after the Steelers' win.

Roseman and possibly Reid are expected to attend Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala., on Monday. There will be a host of potential coordinator candidates in attendance.

I was going to start a thread about this, but I didn't want to disrupt the flow of Cutler threads.

I'm sort of hoping that not being allowed to talk to Trgovac for a couple more weeks will make them want to hire Allen. For some reason I have a good feeling about him.

Although, bringing in Trgovac could give us the inside track on landing Cullen Jenkins in FA.

I think our D would kill Dick LeBeau. He might die just from looking at the film from last years D.

Mike Trogvac seems like a guy that would be around here for awhile from what I've read. Only 50 years old, yet he doesn't appear to be seeking a head coaching job. That's exactly the kind of coach the broncos should be looking for.
