Eagles News: Philadelphia losing both coordinators is ‘overblown’

Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles left…

Five NFL offseason storylines that are overblown; three that deserve more attention – NFL.com
OVERBLOWN: 3) Eagles lose both coordinators. Super Bowl losers tend to draw suspicious eyes each year, with talk of curses haunting teams that don’t win the previous season’s big game. After all, it was a real trend for many years. But there are recent counterexamples to Super Bowl losers doing well the year after, so this shouldn’t be a question we reflexively don’t weigh in on every offseason. Take this year’s Eagles. On paper, they could be even better than a year ago, keeping the bulk of the roster intact, adding four quality draft picks in the top 66 overall and having most of their stars in the top tier. Losing both coordinators, Shane Steichen (Colts) and Jonathan Gannon (Cardinals), cannot be overlooked. But that can be exaggerated, and I think that’s what’s happening here. Steichen helped Jalen Hurts develop, but QB coach-turned-coordinator Brian Johnson should step into that role seamlessly and could be a head coaching candidate himself one day. Plus, let’s not forget that head coach Nick Sirianni is also a pretty gifted offensive mind, and this offense is still his baby. I also won’t be shocked at all if the defense doesn’t miss a beat after Gannon’s departure. The group could be just as good, or maybe even better, under new coordinator Sean Desai, especially with first-round picks Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith joining the lineup. If losing both coordinators is the Eagles’ biggest concern now, these should be considered first-world problems for an NFL team to have.

Quarterback vs. quarterback look at Eagles’ 2023 program – BGN
Of the Eagles’ 14 opponents the Eagles faced last season, 10 had a better quarterback rating than Hurts. This year, it’s a reversed script, with Hurts having a better QB rating than 11 of the 14 on a list that includes Mahomes, Buffalo’s Josh Allen, Seattle’s Geno Smith, New York Jets’ Aaron Rodgers, Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins, Los Angeles . Angeles Rams’ Matt Stafford and Dallas’ Dak Prescott. It’s a tougher schedule. Evil must be a year better – if possible. Here’s a look at who the Eagles will face in 2023 and a brief overview of who the better quarterback will be.

Where are they now? QB Johnny Walton – PE.com
A four-year starter at Elizabeth City (NC) State University, former Eagles quarterback Johnnie Walton was inducted into the Black College Football Hall of Fame on June 10, along with seven others, including former Eagles assistant coach Leslie Frazier. “Well, that’s the top of the line for me. I didn’t expect it, for one thing. But then it happened. And the way it was done, it was well presented. A drum roll and all,” laughed Walton. And the people there, the crowd, were nice. We had 400 to 500 at the banquet. “I was among some guys who had similar paths to success. It spoke to the college days, and for me, if I hadn’t gone to college, I probably wouldn’t have been as successful as I am.” Walton’s gridiron road began in college, where he passed for 1,400 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior in 1968. Named to the All-Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association team, he led the school to an 8-1 record. Walton joins seven others who played for the Eagles – Harold Carmichael, Richard Dent, Hugh Douglas, Jimmie Giles, Claude Humphrey, Harold Jackson and Roynell Young – as well as former Philadelphia personnel director Jackie Graves, former defensive coordinator Emmitt Thomas, and Frazier in the BCFHOF.

“It’s going well. Balancing both is hard, but I’m having a lot of fun as long as I can stay healthy,” Allen said after the race on the NBC broadcast. “Get to compete against these guys in high-quality competition . 13.01 and 13.04 are nothing to scoff at.” The race was run with a legal tailwind of 1.6 meters per hour. The 28-year-old Allen spent last year on the Eagles’ practice squad and remains on the 90-man roster with training camp about five weeks away. He had not played organized football since the 2016 season at Oregon.

Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Lawrence: ‘I don’t feel like it’s a big gap at all’ when discussing Eagles – Blogging The Boys
The Eagles clearly have talent and a QB they rewarded with a massive contract, so they should definitely be respected. However, there is something to be said for a Super Bowl hangover plaguing teams the following year in addition to the loss of some key contributors in free agency like safety CJ Gardner-Johnson, DT Javon Hargraves and two LBs in TJ Edwards and Kyzir Hvid . Only time will tell if what DeMarcus Lawrence said is true, but as we sit here in June, the statement is not far-fetched as it may be perceived by the other fanbase involved.

One thing to note about all of these metrics is that Jalen Hurts ranks in the top 10 in each of them. Whatever questions there may be about how he would fare on a less talented team, Hurts’ production in 2022 was excellent in every way … including the fact that he might have had a ring if his defense had held up in the last two minutes. And he has improved in nearly every significant category during his three years in the NFL. The same goes for Tua Tagovailoa.

Two years later, in 1942, Washington had a chance for revenge when the Bears again traveled to Griffith Stadium, but this time the home team prevailed and won their second championship in 6 years by beating Chicago 14-6.
