This is not big news and we tend to blow off what Howard Eskin says because he’s not a real journalist, but we feel compelled to report anything about whom the Eagles might name as a coach.
Speaking on 94WIP with Joe Giglio, Eskin said:
“I hear it is most likely going to come down to Josh McDaniels or Duce Staley.
“The reason that I believe that is what I hear is Howie (Roseman) really likes Josh McDaniels…Jeffrey Lurie not quite at that point and the interview with Duce Staley, from what I was told, really went well.
“Jeffrey Lurie has also received quite a few text messages from players who are in support of Duce Staley. How much that means, I don’t know, but that will obviously have some input.
“In Duce’s interview he was very through, had some good ideas for coaches, especially offensive and defensive coordinators, both from the pros and from college. He has got guys from what I understand he has talked to if he gets the job. He is prepared. From what I understand that has impressed Jeffrey Lurie.”
