ITB: What New Coaches Bring to the Eagles


The Philadelphia Eagles are already in the midst of a busy offseason as they look to get back on track after the 2023 season-ending collapse.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Geoff Mosher and InsideTheBirds.com’s Andrew DiCecco discuss recent developments surrounding the team.

Geoff Mosher: “I could be wrong, but I don’t think it is going to be an NFC East game. If you look at their five other home opponents, you are not finding a whole lot of layups: Browns, Steelers, Packers, Jaguars, Falcons. I don’t know if they want to open the season with Eagles versus Falcons. I think Eagles vs. Packers is the game.”

Andrew DiCecco: “Christian Parker is probably going to have an elevated role. He had a couple of defensive coordinator looks in the offseason. He has a nice pedigree of developing corners in Denver, a lot of their young players have taken a big step forward under his tutelage. Joe Kasper, as one source explained to me, is a smart coach who will explain his assignments in great detail.”

Mosher: “What jumps out to me about this staff that Vic Fangio is putting together is that you are not worried about the messaging; they have all coached under Fangio, they all know what he wants to do. You are not worried about inexperience, each of them have already led the room.”

Kellen Moore

DiCecco: “You are going to see a lot more 11 personnel and quarterback under center. The third receiver is going to be a lot more of a focal point than it has been in the past, he is going to use the short-to-intermediate levels of the field in the passing game. There is a misconception that Kellen Moore is adverse to running the football, but three years in Dallas he had a 1,000 yard rusher.”

Tyler Guyton

DiCecco: “The Eagles are a team that always looks ahead. When you see Lane Johnson at 34-years-old and a lot of quality tackles at that backend of the first round of the draft, the value is going to be too much to pass up. You get him to learn behind Lane for one and two years and then you are able to step right in there and the Eagles won’t miss a beat.”

Mosher: “The Eagles draft offensive and defensive linemen early…between now and the end of free agency, Howie Roseman will likely continue his pattern of trying to shore up immediate holes with free agents and trades so that he can draft for the future which is what teams are supposed to do.”
