‘Comes Down to the Meeting’

ITB: Meeting with Owner Will Determine Eagles Future


A looming decision at head coach controls the direction of the 2024 Philadelphia Eagles offseason.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher provided intel for the upcoming meeting between Head Coach Nick Sirianni and owner Jeffery Lurie that could lead to massive changes.

Geoff Mosher: “We know that on Friday, Nick Sirianni along with Jeffery Lurie, I believe Julian Lurie will be involved too along with Howie (Roseman), are going to meet altogether. There was a report that they have not had a conversation yet. As we understand it, that is not true. Sirianni has spoken to Jeffery, it just wasn’t in person. We know they have had a discussion, Sirianni and Howie Roseman have had a discussion, but today is the big meeting…It is our understanding that in this meeting it is Sirianni’s responsibility to present a plan to Lurie on how to rectify all the things that went wrong.”

Adam Caplan: “If [Lurie] really wanted to fire [Sirianni], he would have done it on Tuesday. At least going into this, just like he went into the Doug (Pederson) one, this one seems like Jeffery wants to keep him, it doesn’t mean he will. It comes down to this meeting.”

Mosher: “People familiar with the situation know the owner is not happy. This isn’t just a meeting of ‘Alright Nick, what is your plan? Sounds good to me, how can we help you out?’ This is a ‘what is your plan to fix this, I want every single detail.’ Then the owner has to believe the plan is going to work. He has to present a viable plan, and it is not easy just three days removed from the end of your season.”


Mosher: “We know through some sourcing that Nick is scouring the landscape, making calls, looking for people to bring in to be playcallers on both offense and defense. Nick is a CEO head coach.”

Caplan: “The stuff that everybody can see with their eyes: lack of inbreaking routes, the worst screen offense I have seen, they don’t run great concepts.”


Mosher: “The Shanahan/McVay tree, the Eagles have never really tapped from, but I get a sense that this time around that is what they want. They want scheme, somebody who knows how to get people open, function in space, get the ball to a variety of different players, not be predictable.”
