Eagles part with OC Mike Groh

Recommended Posts

 

This was needed badly. They were horrible. Everyone needs a fresh start and that offense needs someone who can help Wentz and those WRs grow.

Eagles fans will rejoice. They did not like their OC/DC this year.

Didn't they say just yesterday that both of them were staying? Lol

Either way it is fine. Doug is really the guy that stirs the offense, but getting a different mind in there to help bring it back closer to the 2017 couldn't hurt

Lurie used executive override.

Pretty sure Groh was the guy behind the scripting opening 15 plays etc. And if you look at Carson's performance in those opening 15 plays vs after it. Over the last two years since Groh took over. It was damning.

Doug didn’t have his meeting with Lurie before the comments. Lurie must have put his hammer on the table. Reported Lurie was done with Groh in December. Lurie with the aggressiveness, woa.

Too bad Groh couldn't stay as a WR coach.. but that would be unnecessary drama

Doug just released a statement back tracking that whole thing....Yeesh. It’s not a huge deal but a bad look for sure. Maybe next time have the meeting before the press conference

That's definitely not great. Pederson and Howie are great at their jobs, but they need to get these assistant positions sorted out and they need to get on the same page about it.

Wait, your owner? 

He stepped in and fired people from your HC's staff. 

That seems awfully.... meddlesome

Its hard to do with a owner so blatantly undermining his coaches and front office.

Yeah, but in this case he did it for the greater good. Doug was being overly loyal and Jeffery Lurie wasn't having the sentimentality get in the way of doing what is objectively right.

Spoken by a man with true experience in the matter watching Jerruh all these years
