Philadelphia Eagles interviewing Washington Football Team DB coach Chris Harris for DC job
"Naturally After After the Eagles made the higher Of Nick Syriani. Started wanting yourself. I will. What's the staff going to be? You know, looking like here? I wonder who's gonna hire Willie Go with a veteran coordinator on the offensive side. What happens on the defensive side, etcetera, so In Rapoport rap sheet at rap sheet from the NFL network. Tweeted out about nine minutes ago that the Eagles are interviewing Washington football team defensive backs coach Chris Harris for their vacant defensive coordinator job. According to a source hey describes him. Rappaport does as a fast rising coach. Harris also played eight years in the NFL. So There's a name. Um You know? Certainly again. I always say when we're when we're talking about this kind of stuff, um Yeah. Even though the name doesn't blow you away doesn't mean that person isn't necessarily The right choice for the gig. Right? I mean, you know, certainly someone who I would think they I'm not saying they want to go like completely away. From Jim Schwartz. I don't mean schematically, but maybe Personality wise approach Y so Harris is he'll be 39 in August, Always 38 years old. He's AH D backs coach for the Washington football team. He was drafted by the Bears in the sixth round in 2005 played his college ball. Louisiana Monroe. He was on the Panthers, the Lions and the Jags. As well S O. That's his background. He, you know, kind of bounced around during his career. He's coached in Chicago, He was hired his defensive quality coach, and that's the way a lot of guys start under John Fox. 2013. He then went to the Chargers in 2016. I'm guessing this is where he and Syriani cross cross paths. With the Chargers. They were there at the same time aunt he joined the Washington football team as the defensive backs coach this past season under Ron Rivera, so That's the little quick bio the quick M O there on on Chris Harris. So that's what we're looking at. There
NFL picks, 2021 NFC Championship best bets
"My FC NFC gambling picks on gonna start In the NFC Packer's going up against the Bucks. We've obviously talked a lot about these games today, and also this week the Packers are out right now. To between a three and a 3.5 point favorite. Right now, Fanduel has them at three. I don't think it's gonna matter, really, although getting three is better than 3.5, given how often the game can end on a three point line, But I feel like the Packers are gonna pull away from the box. Like what I'm seeing from them offensively. I love the defense stepping up and I think a little bit. That bucks win was smoke and mirrors against the Saints. Four turnovers from the Saints. In fact, if Jared Cook doesn't fumble late in the third quarter, I think the Saints are poised there to pull away. Remember, he was running in the open field had a first down was gonna put the Saints near to feel Gold territory. If he just goes down on that play and does not fumble at that point in time, the Saints were up seven. They have a good chance to go up double digits. I'm impressed immensely by what Tom Brady has been able to accomplish with this Tampa Bay Buccaneer team. But I actually think the Packers are playing the best of any team in the NFL right now down the stretch at home, potentially some weather issues we know Brady has played well in weather. I think a lot of his Tampa Bay teammates will not coming from sunny Florida to Lambeau. I think it could have an impact on them and on this game, and as a result, I like the Packers in Lambeau to get it done to cover the three or the 3.5, depending on where you get it. I also like The over in this game. I think both quarterbacks offensive performances kind of rounding into shape. I like that. The Bucks. We're taking chances down the field, lot of playmakers at both wide receiver and running back for both these teams. In addition to the proven signal callers in Brady and in Rogers I like the over 51 a half and I like the Packers minus the three or minus the 3.5 dub. How would you break down the NFC Championship game? Do you agree or disagree with my take there? I definitely agree with the Packers side and usually the three or 3.5 is. It's usually a big deal. But I think this should this line should be higher. I think that should be like 4.5 ago. Five or 5.5 even The Packers have been dominating. They've been playing really, really good football. The Bucks they've been winning. But you could point back to the match up earlier in the season 38 to 10, which some of you are, you're going to say, Well, look at what happened when the box played against the Packers. That was week six. And you go ahead. Make your case, but I don't think it's very reflective. I mean, if you want to use prior weeks, I mean, the saint whipped the bucks two times in the regular season without any difficulty at all. And then the box came back and one in the third week. Every game is new, and I'm not worried it really that concerned with the first match up. Yeah, I'm not either I'm with you and I think E mean, this is believe it or not the first time Aaron Rodgers as ever hosted it, NFC Championship game. That's wild. I don't think he's gonna let this opportunity go to waste. I think the Packers Probably the best team in the NFL. Right now. I think they win this game by at least a touchdown. The over under. I'm not really sure I that feels about right to me. I think Green Bay if you're looking, if you want to play it over, maybe play their team total over. As if we like them as much as we do, minus the 3.5. You gotta assume what's the team total right now. 28 like that around there, So let's see what's 50 live math on the air as we know it's not our greatest strength 51 divided by two 25 years now, but it usually 26 27 in that right. I think they're going to score at least four touchdowns. Let's put it that way so that I'll get you over the 28. So I like the Packers minus the points here as well.
Philadelphia Eagles hire Nick Sirianni to replace Doug Pederson as head coach
"We're gonna talk about the new head coach. The eagles tired offense former offensive coordinator for the indianapolis colts. Under frank reich. Nick syrian of course This is a this is a guy who i don't think many of us of before the last couple of weeks so this is certainly certainly football. Guys know who. Nick serianni is people who are who are living breathing and and eat this stuff. No hixon's but for the casual fan. There was no reason to think he would be on anybody's shortlist. Of course eagles didn't have a shortlist. They had a long list and we're looking at seemingly every coordinator under the sun here over the last couple of weeks but just before we get into the details. What are your general impressions of nick. Serianni your i feel like It's gonna be hard to judge him early on because first off. He doesn't have head coaching experience. So he's going to be learning on the job and second he's coming into a situation where The idea of molding a quarterback is going to be tough. because he's gotta figure out who's his quarterback and Is this a question of are. Are you fixing the guy that looked like the cornerstone franchise quarterback. Are you putting out fires inside a locker room because of Are we are. We going to have factions inside that locker room that wanna see carson wentz or jalen hurts or there's so many unknowns on who's going to be the starter in september that this guy has to figure out but at the same time he has to figure out his way through the entire locker room so the stuff i've heard from guys that i trust in the nfl Guys that i i. I've been texting over the last You know six months but also especially during the last week in the coaching search. The coaches that they interviewed. Just show me that The person that they thought they were gonna have wasn't the guy more Things have changed on the quarterback situation. And you know when you when you see the connection that frank right has and the influence that he has with nick siri auntie and conversation with carson wentz. You start to connect the dots. Oh they'll this would naturally make sense but at the same time. I don't think he was on many people's radars and I feel i feel like you know. I have some optimism. But i come back to one thing and and i haven't been this way john while when it comes to the eagles and it's really depressing and i wanted to depress our audience and it doesn't matter who you have as a coach if the coach doesn't have any sense of power of putting together a staff if the coach doesn't have Any any say or strong influence on how to build the roster that is what kind of free-agent as well as we're kind of draft picks and that was a huge issue with doug and buying when you win the super bowl away. Doug won the super bowl. I think doug deserves a little more Room when it came to influence. And if that hasn't changed from above doug With the gm. Then what are we talked about. We're talking about an owner. Gm that's going to have more say more control and the same thing that we've seen before and i've said this before during the entire Coaching search. Why would a head coach with experience or reputation or the The hotshot innovative Guy that's coming in like lincoln riley. Why would they come into this situation. If they don't have a sense of control of power so. I think it's very predictable that we're seeing first time head coach Because it was the same thing we saw with. Doug it's it's the same track record and if you are going to follow the same stuff. You're gonna continue. Repeat the same mistakes over and over again above doug on who is making the picks right clearly clearly that has not been resolved yet or at least not publicly on understanding power. We figuring out the talent pool because what we're doing right now or what. The eagles have done right now has not worked. And when you look back at specially going back the last six seven years
