No one would have been fired even if this team had missed the playoffs.

Groh seemed most likely to be replaced, but the last 3 games of the regular season made it seem like Wentz's health had a lot do to with the offensive struggles, and that Jeffery's absence in the first two weeks also hurt Foles.

Nick, after his first INT, became tentative and started missing easy throws. And, more importantly, once Brooks went out, we could not run it at all. Nick is at his best when the running game keeps Ds honest, not when the only effective avenue is the passing game.

As far as the Bears...they have a strong D, they made most Os look weak all year.

It'd be nice if the Eagles didn't need all-pro personnel at every position to compensate for the lack of creative play calling.

A performance by Foles better than what QBs typically did at Soldier Field in 2018.

Foles's worst career playoff game. I don't know what happened, but it definitely looked like he was playing tentatively.

I think everyone would have been coming back even if they hadn't gotten help from the Bears in week 17. But there's no way that a coordinator was going to take the "fall" for losing in the divisional round following an SB victory.

Nope. Playoffs are fun especially when you are the team no one wants to play.

I'M NOT SURE I BELIEVE IN THE NOTION...
'NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY'. IF YOUR AN ATHLETE, ESPECIALLY A PRO, YA WANT TO TAKE ON THE BEST OUT THERE.

AT LEAST I/ WE ALWAYS DID WHEN I WAS PLAYING, WHETHER IT BE FOOTBALL OR FAST PITCH SOFTBALL.
WHEN I WAS PITCHING I WANTED THE BIG BATS....WANTED THE CHALLENGE. ....
AND I GOT EM, THEY POUNDED MY FAST BALL SO FAR IT GOT LOST.
BUT I LOOKED FWD TO THE NEXT TIME, TO TRY MY CHANGE UP, OR CURVE BALL ....WHICH THEY POUNDED SO HARD IT GOT LOST.......

MY POINT BEING I WANTED TO FACE THEM. HEAD ON.... FACE TO FACE.

I honestly think Carson was the issue, not Groh.

I think the run they went on tends to point in this direction. I don't mean it as a knock on Carson, I just don't think he was ready. If not physically, certainly mentally. We probably all discount how crazy it must have been to be playing at an MVP caliber level, get hurt and then watch the backup win the SB. That on top of the injury itself was probably a lot. I think he'll be back to normal next year.

Exactly and it turned into Ertz is my safety blanket bc he had no training camp and all that ish. Hopefully Nick gone will help him.

I'll be the first to say it, I'm a Carson knob slobber and absolutely love the guy. Don't get me wrong, I love Nick too, but I'd be willing to eat my dad's shit out of a hat to see Wentz get back to what he was last year.

That being said, piggybacking off McCarthy, Carson also had a weak OC and a rookie QB coach, replacing two stud coaches, as the main guys to help rehabilitate him throughout the season.

It appeared to me that they tried to over-complicate the playbook for Wentz and expected him to run that offense like he did last year when he was coming off a serious injury, not that Groh/Foles had better chemistry than Groh/Wentz. I wouldn't be surprised if Carson had more success in the adjusted offense they ran with Foles.

Default With Groh I think the Impact is less

because of the whole Dougie calling the Plays,,,ect..but we saw what having FR did for the offense so we can get better there..

Shwartz can't call a game with a lead to save his life...No blitzes to get a man free....... on 4th-19,,,come on!!!!!!!

We can upgrade here.... I say don't shut the door on the prospect that the Eagles may yet decide to move on from Someone.

What's weak here is your contention that Jerruh's move proves teams with shitty records aren't more likely to shitcan coaches.

Default I object!

Point was minor success doesn’t guarantee your job.

See Schottenheimer after going 14-2
See Mularkey last year
See the Raptors coach last year for a paralllel
