2. Eric Bieniemy
Bieniemy shockingly hasn’t been mentioned for any head coach or offensive coordinator roles.
Therefore, if the Eagles wanted to go against the grain and not take an established head coach, then Bieniemy should be on their radar. The 54-year-old joined Washington last offseason as their offensive coordinator/assistant head coach after spending the previous five years with Kansas City.
This season, the Commanders’ offense had their series of ups and downs as they were working with a first-year starting quarterback in Sam Howell. The overall team stats weren’t great, but we remember what Bieniemy did in KC with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. They were creative, had motion, and scored points.
What are two things that Eagles fans wished the offense had more of? Creativity and motion to help get their playmakers into open space and create big plays. Philly’s offense was stale this season and didn’t have an identity, which Nick Sirianni and Brian Johnson couldn’t solve.
At the same time, I also understand Bieniemy would be a long shot to be the head coach in Philly, as the front office could go with an established guy after the Sirianni experiment flamed out this season.
Nonetheless, it would be great if the Eagles could get Bieniemy inside the building as an HC or offensive coordinator. He could get this offense playing consistently and have Jalen Hurts playing at an MVP level again.
