According to a report, the Philadelphia Eagles requested a head coach interview with Kansas City head offensive coordinator Eric Bynemi NFL Insider Mike Garfolo. It is unclear when the Chiefs are still alive in the 2021 NFL Playoffs, with Binemi available for interview.
It would certainly be something if the Eagles fired former chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson and replaced him only with his eventual successor in Philly.
It seems unlikely to happen, however. As we wrote earlier on Saturday:
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN says Bynemy is set to exit the hiring cycle for the second consecutive year. He is clearly a popular name among fans, but he is not actually associated with the Eagles yet. [until now]. Some reports about Beenemi’s interview are poor. He also has an “uneasy past” to ponder. Fowler says the Eagles are “eyeing other candidates”, pointing their attention elsewhere.
It is not difficult to understand why EB has generated so much buzz, however. Here’s how the chief is ranked in offensive scoring since he was promoted to OBC:
2018 – First
2019 – 5th
2020 – 6th
Of course, it’s hard to say how much credit EB gives on his own when he’s not going to play full-time and he’s working with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. But one would think that EB would be entitled to some level of credit for KC’s success.
Do you want the Eagles to appoint Eric Bynemi?
