and marty can call a game..as per eagles site since 2006 when marty took over play calling eagles offense lead nfl in 25+ yard plays(unheard of in Jetland) 3RD IN TOTAL NET YARDS..5th in points per game..has orchestrated 4 of the 5 highest scoring years in eagle history..http://legacy.philadelphiaeagles.com...nhinweg_1.html
Good stuff. As much as I love defense the rules have been skewed towards the offense in such a way that you have to be able to score and in bunches. I'm just excited to never have to look at Sparano's or Tannenbaum's face ever again.
do u think idzik had input on this hire..i know rex has final say on coaches..
That is a good question. Rex err WRECKS did say he was straying from Ground & Pound a bit. He saw the light while he was sitting on the beach and stated he did fail on offense for the first 4 years. If so, this could have been his hire.
History tells us that coaches without talent don't do well. Look at Bellichick in Cleveland. Then he gets brady and insta-genius. But thanks for pointing out the obvious.
Not saying its a GREAT hire, but seems alittle early to hate the move.
History does not tell us that my friend. There are plenty of the of cords and HC's who have done above average (read top 15) without a ton of talent. He won a SB with Farve on a loaded team, $hit the bed in Detroit, and took shelter under Reid's shadow for several years. He was handed the keys to the so called dream team, after Reid lost his mind and was tossing the ball 60 times a game, and did nothing. Most of the record breaking achievements were organizational records.
Sure Belly had a bad run with ONE organization, but was a winner every well else. Even when Brady went down.
It never too early to hate a bad hire! Especially, when its done before the new GM is in the building.
Surprised at the hate for this hire. He's had a ton of success developing QBs and scoring points. Most of that was with Andy Reid (which scares me a little) but his resume (outside of a HC stint in Detroit which was a disaster) is pretty damn good.
Coach Andy Reid gave Mornhinweg the play calling responsibilities after the Eagles' disastrous loss to the Indianapolis Colts, 45-21. The Eagles won all six games, employing a more balanced run/pass attack. The wins included an unprecedented three consecutive December divisional road games, all with a back-up quarterback, Jeff Garcia. It was the only time Reid yielded play calling responsibilities, a role Mornhinweg continued through the 2007 season.
