In wake of the Eagles making me sad and the fact that I likely won't get to watch Derrick Rose make a bid for a second MVP this year, its been a depressing year for sports for me already.
While I was sitting back working on a medical assignment from class, I decided to take a break and rethink the Castillo signing. Needless to say what I still think about the move. But it got me thinking about something. What if BGN were a pool of coaches and I was a GM?
So just to take our mind off of our massively underachieving team and its inept coaching staff for a minute, we gonna choose our own coaches.
Each person who wants is gonna cast a name for a specific coaching position for the Philadelphia Eagles. But they can only be from this site. (For example: Head Coach--JasonB). We are gonna combine some of the positions into one so we don't struggle too much with deciding names. The positions are all the following:
Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, WR/TE coach, OL coach, RB/FB coach, DL coach, LB coach, Secondary Coach, Special Teams Coordinator.
So yeah you can cast 10 names all together. If one name ties two positions (for example: JimmyK is tied as both the OL coach and the DL coach) that person will decide which position they would prefer and the runner up for the position that they did not choose will be named to that position. Oh, and you CANNOT cast yourself for a position because I can already picture everyone casting a vote for themselves as HC and I will never be able to decide one. Plus, you're job is to picture yourself as the GM anyways.
Sometime Saturday night or early Sunday morning (possibly with help from Jason and Jimmy) I will tally up all the names and votes and reveal the the BGN coaching roster prior to our sunday night game against the Giants. I'm a little bit of a busy man during the weekdays so I'll do the best I can to keep up with it during then, but come the weekend it should be a lot easier. Just please try to keep the switches to a minimum if you can.
If you don't want to be apart of it, that's your prerogative, I only mean this to be as something kind of fun in such a dull NFL season for the Eagles. Plus, it'll be interesting to see what members think of each other for certain positions since there are so many of us and so few positions (hopefully I'm not setting up a ticking time bomb).
The floor is yours from here on for whoever wants apart of it. Enjoy yourselves.We have some ties in place at a couple positions and a few people need to pick twice because they were elected twice at two positions. As of right now, the coaching staff looks like:
WR/TE Coach: GreenInBaltimore
RB/FB Coach: JasonB
LB Coach: macjack09
ST Coordinator: BigBlueIntervention (I don't know how, y'all voted)
The positions lacking are Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, O-Line Coach, D-Line Coach, and Secondary Coach.
At Head coach their is a tie between JimmyK, Bob_Q, and EvilBanner (JasonB would have been in the tie, but he was selected to RB/FB above everyone else). So by the time the second games start tonight at 4:15 ET/3:15 CT, if everyone could re-vote between those 3, it would be appreciated.
djackfan-10 lead votes in both Offensive Coordinator and Defensive Coordinator, so he gets to pick which one he would rather coach.
wild_eagle lead votes in both O-Line coach and D-Line coach, so he gets to pick which one he would rather coach.
At Secondary Coach there is a tie between AnthroEagle, Route36, and D3Keith. So by the time the second games start tonight at 4:15 ET/3:15 CT, if everyone could re-vote between those 3, it would be appreciated.
