The Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff? More like the Philadelphia EAGLETS coaching staff.

Get it? Because most of these dudes they’re hiring are relatively young.

  • Head coach Nick Sirianni — 39 years old
  • Offensive coordinator Shane Steichen — 35 years old
  • Quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson — 33 years old
  • Tight ends coach Jason Michael — 42 years old
  • Pass game coordinator Kevin Patullo — 39 years old
  • Defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon — 37 years old

So, the Eagles are getting younger. But are they getting better?

Jimmy Kempski and I were (once again) joined by special guest Dan Klausner to discuss as much on the latest BGN Radio podcast. You can [CLICK HERE TO LISTEN] to our conversation or stream the episode below:

Show topics include ...


  • Evaluating Sirianni and what we know about him. There are some positives that stand out, such as signs of player development.
  • There seems to be a real lack of buzz around this hire. Are Eagles fans more apathetic about this team than they have been in a long time?
  • Not really buying Sirianni as some kind of QB guru.
  • Does Carson Wentz even want to be here?
  • Why are the Eagles trying to recreate the Colts or the Chargers?
  • Did the Eagles make a mistake by not hiring Duce Staley?


  • Does the Shane Steichen hire justify some of the excitement it’s generated?
  • The Jonathan Gannon hire seems like a good one. Intriguing background.
  • Thoughts on the new position coaches.
  • The great John Dorsey is gone.
  • PLUS: Some Senior Bowl and 2021 NFL Draft talk.


From what we know about the Eagles’ new coaching staff so far, is it better or worse than last year?
