Here's a thought: Will #Eagles make a play for Kevin Stefanski and join #Giants? He has deep ties to Philly. He and Doug Peterson know many of same people. So many ties between #nyg #vikings #flyeaglesfly.
I had this thought

earlier. Stefanski went to HS and college in Philly but they currently don't have an OC opening. It depends on Reich and Indy.

This Stefanski guy is becoming a pain ITA and isn't worth the headache. Time to move on.

Seriously. At some point the guy is either interested or he isn't.

How is he the problem? I dont get this point. He is under contract. The Vikings have to give him permission. He doesnt control his own destiny in this situation.
So heís going to turn down a chance to be OC

To be a QBs coach? Ok

Exactly. He has been blocked from doing anything until the Vikings talked to DeFilippo. He was Minny's Plan B
What a waste of breath and typing.

So, Minnesota will grant permission to the Eagles for Stefanski to make a lateral move? Not happening. No way in hell Minnesota does that.

The only way this makes sense is if Reich gets the HCing job in Indy.
Say Reich goes to Indy.

Why would the Vikings grant permission for Stefanski to the Eagles and not the Giants.? I would think Shurmur would have a good relationship with the Vikes.
Curious why Staley wouldnít be part of the Eagles plan

Why do people think Stefanski would be their choice.

I predict we hire Stefanski today, but if we donít Iím not going to lose sleep over it.

It's not entirely his choice. This really isn't complicated.

Are purple really this clueless? Good lord. He can't do anything unless the Vikings give the Giants permission.

Hahaha. You definitely have your finger on the pulse of the situation...
I still think he'd choose the Giants under most scenarios  
Giantfan in skinland : 2/9/2018 12:03 pm : link
But this isn't completely crazy. As a start, you have to acknowledge that the situation in Philly is as good as you can ask for. Top notch up and coming talent at QB. Fantastic OL. Solid talent at the skill positions. Innovative HC. It's a great place for any position coach/coordinator to be right now. So then it just comes down to what's being offered where.

1. If Reich bolts for Indy and the offer in Philly is an OC position, I could definitely see him preferring Philly. That said, he seemingly knows and likes Shurmur, so we may still have the edge (although the overlap in coaching trees/system is significant...so that may not be enough).

2. If the choice is glorified QB coach/OC with the Giants or QB coach with the Vikes or Eagles, I ASSUME he'd take the Giants job, but there are factors that could lead him to pick one of the others. He knows the offensive personnel on the Vikes and was successful there. As noted above, the system/coaching tree overlap with Defillipo is there. Or, he could decide to hitch his wagon to Wentz (a pretty good idea, imo). Not as loft a title in the short term, but he may consider the long term trajectory to be better.
It's kind of funny that he  
Pete in MD : 2/9/2018 12:15 pm : link
says Stefanski and Pederson "know many of the same people." The NFL coaching fraternity is relatively small, of course they know the same people. That happens in a lot of professions, including mine. They have never worked on the same staff but have a minor connection through Brad Childress, who brought Stefanski to Minnesota after he interned for one year with the Eagles.
I think he's probably referring to the fact  
Giantfan in skinland : 2/9/2018 12:44 pm : link
that they're all on the Reid coaching tree. Guys he's worked with/for have worked on offensive staffs with/for all of the guys he's considering joining. Probably a much more direct connection than he has with guys on other staffs through the general coaching fraternity.

Of course

to keep him away from us as much as anything else. This has been going on for years. Eagles jump in front of us for somebody we want. But we never do it to them. Hope that changes now .

God your posts are annoying.

If an OC Goes to Philly, He gets to ride the surge of a Great Young QB.... and may of us Homers need to accept that the NYG situation is going to be a bit Messy. That's the Truth.

If Stephanski can Choose, he should choose Philly...and That may land Staley here.

Sometimes, the best thing that can happen is what Should Happen.
