Traveler Vic Posted December 4, 2020 Share Posted December 4, 2020 An interesting article today in the Inq. about Rich Scangarello. He was brought in to improve our offense. His background is Shannahans run pass system in Denver. A question that i have is who brought him in and for what purpose? Scangarello's expertise is in an outside run game, giving fast players in space, a chance to succeed. Doug does not run the ball and from the very first moment he resented Scangarello's presence/ ignored his advices. DP certainly was not the one requesting more coaches or advice. Was it Howie? Possibly ....but Howie does not have the power to install a coach , whose balanced run philosophy directly contradicts with the Head Coach. This leaves only one, and most likely suspect, Lurie brought in Scangarello. Only Lurie has this kind of power. Whatever Scangerello brings, run or pass, is irrelevant. What is relevant is Lurie is mending in the coaching decisions, DP is failing miserably with his own play calling, there is an open confrontation between DP and Lurie. Part of me feels sorry for Scangarello. He was brought in to help...but instead he is left standing on the sidelines watching Lurie, Howie, DP duking it out. I wonder what the Eagles spin will be when ignored, unlisted to Scangarello will get fired at the end of the year? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
