Could this be a new era for the Philadelphia Eagles? After a horrendous ending to their 2023 season, the Eagles were under all kinds of scrutiny and Nick Sirianni had to bear the brunt of the team being ruled out of the playoffs. The fans wanted Sirianni sacked, but his meeting with Jeffrey Lurie sorted out things as the HC continues for the next season as well. Under his consideration further, the Eagles have decided to give forethought to Kellen Moore.

Howard Eskin’s post on X gives more clarity about what’s in store for the Eagles for the 2024 season. The HC’s decision to shift Sean Desai and Matt Patricia took an erroneous turn and the team fixed it by hiring Vic Fangio. Well, they are not done with the changes as there is a new addition to the coaching staff per the latest update.

Per recent developments and Eskin’s post, the Eagles spoke to Kellen Moore on Friday and are considering him for the new Offensive Coordinator position. The team fired Brian Johnson, who spent two years as a quarterback coach for the Eagles under Shane Steichen. The radio host’s post on X was captioned, “After Kellen Moore spoke with #Eagles on Friday it appears the team is close to making him team’s new OC. @SportsRadioWIP.”

This decision came in recently as the Eagles confirmed the hiring of Vic Fangio as the team’s new Defensive Coordinator. Fangio has a 40-year coaching experience in the National Football League and the Eagles want to take major advantage of it after the disappointing season they have had. The Philly team this year ranked one of the lowest in terms of defense, appearing direly in need of an experienced hand.

Coming back to Moore, he was the Chargers’ OC for the 2023 season and things didn’t work out as well for him there. Before that, he was the Cowboys QB’s coach as he started working with the Dallas team back in 2018. Hiring Moore results from a need for “fresh ideas” that the Philly team is supposedly lacking.

The decision was impending because Sirianni has been using the same run-of-the-mill offensive schemes for the past 3 years, now needing to look at a set of new ideas. Sirianni in a conversation with FOX Sports gave the reasoning behind considering Kellen Moore as the new OC.

The Eagles offense hasn’t made any great strides in the past season and it became even more clear with the way their journey ended in 2023. We saw the team struggling with scoring points, getting to the end zone, and allowing more points than they should have. However, despite all this, Sirianni is in his “fix everything” arc and is trying to fix the “stale” offense desperately till the new season begins.

“But yeah, to me, we got a little bit stale on offense by the end of the year, and these ideas and this new person coming in is meant to take away the staleness and add the value of what they’re adding to the offense.” Mentioned Sirianni, highlighting the role he expects Moore to take in the dynamics set for the team’s offesne.
