The Eagles have made it known that they requested permission to talk to Jay Gruden. But they still haven't inquired at all with the mancrush of Casual Fans Who Watch Monday Night Football And Love Guys They've Actually Heard Of, Jon Gruden. Jaws doesn't understand why the Eagles haven't reached out to him.
Jaws was talking with Mike Missanelli on 97.5 the Fanatic and expressed his preference for a guy who has Super Bowl experience ala Jon Gruden or Bill Cowher.
But Jaworski couldn't have been more direct about his advice to the
Eagles: "I would want a guy that is a proven winning Super Bowl coach."
"We know the job in Philly is not for everyone," he said. "You better

backbone, and be able to deal with the media and the fans of this
There's been plenty of debate as to why the Eagles haven't gone after either of the two guys mentioned above, from too expensive to too boisterous of a personality. What ever the reasoning may be, the Eagles haven't reached out to either, and Jaws doesn't get why not.
