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
not be sensitive, you better have a tough skin, you better have a strong
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.

Pete Mackanin continues to play musical chairs with his logjam of infielders.
Tonight, Cesar Hernandez returns to the Phillies' lineup playing second and leading off. He sat against lefty Clayton Kershaw and will face righty Yu Darvish tonight. Hernandez has fared better against right-handers (.293) than southpaws (.279). He leads the team with a .359 OBP this season.
Maikel Franco will take a seat tonight. Franco has been much better over his last 10 games. In that span, Franco is 15 for 35 (.371) with two homers and seven RBIs. His average for the season is still just at .232.
J.P. Crawford will take over at the hot corner and bat seventh. Crawford has been sort of up and down since his call up, but his patented control of the strike zone has certainly translated at the big league level. The rookie is hitting a modest .256 so far but has an OBP of .340.

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Odubel Herrera, CF
4. Rhys Hoskins, 1B
5. Nick Williams, RF
6. Aaron Altherr, LF
7. J.P. Crawford, 3B
8. Jorge Alfaro, C
