It was nearly a month ago that the Phillies re-signed JT Realmuto and really began to shed the notion that they would be cheap and cut costs this winter.

It was the first step to returning their offensive starters, but it seems that plan may have to wait a bit.

On Thursday, manager Joe Girardi told the press that Realmuto had suffered a fractured thumb. It is an injury that will reportedly sideline him for at least two weeks.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports that former GM John Dorsey will join the Lions new front office.

Dorsey had joined the Eagles earlier this season as a consultant/talent evaluator. While they may have been able to pick him mind regarding this upcoming free agency and draft, he will not be around for the start of either event.

After a week of Josh McDaniels is the guy talk, the Eagles have found their guy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the team will be hiring Colts OC Nick Sirianni to be their head caoch instead.

having served as Frank Reich's offensive coordinator for the past few years, his offense has been in the top 10 twice (2018 and 2020) in both yards and points per game, with the one down year (2019) being the season that Andrew Luck retired suddenly during the preseason games. The team still managed to be in the top half of the league in 2019 despite the QBs sudden departure leaving the team without a plan.

News broke on Sunday night of two more head coaching moves in the process of finalized.

The Chargers opted to hire Rams DC Brandon Staley and the Lions then quickly moved on Saints assistant Dan Campbell.

The Chargers hiring Staley takes a top candidate off the board as the Eagles did not even get to interview him. It also likely means that the Eagles are unlikely to hire a defensive head coach with Robert Saleh having already been hired for the Jets.

The only other remaining opening is with the Texans, a team whose only positive to a coach would be quarterback Deshaun Watson, who will force his way off the team by all accounts.

On Sunday, reports appeared seemingly out of nowhere that head coach Doug Pederson's job was not safe quite yet.

By Monday afternoon, the coach was out as Philly's head coach.

Clearly, his meeting with owner Jeff Laurie did not go well and the team released the below statement from Laurie shortly after the meeting.

The statement says that the two parties will part ways, but does not expressly mention when so the team could potentially get some draft capital back by trading him should someone be interested as the Jets previously were.

On Monday, the Eagles took care of some housekeeping.

While there was drama about the Eagles securing the 6th pick on Sunday night and some pressers, but none of that truly has any bearing on the future of the franchise as it is the actions taken (or not taken that matter).

The day after securing that pick, the Eagles took control of 10 players for the 2021 season that would have otherwise been free agents eligible to sign anywhere.

Eagles Evaluation: Brutal Final Game Shows Why No NFC East Team Should Be In Playoffs

Embed from Getty Images

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles had no chance to get into the playoffs, had 10 players ruled out and still the national media seemed to be appalled by what they saw last night.

A team taking a look at their players without a care in the world if that means they wind up with a better pick? Getting some experience to guys deeper on the depth chart while simultaneously doing what is best for their franchise? Imagine that!

What type of world do we live in where a 6-10 team cannot count on a 4-10-1 team to throw away their best future just so that their other rival can be embarrassed on national TV next week?

This game was an embarrassment, but for other reasons, chiefly that: 1. The NFL thought THIS was a prime game to flex to SNF 2. There is a playoff team with an “elite” defensive line that could barely beat an offensive line starting two tackles no one outside Philadelphia has ever heard of and with Zach Ertz as their top non-OL blocker 3. A playoff team that faced a secondary consisting of just three corners, two of which were UDFA (one whom has been with the team for just a month), and couldn’t figure out how to pass a ball downfield to take advantage of that.

The real embarrassment is that the NFL thought this playoff team, which could barely scrape by a team made up of third and fourth string guys, was worthy of SNF and that teams that couldn’t beat that very team were deserving of more effort to help THEM get into the playoffs as though there were not 15 previous weeks for those other teams to make their playoff destiny not ride on the efforts of a 4-win team.

As for the Eagles, they appeared to look pretty good, though how much of that is how awful Washington is remains up in the air.
