Ron Rivera could join the Eagles

It looked for a long time as if the NFC East would have two legitimate Super Bowl hopefuls this season. The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys looked especially strong at various stages of the campaign. Unfortunately, this didn't prevent both from suffering embarrassing losses over a dramatic wildcard weekend.

The Eagles' downfall started well over a month ago. They were 10-1 at one stage before tailing off dramatically. They were an unprepared and seemingly unmotivated team that the 9-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers easily disposed of last weekend.

Much like the situation in Dallas, it seems like Nick Sirianni is going to get another shot in 2024. Others - his offensive and defensive coordinators, in particular - won't be so lucky if reports are accurate.

Sirianni is supposedly on the phone identifying potential coordinator candidates. Considering how much pressure he'll be under next season and how many changes could be coming to the playing personnel, acquiring coaches with experience would be preferable.

Ron Rivera, perhaps?

Rivera knows a lot about the Eagles during his game-planning as Washington Commanders head coach. He's unlikely to hold any emotional attachment that would make joining a division rival difficult. Although his head coaching tenure didn't reach the heights expected, he represents a substantial upgrade on Matt Patricia.
