The Eagles will have their third play-caller in three season during the 2024 season.

Last year Brain Johnson replaced Shane Steichen and now has been replaced by former Cowboys and Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

The website The 33rd Team ranked the top play-callers in the NFL with Steichen ranking as one of the Top 10 in the league, ranking No. 8 overall.

So where does Moore rank on their list? According to The 33rd team he is just below the middle of the pack, coming in at No. 19 out of 32 teams on their list.

Kellen Moore is solid. Nothing more, nothing less.

Moore has a great understanding of variety and fundamentals. Moore calls a lot of staple West Coast concepts, especially in the short to intermediate game. We've also seen pretty expansive run games from Moore in the past, specifically with the Cowboys.

Moore's passing game can feel too static, though. Too many stop routes and sharp breaks rather than getting guys on the move and allowing for routes that work freely in space.

Moore probably isn't the wunderkind play-caller he was expected to be three years ago, but he's not a bust either. He's a perfectly adequate coordinator.

It will be interesting to see if Moore is calling his offense, Nick Sirianni's offense or some hybrid of his and Sirianni's offense.

Either way, the Eagles are hoping he is closer to Steichen than Johnson.

Some other interesting names on the list include former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and Jaguars offensive coordinator Press Taylor, were ranked just ahead of Moore at No. 17 on the list.

Depending on who you want to give the credit to, "Jacksonville Jaguars play-caller" could be higher or lower on this list.

When Doug Pederson led the offense in 2022, the Jaguars looked good. They got off to a slow start, as was expected coming off the Urban Meyer era, but they rounded into form during the last two months. Their short-to-intermediate passing game was as good as anyone's.

With Press Taylor calling the offense in 2023, the unit looked disjointed. In fairness to Taylor, the offensive line took a step back, which affected the pass protection and the team's ability to run the ball. Taylor never found any answers to work around that, though.

Who knows what we'll get from Pederson and Taylor in 2024? Could be good or bad.

Another interesting name on the list, is Ventnor resident and Holy Spirit alum, Greg Roman, who was just hired by the LA Chargers.  He was ranked No. 21 overall.

It feels like the Greg Roman discourse has swung too far the other way.

Yes, it was probably time for a change in Baltimore. Roman helped Lamar Jackson to an MVP in 2019, but the offense, in part because of shaky wide receiver play, struggled to hit those highs again.

Roman is largely a successful coach, though. He led a new-age offense with Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco. He followed that up with a sweet little stint with the Buffalo Bills, turning Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins into a force to be reckoned with.

Maybe Roman isn't the shiny young coordinator everyone wants nowadays, but he has a history of producing quality offense. He'll probably do so again with the Los Angeles Chargers.

In the NFC East, the Giants tandem of head coach Brian Daboll and OC Mike Kafka ranked No. 16, Cowboys head coach and play caller, Mike McCarthy was ranked No. 18 and new Commanders OC Kliff Kingsbury was near the bottom of the pack at No. 26.
