Inside the Birds: Behind the Curtains at NovaCare
Strange, mercurial, odd, baffling, head-scratching, mind-numbing.
Pick any adjective to describe the past few days at the NovaCare Complex, in which two assistants coaches were fired, including offensive coordinator Mike Groh, less than 24 hours after Doug Pederson had insisted that they would be back.
There was also the mixed message from Pederson on the fate of defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, followed by an organizational backpedal through the media. Reports have surfaced suggesting owner Jeffrey Lurie decided the fate of the assistants, trumping Pederson.
What's really going on behind closed doors at the NovaCare Complex?
In the latest Inside the Birds, Eagles Insiders Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher dive deep into the madness at team headquarters over the past few days, giving sourced intel on why the Eagles fired Groh and Carson Walch, the fate of Schwartz, potential candidates to become Pederson's next offensive coordinator, and more intel on what led to the drafting of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and other issues that came out of the Pederson and Howie Roseman press conferences.
