Some in the Local Media Took Sean McDermott’s Bait Hook, Line and Lucky Charm

Congratulations to Sean McDermott, who’s interested in a head coaching job. He has been granted an interview with the Cleveland Browns, who just hired the Mets’ VP of personnel (sic) as their chief strategy officer, and whose quarterback wore a brilliant disguise and fudged an Instagram geo-tag so he could get drunk in Vegas. Unfortunately, McDermott’s interview dry run on 97.5 this morning didn’t get him an interview with the Eagles. Not yet, at least. But it worked on the local media, which was happy to trumpet his qualifications:

Fine. Tornoe and Zangaro merely addressed his interest. But Garry Cobb… well, haha, this is embarrassing:

If I was Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, I would have given the head coaching job to Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott this morning after his interview he did with Anthony Gargano on the 97.5 The Fannatic. He sounded like just what the doctor ordered.

With the same players, the Eagles defense would be greatly improved under his leadership.

The young defensive signal caller grew up in the area and he knows about the passion of Eagles fans.   McDermott was an Eagles defensive back coach for about ten years during Andy Reid’s run with the team.  He took the defensive coordinator position at a tough time and went down with a sinking ship.


Garry Cobb was almost a congressman. Not sure if that would’ve improved things in Washington or not.

  1. They’re not the only ones. 97.5 is asking if the Eagles need a “Philly guy” as their coach. I swear it’s becoming more and more embarrassing to be apart of this fan base. I mean do people actually care if the guy is from Philly? Reid wasn’t. Manuel definitely wasn’t. They won with Manuel getting the only title. If you really need a coach that’s “from here” please find that guy and root for his team. I can’t take it anymore.

    1. The only thing you left out was the requirement of the next coach being a “4 for 4 guy”. Seriously, the callers imitate the hosts. Each one more dreadful than the next. The only thing that matters is building a winning team and not listening to the boobs who call in or host radio shows in this city.

    2. I could not have said it any better myself. I feel exactly the same way. This whole Philly Guy thing is so embarrassing. ” THE GUY HAS TO UNDERSTAND THE PHILLY FAN MINDSET AND HOW PASSIONATE WE ARE ” Last time I checked, we are a good football town but a pretty fairweather sports town overall. If the red sox stink Fenway is still sold out, if the Phillies stink there are 30 thousand empty seats in the stadium, so its all bullshit. But it starts with the guys on the radio like Anthony Gargano, if I have to hear about the Philly mentality one more time and how players and coaches need to relate to the fans, I will vomit. It makes us look immature and childish. Do you think Bellicheck gives a flying fuck about the fans ?

  2. Dos:
    1) Talk about Philadelphia things like traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway
    2) Mention that you’re from the Philadelphia area
    3) Talk about Brian Dawkins
    4) Talk about great players and pretend you had something to do with their success

    1) Mention that you once got fired for incompetence by the same organization you’re hoping to coach.
    2) Talk about how you don’t actually call any of the defensive plays in Carolina
    3) Bring up that you’ve never been successful unless you’re working directly under one of the top defensive minds in football
