Have to stay? I don't think so. It would still be a new contract with the Eagles. Could the Eagles have attempted to block him leaving by not allowing an interview, because they were planning to promote him? I think so. Once they allowed him to interview, though, he was fair game.Correct me if I an wrong - since Rallis is under contract with Philly, wouldn't he have to stay if offered the DC role?
I think Gannon will let Rallis call his own plays, he'll just keep an eye on the defense & help if & when needed.Positives:
1. No VJ
2. No VJ
3. No VJ
Gannon will probably be calling the defense, at least at first, so Rallis will be kind of "interning" at DC this season. Sure would like to see a defense cover the middle of the field and screens. Maybe stopping the run would be nice. Hoping they plug some DL holes and can get a pass rush too.
Right, they might work out great but looking at this assembled staff and if someone gave me the ages and I was to guess who they coached, I would say they were parents coaching a Pop Warner teamIf he’s this well respected and no in NFL circles is blinking at this hire at 29 I’m thinking there might be something nice there. Fingers crossed.
But holy hell . . . 29!!!

Could our new crew be more white? Did we get the NFL interview process correct?
Reminds me of the time back in the 70s when I went for an interview for a job I really wanted. Two of the top people were doing the interview and said they wanted to hire me but to appear like they had met their minority quota they needed me to check one of the minority boxes on my application. I thanked them and left.
Never did tell them that I am part Native American and could have checked that. But they didn't suspect that and were just trying to cheat the system. Just didn't sit right with me! Always having to do the right thing cost me a lot in my lifetime. I could never just keep my mouth shut and go along with the program.
I know we are used to older ages in the NFL context and have seen a shift recently, but a lot of progress through science, innovation, literature, music or leaders such as MLK, the founding fathers during the Revolutionary War (and some war strategists) are found in youth, like 20's and 30's. Sometimes we forget that.
Certainly the same age could help football teans win games.
Wow! That was great & well worth watching. I’m sure that while the Eagles LB’s were learning how to shed blocks, our LB’s were on one of many cell phone breaksDive into the art of defeating blocks with Linebackers Coach Nick Rallis in this edition of Coaches Masterclass, presented by Lincoln Financial Group.www.philadelphiaeagles.com
