Oh wow, despite the owner change I guess he wanted no part of the stink of that org

That makes things very interesting for Washington

Ben Johnson was not the head-coaching lock that people thought and his asking price spooked some teams, per sources.

Guess some of those reports about wanting an insane salary were true. Kind of wild to overplay your hand that much.

Or Washington used that story as cover

I'd want an insane salary too if I was going to be taking over in Washington or Carolina.

Probably even more true in Washington. As awful as Bryce Young looked this year he probably has more promise than any QB on the roster in Washington.

If that really is true, it feels like overplaying your hand a bit. There’s only so many jobs that open each year and that carousel can quickly close and leave you without a seat and those coaching seats can change overnight

This time last year both the eagles coordinators were getting floated as potential HC candidates, a year later they were looking for jobs. Not saying this will happen, but sometimes you have to fire while the iron is hot

Carolina I understand, one bc they have no assets and no real QB flexibility, I would tell them hell no too unless they wanted to godfather offer me. But Washington has some talent, and great draft capital to reset the table or get a QB in a good class at 2. That’s a sneaky great job now that the stank of Snyder is out the building

This is true, and they are drafting second overall, so I guess it's not as dire as the job once was.

Carolina on the other hand... Yikes, they are stuck without a first round pick, no flexibility at QB and an owner that has gone through 3 coaches in two years and is about as unlikable as anyone in the league. They'd have to give me a guaranteed contract and a huge buyout before I'd even talk to them. Seems like that job is a career ender right now.

Johnson knows there will be potentially a cowboys opening, bears, or maybe even Buffalo so could be holding out for that. He’s got same core coming back in DET, not a bad move if that’s his thought process

Yeah I get all that. There’s just a lot of assumptions built into that, and you could’ve missed your chance

You’d assume everything will roll smoothly for the lions next year, but if it’s bumpy or a big step down offensively, those same teams that seem like great jobs may look at you as a soured asset who also wants to get paid like a 3 time SB winner. Things change so quickly in the league

Both coordinators did get HC jobs last year. Jonathon Gannon with the Cardinals, and the Colts hired Shane Steichen.

Their replacements lasted less than a year with the Eagles. Both took the fall for the Eagles collapse this season.
