Vikings officially requested permission to interview Eaglesí QB coach John DeFilippo about their OC job, per source.

Eagles OC Frank Reich interviews for Colts HC on Friday.

Super Bowl brain drain could be underway in Philadelphia.
Why the delay

I think it's pretty stupid that these coaches arent in place by now

I get the Eagles were in the SB but that was 4 days ago now.

The new league year starts in about a month.
I believe that DeFilippo is under Eagles control

for another week before his contract expires. The Eagles reportedly were preventing teams from interviewing him because they want him as their OC if Reich leaves.
Rules

#Vikings might have to wait until 10 days after Eagles season ends (Feb. 14) to talk to John DeFilippo about offensive coordinator job They're willing to wait but trying to get permission to talk earlier. Source says DeFilippo definitely interested in job
The Eagles have f*cked up everything this year...

61 yard lucky prayer FG.

Beat us twice.

Beat Shurmur in the title game which robbed us of the chance to see if BB really would come here.

Landed in Minnesota for the SB and interrupted all of us in the middle of watching SB 42 highlights.

Won the SB.

Now they are holding out on coaches.

Ugh.

Ultimately DeFilippo is the one that controls his own destiny. If he wants the Giants, he'll end up here. Eagles only control him for 1 more week. If DeFilippo doesn't choose the Giants, it's because he believes more in the Vikings or doesn't believe in Eli (the guy who DeFilippo has to "revive"), which will raise additional as to why we're starting a QB coaches don't believe in.
If DeFilippo decides Vikings over Giants for OC

could it just be he wants to call the plays and not because of Eli?

The Vikings will interview Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Thursday.
I like Stefanski anyway

Can't be that simple. Doesn't fit the narrative of the Eli bashers

That's the key and what I think will lead him to end up with the Vikings and not the Giants. Of course he could also end up with the Colts if Reich gets the HC position.

No kidding. This thread is about the Vikings requesting permission. Why did they wait so long to request permission?

Or he just becomes the OC of the Eagles which is much more likely and a much better option to getting a HCing job.
Iíll ask this again ... what happens in this scenario?

Scenario ...  
Spider56 : 2/8/2018 7:46 am : link
Reich goes to the Colts, Flip becomes the iggles OC, Stef stays in Minny.
Who is our OC ? The Duce or ???
surprised NYG have shown no interest in
