latest. eagles brass led by jeffery lurie returned to philadelphia this afternoon. they spent the day interviewing chiefs offensive coordinator doug pederson. thinks fifth known interview, lurie, and howie roseman conduct since chip kelly was fire. doug pederson, you are saying luke warm, is this a guy you can get behind. >> i just don't think so. sometimes people say you have to go back and discover your future. that is what they are doing with andy reid, with doug pederson. he has been a loyal solder the whole time. i don't see command. i don't know him well enough to say he would be a good head coach. he doesn't call plays there. would i rather have a guy to really runs things first before i consider him a head coach. i'm very luke warm on doug pederson. >> andy reid gave him a ringing endorsement today. >> i think it is great, man. i think it is great. so, he has an opportunity, compliment to the hard work he has put in.
he has done a nice job. he is ready to do that. heck if he has the opportunity more power to him. >> all right. former giants coach, tom coughlin is reportedly due in tomorrow. he, of course, a former assistant here back in the 80's. two super bowl rings in new york, but four straight seasons where they didn't make a playoffs. does he have a legitimate shot or they just being nice. >> do you need a interview if you are tom coughlin. if i'm tom coughlin, here's my resume, i'll fax it to you. do you need it. >> can you you imagine howie roseman. >> you will interview for a job, with your track record. he is a a good fall back position. i think he knows what he is doing. he won two super bowls. he would take command of the program right away. i just think it is more for show. they want to bring everybody else in. just to make sure they cover their bases. i don't think coughlin will get the job. >> who do you see getting the the job. >> i think it is easy plan, come minute necessity theory,
and it involves sean mcdermott. not that i think he will blow me away as a candidate but easiest thing they can do right now. if you hire him, he brings pat shurmur they work together as a offensive coordinator. he brings sam bradford in because he likes to work with pat shurmur. domino effect, more stability as they go forward. i think they can win the division next year with that kind of a alignment, and hire steve spagnuolo as a defensive coordinator. all guys that worked together before would make easiest transition. >> recently our jamie a apody asked seth joyner about the qualities needed in a new head coach. >> having played for buddy ryan, a personality if there ever was one, what kind of personality dos this city and team need in a coach. this city embraces a type of person like that. >> philadelphia is a blue collar city. this is an in your face type city. hard working, you know, tough, give every ounce of energy that you have, pure hustle all
the time. they need a coach who will install that in their players. we are not shakes and sleep monitors, and sports science. that is not what this city is all about. this city is just hard nose, in your face, rumble, scrape your knees, scrape your elbows, in your face and that is the kind of coach that we need. >> chip kelly was not that. mike, what type of coach would you like to see brought in here. >> i don't really have a prototype guy. i know a lot of people in philadelphia want this guy to take charge and emotional on the sidelines. i don't think you need a guy who is emotional. you need a guy that brings a plan that wins. mcdermott would bring defensive coordinator together and i with go for defensive coach more than offensive coach. they have tried the offensive coach. get the defense going. >> if they keep pat shurmur, it was just one game but a sam bradford looked good. >> they need to keep bradford. they have no other choice.
pat shurmur keeps bradford. nfl wild card weekend wraps up, jeff skversky has those highlight, jeff. >> desean jackson clinched a playoff birth right here, two weeks ago. when redskins eliminated eagles in embarrassing fashion at the link. eagles went ice cold down the stretch. redskins won four straight heading in the playoffs today. jackson and redskins fighting for their playoff lives in green bay. jackson two catches, 17-yard. this in the first, he comes up short on the touchdown. the ball does not cross the goal line. only his foot. they have to settle for a field goal. jackson says hey, that is on me. point finger at the d too. redskins blow an 11 to nothing lead. packers rhawn away in the second half. james starks and eddie laci score rushing touchdowns. packers win 35-18. they will face arizona next. washington didn't beat a single team this year with the winning record. in minnesota, negative 6 degrees.
one of the coldest games in nfl history. vikings and seahawks fourth quarter, the seattle down nine to nothing. they come back. the russell wilson to doug baldwin. seattle would take a one point lead. minnesota can win this thing. 262nd left. vikings kicker blair walsh, a chip shot, are you kidding me. he misses. wow. seattle somehow, some way wins, ten-nine. they will play at carolina next. afc, pittsburgh faces denver next sunday, andy reid, andy reid still alive. he will face bill belichick and the the patriots in the playoffs for the first time since the super bowl 11 years ago. that is next saturday. i wonder if andy still thinks about that super bowl games. >> thanks, jeff. still ahead, sixers get lebron james, and the eastern conference leading cavilers tonight. we will get mike missanelli's take on sixers seemingly never ending rebuilding process. but first here's melissa magee with weather. >> here's the exclusive seven day forecast.
