Since the night of Tuesday, Dec. 29, when the Eagles announced that they had fired Chip Kelly, nothing about them has become so clear as this: When it came to making a bold choice and seeing it through, owner Jeffrey Lurie never put any courage behind his convictions. Lurie likes to speak of the Eagles as a forward-thinking, risk-taking organization, always driving the train, never passengers on it. That self-image led him and Howie Roseman to hire Kelly in 2013, to bet that Kelly's unorthodox thinking about football and training would lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory.

THERE WERE 20 to 25 candidates "that we spent a lot of time on," when the Eagles made a list of head-coaching possibilities, Ron Jaworski said Friday. He said a thorough vetting process knocked the candidates down to the half-dozen who were interviewed, with Doug Pederson emerging as the eventual choice. Jaworski served as a "special adviser" to the search committee of team chairman Jeffrey Lurie, team president Don Smolenski and vice president Howie Roseman. Jaworski said veteran former NFL general manager Bill Polian also advised, though Polian did not sit in on interviews.

No one knows. Doug Pederson will be the Eagles' next head coach, and no one knows how he'll fare. Again: no one. Anyone who says anything else is selling you a knockoff Rolex. People will pass their judgments, of course. People who have played with Pederson when he was a journeyman quarterback, who have coached alongside him, who have talked football with him, will endorse him. People who follow the Eagles and root for the Eagles will hope for the best with him. Their endorsements and hope offer no tangible indication of whether Pederson will be a good head coach or a bad one. People who have played with Pederson or been around him or who are in or around the NFL and are paid to deliver opinions - usually at the highest possible decibel level - will blast the hire.

The Eagles will hire Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their next head coach, league sources confirmed Thursday. Because the Chiefs are still in the playoffs, the Eagles must wait for their season to conclude before the move will be official. The Chiefs will play the New England Patriots on Saturday. "We have concluded our search for a new head coach," an Eagles spokesman said. "No further interviews are scheduled. " The selection of Pederson is a nod by owner Jeffrey Lurie to the success and environment that the team had under Andy Reid.

ON THE DAY Andy Reid signed him to quarterback the Eagles, amid widespread civic disillusionment, Doug Pederson declared, "My best days are ahead of me. " Nearly 17 years later, we're about to find out whether that's still true. As soon as the Kansas City Chiefs are done with the playoffs, Pederson, their offensive coordinator, will be announced as the 23rd head coach in Eagles franchise history. He will arrive as he did in '99, as something considerably less than the toast of the town, compared endlessly with higher-profile candidates many fans would have preferred.

WITH A NEW COACH comes roster upheaval. That's just a fact of NFL life. Take a good look at the Eagles' season-ending roster, because no matter who Jeff Lurie ends up hiring as his new head coach, it's going to change. A lot. In Chip Kelly's first season in 2013, he kept just 29 Andy Reid holdovers. By Week 1 of 2014, the number had shrunk to 22. Currently, there are just 12 Big Red survivors still calling the NovaCare Complex home. Since we don't yet know who the new coach is going to be, or what kind of offense or defense he's going to run, or whether Lurie's back-in-power football operations chief Howie Roseman believes the Eagles can be a playoff contender next season or need to rebuild, it's difficult to predict which players will be staying and which ones probably have played their last snap in midnight green.

AGAIN AND again we hear that the Eagles will make a significant hire to bolster their gutted front office. We hear that, for whatever reason, they will add a fertile football mind to supplement their top personnel pros, money man Howie Roseman and grizzled scout Tom Donahoe. Meanwhile, the Eagles conduct coaching interview after coaching interview: running backs coach Duce Staley; offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur; Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase; Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo; Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson; and, on Monday, former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

Les Bowen Welllll . . . NO. Not so much. Jeffrey Lurie has provided the best, most stable ownership the Eagles have ever had, which is sort of like winning the tallest jockey contest. This is a franchise that has been around since 1933, yet never had a real practice facility, or a stadium to call its own, until Lurie took over from the beloved Norman Braman and made those items a priority. Ownership is the main reason the Eagles only have three championships to show for their long NFL tenure, the most recent having occurred in 1960.

The Eagles interviewed New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo for their head coaching vacancy on Thursday. The team has confirmed four interviews - all of them with offensive-minded coaches. McAdoo was the second outside candidate. Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase met with Eagles brass - Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Don Smolenski - on Tuesday. Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was interviewed on Monday and Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley was interviewed last Friday.

N Les Bowen: Cast a wide net Of course not. O, OF COURSE not. That would seriously limit the pool of candidates, at a time when no one seems to think the Eagles' head-coaching opening is the most attractive situation on the market. What former NFL head coaches would be in the running for the Eagles' job, beyond Pat Shurmur, who already has been interviewed, and pie-in-the-sky targets John Harbaugh and Sean Payton? Looking to hire Tom Coughlin, are we? Harbaugh and the Ravens have said Harbaugh isn't leaving Baltimore.
