Despite reports that he would be interviewed by the Cleveland Browns this week, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg appears to be out of the running for their vacant coaching position. Pat Shurmur, St. Louis' offensive coordinator and a former Eagles quarterbacks coach, has emerged as the leading candidate and could be close to a deal, according to various reports. As of Wednesday, the Eagles had yet to receive paperwork from teams seeking permission to interview their assistant coaches.

Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia say a man has pleaded guilty to sending threatening mail to New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin. Prosecutors say 30-year-old Herbert Alex Simpson of the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia pleaded guilty to two counts of mailing threatening communications. Simpson sent Coughlin letters threatening to expose a fictitious sexual tryst with two women. Court papers initially filed by prosecutors said the letters demanded the coach pay $20,000 to $30,000, but defense lawyer Nialena Caravasos notes that the charges of extortion were dropped.

The Washington Redskins moved quickly in their pursuit of Mike Shanahan yesterday, flying in the former Denver Broncos coach on the same day the team fired Jim Zorn. Shanahan and wife Peggy landed at Dulles International Airport near Redskins Park in midafternoon and were driven away in a limousine to meet with owner Dan Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen. Snyder planned for Shanahan to stay overnight at the owner's house in Maryland, and a formal hiring announcement could come as early as today.

The Buffalo Bills promoted defensive coordinator Perry Fewell to take over as interim head coach after Dick Jauron was fired yesterday. Bills owner Ralph Wilson ran out of patience with Jauron, who ran out of time to build a contender or come up with a way to fix an offense that sputtered even with the addition of Terrell Owens. Fewell, who has never been a head coach at any level, was asked about his coaching philosophy. "Play like hell and win," he said. The shakeup, which caught some players by surprise, came during the players' day off and after the Bills (3-6)

Add New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer to the list of candidates in the Buffalo Bills' search for a new head coach. The Bills have asked the Jets for permission to interview Schottenheimer, a person told the Associated Press yesterday. It's unclear when the interview might take place, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not revealed their list of candidates to replace Dick Jauron, who was fired in November. The son of former NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer, Brian Schottenheimer is in his fourth season as the Jets coordinator.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The feeling of euphoria and invincibility the New York Giants had after beating New England 2 weeks ago is gone. Long gone. It's been replaced by disappointment, anger and frustration in the wake of consecutive losses to San Francisco and the Eagles that has wiped out their two-game lead in the NFC East. The slump has left many wondering whether the Giants (6-4) are heading for another second-half swoon. The loss on the road to the Niners (9-1)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It seemed perhaps the expected Eagles' defensive shakeup was beginning, when the Eagles confirmed a Saturday CBSsports.com report that they had fired secondary coach Johnnie Lynn. But if bigger moves are going to be announced in the next day or 2, they're seemingly going to occur without the Eagles adding former Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo to the mix. St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bryan Burwell interviewed Spagnuolo for yesterday's editions, and Spagnuolo told Burwell he was leaving Saturday for a 4-day getaway with his wife, Marie, as he decides what he wants to do next.

Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw is learning that Matt Rhule is a pretty popular coach. "It was impressive to see - not just current players, former players - but on campus, people from housing, people from admissions, people in [academic] departments who were pulling for him," said Bradshaw, who introduced Rhule Monday as the Owls' new coach. "I would walk around and kind of half-kiddingly say, 'Who should we hire?' . . . I can't tell you how many times Matt's name came up. " As an Owls assistant in 2010, Rhule interviewed for the job when Al Golden left for Miami.

College or pro? Offense or defense? An up-and-coming assistant or a been-there-done-that guy with a Super Bowl ring? Those are the questions facing Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman as they consider potential replacements for coach Andy Reid, who is expected to be dismissed later this month as soon as this season comes to a merciful end. I spoke with two NFL front-office executives this week who have been involved with previous...

February 3, 2012 | Giants-Patriots scouting report BY ZACH PERMAN, BY1] bermanz@phillynews.com bermanz@phillynews.com
GIANTS OFFENSE VS. PATRIOTS DEFENSE The Giants' offense will try to take advantage of New England's secondary, which has reached the Super Bowl despite a patchwork group that includes wide receiver Julian Edelman playing cornerback. Unlike past Giants teams - including the one that beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl 4 years ago - this year's group does not effectively run the ball. Instead, the team's strength is a deep wide-receivers corps that proves problematic for depleted secondaries.

INDIANAPOLIS - All around the league, head coaches and offensive coordinators are looking at the Patriots' prolific two-tight end offense, rubbing their chin whiskers and saying, "Hmmm. " As in, "Hmmm, maybe we should give that a try. " The NFL is a copycat league. Original thinking went on hiatus somewhere around the disco era. When one team stumbles upon a successful idea, 10 others soon are trying it on for size. When Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are combining for 169 receptions, 2,237 yards and 24 touchdowns and helping the Patriots get to the Super Bowl for the fifth time in the last 11 years, 10 other teams are telling their scouts to go find the next Gronkowski and Hernandez.

INDIANAPOLIS - You may have been one of the nearly one million on YouTube to watch Jason Pierre-Paul do 13 backflips in a row when he was at South Florida. If you did, you probably had the same reaction as the New York Giants, who were looking to upgrade the defensive end position two years ago. "We saw 6-foot-4, 288 pounds that could stand up and do a backflip, and we went, 'Wow,' " Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell recalled this week. But that kind of wow doesn't always translate into an NFL wow , and it is one of the reasons Pierre-Paul slipped past 14 teams - including the Eagles - in the first round of the 2010 draft.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Perry Fewell navigated through the hallways of the Giants' practice facility, past tributes of the organization's finest moments, to the media room on the far side of the building. Fewell was angry. It was the first Thursday in December, 3 days after the Giants' defense allowed 49 points and 577 total yards in a loss to the Saints on national television. The Giants' defensive coordinator had not yet publicly discussed the outing. In his first encounter with cameras, Fewell shared his outrage.

The Eagles haven't made a change at defensive coordinator - at least not yet - but they may need to find a new offensive coordinator. Marty Mornhinweg will interview with the Oakland Raiders for their head coach vacancy this week, NFL sources said Tuesday. The Eagles offensive coordinator isn't believed to be a leading candidate in Oakland, but with six names already linked to the job and the opening still unfilled after a week, it could be for the taking. Mornhinweg could also be in contention for the top Colts job after Jim Caldwell was fired Tuesday.

TALKED TO someone close to Steve Spagnuolo yesterday. This person said Spagnuolo is going to take his time with his decision on what comes next, that he wants to "see what develops. " Meanwhile, Eagles coach Andy Reid was scheduled to return from vacation last night. The team's offices are closed today for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. So Reid's long-awaited season recap news conference, which presumably will let us know whether Juan Castillo will return as defensive coordinator, won't happen before tomorrow, at the earliest.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - There was much debate about how real the Eagles' defensive improvement was the last month of the season, and whether it meant the Birds could have been a competitive playoff team. We'll never know. But if the question is, "Can you have a bad defense most of the season, come together late, and dominate to win a game in the postseason?" - well, the answer there yesterday at MetLife Stadium was "yes. " The Giants came into their Wild Card Weekend matchup with the visiting Atlanta Falcons having closed the books on the regular season ranked 29th in NFL pass defense, 27th in overall defense, 22nd in points allowed.
