If the Eagles are able to hire Steve Spagnuolo as their defensive coordinator, which appears the safest and most likely course for Andy Reid and the organization, that move alone won't be the magic button to fix all the problems on that side of the ball. Getting Spagnuolo hired is no sure thing, either, despite the apparent logic of his return to Reid's staff. He threw out the idea that he might take a year off and regroup after being fired as St. Louis head coach, and there are also some other opportunities available, any of which might be more attractive.

When the Indianapolis Colts lured Ryan Grigson away from the Eagles to be their new general manager, it brought to mind the last time Grigson's name was uttered publicly in the NovaCare Complex. It was two years ago this month. In announcing the promotion of Howie Roseman to general manager of the Eagles, Andy Reid mentioned Grigson as one of the other candidates in the exhaustive, NovaCare-wide search process. Louis Riddick, who was also already on staff, was the other man Reid interviewed for the job everyone knew was being handed to Roseman.

IT HAS BEEN more than a week now since Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie told us Andy Reid would be back for a 14th season as the team's head coach. Since then, the question that continues to hold the most traction with the public is whether defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will be replaced and whether fired Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo will be the replacement. It makes sense - because Castillo was such an unconventional choice for the job, and because of all the fourth-quarter leads the team saw evaporate early in the season, and because Spagnuolo is so highly regarded following his work here and in New York as an assistant coach.

Despite an ambiguously written report that Steve Spagnuolo was "expected to be back in Philadelphia by the end of the week," the Eagles will not announce any coaching hires at least until Sunday. Reid, along with many of the Eagles coaching and front office staff, is away on vacation this week, according to a source close to the situation. That won't preclude the Eagles coach from working and making changes to his coaching staff, of course. Reid formulated his plan for restructuring his staff in the wake of defensive coordinator Sean McDermott's firing last year while vacationing on a Caribbean island.

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.

Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher is interviewing for the St. Louis Rams coaching job after previously meeting with the Miami Dolphins. The team said Thursday that initial interviews were taking place in Denver with owner Stan Kroenke , whose family also owns the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche. The Rams, who were 2-14 this season, also are looking for a new general manager to replace Billy Devaney . Unlike former Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo , who was fired Monday after going 10-38 over three seasons, Fisher offers the Rams plenty of head coaching experience.

There might not be another player in the NFL who has a better grasp of the Eagles' defensive-coordinator situation and how it relates to Steve Spagnuolo than former Eagle and current Ram Quintin Mikell. Mikell, a safety, played under Spagnuolo when the coach was a defensive assistant with the Eagles in the mid-2000s. Mikell then signed with St. Louis last year largely because the Rams head coach recruited him. Mikell said that he recently spoke with Spagnuolo, not long after he was fired by the Rams, about the speculation that the coach would return to the Eagles and replace Juan Castillo as the Birds' defensive coordinator.

One of the NFL's quaint traditions renewed itself as Black Monday became a reality in three cities. The St. Louis Rams fired Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney on Monday, and about an hour later the Tampa Bay Bucs fired Raheem Morris and his entire staff. Morris had a 17-31 mark in three seasons. Spagnuolo, a former Eagles assistant, left with a 10-38 record. Speculation immediately flared that Spagnuolo would rejoin the Eagles as defensive coordinator.

Once again, it's all about the wide nine. A year ago, when Andy Reid hired defensive line coach Jim Washburn and shockingly named Juan Castillo as his defensive coordinator, it was all about the wide nine. And when Reid sits down this week - presumably after the Eagles front office assured him that he will return as head coach - and evaluates his defensive coaching staff and whether changes need to be made, it will be all about the wide nine. Because if the Eagles are seriously interested in Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was fired Monday - and they should be - then they essentially have three courses of action from which to choose: 1. Hire Spagnuolo, keep Castillo, and fire Washburn.

Andy Reid didn't sound like a coach on his way out. Not that he's gone there. "I'll think about it," Reid said of his future, "when I want to think about it. " And following a 34-10 whipping of the Washington Redskins before a crowd that filled only three fourths of Lincoln Financial Field, Reid decided that now was not the time to think about it. But it's a question that has been asked with increasing furor since the Eagles...
