First off, good for Duce, glad he is getting an opportunity and honestly. He will end up being the Lions head coach in the next 3-5 years. Dan Campbell does not have staying power.
I know there are going to be a lot of angry Eagles fans but that’s just silly. Duce shouldn’t have been hired as the head coach and I’d go as far to say should have been removed with Doug. Duce was a great player and a fan favorite. I get that. He wasn’t this amazing coach that everyone wants to make him out to be. The same people screaming that Miles needed to get more touches and we aren’t running the ball enough are the ones claiming Duce needed to be the guy.
I get you’re not the head coach so there is only so much you can do but, if you think a guy os going to be a good head coach. You expect him to be a leader of men. If he can’t get good old gee wizzz Doug Pederson to do what he wants, he’s going to have a tough time getting 52 guys to. Once again, not saying he was bad, he wasn’t at all. But not ready to make some assumption that they missed out on some can’t miss prospect with Duce.
They missed out on Bieniemy, that is a can’t miss prospect. A part of me thinks he’s holding on to coach Mahomes when Andy leaves. But man, that guy needs a head coaching gig. He’s a monster.
So let’s all wish Duce well, hope he has great luck in Detroit. Thanks for everything, see ya later.
