Surely they can't be this dumb (yet I hope they are):
The general consensus of the philly fans in the comments was along the lines of "Dear God No!". Sounds like just the right man for the job

I think Jim Mora is a fine DC.
Bad head coach though.

I guess it depends on how you define fine.
His only stint as DC was 1999-2003 in San Francisco.
Year Pts Yds
1999 30 28
2000 28 29
2001 9 13
2002 18 14
2003 21 13
He had the one nice year but then regressed. Obviously that's a simplification but I've just never seen any indication that he's even above average. Those numbers really don't do much for me. And I wasn't too impressed overall with our defense when he was the head coach. His best year was 2004 where we were ranked 14th in yards and 14th in points. It only got worse from there.

Him and Vick could talk about old times.. He's a crap coach

They could then trade for Deangelo Hall, bring in Jimmy Williams, it would really be like old times.

Eagles fans HATE Jim Mora from his days here. They also hated Michael Vick. ...as soon as he's hired, they always liked him.

I believe Mora would work in philly. He's a motivator, he believes in a fast violent defense, and he has talent there. Plus Greg Knap cant follow him to get him fired
