Change isn’t coming. Well, at least not significant change up top. Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman are both expected to return in their roles. Frank Reich, Jim Schwartz and Dave Fipp could earn interviews for head coaching jobs around the league, but each coordinator will likely be back. Pederson will once again call plays next season, and he doesn’t anticipate much movement among his position coaches.

They haven’t won a playoff game since January 2009. They haven’t won a home playoff game since January 2007. 56 seasons have come and gone since the Eagles won their last championship in 1960.
