Report: Marynowitz Emerges As ‘Serious Candidate’

Chip Kelly

Chip Kelly‘s search for a a new personnel executive is underway.

Ed Marynowitz has emerged as a “serious candidate”, according to Pro Football Talk. Marynowitz is currently the Eagles’ assistant director of player personnel.

Prior to joining the Eagles in 2012, he worked as the director of player personnel for the University of Alabama, playing a key role in the program’s recruiting efforts. He was a scouting assistant for the Dolphins before that, working alongside Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland.

The Media, Pa. native played quarterback for LaSalle University.

Marynowitz is considered one of the up-and-comers in the organization.

“Chip will not be doing this himself, obviously,” said Jeffrey Lurie, upon handing full personnel authority over to Kelly. “He has been charged with recruiting and hiring a new personnel executive that will report directly to him and together we will move forward with this new, highly-integrated approach.”

Birds 24/7 Is Looking For an Intern

Birds 24/7 is seeking an intern for the spring semester.

The candidate will help Sheil and Tim update the site, work on special projects and assist with social media. Motivated interns may have opportunities to produce original content, but this is not a writing internship.

The ideal candidate will be extremely detail-oriented and have experience in online journalism. Deep knowledge of the Eagles and the NFL is a must. Knowledge of SEO, web headline writing, Photoshop, WordPress and other content management systems, and professional use of social media is a plus, but not required.

The internship is unpaid. Candidates must be local to the Philadelphia area and currently enrolled full time in an undergraduate program, and are required to receive academic credit for the internship.

Please note that we require interns to put in a minimum of three days a week at our Center City office.

To apply, please e-mail a cover letter and resume to internship coordinator Tim Haas at thaas@phillymag.com, along with Sheil Kapadia (skapadia@phillymag.com) and Tim McManus (tmcmanus@phillymag.com).

Player I’ll Be Watching

Kapadia: Trent Cole

The long-time Eagle had some fun with reporters this week, saying he was unlikely to play vs. the Giants. But practice reports showed he was a full participant, and it looks like Cole will give it a go after undergoing hand surgery and missing last week’s game.

The 32-year-old has been one of the most productive Eagles draft picks in recent memory. The team selected him in the fifth round in 2005, and he’s started 144 games. Cole has never missed more than two games in a season and has totaled 85.5 sacks. Read more »

NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

Player I’ll Be Watching

Kapadia: Brandon Graham

T-Mac did a good job earlier this week of detailing Graham’s contract situation. The bottom line as I see it: The Eagles want him back, but Graham wants to find a role that fits and get paid what he thinks he’s worth, which is completely understandable.

A first-round pick in 2010, Graham is playing the best football of his career. He made the switch from 4-3 DE to 3-4 OLB and has come into his own this season. Graham has 5.5 sacks, 14 hurries, 13.5 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles. He is able to do all the things the coaches have asked of him: rush the passer, set the edge and drop into coverage. Additionally, Graham has become a valuable contributor on special teams. Read more »

Player I’ll be watching

Kapadia: Jason Kelce

The Eagles’ starting center returned from injury against the Texans, and it looked like the offense was on track to regain its identity as a run-first unit that used tempo to wear down opponents. LeSean McCoy ran for 117 yards in that game and averaged 4.9 YPC.
