It's been several days since the Eagles fired McDermott. And this is only a conjecture. But certainly the Eagles would be interested in Rob Ryan for their DC job, and the longer this thing goes without an official announcement begins to give me pause.
Has the "sure thing" turned otherwise? At some point over the weekend, did Philly call Ryan and has he put the brakes on now that he has another viable opportunity? Did Philly complicate the contract negotiation?
