Report: Eagles players felt Sean Desai didn't carry himself with confidence


The Eagles will have a new defensive play caller in Seattle on Monday night. Senior defensive assistant Matt Patricia will be serving in that role while on the sideline with head coach Nick Sirianni. Defensive coordinator Sean Desai remains on the coaching staff and will be in the booth during Monday's game. Desai was hired this offseason after Jonathan Gannon left to become the Cardinals head coach. The Eagles have done well against the run this season and they have a 10-3 record, but rank 28th in points allowed and 23rd in yards allowed while playing for a coach that, per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, has not gotten players to fully buy into what he's trying to do.
