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.

TCU Horned Frogs' Path to the 2022 College Football Playoff Semi-Finals

+

In the 2022 College Football Playoff semi-finals, the TCU Horned Frogs triumphed over the Michigan Wolverines in a thrilling 51-45 showdown, propelling the Big 12 champions to their inaugural national title game appearance in the CFP era.

However, this historic journey might not have been possible without the Ohio State Buckeyes' crucial assistance. According to Yahoo! Sports Reporter Ross Dellenger, the Buckeyes were among the select few teams that reached out to the Horned Frogs to alert them about Michigan's intricate sign-stealing tactics.

Prompted by Ohio State's warning, the Horned Frogs promptly altered their sideline signals, giving them the edge needed to outplay the Wolverines head-to-head.

Subsequently, in the national title game, the Horned Frogs crossed paths with Georgia, who narrowly bested the Buckeyes with a score of 42-41 in their semi-final clash. The Horned Frogs, however, faced a formidable challenge in Los Angeles and suffered a 65-7 defeat. NFR live

The Rise and Fall of a Promising Season

+

As the West Virginia football coaching staff and players prepared for their upcoming clash with new Big 12 team Central Florida on FS1, numerous questions plagued their minds. These inquiries included a fundamental one: how had their promising four-game winning streak, which had instilled confidence and revitalized the once-downtrodden program over the past four years, suddenly transformed into a disheartening two-game losing streak? This enigma was further compounded by the fact that the four-game winning streak, with the exception of a lopsided victory over Duquesne, had been achieved with a lackluster offensive performance, with backup quarterbacks taking the helm in nearly two of those contests. Clearly, the offense needed to undergo significant improvements. In the midst of these perplexing developments, West Virginia found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard, scoring a mere 73 points in those two losses, in stark contrast to their cumulative total of 76 points throughout the year against four Power 5 opponents. nfr rodeo live

"There's such a difference between high school cornerbacks and guys in college, in how physical they play and how good they are at getting their hands on you. He just didn't have any idea how to get off the line of scrimmage and has really worked hard over the summer on that. I think that's the biggest area of improvement." -Sonny Dykes
