1. Nick Sirianni
When the Eagles fired Doug Pederson after the 2020 season it might have been the right move, but replacing a Super Bowl winning head coach is not easy. Fortunately, Nick Sirianni has proven he is up to the challenge. He broke into the NFL as an assistant in Kansas City before working his way up to offensive coordinator of the Colts in 2018. After 2020, Philadelphia hired him as their new head coach.
Sirianni's first year as a head coach was up and down. After fully moving on from Carson Wentz, he was assigned to take Jalen Hurts to the next level. In each of his first two seasons, Hurts has arguably been the best quarterback in the division. After going 9-8 and losing in the playoffs to Tampa Bay, the Eagles took major steps last season.
They finished 14-3, giving them the NFC East title and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. After two dominant postseason wins, the team made it to Super Bowl LVII. Looking for their second championship, Philadelphia lost on a last-second field goal to the Chiefs. The loss was brutal, but Sirianni's turnaround got the league's attention.
While the Eagles lost key pieces this offseason due to the salary cap, expectations are still sky high. Hurts had an MVP type season and most expect more of the same in 2023. The question becomes: how does Sirianni respond defending the conference title with a worse roster? If any coach in this division can weather this storm it would be him. This leaves no doubt about Sirianni being at the top of this ranking.
