Eagles | Mornhinweg update
Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has not stated if he would remain on the field or if he will move to the press box. Mornhinweg said, "When you are on the field, you have more control. You can look at the players eyeball-to-eyeball, and that is a big positive down there. Upstairs, there is no question you can see better. (But) you lose some of the face-to-face contact that you have with the players and a bit of the motion and the feeling, which occasionally is important." Mornhinweg also discussed his offensive philosophy, saying, "Whatever it takes to win that particular game we are going to do, and certainly you need to run the football in a physical manner in certain situations. RB Brian Westbrook is such a great running back, and we do need to get the football to him." Mornhinweg has seen success as an offensive coordinator before when he was with the San Francisco 49ers from 1997 to 2000. The team finished below sixth in scoring only once under Mornhinweg's watch. His 1998 team was the first since the 1941 Chicago Bears to lead the league in rushing and passing yards.
