07:52 AM ET 01.15 | After swinging and missing on a few occasions, the Eagles may finally have their man. The possibility that the Eagles' search for a head coach is near an end seemed to be growing Monday night when the Eagles confirmed a second interview Tuesday with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, this one presumably in Philadelphia. Many people around the league, including some players, believe Bradley will be the Eagles' choice to succeed Andy Reid. As far as we know, he would be the first candidate to meet with Eagles officials a second time. Bradley is 46 and has been with Seattle since 2009. He came to the NFL as a Tampa Bay assistant in 2006 after spending the bulk of his coaching career as an assistant at North Dakota State.

A young up-and-coming coach isn't a bad idea. And it would be interesting to see if he can build a defense in Philly. They haven't really had one since Jim Johnson.

Who bro ?

I'm thinking Fat Andy made out better than the Eagles did in this exchange.

Jim Johnson was their DC during that run of NFC Championship Games they made. He died back in '09, I think. His defense was always nasty.

I know a Redskins fan with an "In Gus We Trust" T-Shirt who would be happy to pawn it off to some deserving Iggles fan if this happens.

Very little wear...

Does that shirt come with a neck brace?

Nah, I was just being facetious about their no named candidate... Never heard of him.

The trust went downhill when Gus knocked himself out in a TD celebration.

Otis... @Private_Jenny.... You would want to follow her.

Checked her out... She seemed to be in some discomfort.

They might be waiting for the playoffs to end and pick someone who's still in the playoffs!!!!!

That is hilarious. Down here on the college level we just hired Gus Malzan as our new HC, and guess what our new T-shirts say?

And - you have to respect and root for someone that works this hard.

Iggles fans are on their own on that one, Mel...

I don't know ... What's best?
- being a defensive coach in a team who had it's first winning season in years with a young
talented defense?
- being a head coach in a team where you have to start from scratch?

Mmm ... I'd rather go for the first option

I'll take a wild guess and say the T-Shirts say "Who is Mazlan?"

January 15, 2013  03:09 PM ET

He's done a good job in Seattle and deserves consideration!

January 15, 2013  04:57 PM ET

Gus Frerotte?

I think they still feel that have a shot at Chip Kelly from Oregon
