Eric Bieniemy ’s Chiefs just put up 51 points in a playoff game. Why isn’t he a head coach yet? Bieniemy has one of the most impressive offensive coaching resumes in the league , and he has “That’s what I’d tell you. I don’t want to lose him , but if you’re asking me if he ’s ready to be a head

Eric Bieniemy hasn’t gotten a head coaching gig. How is that?

Before the 2020 season began, five NFL teams hired new head coaches: Matt Rhule of the Carolina Panthers, Ron Rivera of the Washington Football Team, Joe Judge of the New York Giants, Kevin Stefanski of the Cleveland Browns, and Mike McCarthy of the Dallas Cowboys. One coach who was not hired as a head coach in the 2020 offseason was Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, despite the fact that the Chiefs won their first Super Bowl in 50 years, and head coach Andy Reid told anybody who would listen (and apparently, a lot of people who wouldn’t) that Eric Bieniemy was ready for that responsibility.

Bucs DT Vita Vea out for season with broken ankle

  Bucs DT Vita Vea out for season with broken ankle The 2018 first-round selection missed three games due to injury during his rookie campaign, but he rebounded to play in (and start) all 16 of the Bucs’ contests last year. Tampa has fielded one of the strongest run defenses in the league in 2020, and Vea is a big reason for the club’s success in that regard. He also showed improved chops at getting to the quarterback, as he posted two sacks in his four-plus games this season (including one Thursday night before the ankle injury).Contractually, it’s an especially unfortunate blow.

All the NFL head coaching vacancies have been filled, but Eric Bieniemy faces one final audition to prove he is worthy of an opportunity to be a head coach this league .

Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy , who has interviewed for head - coaching jobs over the past two seasons, said it's not his place to AVENTURA, Fla. - - Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said he 's not disappointed that he hasn't received an NFL head - coaching offer despite interviewing

Eric Bieniemy et al. wearing costumes: Every offensive coordinator for Andy Reid in Kansas City, where Reid has been since 2013, either is or has been a head coach in the NFL, and two current head coaches (Doug Pederson, Matt Nagy) got their jobs based directly on their experiences in one of the NFL's most complex and high-powered offenses. But Bieniemy, who has held the OC job with the Chiefs for the last two seasons -- seasons in which Patrick Mahomes won the NFL MVP award and was named Super Bowo MVP the year after -- seems to be running into issues when it's time to talk with teams about head coaching prospects.  One can only wonder why. It certainly isn't due to a lack of enthusiasm regarding his abilities on Reid's part.  “You guys know how I feel about Eric,” Reid told reporters at the end of 2019. “I think he would be tremendous. I don’t know the team, but there is a team out there that could really use him. Being the leader of men that he is, you’re not going to find people better than that in that category. He’s a sharp offensive mind on top of that.  “I’m a big fan. Don’t want to lose him, but reality is that there is a good chance that happens.”  Bieniemy, will be back for the 2020 season, and if the Chiefs are able to do on offense what they've done in the last two seasons, perhaps he'll be seen as more than Reid's sidekick. © Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Every offensive coordinator for Andy Reid in Kansas City, where Reid has been since 2013, either is or has been a head coach in the NFL, and two current head coaches (Doug Pederson, Matt Nagy) got their jobs based directly on their experiences in one of the NFL's most complex and high-powered offenses.

NFL betting 2020: Knowing how to adjust lines when each starting QB is ruled out during the season

  NFL betting 2020: Knowing how to adjust lines when each starting QB is ruled out during the season It's less about which quarterbacks are the best in the league and more about their backupsSep 23, 2018; Kansas City, MO, USA; San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10) is taken off the field after an injury in the second half against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

I explain why the New York Giants should hire Eric Bieniemy as their head coach .

Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has become the example of the Rooney Rule gone wrong. Only three of the 32 NFL head coaches are black, and the league is seeking ways to bring more His response to this is good enough to be a head coach . Not sure why GM’s weren’t banging

“This guy is a phenomenal coach is what they’re looking at,” Reid said. “And I think [all Chiefs players] would all stand on the table for him. … They’d all stand up and tell you what he’s all about. He’s a leader of men. And they all know he’s going to shoot you straight — honest, honest, honest. And then they also know and respect his mind. I give him, every weekend, I sit down, we put together this game plan sheet with 200-plus plays on it and he memorizes every play, every formation, just — boom — on recall like that. And every week, I go, ‘Listen, are you good with this?’ And he goes, ‘No problem. I’ve got it.’ But a lot of hard work goes into it. Plus, he’s a brilliant dude.”

Patrick Mahomes, the most prominent player in Bieniemy’s charge, had no trouble endorsing his coach as his team prepared for their journey to the Super Bowl.

“When you get a guy like EB, who puts in the time, who is a great leader of players and men and somebody that can really control and have a presence in any room he walks in, you understand why these other teams are looking at him to be their head coach. And so we obviously are focused on our goal right now, but we know, with who he is and how he operates, that he’ll have the opportunities to go places and continue to have success.”

NFL considering postseason bubble

  NFL considering postseason bubble If something like the Titans’ situation happened in the playoffs, with dozens of COVID-19 cases, it’s hard to imagine a sensible way to work around it. Jones and Kaplan also make it seem like a Week 18 is inevitable at this point, with some games being pushed into early January. Once teams have already had their bye weeks it will be nearly impossible to move things around like the NFL did this past week, and one source said it’s a matter of when, not if, there becomes a Week 18.

It may make sense for Colorado, which suddenly has a head - coaching vacancy, to want to hire Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy . So why leave for a mid-level college program now when he could be leaving for an NFL program soon? This doesn’t mean Bieniemy should pounce on the first

As word of each NFL head - coaching hire landed this week, a sprawling network of black coaches But Eric Bieniemy doesn’t, and he followed the same path,” Redskins assistant coach Ray Horton told The We all should be . You have to be conscious of diversity. You want teachers the mentees can

We don’t know why nobody wanted Bieniemy (though we can certainly speculate), but Bieniemy and Reid have upped their offensive game plans this season with a great new wrinkle. Opposing teams are playing a ton of two-high safety coverage to try and keep Mahomes in check, and when the Chiefs see that, and they know the defense is one lighter in the box, they’re going to run the ball over and over. That’s what they did in their season-opening 34-20 win over the Texans (34 carries for 166 yards and a touchdown), and what they did in their 26-17 Week 6 win over the Bills that could easily be an AFC Championship game preview (46 carries for 245 yards and a touchdown). It’s a long way from the imagined narrative of the Chiefs’ offense that has Mahomes throwing 500-burgers on every defense he faces, but as Bieniemy said this week, you do whatever it takes to win. And you switch it up when you need to. Bill Belichick gets a lot of well-deserved credit for that.

“Sometimes, professional sports have a tendency to think it’s all about the numbers and the egos,” he said. “Sometimes, I think people forget that we play a team game. This is what has made us special. Our guys are going to do whatever it needed to go out and win. Because when it’s all said and done, and we talk about this each and every week, it’s not about the numbers. It’s about the alphabet. And the only [letters in the alphabet] that matter in this industry are the ‘W’ and the ‘L.’

Five teams that should be buyers at NFL trade deadline

  Five teams that should be buyers at NFL trade deadline As we look across the league, plenty of teams will have an opportunity to be buyers in the next few weeks. © Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Will New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick make some moves at the NFL trade deadline? While the COVID-19 pandemic creates a new hurdle for organizations to overcome before the trade deadline, it shouldn’t stop aggressive general managers from making deals. With the NFL Playoffs expanded this season, even more teams should be active before the Nov. 3 trade deadline.

Eric Bieniemy , Offensive Coordinator, Kansas City Chiefs. If NFL teams go back to hiring defensive-minded head coaches , his name should be near the top of the list. Kevin O'Connell was an NFL draft prospect not that long ago as a third-rounder from San Diego State drafted by the New England

“ He ’s met close to 25 people in front-office positions in the last year that he has a connection with. Where else are you getting that exposure?” The “Standard” is who the owner thinks is going to be a leader to run the business. Bieniemy might be hurt a little because he works for a Head Coach who’s

“Whatever we have to do to get that “W,” that’s all that matters. And then, you know what? We’re going to come back and put a game plan together for the following week, and we’re going to get it going, and get ready to go. Yes — ideally, we want all of our players to have all of the success that they can. But we do know this: If we can do this together, and do it for one another, and do it the right way, it’ll give us a chance to have a chance to pursue the goals we want to pursue.”

Another thing to point out. When Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce fumbled near the end of the first half against the Bills and the Bills took over, Kelce was furious with himself. Who took Kelce aside right after the play and told him to not let the mistake overwhelm him?

Teams missed the boat when it came to Bieniemy this year. We don’t know what it will take for him to become the latest former Reid offensive coordinator to land a well-deserved head coaching opportunity (Matt Nagy in Chicago and Doug Pederson in Philadelphia were the last two), but all Bieniemy does is to continue to prove that when he does get the job, he’ll do his best to out-perform a lot of guys who have those positions now.

Justin Turner tests positive for COVID-19, removed from Game 6

  Justin Turner tests positive for COVID-19, removed from Game 6 Justin Turner was pulled from Game 6 of the World Series after seven innings on Tuesday night, and the world found out the shocking reason why: Turner tested positive for COVID-19. © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Turner started and began the game for the Los Angeles Dodgers as the No. 3 hitter and third baseman. But he was pulled before the start of the eighth, with Enrique Hernandez going to second, Chris Taylor moving to left, and Edwin Rios playing third.There was no explanation for why Turner was removed until after the Dodgers won the World Series 3-1.

As for me, I’ll just leave it here.
