Baldinger: NFC East In State Of Transition

Posted Feb 13, 2014

NFL analyst Brian Baldinger sits down with Redskins.comTV's Larry Michael to discuss the rebuilding projects going on throughout the NFC East this offseason.

While the Washington Redskins have been largely focused on solving internal struggles this offseason, the rest of the division has also taken an introspective approach since the Philadelphia Eagles got bounced from the playoffs.

NFL analyst and former Dallas Cowboys' and Eagles' offensive lineman Brian Baldinger sat down with Redskins.comTV during the Super Bowl, outlining the offseason plans for each team.

"I mean, it’s nothing but change," Brian Baldinger said of the NFC East. "The Giants just changed their whole coaching staff. They’ve got to really reconstruct their whole offense, and that’s what they’re trying to do.

"In Dallas, change is just the norm. That continues. And all kinds of change in D.C. right now."

Baldinger spoke glowingly of that change in Washington, crediting general manager Bruce Allen with identifying a coach in Jay Gruden that can change the culture.

"Well, I don’t think he’s a guy that’s a big ego guy. I think he’s just a football guy. I mean the old cliché, he’s a ball coach," Baldinger said of Gruden.

"He went to the UFL, he’s talked football with his brother and his dad his whole life you know he’s been around the game his whole life, it’s what he knows.

"He played in the Arena League forever. He coached in the Arena League. I mean he just liked being a part of it. He’s had success, and now he’s getting his shot."

He specifically credited Gruden's ability to teach his gameplan as a major boon to the Redskins' offense in 2014.

"He has a lot of ideas and I think that he knows how to convey those ideas," Baldinger said. "I think when he stands up in front of the room, I think he’s going to get respect. And they need a change in Washington.

"When you have the drop off that they had last year, they needed a change."

One team in the division that went through beneficial change last season was the Philadelphia Eagles, where head coach Chip Kelly turned a team in disarray into a contender overnight.

"The one place that looks like it’s all on the up is in Philadelphia," Baldinger said. "This guy came in with a boatload of new ideas and news ways of doing things, and challenging the old ways, and it’s fresh. It’s fun to watch.

"So, to me, where Chip Kelly takes this in Year 2, to me he was the No. 1 story coming into the league this year. Can he elevate this thing?"

Only time will tell.
