I dont see any circumstance where Mike is here for the 2015 season. So if we lose kyle, we lose our succession plan, continuity, and could be starting from scratch again in 2015.
It's possible but not likely. He's got potentially two great offers. One as HC. One as Assistant HC. Depending on how some things shake out.

Kyle isn't necessarily the heir apparent here anyway.

If things happen as I expect they might, they won't be starting from scratch

I do. I've never like 3-4 defense. Yes, we have gotten more turnovers but we also give up a lot more yards and points. Think about his going into next year in a 4-3 defense - Rak & Kerrrigan on the ends/Carreker(could also be used a a DT) - bowen/Jenkins/cofield/Nield as the DT, riley/fletcher mlb, wilson/jackson/Alexander (or move him back to DT) or FA as the olb's, DB - FA, Wilson,Hall,Crawford, S- need major upgrades here. The point hat I'm trying to make is that we would not have to have a major overhall of players to go back to the 4-3. Our defense has sucked since going to the 3-4.

As much as I like Kyle, I simply think he's too young at this stage for a HC job. I have no doubt about his abilities, but will players respect a guy who might be the same age or even younger than some of the guys he's coaching.

The players already do respect him. He really earned their respect when he took the high road against McNabb's abuse the summer of 2010

But that's neither here nor there. If the team that may want to hire him as HC actually does it will be very exciting to see. If the team that he wants to go to hires him to be the assistant HC, it will be very curious to see

And why doesn't he want to wait 1-2 more years and be the HC here?

Other than the eagles, I don't foresee any "attractive" HC openings. Why not wait 1-2 years to be HC here. If he's not heir apparent then who is? There's no one else on this staff worthy of being higher than they already are.

Id "fire" mike in a heartbeat if it meant keeping Kyle. Rg3 has benefitted for having a bright young OC like Kyle. With anyone else I see him taking a step back.

Maybe he will wait. But if the right offer is there now, he may not want to

I just can't see any situations for him where he'd be working with a talent like RG3. He can do things with rg3 he won't be able to do with any other quarterback. If he leaves and goes somewhere else, I'd view it as an indictment on the organization and a sign that we haven't moved on from the snyderatto stench as much as we believe.

That's quite a ridiculous leap to make
