After more than 83 coaches turned down the Eagles’ vacant defensive coordinator position in the past seven days, the team was reportedly “like, this close” to tricking Jim Mora into taking the job, according to one team source.

“Oooh-ho-ho! You almost got me, you sneaky sons of bitches! Oh, that was good times. Good times,” Mora reportedly said after he realized he nearly became the new Eagles defensive coordinator. “Oh God, was this filmed? Please tell me you got this on tape. I wanna see my face when I found out you guys weren’t really the Ravens. I bet I was all like ‘Aww, man!’ and stuff, right?”

The Eagles are expected to trick five more candidates into taking the job this week, including a second attempt at Mora.
