Impact of the Davis hire

Recently, there was a report that the Philadelphia Eagles were interested in Billy Davis as their next DC, despite mixed results in his previous employment with that title in other NFL cities; in the ensuing days, Davis' name faded from the discussion, as candidates from the 49ers and Ravens (along with Georgia DC Todd Grantham) took center stage. As of Thursday, though, it's Davis that's been tapped for the job, according to Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia.
