The Eagles did not want to do Amazon’s All or Nothing series. They had no choice.

The NFL selected them as the subject of the season-long series produced by NFL Films, Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eagles confirmed it to Domowitch.

“There has to be somebody on the show,’’ Eagles president Don Smolenski said. “And if there are no volunteers. Then the league makes a selection.

“There’s a certain criteria – I don’t remember all of the criteria – for those teams that cannot be chosen. And if you don’t fit that criteria, your name goes into a bucket with a group of other teams, and the league picks from the bucket.’’

The Eagles are the fifth NFL team to do All Or Nothing. The other four were the 2018 Panthers, the 2017 Cowboys, the 2016 Rams and the 2015 Cardinals.

This is the first time the all-access show subject was revealed before the end of the season.

NFL Films cameras are in the locker room, on the sidelines and off the field, giving viewers a look behind the curtain of an NFL franchise’s complete season.

After the Panthers’ eight-episode premiere last summer, coach Ron Rivera said he had no interest in doing another reality show.

  1. I have no idea why these coaches and organization are always whining about doing shows like this.

    The reason they do these shows is to give fans more insight to the game and in turn, fans spend more money on football. When fans spend more money on football, salaries grow. Sports is one of the few professions in America were salaries over the last 20 years has actually grown. This is happening as more people are voicing displeasure with the product on the field. So, to coaches, players and owners who whine about this, suck it up.

    C’mon man! If doing these shows was so popular among coaches, they would be clamoring to be on TV. I love behind the scenes footage. What works for the fans doesn’t necessarily work for the teams the same way
