Before anyone starts drumming up speculation: Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau isn't coming to Philadelphia.

"If I'm in the state of Pennsylvania, I'm going to be in Pittsburgh," LeBeau told the Inquirer when asked about his future and the Eagles defensive coordinator position after Sunday night's win over the Jets.

LeBeau's contract expires after this season, according to ESPN, stoking the hopes of some fans of teams looking for a defensive coordinator. The ESPN report mentions Arizona as a potential landing spot for the venerable coordinator. He was probably not a very realistic target for the Eagles, and there were no indications that the Birds planned to go after him, but that wouldn't have stopped rumors or speculation. His comments, though, seem to indicate that this is one idea, however fanciful, that can be put aside.
