Introduction Of The New Doug Pederson

Yesterday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson seemed to be bothered by questions about his number one slot receiver Jordan Matthews and his battle with tendonitis.  Pederson wouldn’t admit that Matthews is injured despite the fact that everybody knows that he was sidelined for much of the offseason and is still currently out of action because […]

Concerns About Doug Pederson

At the beginning of this season, I went into the 2016 campaign with a mindset that I was going to be as patient as possible with new head coach Doug Pederson.
I expected a fair amount of rough moments, bumps and bruises as the first-time head coach feels his way through the league and gets a […]

Former Eagles Head Coach Buddy Ryan Dies At 85

I was at Dick Vermeil’s Golf Tournament last week and Jim Solano, who was my agent during the last five or six years of my NFL career, showed me a picture of Buddy with Seth Joyner and Clyde Simmons.  The picture had been taken a couple of weeks ago and I could see that Buddy […]

Chip Kelly Gives Us His Side Of The Story

Former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly talked to the media yesterday at the NFL Owners meetings in Boca Roton, Florida.  Some of the comments he made were amazing because it shined a light on the dysfunction, which took place in the Birds front office after team Vice President Howie Roseman fired Kelly’s friend and confidante […]

Can You Believe What Chip Offered For Marcus Mariota?

We all know that deep down former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly wanted his former Oregon Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota in the worse way, the astonishing report of what he offered the Tennessee Titans to get him is breath-taking.
According to FOX Sports NFL Insider Peter Shrager, Kelly was willing to give the Titans the […]

Doug Pederson Has A Good Chance To Succeed

I’ve heard Eagles fans express anger at the way Doug Pederson was hired. It’s understandable, but I don’t think we should get negative about Pederson before we know what kind of coach, he’s going to be. In the more than 30 years I’ve been working in and around the NFL, I’ve seen candidates that everybody […]

What To Expect From Doug Pederson

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, if Jeffrey Lurie were able to hire Andy Reid again, he would do it, but that wasn’t an option.  The Eagles owner is eager to return to the stability of the Reid years.
Peterson knows Reid’s organizational structure, which helped the Eagles make the playoffs in […]

So What, Doug Pederson Wasn’t Their First Option

From what I can decipher, the Eagles decision to hire Doug Pederson was made because they missed out on former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, when he signed with the Miami Dolphins.  Later on, New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was promoted to head coach by the Giants, so he was off the […]

Lurie Hoping That Doug Pederson Is Andy Reid 2.0

As a die-hard Eagles fan, you may look back at Andy Reid’s run as the Birds head coach and think about nothing, but all those heart-aching losses in the NFC Championship games and that disappointing 24-21 loss to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
You may have been bothered by Reid’s news conference and […]

Sean McDermott Could Build A Great Eagles Defense

The Eagles should make Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott their next head coach.  There might be other guys out there who can do the job on the defensive side of the ball, but over the last four years McDermott has been the best defensive coordinator in the NFL.
The Eagles have enough good players on […]
