The bar has been set fairly high for what a horrible coach is in Philadelphia.
All you have to do is make it to the playoffs two out of three years, including winning the division once, have a winning record, which is also the best record in the NFC East during that time period, crush the defending champions and restock your team with players who outperform the players you sent packing, and you will get shown the door yourself.
Does Pederson stand any chance of lasting more than a year in what has become a fanbase ruled team?
Sure the former coach did things his own way… But isn’t that what all the great ones do?
“Nice guys finish last.”
Do you think Vince Lombardi cared about what other people thought about him?
Does Bill Belicheck have trouble sleeping at night because of his reputation?
Eagles fans have made it extremely clear that they want a Super Bowl victory now, but they don’t want anyone doing anything that it takes to get there.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
So what was the Eagles answer to the “problem?”
Hire a disciple of the nice guy who failed to bring you a Super Bowl for nearly a decade and a half, and hope he brings a different result.
I don’t envy Pederson’s position at all, but as long as he stocks the team with overpaid, high profile players, fails to be successful, keeps smiling and submits to every wish of the fans.
He should enjoy a long happy career in the “City of Brotherly Love.”
