Doug Pederson and Jim Schwartz Experience The Philly Media

Welcome, gentlemen.

This quote from Jim Schwartz sums it up. Doug Pederson, “communicator,” wasn’t more than two minutes removed from aw-guffa-HEE-HAW-ing his way through a prepared statement before he was being lightly roasted over an open flame about playcalling at the end of the Chiefs-Patriots game, when the Chiefs bled more than five minutes off the clock while trailing by 14 because, according to Reid-Pederson, they didn’t want to give Tom Brady a chance for a game-winning drive. Never mind that the strategy never gave the Chiefs a chance for a game-tying one.

Pederson admitted to calling the plays, as he has done in the second half of all games in the second half of the season (this almost makes me like him better, as the Chiefs won 11 straight since Pederson was given a real working headset). He explained that the dopey thinking behind draining the clock was so that if they scored and were able to get the ball back on an onside kick (they didn’t), and score again (they didn’t), then Tom Brady wouldn’t have been given a chance to win the game… which he was already winning by 14. It’ll make your head hurt (and now I don’t like him again). But, Doug at least answered the question like a man.

Enter DeCamara.

We’ve seen this move from Joe DeCamara before— lurking in the wings like a modern day Quint, interrupting the huddled masses and cutting right to the chase:

“Doug, back here, on the side. While Andy has obviously had some very strong success in the league, the concept of clock management has been an issue for many years – and certainly we saw it here in Philadelphia, totally aside from what we saw this weekend – what is it about his approach offensively… to pretty consistent issues with clock management… what can you as the heach coach do to prevent that from happening in the future?”

Boom. I’ll find him for three. But I’ll catch him, and kill him, for 10.

Once again, Joe addresses the issue at hand: What will we see differently from Pederson in that regard?

Pederson gave the best answer he could: practice reps. But what he’ll do in those situations remains to be seen… or, we can just watch the last six minutes of the Chiefs-Patriots game.

Side note: Here’s DeCamara from a July 2012 press conference with Reid in which he cut through the noise and basically asked Andy why he was such an asshole:

Look at him just lurking like a motherfucker. He doesn’t ask many questions, but when he does, the room takes notice. The coach takes notice.

Side note 3:

We can. And yes, I, too, thought that was weird. If the Eagles were image conscious – THEY ARE! – one might have pulled Lurie aside before the presser and said something to the effect of: “Hey, Jeff. They already think you hired a lapdog. At least let him wear his own clothes.” Nope. We got:

Or, my take: Marco Rubio during his water freakout, because Doug was getting all cotton-mouthy up there:

Gonna be a fun season!

    “lurking in the wings like a modern day Quint, interrupting the huddled masses and cutting right to the chase:”

    “Cutting right to the chase?” Those words have never and should never be used to describe anything that ever come out of Joe Decamara’s mouth. The dude constantly uses 500 words when 25 will suffice to get his point across.

    He is the fucking twin brother of Tom Burgoyne, the Phanatic’s best friend.

    If I was better with computers, this is where I would find a gif that shows a person saying “Ohhhh SSSHHHHIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTT”. Doug Pederson, pronounced Ped-R-Son, like Toys-R-Us, is going to get eaten alive in this market. The media, bloggers (Kyle, not Jim), commenters, commenters’ moms, every fucking idiot that gets through to Innes (Can I have ‘the racist’ for $800 Trebeck?), etc will eat this nice-guy alive. Going to be great for Kyle though, the college fund is going to pay for itself courtesy of Nice-Guy Doug!

    Look at all those loser sports journalists! Covering a perpetual loser franchise for a bunch of drunk ingrate, knuckle-dragging, in-bred racist fans. Oooooh, you burned Andy Reid by asking a stupid question to Doug Pederson! Go back to planning your crappy monologues that every changes the station on. I’m not sure who is worst, the fanboy loser Media who feel so self-important asking these stupid questions, or the imbecile fans in this town. Howard Eskin looks like the midget circus leader leading a brigade of retard clown mummers. Reuben Frank is a Shrek look-a-like dragging up the rear of the doofus parade.

    Why is nobody seeing the obvious explanation for the KC end-of-game clock management? Doug could not be named Eagles coach until the Chiefs’ season was done.

    Where was super media man Jonny Tannenwald? He should have been live blogging, live tweeting, streaming, camming, periscoping, and snapchatting

    I had never seen that Joe Decamara/Andy Reid exchange in 2012 before. The second question and answer was most enlightening to me and might explain more than anything why Chip failed here.
