The Inquirer’s Jeff McLane asks a lot of pointed questions at Eagles press conferences.
He asks about injuries and the medical staff and tries to dig into areas that you would consider more “sensitive” than others.
To that end, he’s had some pseudo-contentious interactions with Doug Pederson this year, interactions that resulted in the head football coach rolling his eyes, giving brief non-answers, or just responding with relative disinterest.
Apparently that extends up the food chain as well, if today’s season-ending press conference is any indication. Howie Roseman was in front of reporters Tuesday and asked McLane to repeat a question after seeming to poke fun at the clothes he was wearing.
Look at Les Bowen and Tim McManus and Zack Rosenblatt laughing in the background. McLane also pulls a power move by waving off Reuben Frank in order to keep the microphone and ask a follow-up question.
Roseman (to Pederson): “He’s throwing me off with this.. there’s a lot…”
Pederson: “There’s a lot going on right here.”
Roseman: “Ummm… I’m sorry. One more time. “
I guess Howie and Doug were not fans of the fingerless gloves.
