Doug Pederson Responds to Josina Anderson’s Anonymous Source Report

Russ Joy - October 18, 2019

The Josina Anderson anonymous source struck twice this week, first with a reaction to the Eagles’ failure to acquire Jalen Ramsey, then again when it questioned the offense. Doug Pederson addressed the former on Wednesday and tackled the latter topic on Friday:

Nobody Was More Relieved On Thursday Night Than Doug Pederson

Russ Joy - September 27, 2019

It’s been about 24 hours since the Eagles took the field and reasserted themselves as a legitimate threat in the NFC with a 34-27 victory over the previously-undefeated Green Bay Packers. While no one was likely more relieved to make a game-winning interception than linebacker Nigel Bradham, who had earlier dropped a likely pick-six, it’s pretty clear that head coach Doug Pederson felt the pressure to avoid a potentially disastrous 1-3 start:

Pederson: Look, I have told you guys this before. One thing I love about you is the way you fight for sixty minutes and you hang in there for one another. When things don’t look pretty -and it’s never a pretty win- but it is a win. Listen, it took all sixty minutes, it took every man in this room to get this thing done. There is no quit in this team. It’s all about fight, it’s all about hanging together, about one play at a time. We talked about that stuff this week on a short week. I’m so proud of this group. And we needed this. Okay? We needed this for a lot of reasons. One… to get to 2-2. Let’s not kid ourselves. But, we’re 1-0 this week.

That’s our coach. He’s been a constant in the midst of what’s been an injury-riddled start to the season for his team. As usual, it’s clear that the guys in the locker room respect and rallied around their leader. The only downside? No Eagles game on Sunday. We’ll survive and, in just nine days, the Birds will thrive at home against the Jets.

The Eagles Were Open-Hand Slapped in the Face

Coggin Toboggan - November 19, 2018

When it can be argued that Alex Smith had a less painful weekend than the Philadelphia Eagles, you know things didn’t go to well for the Birds on Sunday afternoon.

We all knew it had the potential to be bad, but this bad? A 48-7 massacre of the Super Bowl winners was the worst defeat in the history of the NFL for a defending champion.

The Eagles weren’t so much punched in the mouth yesterday as they were open-hand slapped across the face. A punch would have been more dignified. A punch would have left this team snoring on the ground with their eyes rolled up into the back of their head, oblivious to the horrors around them.

The Saints did not allow them such mercy. The Saints reared back and slapped the Eagles across the face as hard as they could. They weren’t allowed the dignity of being knocked out, they were left to whimper and sob softly to themselves as snot and tears drained from their orifices, a sad slick of failure smeared into their stinging cheeks as they pathetically looked up at the Saints looming over them.

Angry Doug Pederson Is The Best Doug Pederson

Coggin Toboggan - September 5, 2018

Folksy Doug Pederson has left the building and he’s taken his homespun yarns with him. Angry Doug Pederson is here this year and he’s leaving a ravaged media corps(e) in his wake.

The media hates it. They hate Angry Doug, they hate his testiness and his unwillingness to answer question after question about the quarterback situation and when Carson Wentz will be cleared for contact or when he might start or exactly how big Nick Foles’s penis is (ANSWER THE QUESTION, DOUG) or what they should say to that girl they like to get her to notice them.

And Doug is having none of it. Gone are niceties. Forget bowls of ice cream this season, Doug Pederson is treating the media to big old bowls of SHUT THE HELL UP and making sure they down every last drop before they’re allowed to leave the big boy table.

Most fans absolutely love it to the utter BEWILDERMENT of the local media.

Doug has earned the love, and if he wants to be cranky, he gets to be cranky.

The Bud Light Eagles Statue is Nick Foles and Doug Pederson Calling the “Philly Special”

Kevin Kinkead - September 4, 2018

Looks like the Bud Light statue outside of Lincoln Financial Field does indeed appear to be Doug Pederson and Nick Foles deciding on the “Philly Special” play call during Super Bowl 52.

We did a short post a few minutes ago featuring a picture of the statue with a cover draped over it, but here’s an image of the statue sans veil below:

Looks like Pederson holding a play sheet. The crane is moving crusher Doug into position on the pedestal next to Foles.

Pretty gnarly, yeah? I assume this will only be up for Thursday night before eventually being moved, but I say we replace the Rocky statue at the Art Museum with this masterpiece instead.
