Well, at least the Eagles know that Nate Sudfeld won't be the backup QB in Philly next year.
It was reported yesterday that Doug Pederson was going to meet with owner Jeffery Lurie to discuss future plans. I guess the meeting didn't go too well.
Reports say that Pederson and Lurie didn't meet eye to eye when discussing future plans.
Pederson wanted to keep some of his guys. Lurie wanted to bring in new people outside the Eagles building, according to other reports. The bottom line is it seemed like Pederson didn't want to stay in Philly if he didn't have a say in his staff. It will be interesting to see what happens to Howie Rosman, considering his fingerprints are all over the roster.
So maybe the reports about him losing the locker room after their week 17 debacle were true. Miles Sanders went on the radio discussing his displeasure of benching Hurts for Sudfeld. Apparently, multiple Eagles had to be held back on the sidelines because they weren't happy about the decision. Whether it's true or not, it appears a fresh start might have been the best move.
Is the Eagles head coaching job the most unattractive in the league? Cap space hell, major questions at the QB position, and a battered locker room. Whoever becomes the head coach in Philly has a lot of rebuilding to do.
Will Pederson get another job? With Joe Douglas running the show in New York, I'm sure the Jets will take a hard look at him. Both Pederson and Douglas were on the Eagles when they won a Super Bowl, so they have a close relationship.
So after a dumpster fire of a season, Doug Pederson is gone after winning a Super Bowl three years ago. I guess the lesson to be learned is never play for the future.
