Eagles HC Doug Pederson is now your favorite motivational speaker
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson might be the guy you want to for you up for whatever you need to be fired up for.
By now, the Philadelphia Eagles are done celebrating their NFC Championship win, and players and coaches have shifted their attention to Super Bowl LII. Head coach Doug Pederson isn’t going to allow them to handle this moment any other way. Fans don’t work that way though. Fans of this great team are still celebrating what they saw on Championship Sunday, and they may do so throughout the end of the week.
It appears that football fans don’t hold themselves accountable to the 24-hour rule in victory.
The head coach makes a statement.
The vibe of an NFL locker room may be a feeling that some never witness. Think of the Eagles locker room this way. Once the NFC Championship Game was over and the George Halas Trophy had been celebrated, their locker room turned into the best block party that you’ve ever been to. It was like a party bus with a Soul Train Line. Perhaps the most electric moment, however, was Coach Pederson’s postgame speech.
Here’s a clip.

Not only is he being honored by the Maxwell Club, he’s probably a shoo-in for the NFL’s head coach of the year award. Just look at the maturation process we’ve seen just this season.
He’s become quite the playcaller. He’s definitely been the author of some very poignant statements during his press conferences.
You have to think back to moments like Carson Wentz‘s injury. Hope was seemingly lost, and fans were down and out. Then, it was Coach Pederson who stepped to the podium and reminded us of all the injuries the Eagles had sustained in 2017 and how they continued to battle and win despite all of them.

Heads were no longer hanging. Everyone put their chin up, and it was that day, if you hadn’t already realized it, that assured us that Philly had the right man for the job. Philly went on to win every game that they actually tried to win, and here we are.
‘The Birds’ are Super Bowl bound, and we have Coach Pederson and his team to thank for that.
