Watch Doug Pederson have some fun with Mike Groh and the media
Did you see Eagles head coach Doug Pederson had some fun with his offensive coordinator, Mike Groh, and the Philly media recently? You might want to check this one out.
Winning cures all ills. After his first season as the head man of the Philadelphia Eagles, some were wondering how long Doug Pederson‘s leash was. Others said you have to give the man time. Others, still, said that they weren’t fans of his play calling. Mike Groh wasn’t even a name that Eagles fans were mentioning in great detail.
Fast forward, and the Eagles won the Super Bowl in year two of the Pederson and Wentz era. Pederson’s, now, the toast of Philadelphia. His play calling is considered daring and genius, and Mike Groh’s replaced Frank Reich as the offensive coordinator. Phrases ‘underdog’ have been replaced by ‘Embrace the Target’ and ‘The New Norm’, and everyone’s all smiles around the Novacare Complex.
We’re even finding out Coach Pederson is a whole lot funnier than we originally thought he was.
Pederson channels his inner ‘Kevin Hart’.
Recently, Philly’s head man actually found his way into one of Mike Groh’s presser. Who knows where he came from. Who knows how everyone missed him grabbing a microphone, but Pederson had a little fun when he got to sneak in and ask his offensive coordinator a question that he’s, no doubt, getting tired of answering himself.
Take a look:
And, he sticks the landing! You may not have enjoyed that, but as sports writers, we all sure did. Give Coach Pederson an ‘A’ for unpredictability, delivery and, of course, just making light of something we’ve all talked about daily and, sometimes, taken too seriously.
The Eagles were off for July 30th. They return for full-contact drills on July 31st. Carson Wentz will suit up. He probably won’t participate in any of the contact, and we’ll all be asking the same thing when practice is done.
‘I wonder if he’ll be there for the opener’.
The victory tour continues in Philadelphia, and everybody’s having fun. Honestly, it’s good to see.
