What if we ranked the best Philadelphia Eagles coaches from best to worst? What would we come up with?
As the Philadelphia Eagles head into their 2019 season, expectations are high under fourth-year Head Coach Doug Pederson. Pederson is the 22nd head coach in franchise history, but with a championship already under his belt in his short time in Philadelphia, it begs to ask the question: Has he already cemented himself as the best coach in the franchise’s 86 year history?
It seems surprising that someone who has only completed three seasons with a team would have that title so quickly, but winning a Super Bowl in Philadelphia was really that big of a deal. Due to winning the Super Bowl and because of how beloved he is already, there are plenty of arguments for the case of Pederson being top dog.
Some also may feel he still needs to do a bit more to take over that top spot. Though Pederson is the only Super Bowl-winning coach, he is not the only championship-winning coach in team history. He shares that title with two others, which is why Pederson is not the clear cut favorite for number one.
His tenure with the team hasn’t been long yet, which also plays a factor in where certain coaches ended up in this list. Winning percentage, fan favoritism and more are what also played roles in where specific coaches landed in this list.
The Eagles have had many coaches, but just a handful really have cemented themselves in the city and made the fan base remember them. The battle for coaching supremacy is tough, and with that being said, here are the top six coaches in Eagles history, ranked best to worst.
