Philadelphia Eagles: Grades for Doug Pederson and his position coaches
Press Taylor, quarterbacks coach
It’s unfortunate but true. Sometimes, hearing less about a person is all of the evidence you need that they’re doing a great job. Press Taylor gets no credit for Carson Wentz‘s success and gets no credit when Josh McCown joins the team and seems to be ready overnight.
ladies and gentlemen, that isn’t because he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Grade: B+
Jeff Stoutland, offensive line coach, running game coordinator
You know it. So does everyone else. Philly’s offensive line is arguably the most cohesive unit on the team. Jeff Stoutland has done a great job of teaching Jordan Mailata how to play, getting Andre Dillard up tp speed, and cross-training the likes of Isaac Seumalo and Halapoulivaati Vaitai.
If this coaching staff had ten guys like Jeff Stoutland, they’d have a clear path to Miami in February.
Carson Walch, wide receivers coach
Recently, Carson Walch was quoted as saying Mack Hollins is doing a good job because he lines up correctly and plays hard. He’s clueless, so why do we believe his position group wouldn’t be?
Justin Peelle, tight ends coach
The man who’s been with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert throughout their entire NFL career has to must be given credit for them being as great as they are. Justin Peelle is one of the great underrated coaches in the league.
