Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was looking more like “Dad” Pederson on Thursday night as the team took their shot on Jalen Reagor with the 21st pick. If his set up looked like your father’s office growing up, that’s okay. It looked like my father’s too.
With a ton of hype surrounding the “pageantry” of team official’s setups, the Eagles came up short. Howie Roseman was afraid of being distracted by his kids, which is easily concerning for fans when the head honcho is distracted from making the biggest decision for the club in months.
Roseman was not the only one dealing with children. Just days before the draft, Pederson had to kick his son Joel out of the office in order to help prepare the space. The Eagles clearly went with a “no-frills” set up for both of their top men in terms of draft setups.
While their setups may have paled in comparison to Kliff Kingsbury’s palace or the “Quinnebago”, the backdrop was homey and familiar. Even nostalgic. It clearly did not affect grabbing the guys they wanted in the early rounds of the draft.
Let’s just hope Jerry Jones’s superyacht is the only thing that shows up the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.
