How do the Philadelphia Eagles coach and quarterback stack up you ask?
There will always be those topics that exist concerning the Philadelphia Eagles head coach and quarterback regardless of who the men are that fill those roles. Since the “Birds” made the decision to make Doug Pederson the 23rd head coach in franchise history and current vice president and general manager Howie Roseman traded up twice in 2016’s NFL Draft to give him a signal-caller to attach his legacy to, Carson Wentz and Philly’s leader on the field have had both their supporters and those NFL fans who are ready to run them out of Philly.
Love him or hate him, FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd, the creator and host of The Herd With Colin Cowherd, is definitely among the supporters. Not only did he defend Wentz to his detractors less than two weeks ago, at June’s midpoint, he also took some time to rank who he believes to be the top ten head coach and quarterback duos in the NFL.
According to the always outspoken Cowherd, Philly’s QB1 and the man that calls the plays on gameday are second in the NFL. Does anyone have any doubt about who topped the list?
Here’s where The Herd places the Philadelphia Eagles’ Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz.
Finishing after the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid and Wentz and Pederson are eight names no football fan will struggle to recognize. Here’s the list. You guys can argue among yourselves about where everyone landed.
Drew Brees and Sean Payton crack the list at number three. Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers are fourth. Tom Brady and Bruce Arians of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fifth. The rest of the top ten looks like this.
Lamar Jackson and John Harbaugh are sixth. Jared Goff and Sean Mcvay are seventh. Deshaun Watson and Bill O’Brien (eighth), Russell Wison and Pete Carroll (ninth), and Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury (tenth) round out the rest of the list. You should have known there would be controversy. Let the debate begin.
