Philadelphia Eagles: 2 Reasons Pederson’s recent snub is disrespectful
2. Look no further than two consecutive Super Bowls in 2018 and 2019.
If the head-to-head tally doesn’t convince you, look at this. Remember when the Eagles lost their quarterback during that game in L.A. and everyone said the season was over? A team no one expected anything from, a team that made history as the only number-one seed to be underdogs in every playoff game they appeared in, won the Super Bowl and beat the greatest dynasty in the history of all sports to do so. Coach Pederson went toe to toe with the greatest coach in NFL history and came out the victor.
A year later, the offensive genius, Mcvay, led his squad into the Super Bowl and was befuddled. This is the same coach that went 9-7 a season ago with playmakers everywhere. Sure, as Wagner-McGough stated in his defense, Doug Pederson went 9-7 in two consecutive seasons, but we all saw what he had to work with right?
Here’s what Wagner-McGough also missed. The Eagles went 7-9 in 2016, Pederson’s first season, a rebuilding year after Chip Kelly did his impression of a spy sent to ruin a team from the inside.
This theory can be dissected in a number of different ways, but you guys are smart. You get the point. Clearly, Doug Pederson is the better coach. No disrespect to CBS Sports or Wagner McGough, but here’s a list that proves an erroneous and unfortunate sentiment still exists in the NFL, one where McVay is superior to Doug Pederson.
Look no further than that Coach of the Year trophy sitting on Sean McVay’s shelf, one that should belong to Pederson after leading his team to the top seed in the NFC Playoffs and beating McVay along the way to get it done.
