Fans and the media keep asking what’s going on with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Depending on whenever you chose to click on this story, open it up, and read it, somewhere, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is preparing for a game, coaching one, or trying to put the pieces together after some sub-par play by his football team.

Over the course of a season that has doubled as Philly’s worst with him at the helm, the fans have crushed him. So have several members of the media, television analysts, and radio personalities. He can take that though.

The question is what happens when he’s manhandled in the court of public opinion by team legends? They’re the guys that have played this game. They’re the guys that have intimate knowledge of what goes on at the NovaCare Complex.

Now, even more of those Philadelphia Eagles legends are beginning to weigh in.

Philly’s been bashed at one level or another by everyone from Seth Joyner to Donovan McNabb to Jon Ritchie and Ike Reese to Tra Thomas. Recently, Brian Westbrook joined in as he chimed in during an appearance on FS1’s highly-popular The Herd with Colin Cowherd. He believes Birds fans are upset with the way he’s utilized, his team’s preparation, and, of course, the way this team’s offense is performing.

At this point, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to break down loss after loss. How many times can we say the name Doug Pederson and the words ‘bad play-calling’ in the same sentence? How long can we talk about rolling Carson Wentz out, or talk about benching him in favor of Jalen Hurts, or talk about how many interceptions he’s thrown?

The fact of the matter is everyone’s frustrated, from the Eagles owner, chairman, and CEO to the team legends and fans that buy the jerseys. For the emotional health of an entire fan base, Wentz must be better, Doug must be better, Howie must be better. The clock is ticking, time is running out on the 2020 NFL campaign, and Philly’s playoff hopes are evaporating.
