If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you’ve bounced this idea around a few times.

5. Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman deserve the most blame for this season. 

Even with Jalen Hurts in as quarterback in Week 14, there still are many issues within Doug Pederson’s scheme and game planning ability. The creativity that fans were expecting to see this season Coach and his assistants never materialized. What’s sad is there’s no guarantee that things will improve in 2021 if Doug returns.

Then, there’s the vice president and general manager. Howie Roseman may have destroyed this franchise for its immediate future. The Eagles are in bad shape from a financial perspective (if we’re talking salary caps), and as funny as it sounds, that and Jeffrey Lurie’s loyalty to him might be the two main reasons why Roseman returns next year as general manager.

Next. Heroes and zeroes heading into Week 15. dark

From personnel choices to bad contract extensions, the franchise’s future seems to be very cloudy. The Birds still have a few games left to play in the 2020 season, but it’s hard for fans not to be concerned about the next few seasons that will follow.
