Don’t be surprised if the Jags begin looking like some of the old Eagles teams.

Say what you want about Doug Pederson. Sure, he went from being loved to being a man many people had lost tons of respect for. Sure, he laid down in the Philadelphia Eagles‘ regular-season finale a little over a year ago versus Washington. No one can deny that he completely lost control of a locker room that seemed to respect him two years earlier.

Doug Pederson is also the only man that can say he led the Eagles to a Super Bowl title as their head coach though, and it’s for that reason that, despite taking a year off (coaching in Philly can be rough sometimes), his name has remained on the minds of NFL owners.

Perhaps you’ve heard, Dougie P is now leading the Jacksonville Jaguars as their head coach, and no one should be shocked if a few Eagles follow him to Duval County. What can we say? Guys tend to trust guys they’re already familiar with, and no one should be surprised if he isn’t the only familiar face in Jacksonville come the start of next season.

Rumor has it that we might see some former Eagles coaches join him in his new city. No one should be shocked if a few other familiar faces are running around for the Jacksonville Jaguars on the player’s roster as well. Here’s a list of some likely candidates.
