The brotherly love hasn’t gone anywhere. We expected a warm welcome for former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson. He received a nice ovation ahead of kickoff. We also expected he’d be treated as the enemy for four quarters of Week 4’s game… Put a checkmark in that box. Once the time ran out on another game, one that pushed the Birds to a 4-0 start, we were able to love Doug again, but we could never love him like the guys that played for him.

Following the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 4 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Doug Pederson had a gift for Jason Kelce. Take a look at this one. It’s certain to put a smile on your face.

Jason Kelce is amazing. So is Doug. No one could ever take anything away from Coach. You can see it for yourselves. Look how much better the Jacksonville Jaguars look now than they did last season.

Doug Pederson is an Eagles legend through and through.

As a player, he started nine games as the Philadelphia Eagles prepared to begin the Donovan McNabb era. He notched a 2-7 record, but that’s okay. Ask Donovan, and he’ll tell you that he has nothing but love for a former mentor.

As a coach, he joined Andy Reid’s staff in 2009 as an offensive quality control coach before being promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2011 where he remained through the 2012 season. In 2013, he followed Big Red to Kansas City to join the Chiefs as their offensive coordinator before returning to the nest in 2016 to lead the Birds. You know how that turned out.

So, yes, Doug Pederson is a Jaguar now, but one day, he’ll return, whenever the City of Philadelphia honors its Super Bowl-winning team and whenever it’s time to put him in the Eagles Hall of Fame.

For Kelce we’ve known forever that Canton awaits when he hangs up the cleats for good. It may seem like he can play forever, but he won’t. Still, one thing is certain. Both he and Doug have given us enough memories to last for a lifetime.
