Eagles coach Doug Pederson may not be safe.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen says Pederson’s status as Eagles head coach is not firm, as he and owner Jeffrey Lurie will meet soon, and Pederson must convince Lurie that he has a vision for the future of the franchise.
The obvious, major problem in Philadelphia is quarterback quarterback Carson Wentz, but Mortensen says Luri’s fears extend far beyond Wentz.
Pederson won the Eagles Super Bowl in 2017 and reached the playoffs in 2018 and 2019. But the Eagles fell to 4-11-1 in 2020, and Pederson was harshly criticized throughout the year, ending in an ugly loss. from week 17, in which Pederson was widely criticized for pitting Jalen Herts against Nate Sudfeld. This loss raised questions about whether Pederson had lost the Eagles’ locker room and that Luri might need Pederson to convince him that he could get the team to turn around – or else Luri would find someone else to do it. .
