Paolantonio: Pederson Is Right Guy At Right Time For Eagles
This Sunday will be the debut of Doug Pederson as the Eagles Head Coach. Pederson has dealt with a roller-coaster ride of an off-season leading up to the start of the 2016 NFL season. Pederson has spent the previous seven seasons as a member of Andy Reid's coaching staff in Philadelphia and Kansas City, working his way up from Offensive Quality Control to Quarterbacks Coach to the Chiefs' Offensive Coordinator for three seasons.
ESPN NFL Reporter Sal Paolantonio joined The Sports Bash on Thursday and gave his perspective of the Rookie Head Coach:
"I love what I've seen from Doug Pederson; he's calmed this team down, he had given them identity, he has been a good handler of a lot of adversity. We will see about his Game Calling, his Game Management and his Clock Management, you can only judge that by what he does. But so far I give him a solid 'A' for the way he has handled this football team, I really do. And I'm not saying that cause I wanted Chip Kelly fired and I wanted a change of scenery at the coaching position, I just think Pederson is the right guy at the right time for this football team."
