After another horrendous showing during Monday Night Football, the Eagles are reportedly considering letting Doug Pederson go.
It has certainly been a fall from grace for Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson. After leading the team to a Super Bowl win in 2018 over the New England Patriots, the Eagles have simply looked like a completely different team ever since.
This campaign, Philadelphia is a ming-boggling 3-7-1, in second-to-last-place of the horrendous NFC East. Things only got worse for the Eagles and Pederson during Monday Night Football, with the team suffering a 23-17 loss to the Seahawks in Philly.
While the belief was Pederson’s job security wasn’t in question, that’s reportedly no longer the case. Per NFL insider Mike Garafolo, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie is now happy with what he’s seen from the team, with the idea of potentially firing Pederson not being ruled out.
Doug Pederson’s job security is no longer completely safe with the Eagles
This latest update from Garafolo shouldn’t come as a major surprise, especially after the Eagles have now lost three games in a row. While the team has battled injuries throughout the year, Pederson is still responsible for how his team goes out and performs each weekend. It’s no secret they’ve been terrible.
The same can be said for Carson Wentz. The former first-round pick hasn’t looked like himself, making poor decision after poor decision. This was once again showcased against the Seahawks, with Wentz failing to get the offense into any kind of a positive flow.
For Eagles fans, plays like the one seen above have been something they’ve grown used to seeing from Wentz this season. With his inconsistent play, the Eagles are looking like one of the worst teams in the NFC.
That most certainly is bad news for Pederson, who has stuck by his signal-caller’s side all season. That may end up costing Pederson his job, with Lurie losing patience and fast.
