Per reports, the Philadelphia front office has made it quite clear to Doug Pederson that his job could be on the line.
Things just keep going from bad to worse for the Philadelphia Eagles and head coach Doug Pederson. In a year that’s been nothing short of disappointing, the Eagles are 3-7-1 entering their Week 13 showdown with the Packers. They’ll enter that game having lost three straight games.
Should the team suffer another lopsided loss, could it be the end of Pederson leading the group out every Sunday? Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Philadelphia front office has voiced its displeasure to Pederson over what they’ve seen this year. Plain and simple, Pederson is on the hot seat and is in danger of losing his job.
The Eagles could end up firing Doug Pederson if the team’s struggles continue
In a wide open NFC East, the Eagles are now looking up to the 4-7 Giants and Washington Football team. What’s been most concerning for fans in Philly has been the digression of Carson Wentz, who has been incredibly inconsistent this year with his 16 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions.
Fans have been calling for more of Jalen Hurts, but Pederson remains adamant that Wentz is his starter. How much longer than the veteran coach continue to stand by the former first-round pick, though? Especially with his job on the line, Pederson is in a position where he’s going to need to start making some tough decisions.
Entering their showdown with the Packers, the team will also have to worry about trying to contain Aaron Rodgers. If the defense slips up, Green Bay could run away with this matchup. And if that’s the case, Pederson, who helped the organization win its first Super Bowl, could very well be in serious trouble of losing his job before the campaign even comes to a close.
