Doug Pederson knows there is blood in the water. He can sense the sharks gathering every time he goes through a press conference and is asked tough question after tough question. That’s what happens when you’re 4-10-1. You have to face the heat. This isn’t the time for softballs.
When asked about the future, Pederson turns to the past. He wants to talk about making the playoffs in three straight years (2017-2019). Pederson mentions the Super Bowl, as he should. That’s an accomplishment that carries tremendous weight and should factor into every decision.
The problem is that Pederson doesn’t seem to want to deal with reality. Jeff McLane asked him a tough question about the team’s demise since winning it all. Pederson gave a snarky reply thanking McLane for his support.
