Eagles did the right thing in firing Pederson
With news breaking on Monday that the Philadelphia Eagles fired their head coach Doug Pederson, some former and current players on the New York Giants reacted on Twitter.
Former Giants’ kicker Lawrence Tynes was pretty happy with the news.
Former Giants’ linebacker Carl banks actually predicted this would happen and felt like Pederson was trying to get fired after intentionally losing their week 17 game against the Washington Football Team.
Former Eagles and Giants linebacker Emmanuel Acho is more on Pederson’s side and thought it was a mistake by Philly.
I don’t think anyone is surprised by this news. Even Eagles’ owner Jeffrey Lurie threw Pederson under the bus by saying that he had no idea that he would put in Nate Sudfeld in the close game against Washington in week 17, which ultimately cost them the game.
Pederson is certainly a good coach, but what he did against Washington was very odd. I’ve never seen an NFL coach so blatantly try to lose a game.
