Doug Pederson is still reveling in the Eagles’ Super Bowl championship, but it’s time to turn the page:
“I want those guys to remember it, I want those guys to embrace it,” he said yesterday. “It’s a great motivating factor for us to sort of rip off the dog masks and no longer be the underdog, but be the hunted, have the target on our back.”
The exact date and time for that turning is 12:01 a.m., June 15, tomorrow night.
“Honestly, after the ring ceremony, to me, we’ve put that to bed, we’ve put that to rest, and we move onto 2018,” he said at NovaCare during the Birds’ mini-camp.
Pederson noted that he was at a pair of events on Monday, and said the city remains “on fire.”
“It’s great. I love it,” Pederson said.”The fans are excited, and they should be.”
“When we come back July 25th, in two weeks we’re playing a football game,” he said, “so that’s our focus.”
