Eagles coach Doug Pederson is headed to the Combine in Indy, and he appeared on the team’s podcast to answer a few questions:

Speed:  “Isn’t that is what football is about? Speed and explosiveness? I don’t think you can ever have enough, right? You can never have enough speed, you can never have enough explosive players, plays, whatever it might be in all three phases,” Pederson said. “It is something we have to evaluate as coaches this spring.”

Coaching hires:  Andrew Breiner: “Someone who can fill that mold of pass-game analyst. Which is what I want him to do — I want him to analyze our passing offense. He doesn’t have the pressure of coaching a room. He can study our offense, study offenses around the league, he can study college offenses and bring us some fresh ideas and thoughts on things he has done in his career.”

Rich Scangarello: “Really, really was intrigued by his resume and where he has come from. How he has worked himself up in this league. He was a coordinator last year in Denver. He has worked with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. He has worked with quarterbacks, he was with Kyle in Atlanta. He started as a quality control coach like myself.” 

Press Taylor: “I think it is important that we don’t disrupt that room. I don’t want to disrupt the quarterback room. I think Carson is in a great place right now athletically and mentally as a quarterback. So I don’t want to disrupt that room, but I do want to give Press a chance to have more of a finger print on the game plans.”

Aaron Moorehead: “Former wide receiver in this league, came from Vanderbilt obviously, coaching wide receivers there, has been around some of the top — he’s been around Peyton Manning in Indy. He has seen this league, he knows how to play in this league, he knows how to coach in this league.”

Duce Staley: “He is the assistant head coach, let’s not forget that,” Pederson said. “He is my right-hand guy.”
