Says Tim Cowlishaw on DallasNews.com:
Doug Pederson is out after making the playoffs two more times following the Super Bowl. His post-Lombardi Trophy record the past three seasons is 22-25-1. With that in mind, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie decided it was time to move on.
For those keeping score, the Cowboys’ Mike McCarthy’s record his past three seasons (two in Green Bay, one here) is 17-26-1. He has fewer games because he was fired with four games to play in 2018, but it’s a significantly worse mark than Pederson’s. But the Super Bowl ring he earned at AT&T Stadium 10 years ago still carries weight with the Joneses.
He called plays back then. If the Eagles take the plunge on Moore, it’s time for McCarthy to call plays again in 2021. There’s a reason he’s here. We just need to see what it is.
