It took NBC Sports Peter King to quantify just how little Eagles owner cared about his Super Bowl-winning and now fired coach Doug Pederson last Friday:
Words spoken by Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie during Friday’s press conference introducing Nick Sirianni as head coach: 2,068.
Words spoken by Lurie about assistant head coach/running backs coach Duce Staley: 142.
Words spoken by Lurie about fired coach Doug Pederson, who led the Eagles to their only Super Bowl victory: 0.
To be fair, Lurie has said a couple of nice things about Pederson since the firing. But it was odd to never use his name in a 2,068-word preamble naming his successor.
