Eagles coach Doug Pederson was whistling past the graveyard of his career this morning on his regular paid gig on 94WIP:

He made it clear he expects to be back — and sounded very confident that he would be.

“I feel fully confident to be the head coach of the Eagles in 2021. The thing I’m most proud of this football team, we have been in the postseason three of the last five years since I’ve been here and that’s pretty good. We have won a championship here. We have gone through a season where a lot of our veteran guys are not playing due to injury. We are playing with a lot of young players. There is always going to be evaluation in the offseason and my job is evaluated as well. I fully expected to be the coach next season and I welcome the opportunity to get things right, get things fixed and take this team into next season.”

Pederson is in way over his head in the NFL, and he is much better-suited to high school.

The Eagles’ latest loss, a 37-17 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys that ended their chances of making the playoffs this season, sealed his fate.

“Second half, things began to unravel. There were penalties in there. You try to keep establishing the run and you get set back by penalties, next thing you know you are in a third and long. We always talk about staying out of third and long. Quite honestly, we are not there as a team to overcome the mistakes. We have some young guys that are playing and getting valuable experience and the mistakes keep piling up. Then the penalties keep piling up. We had 11 accepted penalties for over 100 yards. Those are yards you are giving up. Then not capitalizing in the plus side of the field, you should always come away with points.”
