It’s less than a day since it became known that the Eagles will hire Doug Pederson (above) to replace Chip Kelly as coach.

But one former Eagle fave, Jeremiah Trotter, has some doubt about whether it was a good choice.

“I said from Day One that I was a really big [proponent of] Hue Jackson,” Trotter told Phillymag.com. “And after that, you’re just kind of taking a chance on some of these guys. It’s not like you’re going to get a guy that’s got years and years of experience unless you’re going to go with a guy like Tom Coughlin; that didn’t really interest me. I didn’t think that was a great move.

“But I think they went with a safe pick. The fact that Andy [Reid] had a lot of success here and has had success in Kansas City really helped the Eagles make their decision. I think they are going to like Doug. He’s a really good guy, a guy I played with. I think he’s going to be a player’s coach. The guys are really going to like and respect him. But this is a hard town to play in. The fans and the media, they can be tough on you. But if he can weather that storm and have success…anytime you have success, that makes everybody happy.”
