Eagles’ new head coach Doug Pederson didn’t mince words yesterday when he was asked if the Birds can get back to the playoffs in 2016 after falling short the past two seasons.
“I do,” Pederson said during his introductory presser at the NovaCare complex.
“And there’s some pieces that we’ve got to work on and try to get back, and free agency — as you know, you’re going to lose some and you’re going to gain some. I think the nucleus of this football team is very good. It’s structured very well.
“There’s some talent here and I do believe that you can put yourself in a position to not only win the [NFC] East, but have a chance to get yourself into the postseason and then go deep into the postseason.”
