PEDERSON’S SUCCESS BAR IN JAX IS PRETTY LOW, UNLIKE IN PHILLY!

By Max Harper

Jags owner Shad Khan laid out pretty clearly why he chose Doug Pederson as head coach:

He hopes Pederson can recreate the magic he had in Philly, where he went 42-37-1 over five seasons, helped make Carson Wentz an MVP candidate and then won a Super Bowl with Nick Foles after Wentz was injured.

Molding Trevor Lawrence into a top quarterback will be Priority No. 1.

A more general ambition:

Bringing some consistency to a franchise that has had precious little of it. It’s worth noting that Pederson took the Eagles to the playoffs in two other seasons in addition to the Super Bowl year.

He was the selection after an exhaustive search that exposed candidates’ concerns about the presence of general manager Trent Baalke.

It remains to be seen if Jacksonville’s front office will undergo changes, too, though the Jaguars did notably interview longtime Vikings GM Rick Spielman for a high-level front office position.
