So, Doug Pederson, why are you bringing the 3-4-1 Eagles back to work today even though they have a bye next Sunday?
“I will give players and coaches some time at the end of the week to relax and sort of get away and spend time with their families like we normally do,” Pederson said.
“We’re going to bring the players in on Wednesday. Want to work with the players. And we’ve got to get better. This is the time where we can look at the first eight games and really self-scout and evaluate and find ways to improve all three areas of our team. It’s also a chance to get some guys healthy and prepare.
“So that’s what we are going to do. We are going to spend Wednesday with the guys. Obviously [Tuesday] is election day, so they are going to be out of the building. Coaches are going to work from home [Tuesday], and it’s a workday, but work from home tomorrow and get back in here on Wednesday with the players.”
