Eagles Will Keep Pederson, Roseman

The Rams, 49ers, Jaguars, Chargers, Bills, and Broncos are all in search of their next head coach. The Eagles won’t create a seventh NFL head coaching vacancy this offseason. The Eagles will retain coach Doug Pederson as well as executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman and vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas, according to a team source who spoke with Zach Berman of the Philadelphia InquirerDoug Pederson (vertical)

Although the Eagles were hoping to do better than 7-9 this year, few expected the team to fire Pederson after just one year at the helm. Roseman only recently wrestled back control of the front office after the Chip Kelly ouster and there wasn’t much talk of him getting the boot either. Roseman has been with the organization since 2000 and has a strong relationship with team owners. Of course, the return of Pederson, Roseman, and Douglas doesn’t mean that there won’t be other changes made.

I’m going to evaluate everything,” Pederson said recently when asked about potential staff changes. “Obviously right now, nothing, but we’re just going to get into the offseason and we’re going to take some time to evaluate, but I don’t anticipate anything.”

The Eagles’ first-round pick (No. 12) is owned by the Browns. However, they’ll be picking at either No. 14 or No. 15 thanks to the pick they acquired from the Vikings in the Sam Bradford trade.

    Eagles drop two spots in the draft and give up Bradford and a second rounder to get their QB of the future in Wentz… pretty damn good deal.

    Why was this even in question? Because of their hot start? They did a pretty major overhaul last off season. 7-9 is pretty good considering their division and the changes.

      Exactly. Let’s not forget that Wentz is a rookie who ended up having to learn from mistakes rather than ride the bench. I personally feel like Pederson did a great job with the personnel he had, and not having Lane Johnson for 10 games didn’t help anything either. Next year will almost surely be much better. And Howie Roseman doesn’t deserve to have his job security questioned, but rather be given a pat on the back for the Bradford trade and the acquisition of Wentz. Great job

    I think it’s high time for many of the position coaches to take a hike. Duce Staley, Greg Lewis, and Cory Undlin should be given their walking papers.
