I thought it was a clueless hire. The guy had no resume, no real playcalling history, came from an unimpressive offense, and wasn't able to describe anything articulately. He made a large number of bozo mistakes in Year 1, including some game-costers. Honestly he seemed like a nice friendly interim coach to bring in to cleanse of the palette after the sourness of the Chip experience... basically a holdover before going out and finding the next real coach after a couple years.

I underestimated his drive and ability to get better. I think he is obsessed with the details of football in the way that all the best coaches are. He approaches challenges with an open mind. We got to see behind the scenes a lot more this past season, and Doug got better at explaining his thinking too. He understands what he's doing and how to get the most out of his players.

Now he's earned the benefit of the doubt, and I won't seriously criticize him for a long while, even if he reverts to sucking balls. He brought home the friggin trophy.

He's the firtst coach they've had since Vermeil that's capable of learning from his mistakes.

As much as I hated Pederson, wanting him fired after three games into his tenure, this is what endeared me to him the most. It''ts also a major factor as to why the Eagles didn't miss a beat when hall of famers like Peters and Wentz were lost for the season.

Weren’t they 3-0 after his first three games?

Lol.

They were far and away the worst three wins in franchise history

lol this was doug on his end of 1H run (fyi there was 11 seconds left when the ball was snapped)

"Get the first down, burn the timeout, and then have maybe eight seconds left to start taking shots into the end zone".
