On Monday, Pederson defended his performance as the Eagles primary play-caller telling the media during his zoom meeting that he "feels good about the rhythm” he’s been in on offense. "I feel good about the plays that have been called. I even looked at the game [Sunday] and felt I was in rhythm,” Pederson said. "I’ve always looked at the game through the eyes of the quarterback, and how he views it, and how he sees it. I think it’s important that quarterback and play-caller are on the same page that way and Carson [Wentz] and I had those conversations during the week and the day before the game, and [went] through a lot of different scenarios.” "And look, not every game is going to be perfect. There’s going to be mistakes made, and there’s going to be things that we’re going to have to overcome, and that’s part of our jobs. Nobody’s perfect. By no means am I perfect? I’m going to make a decision error, I’m going to make a play-calling error, but at the same time, hopefully, I can do my job to put the offense in position to be successful.” Pederson said he was mostly frustrated with how his team came out of the bye, and his decision to not give up play-calling duties could stem from the struggles of Carson Wentz and his inability at times to hit on open throws. The Eagles earned first downs on nine of 10 possessions, only had one three-and-out, but managed to turn that into just two touchdowns and a field goal. Pederson didn’t all of a sudden forget how to call plays and it appears that the Eagles will work through their struggles together as one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
