Doug Pederson And Eagles Are Weak, According To Rex Ryan
Doug Pederson and the Eagles are weak, according to Rex Ryan.
The former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst unleashed a tornado of criticism towards Philadelphia and the team’s head coach on Monday.
One day earlier, on Sunday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys absolutely destroyed the Eagles 37-10.
Given the importance of the game between divisional rivals, tensions were understandably high.
Following his team’s embarrassing showing, many recalled that Pederson essentially called a win over Dallas in the lead-up to the game – only to cower and back-pedal prior to kickoff when it came time to back those words up.
“We’re going down to Dallas and our guys are gonna be ready to play,” Pederson initially said.
“And we’re gonna win that football game, and when we do, we’re in first place in the NFC East.”

Ryan felt like after making a statement like the one Pederson did, the head coach should’ve manned up.
“To me, man, pull a Buddy Ryan. If you’re going to say it, double down on it,” Ryan said.
“Doug Pederson, come on dude. It’s like a skunk – you pull the skunk out of the box, you can put him back in like he tried to do.
“Well, that smell is still out there. Dallas had that smell and beat the heck out of you. “I’m just telling you, man up.”
Ryan was not the only one with some harsh words for Pederson.
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot had this to say after his team’s victory: “We don’t give a f–k what Doug Pederson says.”
The Eagles are now 3-4 on the season. Dallas, meanwhile, now sits at 4-3 and is firmly in control of the NFC East.
