After the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night football, Doug Pederson said that giving up play calling is “on the table”. In Eagles head coach Doug Pederson’s Friday morning press conference he confirmed he will be giving partial play calling to quarterback coach Press Taylor and senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello.
According to a report, Scangarello has been calling plays in two-minute situations all season. This would be good for the Eagles because the Eagles offense is especially good in two-minute situations.
Another report says that in recent games Pederson has given Taylor more play-calling responsibilities and could give him even more beginning on Sunday afternoon when the Eagles take a trip down to Green Bay. The report did not include what dictates when Pederson hands that job to Taylor.
All season Pederson has said nothing about giving up play calling until the Eagles lost to the Seahawks. Does Jeffery Lurie have something to do with this?
You might remember that Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie told Pederson to play Hurts in Wentz starts to struggle. Here’s a link to that article: https://phillysportsreports.com/2020/11/30/report-jeffrey-lurie-gave-directive-to-play-jalen-hurts-if-carson-wentz-struggles/
I can’t tell if this is good or bad for the Birds as Press Taylor and Rich Scangarello, kinda stink. So, we’ll see what happens late Sunday afternoon against the 8-3 Packers.
