Eagles owner Geoffrey Lowry’s decision to fire coach Doug Pederson may have stemmed from a difference of opinion over who should be the midfielder on the team going forward.
Pederson believes Galen Horts He gives the Eagles the best chance to win, and Lori wants the rescue Carson Wentz, According to Troy Aikman, who said on the Michael Irvine podcast that he spoke to Pederson after Pederson was fired.
“I reached out to Doug Pederson Yesterday when I heard the news, Aikman said. “What I gathered was a difference of opinion about how they progressed as center back, that’s how it felt.” Jeff Lowry, the owner, paid a lot of money to Carson Wentz, and they are in a relationship with him, and they can’t get out of this contract right away. I think Doug Pederson felt that Galen Horts was likely the midfielder going forward. How does this intertwine? “
Aikman said the shooting from Pederson was “complicated” and not only related to the quarterback position. But Wentz’s decline, and the rise of Hurts, is a major issue that the Eagles will have to address in the future. And if Lori and Pederson are not on the same page, one of them will have to go. It will not be the owner.
