From the outside perspective, at least, Doug Pederson might not be thought of as the toughest guy. But you can be assured that the Philadelphia Eagles head coach is not afraid to yell at his players. Just take this mic’d up video clip from last week’s Eagles-49ers game, for example.
We’re going backwards, dammit. Let’s go. Before I lose my frickin’ mind, we better figure this shit out! Let’s go offense, PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS!
Oh snap. Don’t piss off Doug.
Pederson’s had a few notable moments like this during all the Eagles practices I’ve attended during his tenure. It’s not like he’s yelling at the players like this every day, but he will get aggressive when it’s needed.
Eagles coaches/officials have been adamant Pederson knows how and when to push the players' buttons. Just not visible often. Here you go. https://t.co/QKLdg0BO5l— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 3, 2017
The Eagles’ big selling point of the Pederson hire was that he had “emotional intelligence.”
So far, Pederson has seemingly done a good job of walking the line between being well-liked and being well-respected.
This Eagles team seems to have a really good #culture going on. Winning obviously helps a lot with that. Pederson deserves credit as well.
Here’s the full mic’d up video of Pederson from Sunday.
