Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Especially to Doug Pederson, the raddest dad in the NFL. Whatever checklist you have for such a title, he checks the boxes.

Former player

Doug Pederson played in 10 seasons, longer than all of his head coach peers except for Frank Reich, who he literally bossed, and Mike Vrabel, who did not win the Super Bowl last year. During his time in Green Bay, where he won a Super Bowl and became best friends with Brett Favre.

Happy Father’s Day the NFL’s dad.
