Doug Pederson is “frustrated” and “pissed off” at self-inflicted mistakes

As Doug Pederson waited on hold Monday morning for his weekly interview on WIP, he heard the results of the show’s poll question.

Of more than 5,500 votes cast, more than 73 percent of responders blamed coaching for the Eagles’ 10-point loss to the Giants.

Pederson threatened to hang up on host Angelo Cataldi.

“Good morning, Angelo,” Pederson said, via a transcript from NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com. “Thanks for the lead in. I appreciate that. That was awesome. Listen, that just puts me in a great mood today. Already in a good mood, appreciate it. . . . Can I hang up now? I’m filling my obligation now if I hang up.”

Pederson said he was “pissed off,” and repeated the phrase several times just so everyone was clear about how he was feeling Monday.

“I’m pissed off. I’m pissed off at myself. I’m pissed off at the way we played,” Pederson said. “It frustrates me. It frustrates me to no end. We have too much pride. I have too much pride. These players have too much pride. We work our ass off during the week. It’s frustrating. It is frustrating. Blame it on me all you want. I’ll handle it with the players. You can blame it on me. I’m a big guy. I can handle it. That’s fine. But this is . . . we’re self-inflicting ourselves. We are killing ourselves. We are shooting ourselves in the foot. All those cliche little statements are still showing up, and it’s frustrating.”

If it’s any consolation, the Eagles, at 3-5-1, remain in the NFC East lead in what is shaping up as the worst division in NFL history.

  1. Talking like that shows that he can’t handle it. This reminds me of Jim Mora Sr.’s meltdowns many years ago on the weekly Jim Mora tv show in New Orleans just before he got fired.

  2. I can no longer support Carson Wentz. I tried, I really did, but he has devolved into the worst starting qb in the league. Time to move on and make a change.

  3. I’m pissed off at the way he calls plays. They re signed their kicker to a 21 million dollar contract and yet they won’t kick extra points.

  4. Doug needs a play calling OC and Wentz needs a QB coach that’s actually going to coach him, not be his friend like Press Taylor. Wentz has become worse under Taylor’s tutelage since he’s been here.

  5. If your QB
    has 0 playoff wins
    60 fumbles
    has no heart no desire to win
    started 5-6 in 4 of his first 5 seasons
    7-25 vs teams over 500
    Never upset after loses
    hated by teammates
    makes everyone near him worse
    holds ball too long
    ignores open receivers
    Your QB is Carson Wentz

  6. The eagles would be 8-1 right now if Ben DeNucci was qb that’s how awful Wentz has been misisng Wide open receivers overthrowing them and holding ball too long

  7. Just remeber the eagles were 5-6 in 2018 with Wentz than Nick Foles takes over and vs the hardest part of schedule wins with same team that lost every week with Wentz

  8. The Eagles did not turn the ball over once.

    The Giants squandered a field goal chance at the end of the first half, had a blatant drop on third down that forced them to punt, had a holding call that negated a TD, had a terrible PI that put Philly in position to score their second TD.

    The Eagles played like they didn’t care to win. They had no fight. That’s on the coach.

    *********
    They never have any fight when Wentz is qb same team wins without Wentz should have kept foles

  10. As bad as Wentz has been, even that has to fall on the coach. If your QB isn’t able to execute the plays you’re calling, call different plays. It’s really not that complicated. And when there are dumb penalties, errant throws, dropped passes, etc. it may be on the players the first time, but when it’s a season-long trend and we’re in week 11, that’s on coach, too.
