The head coach spoke to the media on Monday to recap what went wrong for the Philadel - zhangzk - 07-11-2018

Takeaways from Doug Pederson’s press conference: Jalen Mills , personnel changes, and more Well, it wasn’t pretty, and there’s plenty of blame to spread around for the Eagles overtime loss to the Titans in Week 4, including the somewhat surprisingly conservative (read: boring) play calling from Doug Pederson.  The Vikings are looking for revenge from last year’s playoff and the Eagles will need to bring their “A” game in order to get back on the winning side of things.Here’s what the head coach had to say:On the loss to the TitansHe was asked about the red zone snaps on Sunday and whether there was a common thread in not getting into the endzone. Pederson talked about having some negative-yard plays, not being able to shoot the ball down field and penalties all being contributing factors.“Bottom line, you can’t make mistakes in the redzone.”He talked about the team putting themselves into opportunities to score by getting down there, but they need to do more offensively to make the most of those changes.Pederson also elaborated on the lack of big throws, and says its a combination of protection and all the different offensive weapons, including the quarterback. He said looking back at the film there is improvement needed by all three of those aspects.He was then asked about giving up three fourth downs, including the 4th and 15, and Pederson didn’t hesitate to say “we know that can’t happen”.He also acknowledged if that 4th and 15 didn’t happen, the Eagles would have put the game away right then and would be celebrating Victory Monday 3-1. He did say it’s all fixable and coachable, and that it’s not an issue related to scheme.On Jalen MillsPederson was asked about Jalen Mills and what some of the cause for his performance so far this season.“Well, it’s tough,” said Pederson. “I mean Youth Jordan Hicks Jersey , these corners are on islands a lot. I think, too, I look at it from an offensive perspective. That when you see a guy that maybe you can attack, you attack. And I think that’s what offenses are doing right now.”“He’s a good player. We have a lot of confidence in him. He has a lot of confidence in himself. A lot of it just comes down to detail the work. And understand the situation, what teams are going to try to do against you, understanding that, and trying to use that as a strength. He’s working through it. He’ll get better. And we’ll get better as a team.”Pederson was later asked whether teams targeting them deep is scheme related or personnel related, the head coach noted it wasn’t the scheme. He continued to talk about how until the Eagles prove they can stop it, opposing team’s will keep challenging them down the field — pointing out specifically, “You saw Tampa Bay do it, now you saw Tennessee do it”.The media dug a little deeper and asked then if that meant it was personnel related. In what probably wasn’t supposed to be, but really was, a dig at Mills, Pederson said that it wasn’t really personnel related, but moreso each man understand their job and doing it a little better.Later in his press conference he clarified that he didn’t think offenses were attacking Mills specifically, but rather the defense as a whole. He talked about allowing enough big plays at this point in the season that opposing teams think they can take advantage of a struggling secondary.On making personnel decisionsThe head coach was asked how he chooses which personnel moves to make — or not — related to some of those mistakes on defense. Pederson talked about this being a team sport and in all three phases, the Eagles as a whole need to get more efficient.He continued to talk about how the coaches have a tough job to take an overall look at efficiency of players and positions before arbitrarily swapping people out. If you start moving people around Color Rush Nick Foles Jersey , it in turns move others guys around, and it can get messy.Pederson noted that they are going to take the next few days to evaluate everyone, including the coaching staff, and see if there’s a change to made. If there is, they’ll make it, and if not, they’ll leave it alone.At the end of the day though, he admitted that they can coach a little bit better and get the guys prepared to play. Pederson also noted that they make these personnel assessments each week as they review film from the game before.He also noted that they aren’t making any moves at safety just yet, but they are bringing in some guys to look at on Monday afternoon and then they’ll make a decision that’s best for the team.In the meantime, Avonte Maddox was moved to yet another new position as a first-year player, and while it might put some extra pressure on the rookie, Pederson noted that is what these guys are asked to do. Especially for the Eagles, the guys in the secondary are often asked to cover in different roles.On self-inflicted mistakesPederson said it’s important for the team to understand how to play as Champions. Players and coaches with the Philadelphia Eagles have certain expectations, and when they aren’t living up to those expectations, they need to zero in on what they can fix and figure out why.He said the sense of urgency needs to be heightened at the moment. Pederson was sure to note that it’s not time to panic just yet, but it’s a heightened awareness of where we are as a football team and where they want to get to. They have to eliminate the penalties and turnovers, which are coming at the wrong time — although he noted there’s never a right time for those errors.On injury updatesPederson said that Jason Kelce does not have a knee injury , and has been wearing the knee brace since the first game of the season.Eagles Fans Rooting Guide for NFL Week 1 Games The Philadelphia Eagles are off today after beating the Falcons on Thursday night. By defeating Atlanta, the Eagles are now 1-0 and first in the entire NFL. No other place for the reigning Super Bowl champs to be but on top. The Eagles are off to a good start but this weekend could potentially get even better for them. With that in mind, here’s what Eagles fans should be rooting for on Sunday.NFC EAST GAMESJacksonville Jaguars at New York Giants: With everyone hyping up the possibility of a Giants resurgence, it’d be great to see Jacksonville’s defense just completely shut down Big Blue’s offense. I wouldn’t mind seeing Blake Bortles having success against the Giants’ defense, either. Let’s go Jags. Root for the Jaguars.Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers: It’d be nice to see the “Ezekiel Elliott is back so the Cowboys will be fine!” narrative get crushed as early as Week 1. A Panthers win would be so sweet. Root for the Panthers.Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals: The feeling here is that Washington could be the biggest threat to the Eagles in the NFC East. Here’s to hoping good ol’ Sam Bradford can help out his former team today by beating Washington. Root for the Cardinals.NFC GAMESTampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints: The Saints are clearly much bigger threats to the Eagles in the NFC than the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Bucs are. It’d be nice to see Tampa Bay get a fluky win and start to smell themselves too much heading into Week 2 against the Eagles. Root for the Bucs.San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings: I could see some split opinions on this game depending on which team you think is the bigger threat in the NFC. Even though the 49ers appear to be on the rise, I’d say the Vikings are more threatening to the Eagles’ playoff positioning. Plus, how could you want to see THIS guy win? Root for the 49ers.Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos: No brainer to root for the AFC team to beat the NFC team here. Root for the Broncos.Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers: Please keep Aaron Rodgers far away from the playoffs as possible. Root for the Bears.New York Jets at Detroit Lions: No brainer to root for the AFC team to beat the NFC team here. The Jets should also be your favorite AFC team since they have Sam Darnold and it’d be great to see Darnold succeed to the point where the Giants feel so dumb for passing on him. Root for the J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS!Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders: The Rams could easily be one of the biggest threats to the Eagles in the NFC East. Root for Jon Gruden for somehow to find a way to beat Sean McVay. Root for the Raiders.DRAFT PICK WATCHBuffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens: In case you forgot, the Eagles own the Ravens’ 2019 second-round pick. Philadelphia traded out of No. 32 overall (which they earned by winning the Super Bowl) in the 2018 NFL Draft since Baltimore wanted to move up for Lamar Jackson. The pick will be better for the Eagles if the Ravens lose, so get ready to cheer for Nathan Peterman today. Root for the Bills.WHAT’S LEFTHouston Texans at New England Patriots: On one hand, I’d love to see an Eagles versus Patriots Super Bowl again this season. On the other hand, I almost never want to see the Pats win. Root for the Texans.Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins: Given that the Eagles play the Titans in a few weeks, it’d be nice to see them look unimpressive. But I don’t really care who wins this game. Root for whoever you want.Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts: Given that the Eagles play the Colts in a couple weeks, it’d be nice to see them look unimpressive. But I’m rooting for former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to do well in Indy. They’re my second favorite AFC team now behind the Jets. I’m also really curious to see how much more Marvin Lewis can fail and still hold on to his job. Root for the Colts.Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns: I want to see the Browns continue to lose so it can be pointed out they’re 1-32 since passing on Carson Wentz. Although it would be funny to see Pittsburgh lose this one. Root for the Steelers.Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers: I took the Chargers to win this game so I’ll be rooting for them. As far as your rooting interests go ... well, that’s up to you. If you want to cheer on Andy Reid, feel free. Root for whoever you want.
