Eagles coach Doug Pederson says ‘finger pointing’ happening to this team

The Philadelphia Eagles have gotten out to a largely disappointing start to the 2018 campaign, having dropped six out of their first 10 games played.

This has led to several leaders on the team such as safety Malcolm Jenkins and center Jason Kelce to voice their frustrations that appeared to be an indirect shot at their teammates. Although that may have been the case, head coach Doug Pederson voiced that he believes that it was just them venting out their frustrations, according to The Associated Press.

“They’re disappointed. We’re all disappointed. The season has not gone the way we anticipated coming out of training camp,” Pederson said. “So we continue to fight every single day in practice. … This is one of the things I love about this football team, there isn’t a ton of finger pointing. You might take Malcolm’s comments as finger pointing or Kelce’s; it’s not. They’re talking about themselves, too, right? They hold themselves accountable. I hold myself accountable, and then collectively we can do that as a group.”

It has appeared to have already reached a boiling point for the Eagles that has seen them fall well short of what they had expected coming off their first Super Bowl win. The team has had much difficulty finding any level of consistency this year that has seen their play on both sides of the ball titter off from last season’s level.

By that same token, the Eagles have also fallen by seven or fewer points in five of their six losses this season. Meanwhile, their offense has had its fair share of shortcomings that have been impacted by a slew of injuries to key contributors.

Nonetheless, the Eagles will have the final six games of the season to turn things around.
