How Things Change

I like to look back from time to time. It is interesting to see just how much things can change in a year.

Last June I wrote a piece about Doug Pederson and whether we would see his offense develop an identity. Look at some questions I asked.

Can Pederson gameplan well?

Will he feed a hot hand?

Will he stop calling quick screens now that he has WRs who can actually run routes and catch the ball?

How creative will Pederson be?

Pederson did a pretty good job of answering those, huh?

He wasn’t just good with gameplans, he was great. Pederson proved to be masterful with his ability to figure out what would work each week.

The Eagles tended to spread the ball around. There were some times when the Eagles would feed the ball to a player, especially on specific drives.

I was not a fan of the WR screens in 2016 and thankfully Pederson used them less. The Eagles threw the ball more aggressively in 2017. It turns out that having real receivers did make a difference.

As for creative, don’t take my word for it.

Coaches, analysts and football writers love the Eagles. They love Pederson and the offense that he and his staff put together. I think they love the X’s and O’s, but also the fact Pederson is willing to praise other teams and coaches. He has given credit to Chip Kelly multiple times. Pederson gains nothing from that. He’s just being open and honest.

If you ranked the top offensive minds in the NFL as of June 1st, 2017, Pederson would not have been in the Top 25. He would have been looking up at Ben McAdoo, Jim Bob Cooter, Mike Shula, Adam Gase, Doug Marrone and Hue Jackson.

Now, Pederson is near the top of the list. The rest of the NFL is studying him. Pederson didn’t bring the RPO to the NFL, but he brought it to the masses. Even casual fans now know RPO (even if analysts still struggle to properly identify it).

It will be interesting to see how things play out this year. The Eagles appear to be loaded on offense. Defensive coaches have been studying the offense to come up with answers, but Pederson has already talked about having his own answers for their answers.

My money is on Pederson.
