Eagles’ Doug Pederson calls new-look offense ‘different’ heading into 2020
Besides the injuries a season ago, the Philadelphia Eagles and Doug Pederson didn’t have the season they envisioned on the offensive side of the ball. After making some changes to the coaching staff, Pederson says that Philadelphia’s offense will be “different” heading into 2020.
“I think what we’ve done as a staff in the offseason with our scheme evaluation, making things better, the staff hires that I’ve done to bring in new thoughts and new ideas and ways to enhance our offense, I think [the offense] is going to look a little bit different,” Pederson said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Earlier this offseason, Pederson brought in Rich Scangarello as a senior offensive assistant. Prior to joining the Eagles, Scangarello was the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos in 2019. However, he’s most known for his time under Kyle Shanahan as the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach from 2017-2018.
Seeing that he’s worked under Shanahan, Pederson wanted to bring him in to implement some of Shanahan’s schemes. Of course, just last season, Shanahan helped the 49ers boast one of the best offenses in the NFL. As a result, San Francisco was able to make an appearance in the Super Bowl.
Despite the addition of Scangarello, Pederson and the Eagles are moving forward without an offensive coordinator in 2020. Besides Scangarello, Press Taylor will help Pederson handle the duties with which an offensive coordinator would be tasked.
There’s no doubt that the Eagles are going to look different on offense with the changes they’ve made to the coaching staff and the roster. With that in mind, fans in Philadelphia should be prepared to see a new-look offense in 2020.
