Eagles’ Doug Pederson tells players to not worry about Super Bowl expectations

Doug Pederson

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson isn’t too worried about the outside expectations surrounding his team entering the 2019 NFL season.

With Carson Wentz back under center, there are plenty of people who think the Eagles have a chance to make another run at a Super Bowl title.

Philadelphia made it to the NFC Divisional Round last season before losing to the New Orleans Saints, and the goal is to take that a step further this time around.

But you won’t hear Pederson focusing on outside expectations with his players.

From Mike Kaye of NJ.com:

Pederson on #Eagles’ external Super Bowl expectations: He tells the players “let’s not worry about that.” He says nothing is given in the league.

Obviously, it makes sense to not worry about what everyone else is saying. What matters most is building the chemistry needed to win games on the field.

And Pederson should be able to do that with the Eagles’ current roster.

There is a lot of talent to work with, the NFC East figures to be very intriguing with the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys likely leading the way.

And if Wentz returns to form, it should help the Philly offense be a lot of fun to watch.
