Doug Pederson reveals top coaching takeaway from 5 years with Eagles


It's still early — really, really early — to start evaluating every single aspect of Nick Sirianni's performance as the Philadelphia Eagles head coach. He had some pretty big shoes to fill, replacing Super Bowl winner Doug Pederson after five memorable, if a little tumultuous, years in the City of Brotherly Love. He's already experiencing the scrutiny and criticism of pretty much every member of the fan base, something that happened from the moment he was hired, and he's likely going to learn a lot over the next several weeks as he completes his first campaign as a head coach.

Perhaps it might expedite that learning process if he were to know what Pederson's biggest overall takeaway was after his half-decade at the helm, and it just so happens that the former Eagles coach conveniently revealed exactly that. Discussing his career and coaching techniques with Robert Mays on "The Athletic Football Show," Pederson encapsulated five years of coaching with one big takeaway.
