Wtf is wrong with Doug Pederson? Seriously. What the hell is wrong with this dude? Why can’t he stop saying dumb shit to the media? In case you missed, here’s the latest gem from the (deservedly) maligned head coach:

Duuuuuuuuuuuude. You can’t say that Doug. You cannot ever say something like that. ESPECIALLY when you say the exact opposite at the beginning of THE SAME EFFING PRESS CONFERENCE! That actually happened! Doug started this very same press conference by saying that no one quit on the team – only to end the presser by moronically reversing course and throwing his players under the bus. Did players quit on Doug? Yes. Does that mean Doug should ever admit that to the media? No. Absolutely not. Never. Ever. It’s bad enough that they quit on you Doug, don’t make it worse by throwing them under the bus to cover your own ass. Your job is to take the bullets in public and then to raise hell in the locker room. Or freaking cut someone if the situation is that bad – just don’t say one thing and then contradict yourself minutes later – particularly when you’re shitting on your players in the process. It’s a really bad look, Doug. Alright, I’ve had enough Doug for one season (or a lifetime?) let’s move on…Read more for more.
For more on Dougie P, and the softest player on the planet, check out Jonny Marks’ day after take on Pederson and Ertz.
Speaking of these two rubes – Pederson said he is going to talk to Ertz about his “ole” block. If I hadn’t already said “I’ve had enough Doug for one season (or a lifetime?),” I’d say why haven’t you already talked to Zach about this, Doug? Like, maybe, THE SECOND IT HAPPENED WHEN YOU BENCHED HIM FOR HIS ATROCIOUS LACK OF EFFORT/TOUGHNESS!!! But alas, that never happened, because apparently Doug doesn’t seem to have a problem with this…
Great block from Zach Ertz! pic.twitter.com/rk3xPcj8K7

I can’t even…I just can’t. But
unluckily, Pederson said he’s been guaranteed job security for next season. And while I believe this is probably true, if they lose out and end at 5-11…
Since everything sucks right now, let’s keep with the theme and talk about Carson Wentz. It appears the #WentzWagon has finally hit a road block. He’s finally “playing like a rookie” and for the first time we’re starting to hear some criticism of our fair-haired ginger. And it’s coming in waves. The biggest critique of the rookie seems to be about his throwing mechanics, which the NFL is apparently taking advantage of.
Sadly, Wentz’s issues are hard to fix in-season, so expect more struggles. But let’s not overreact y’all – remember the good we saw earlier this season. It’s still there. I’ll take Wentz’s poise, maturity, and physical talents – along with a correctable mechanical flaw – any day of the week.
You know what could help Carson? Running the effing ball Doug! As our friends at BGN said – Doug, calm down and run the ball.
Speaking of BGN, Marks joined John Barchard and me on the BGN Radio podcast to recap the loss in Cincy. We touched on a lot of the issues discussed above – give it a listen or don’t (but please do).
Let’s round this bitch out with some Twitter Dot Com action – for esses and gees.

I agree 100%. It’s all about Carson. If Pederson isn’t the right guy to steer Wentz’s career into the future, then he has to go. Period.

Dynamite drop in Monty. Thanks for letting us know that’s not what we want to hear.
Doug Pederson: We’re headed in the right direction.

Just stop talking to the media Doug. Seriously. You’re just bad at it. Really, REEEEEAAAALLLLLLY bad.
FWIW: Now that Buccaneers-Cowboys on Dec. 18 has been flexed to Sunday night, Cowboys-Eagles cannot be moved to NBC on Jan 1.
— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 5, 2016
Not that they would ever flex what will be a meaningless game anyway, but thank goodness the season will end hours earlier than it could have. Btw, what a shitty way to ring in the new year – watching a meaningless game as the Cowboys prepare for the playoffs and we prepare for 2017. Again, everything sucks. I’m out.
