Report: Eagles HC Doug Pederson uncertain to return in 2021

  Report: Eagles HC Doug Pederson uncertain to return in 2021 Earlier this month, we heard that the Eagles were expected to retain head coach Doug Pederson. However, sources tell Chris Mortensen and Tim McManus of ESPN.com that owner Jeffrey Lurie is not confident in Pederson’s vision and that Lurie will meet with his head coach soon to hash things out. © Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports It appears Doug Pederson's job is not as safe as once thought. The elephant in the room, of course, is quarterback Carson Wentz, whose struggles have been (fairly or not) attributed to Pederson, and recent reports indicate that the relationship between Wentz and Pederson is fractured beyond repair.

Tom Brady has been synonymous with the AFC championship for the last two decades. Jim Kelly won a record four consecutive AFC championships in the 1990s, but heartbreaking Super Bowl ''That drive probably is something I might be able to do again,'' Elway said. A year later, it wasn't ''The

This occurs often in a sport with 22-man lineups. Here are some of the NFL (or AFL) defensive greats whose quality careers have, to some degree, slipped through the cracks. No Hall of Famers or one-year wonders here, just high-end performers who were among their era's best.

Fumbling a punt in the AFC Championship: Really bad.

Fumbling a punt in the AFC Championship that results in a touchdown: Beyond horrific.

This is probably one of those cases of the moment getting to be a little too much. Hardman is only in his second season, but he was with the Chiefs last year for their Super Bowl win — so it’s not like he’s unfamiliar with pressure. That said, a punt return against a special teams unit as talented as the Bills is enough to spook anyone, at least a little.

It’s still early, and counting the Chiefs out based on one touchdown would be a fool’s errand. Nevertheless, this will be a play that sticks with Hardman for a long time.

Robert Kraft reached out to Tom Brady after NFC Championship Game .
Reaching out to the quarterback shows that Kraft is still very happy for Brady, even if TB12 no longer plays for New England. It also appears to show that there aren’t too many hard feelings over the breakup, at least between them.It’s unknown whether Bill Belichick reached out to Brady to congratulate his former quarterback.Remember, Kraft said in March that the Patriots would have worked something out with the quarterback, but Brady wanted to leave. Kraft always said that it was his hope Brady would retire with the Patriots.
