Doug Pederson explains why Eagles signed Jordan Matthews Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has been in a much better mood this week Youth Cameron Johnston Jersey , and whether it’s because he doesn’t have to field a dozen question about Carson Wentz’s return, or because he has his QB back in the first place, let’s just say the coach is smiling wider these days.Pederson spoke to the media ahead of taking the field to talk Colts prep and injury concerns moving forward.On Carson Wentz’s returnPederson was asked about Wentz’s preparation and the head coach talked about being excited to see how he’s progressed with this offseason’s work.He also talked about the QB’s eventual first hit, and noted that “I hope it’s not a hard one” but that it gives confidence to the player who has been out for awhile. Having to get back up and see that you are ok goes a long way in getting back into the swing of things.On Jordan Matthews coming backDoug Pederson didn’t want to get into too many specifics about how Jordan Matthews will be used now that he’s been re-signed. He did say that Matthews “looked good in the workout, he’s healthy” and that they team is excited to get him back.The head coach said they didn’t see any lingering hamstring issues during Matthew’s workout yesterday and the medical team didn’t have any concerns.Pederson wouldn’t really talk about whether they’d put Matthews on the inside or outside, and said it’s challenging to give an answer since they so often move the guys around. He talked about Nelson Agholor being a big part of the offense in both spots, and has done a great job blocking in the run game too, so moving him around has been beneficial.He also talked about Matthews’ familiarity with the coaching staff, offense, and quarterback — especially with the receiver only being gone one season. It’s just a matter of catching him up and getting him ready to go for Sunday.Wentz had no impact on bringing Matthews back, but Pederson did say their friendship is a huge deal. He also lauded his leadership skills in the locker room and during practice.On Colts prepPederson said he’s excited to see Frank Reich again this weekend, and he’s aware of some of the advantages the former Eagles OC might have on Sunday. He noted however, that those advantages work both ways, and that they are seeing some familiar looks from the Colts’ offense, and their DC came from Dallas, so there’s some familiarity there too.Pederson also talked a little about Andrew Luck, calling him an exciting quarterback to watch, and someone who looks like he’s getting stronger each week.Injury updates Jay Ajayi is day-to-day and they will see where he’s at near the end of the week.Darren Sproles is also day-to-day, but is a bit of a longer situation than Ajayi.Alshon Jeffery is back to 11-on-11 this week which is a big first step.Mike Wallace isn’t for sure done for the season, but is definitely week-to-week. I know nobody wants an optimistic look at this Eagles team right now. No one is in the mood to be cheered up. Like you, I know the Birds’ 2018 season likely ended with their 27-20 loss to the Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday night.As you read this, don’t be under the impression I’m deluding myself. I realize Football Oustiders now has the Eagles at 16.0% to make the playoffs this year, below Dallas’ 17.3% and Washington’s 75.0%. In fact, only six NFC teams have lower odds to make the playoffs: the Falcons (10.7%), Lions (0.7%), Buccaneers (0.7%), Giants (0.3%) Color Rush Nate Gerry Jersey , 49ers (0.1%) and Cardinals (0.0%). But as we look back in franchise history, it wasn’t so long ago that the Eagles faced an even more dire set of circumstances and, miraculously, still made the playoffs.The 2006 Eagles were two years removed from their Super Bowl loss to the Patriots. After a stirring victory against Dallas in the T.O. Return/Lito Sheppard game in Week 5 ran their record to 4-1, the Eagles embarked on a three-game losing streak and lost five of six to fall to 5-6 on the season. Not only that, in their Week 11, 31-13 home loss to the Tennessee Titans, the team lost quarterback Donovan McNabb for the season with a knee injury.So, with just five weeks left in the season, the Eagles had to win out and were without their franchise QB. Instead Jeff Garcia took over signal-calling duties. The Eagles also had a tough task facing them over the last month of the season, with three straight road games against divisional opponents at a time when the NFC East was a bit stronger than it is now.And yet, they did it. The Eagles won their last five games, three straight division games on the road, and won the freaking NFC East.

They then beat the Giants in a wild card match-up at home and then fell to the Saints in the divisional round in New Orleans the following week, ending their season.They started with a Week 13 win against the 6-5 Carolina Panthers at home 27-24, to even their record at 6-6. They then built up a 21-6 lead over the 4-8 Washington Redskins before holding on by their fingernails, 21-19. With their record at 7-6, the Birds went to New Jersey for a must-win game against the 7-6 Giants. Entering the 4th quarter with a 14-13 lead, the Eagles pulled away, scoring 22 points in the final quarter to win 36-22.Their final divisional match-up would be the last big test. The 8-6 Eagles went into Dallas to play the Bill Parcells-led Cowboys, who were ahead of them in the division at 9-5. But a win would give the Eagles the season sweep and the tie-breaker. Garcia and the Birds never took their feet off the gas, dominating Dallas 23-7, and finished off the season with a home win against the 7-8 Falcons 24-17 to earn the NFC East title at 10-6.The Eagles would then beat the Giants at the Linc on a David Akers 38-yard field goal as time expired to win a nail-biter 23-20......before fallilng to a more talented Saints team in New Orleans, 27-24 in the Divisional Round.That was the game that also featured the Sheldon Brown hit on Reggie Bush that Bush is still feeling, by the way.There are some similarities between the 2006 team and the defending champs. The 2018 Eagles have undoubtedly featured more injuries and in a more concentrated fashion than both the ‘17 Birds and the ‘06 squad, however, that ‘06 team didn’t have its franchise QB and they also lost defensive end Jevon Kearse for the season as well. The 2006 team also picked up a wide receiver in a mid-season trade, getting Donte Stallworth in exchange for linebacker Mark Simoneau and a 4th round pick. It remains to be seen if Golden Tate will provide a similar spark.That 2006 team also Color Rush Chris Long Jersey , despite owning a losing record after 11 games, still controlled their own destiny. Winning three straight road games against divisional opponents was an unheard of concept at that time, and no one thought they could do it. But by doing so, won the tie-breakers and earned the NFC East crown. So far this year, the Eagles have played just two games against divisional opponents, with two games against Washington left to go, as well as single games against the Cowboys and Giants. In a sense, their destiny is still in their hands, somewhat.However, there are differences. While the Eagles do have their franchise QB in Carson Wentz, this year’s overall injury situation is much, much worse. Also, while the Eagles had to play a decent Carolina team in ‘06, this year’s team has to take on the two best teams in the conference, the 8-1 Saints and 9-1 Rams, with both of those games on the road. Not only that, Washington has the 2nd easiest schedule the rest of the way, so even if they struggle over the next few weeks, that may not necessarily translate into losses for them. The Eagles have two more games in hand than the 2006 team did, but the task in front of them now sure feels tougher. Sometimes, it’s just not your year. And given the injuries, the schedule, and everything else, the 2018 season sure doesn’t seem like the Eagles’ year.If they are going to do it, they’re going to have to pull off another 2006-like miracle.
