Despite suffering a 27-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, Doug Pederson remained optimistic about his team’s outlook during his post-game press conference. The rookie head coach said he believes the Eagles are still headed in the ‘right direction’ despite sporting a 2-6 record in their last eight games.
“Look at the effort,” said Pederson. “I think you might look at wins and losses. I got to look at the potential of the football team and the guys that we have. Are we there yet? No. Are we heading in the right direction? Yes. Again, it may not show up right now in wins and losses, but I see that potential. I see that there is no quit in this team. Everybody’s fighting to the end. That’s a sign that things are heading the right direction.”
