Why Doug Pederson Had ‘No Fear’ Calling ‘Philly Special’ In Super Bowl

It's just that the Eagles are running out of time to fix it.

Tyrod Taylor isn't expected to miss any time - and is still in line to start the September 9 season opener against Pittsburgh - after dislocating his left pinky and bruising his hand in Thursday's 5-0 win over Philadelphia.

It's one game out of scores of preseason offerings, so let's resist drawing huge conclusions about The Future of Football. Nick Foles has been working with the first team since taking over for Carson Wentz late last season after the star QB tore his ACL, and he's the one that led the Eagles to their title. Leading up to the game, the Eagles knew they would be going through some adjustments as a result of injuries and Doug Pederson simply wanting to rest certain players, but nobody could have predicted they would go on to lose to the Browns 5-0.

There have been plenty of questions surrounding that process over the spring and summer, and Pederson apparently has had enough of them. We just have a ways to go.

Foles will get the start against the Falcons if Wentz can't go.


He has two interceptions and two lost fumbles in preseason losses to the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns.

The first-team offense, which has been missing several key players, did not score a point in exhibition play.

The Eagles battled the Cleveland Browns on Thursday in their third game of the preseason.

"It actually wasn't bad at all".
