PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The coach of the Eagles, Doug Pederson, needed three attempts to defend Carson Wentz of the criticisms launched Brett Favre.
Favre, a member of the Hall of Fame, said Tuesday in a television interview that the Philadelphia Eagles should have preferred to Nick skin gaita bags above Wentz. Given that Favre and Pederson played together in Green Bay and have been good friends for more than two decades, the declarations of Favre had more weight in Philadelphia that if they had come from some other former player.
Wentz is on his way to having his worst season during his career of five years. The Eagles (3-4-1) lead the Eastern Division of the National Conference, despite the numerous injuries that have forced the team to place home to 21 different players on offense.
Skin gaita bags took over the attack in December of 2017, when Wentz broke two ligaments of a knee. Led the Eagles to their first title of the Super Bowl, and was the Most Valuable Player of that game, a victory over New England.
In December 2018, skin gaita bags returned to replace Wentz, who hurt his back. Achieved a victory with the Eagles in the playoffs.
Skin gaita bags spent the previous season in Jacksonville and now is the owner of Chicago.
The first answer that gave Pederson on Wednesday, when he referred to the comments of Favre, was: “I Respect the opinion of Brett. Yes, we are friends, but I have not spoken with him. You have the right to have an opinion and that’s all.”
Asked then specifically if he shared the opinion of Favre.
“I respect the opinion of Brett. You have the right to have your opinion, and that is good. Let’s leave it there”, he replied.
Some fans and commentators who listened to the press conference online were surprised in the social networks by the fact that the coach would not have disagreed from the comments of Favre.
With a third opportunity, Pederson made it clear that the thoughts of Favre not coincide with the views of the owner Jeffrey Lurie nor general manager Howie Roseman.
“Carson is our man. Was our selection in the draft. It is the type that is going to lead us and to lead this team,” said Pederson. “Everyone has the right to give their opinion. But those are not my words, nor those of Howie and Jeffrey. They are the words of him (Favre). I respect your opinion. Anything he may say is right and we’re going to continue being friends. It doesn’t bother me one way or the other. All I know is that Carson is our player and it is my duty to make you play better.”
