Doug Pederson pulled Jalen Hurts for Nate Sudfeld early in the fourth quarter and his players got pissed. There is a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer, saying that two defensive players had to be held back from approaching Pederson.

Some were angry. Two defensive players had to be held back from approaching Pederson. Center Jason Kelce and another offensive starter went to the coach to ask him why he had pulled the starting quarterback with the Eagles trailing by only three.

You could see Hurts even on the bench saying “That’s Not Right” during the NBC broadcast.

Hurts said after the game:

“As a competitor, I play to win,” Hurts said after the game when asked for his reaction. “You have to trust [Pederson’s plan].”

It was an interesting call, but at this point, I wonder if the Eagles players will continue to play for Pederson. I wish we could hear from Jason Kelce, because I feel deep down inside he would go bananas. He has not talked to the media since the game.
