Doug Pederson’s mush-mouth response yesterday to the idiotic Carson Wentz controversy points up the fact that he may be on thin ice as Eagles coach.

The bloom from the Super Bowl win in 2018 has been tarnished of late.

And as they say:

NFL stands for Not For Long.

So, who would take Pederson’s place?

The NFL’s oldest practice squad player, at 41, Josh McCown is viewed as a future head coach.

He recently got snagged as the Houston Texans back-up to Deshaun Watson.

Before that he was working from home as an Eagles emergency QB.

He has started or been a backup in many systems and has impressed countless coaches.

Already coaching his sons in high school, McCown seems to be on a path to make an impact on the NFL sidelines.

Current boss Pederson was a longtime NFL backup who became an NFL head coach after time on the sidelines at the high school level. A road map exists.
