Doug Pederson of the Jaguars is greeted warmly upon his return to Philadelphia, and Jalen Hurts expresses his support.

All week, Doug Pederson tried to downplay his return to Philadelphia. But not even Pederson could dismiss what he done for the Philadelphia Eagles franchise and everyone who contributed to the Eagles ending a 57-year championship drought and winning their first Super Bowl.

In the aftermath of the Jaguars’ 29-21 loss to the Eagles, Pederson attempted to downplay his return to the stadium, where a statue sits in the Pepsi Gate in the north end zone for fans to view. When a coach has done enough for a community, it’s difficult to turn the page.

After the game, Pederson remarked, “It was fantastic to see a lot of folks, but at the end of the day, I have a job to do and get the Jags ready to play.” “It was excellent to see a lot of people when you spend as much time here as we did, do the things we did.”

Pederson was well-liked by both the players and the media in a city desperate for a Super Bowl victory. The players that wore midnight green over his five years as head coach undoubtedly gained respect for him.

With the Jaguars, a squad that gave the Eagles all they could handle early on Sunday, Pederson is starting a new chapter in his life. Before Philadelphia’s momentum changed, Jacksonville had a 14-0 lead in the pouring rain, but the Jaguars still had a chance to tie the game with less than two minutes remaining.

The Jaguars were doomed by their five turnovers on Sunday, which were reminiscent of the dismal team from the previous year. These Jaguars, who are.500 after four games, have faith in their coach and are certain that his approach will alter Jacksonville’s culture.
