I don’t know how it happened, but Peters on the left is the right decision


It was a major surprise and it put everyone off balance yesterday as head coach Doug Pederson addressed the media. Rob Maadi of The Associated Press and 97.5 The Fanatic asked the coach about the Eagles’ left tackle situation and exactly who would start there. Pederson took the opportunity and spoke about the fact that Hall of Fame left tackle Jason Peters walked into his office and told him he was ready to return to the left tackle position.

Now the interesting thing was the fact that he was implying that Peters had made this move on his own. He didn’t really say he did it on his own, but Doug didn’t want to discuss the contract. I don’t care how the Eagles got Peters to move there, whether it was totally voluntary or if they had to pay for it. It doesn’t matter to me, but I know it matters to the Eagles because they don’t want to set a precedent that guys can come in and demand money if they’re asked to change. job. Either way, it’s something that had to happen. It had to happen. It was the responsible thing to do. Jason Peters is expected to be left tackle this week.

The main issue with Peters will be its durability. If he stays healthy, everything should be fine. We know he’s a great athlete. He’s not the player he once was, but he’s still a very good player. He’s 38 and has one of the toughest positions on the offensive line. It is quite an accomplishment. I don’t care how we got there, it’s quite an accomplishment. We’ll see how he does, but it’s the right thing to do.

To line up Matt Pryor there to start the season would be coaching malpractice. It would also be professional misconduct as a general manager. Howie Roseman and the Eagles did the right thing.

Carson Wentz has made it clear he is happy with the move. I love the quote he made. Wentz said, “There’s a reason they call him the bodyguard” !!!! I don’t know how it happened. I said Carson should go over there and tell them he wants Jason Peters in line with their left tackle position.

I don’t know if Carson said something or not, but they did the right thing and this is the result !!!
