Before the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2017 Super Bowl run, Doug Pederson proclaimed that the talent of the players exceeds the Packers’ championship teams.
When asked about his confidence on the combination of skills & talent of the 2019 roster, Pederson did not hold back:
“From a talent-wise, you know, yeah, I mean, I would say that it’s pretty good. I would say that, you know, from a skill position on offense, it’s probably the best we’ve had going into my fourth season. From a depth standpoint, as I mentioned earlier, I think it’s equivalent to what we had going into the 2017 season. But listen, all that can change in a heartbeat, as we know. This is a violent sport, violent game, but by no means and, I’m not going to sit here and make predictions and put our team in a box that way, but we still have to go coach and play games, obviously. But on paper, it appears that way.”
With training camp one week away, we won’t have to wait too long to see the team dominate on the field.
