Eagles Fire Doug Pederson: The Philadelphia Eagles have fired Doug Pederson only three seasons after he led the franchise to its first Super Bowl victory. The team was 42-37-1 under Pederson. His departure means quarterback Carson Wentz isn't as certain to move on.

Uh oh.

On December 26, 1994, the Eagles fired Rich Kotite.

Fourteen days later, the Jets fired Pete Carroll (after one season) and hired Kotite.

Kotite's record with the Jets was 4-28, finishing with a 1-15 season.

On December 30, 2018, the Jets fired Todd Bowles.

The following day, the Dolphins fired Adam Gase.

Nine days later, the Jets hired Gase.

On January 3, 2021, the Jets fired Gase, who finished up with a 2-14 season.

Eight days later, the Eagles fired Doug Pederson.

Does anyone want to wager all their Jeopardy earnings on what the next clue on the board will be?

Does Bill Murray want to star in the film adaptation of this wrenching saga?

Doug Pederson right now at his home:

The Eagles also fired Chip Kelly on December 29, 2015.

Five days later, the Forty Niners fired the immortal Jim Tomsula.

Eleven days later, Kelly was hired by the Niners and promptly went 2-14 and got fired.

Three days ago, the Cowboys fired Jim Tomsula.

Anything is possible.
