Filed to ESPN: Eagles coach Doug Pederson has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to sources. He relayed the news to the team tonight after a second positive test confirming the news.— Tim McManus (@Tim_McManus) August 3, 2020
NOOOOOOOOO not Douggy P!!! Corona you fucking bastard. This is horrible news for so many reasons.
One, this further delays the head coach meeting with all the players, especially the rookies. It’s an absolute crusher “no pun intended.”
Secondly, I feel for Doug. He’s one of the nicest people in sports. He’s up there in age and the coronavirus hits the elder population the hardest. I’m really hoping he’s not getting hit hard with the symptoms.
This is not the news Eagles nation wanted to hear going into the 2020 season. Now we have to wait and see if he was in contact with any players. That will really be a cluster fuck.
