Why can’t the Eagles beat the Patriots? Is starts with the coach
This view from the Boston Globe expresses a belief that the Patriots will win the Super Bowl. Here are some of the types of arguments used:
- Eagles' coach Doug Pederson doesn't hold a candle to Patriots' coach Bill Belichick. Pederson is "destined to get pantsed", just like all of the other mediocre coaches who have fallen victim to "the hoodie" in past Super Bowls.
- It's quite likely that Pederson will be coaching scared against Belichick, and unfortunately, this is bound to be a losing strategy.
- Great coaches know how to manage the clock, make quick decisions and call the right plays. Belichick does this better than anyone.
