Not a bad 24-hour stretch for the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator. Doug Pederson and the Chiefs offense put up 30 on "the NFL's best defense" on Saturday in Houston and then on Sunday the Eagles announced they had interviewed Pederson for their head coach opening.
Pederson was Andy Reid's first quarterback in Philly back in 1999 when he first took the job. Pederson's brief stint was just paving the way for Donovan McNabb, the Eagles No. 2 overall pick, to come in. His playing career ended in 2004 and since then he's been climbing the coaching the ladder.
Reid has publicly said recently that Pederson is doing some of the play calling. I'm not sure how much or exactly what he's doing but NFL teams seem to like play callers when it comes to head coaching jobs.
What would the Chiefs do if Pederson got the job? I wonder if someone like Eric Bieniemy, the Chiefs RB coach who has been praised recently, would be a candidate. Or Brad Childress, the former Vikings coach who is the Chiefs spread game analyst.
