The Philadelphia Eagles are riding high after earning their first Super Bowl title in franchise history with a win over the New England Patriots this past Sunday. With the city of Philadelphia preparing for what should be a lively parade on Thursday, head coach Doug Pederson had some parting words for his team.

Pederson might want to talk about this being the new norm, but his presence in Philadelphia helped dramatically shift a culture that was being weighed down by both the team’s front office and head coaches in the past. Remember, Philadelphia earned the title just two seasons after the entire Chip Kelly fiasco. That’s no small feat.
It’s an important message from Peterson. He heads one of the most-talented young teams in the entire NFL. It doesn’t look like their success is going to be short-lived. It’s now all about the players not getting complacent after hoisting the Lombardi. It’s also Pederson’s role to make sure that doesn’t happen.
