Apparently, since the Eagles are playing the Bears this weekend, the unkind and extremely biased sports media decided it was time to start running a narrative about head coaches Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy being best friends.

Read: Stories that shaped the Doug Pederson-Matt Nagy friendship, Nagy: ‘Doug and I were hip by hip for 6 years,’ Before fame, Bears’ Matt Nagy drove 99 miles each way to work with Doug Pederson, etc, etc, etc. You get the picture.

Why this? Why now? Mere days before these teams play to beat the living daylights out of each other? How many times do the Eagles have to win the Super Bowl before they finally start getting some respect around here?

WE GET IT. They’re friends. Who cares? People have friends! I’ll bet even Bill Belichick has some friends during the offseason. If I’ve read it in the comments of my stories once, I’ve read it a million bajillion times: WHY IS THIS NEWS?????

I’m sure Matt Nagy is a very fine human. We all know Doug Pederson is. But why push this narrative now? I can only think it’s the Fake News Media at it again, whose only purpose is to destroy the Eagles and torpedo their shot at another title.

Sad stuff. You hate to see it. Sure, Matt Nagy has some charming stories about Doug Pederson (he can apparently “crush food”). But how. is. this. news…..? We all knew Doug Pederson is a cool guy. Stop trying to soften and distract him with stories about ice cream. That can wait until the day after the Super Bowl.

Philly fans: it’s still us against the world. Don’t let anybody tell you differently.

Rest of the world: I’m on to you. Keep trying. I’ll see you in Atlanta.
