Eagles coach Doug Pederson tries to stick to sports after Donald Trump uninvited team to White House: 'Our goal is 2018'

Agitated Eagles coach Doug Pederson is done taking about President Trump and his team’s cancelled White House visit.

The coach made his first public statements since the Eagles were turned into a political football Wednesday morning, and he took the high road.

“We did something last season that was very special. I was looking forward to going down and being recognized as world champions. It is what it is,” Pederson said, clearly uninterested in talking about the biggest story in sports this week.

He’d rather stick to sports.

“What you’ve seen and what you’ve heard is enough,” Pederson said. “We have two OTA practices and a mandatory camp and that’s enough. We are focused on today. Our goal is 2018.”

The typically affable Pederson talked for less than 10 minutes. In response to the White House statement that the Eagles “abandoned” their fans, Pederson was dismissive.

“Our true fans are beside us, we're beside them,” he said. “I can't say enough good things about what our fans have done for us. The support, the love we've felt all offseason and continue to feel."
