Pederson has hilarious reaction to NSFW question slip-up

EAGLES

After a few weeks of prickly press conferences, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was in more of a talkative mood Monday following the Eagles' surprise Week 14 win over the Saints.

On Monday afternoon, minutes after he announced Jalen Hurts would start once again at quarterback, Pederson was fielding questions about his unusual success with backup QBs when a reporter's question accidentally turned NSFW.

I don't want to ruin it, so just watch this incredible clip:

What a reaction!

In case the audio isn't crystal clear for you, here's the slip-up typed out:

"If I could follow up on that, though, you mentioned the Saints and how Sean Payton was able to have sex with - have success with Bridgewater and Taysom."

Whoops!

Understandable slip-up. Success is a needlessly congested word.

And honestly that's pretty good composure for Pederson, who I'd imagine was prepared for many questions from reporters on Monday but was not anticipating the word "sex" slipping into the presser. Poised, just like his rookie quarterback.

This isn't the first time Pederson has been bombarded with an X-rated question. Remember this one? 

The 2020 season has been a bumpy ride, but kudos to Pederson for keeping his sense of humor handy.
