"My hat goes off to both of those gentleman," Pederson said of Walch and Groh. "For guys to basically come off our practice roster to be elevated to game status, that's not easy to do. And these two gentlemen did an outstanding job. Both will be back."
Pederson was also asked about defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in Wednesday's press conference, who is interviewing for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job. Ironically, Pederson was less firm on Schwartz's return than he was on the return of Groh and Walch.
"I love the fact that guys around the league and teams around the league are looking to me staff for possible head coaching candidates," Pederson said of Schwartz. "I think he would make a tremendous head coach again."
Doug Pederson will join Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Friday, January 10th at 9am.
