The two coaches at the top of the NFL and college football – Nick Saban and Doug Pederson – have more in common than just that. They also really don’t like answering questions about their quarterbacks.Pederson, the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, voiced his frustration with the media during a press conference this morning. He’s refusing to name a starting quarterback for Week 1.“I’m not going to discuss it,” Pederson said.Pederson said he was upset with the media for “putting words in his mouth.” He then had a heated back-and-forth with members of the press.Check it out:Well….this is going swimmingly. pic.twitter.com/k3pcbF3QFr— EROCK (@TheMightyEROCK) September 2, 2018NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday that the Eagles were planning on starting Nick Foles against the Falcons on Thursday night.“The #Eagles plan to start QB Nick Foles on Thursday in the season opener, sources say.

(Reuters Photo)Former South Africa off-spinner Pat Symcox came down heavily on the batters as they failed to put up a decent show against India in their World Cup fixture on Wednesday.Having decided to bat first, none of the Proteas batsmen could get going as Yuzvendra Chahal (4/51) and Jasprit Bumrah 2/35) wreaked havoc.”So the bowlers got injured and that was a real worry for SA. But if your batters don’t score enough runs it makes no difference who your bowlers are on flat pitches…you will lose to good teams,” Symcox tweeted.Before the India game, South Africa were jolted by the news of pace veteran Dale Steyn being ruled out of the tournament with Lungi Ngidi also injured for this tie.Symcox also criticised Rassie van der Dussen’s way of getting out as the batsman tried to reverse sweep Chahal and lost his stumps.”I have no words to describe that scoring option by vd Dussen. Understanding the risk at this stage speaks to so much else really.
