Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson made it clear Wednesday the team is ready to move on from the disinvitation controversy, choosing not to engage in a back-and-forth war of words with the White House.

“It’s over. It’s behind us. We are moving on,” Coach Pederson told a room full of about two dozen reporters, a busier room than usual for practice. The coach joked, “Glad to see so many people for an OTA practice. Welcome.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Peterson said he was disappointed when he found out Monday night the ceremony at the White House to honor Philadelphia’s first Super Bowl victory was canceled by the president.

“I was looking forward to going down. Obviously, you know we did something last season that was very special. It’s a milestone here in the city of Philadelphia, our organization and I was looking forward to going down and being recognized as world champions,” Pederson said. “It is what it is. We are here today, we’ve got an OTA [organized team activity] practice in these next couple days getting through next week and onto training camp. So that’s where we are at.”
