Coach Doug Pederson faced questions about the Eagles cancelled White House visit in his first media availability after the incident.

As expected, Pederson tried to minimize discussion about the White House — not that it necessarily worked.

He began his press conference by trying to get it out of the way: "This is going to be a blanket statement: I was excited about it, but we're proud of our accomplishment."

When pressed to elaborate, Pederson didn't want to.

"What you've seen and what you've heard is enough," he said. "I'm not going to stand here and discuss it."

Pederson was asked about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' comment that the Eagles team pulled a "political stunt" in opting to send just a handful of players to the White House to celebrate the Super Bowl. He wouldn't address it.
