Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni gets flowers thrown at him after loss to Chargers (Video)

The fan base of the Philadelphia Eagles may be done with Nick Sirianni as their head coach.

After the Philadelphia Eagles lost 27-24 at Lincoln Financial Field to the Los Angeles Chargers and dropped to 3-6 on the season, fans showed their frustration with the first year head coach by throwing a bouquet of flowers at him.

This may have resulted from the one press conference where Sirianni talked about how the team was like a garden and a bunch of flowers needing to be nurtured and watered; which made many wonder if he had lost his mind and lost control of the team.

This kind of behavior is expected from the Eagles fan base. After all, they are the same ones who have boo’ed Santa Claus.

Even so, throwing things at anyone never results in things ending well, even if the coach isn’t performing well.
