Nick Sirianni Is The Perfect Coach For The Philadelphia Eagles

Written by Tony Ghaul

Nick Sirianni has taken the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl in just his second season as Head Coach. He’s becoming more popular than Rocky Balboa and Philly cheesesteaks.

The chest-bumping, sideline-prancing, expletive-tossing head coach of has won over a tough city that questioned his credentials and mocked his introductory news conference. Sirianni leads the way with his swagger and passion.

He made a poor first impression with Eagles fans and the local media. Sirianni came across as nervous, rambling and overmatched in a video conference. He wasn’t used to the large media coverage in Philadelphia.

Sirianni was able to set the tone of the team’s goal and win over his players. He brought in a culture and let everyone know what’s expected.

It got off to a rough start for Sirianni. In his first season, the Eagles got off to a 2-5 start. He then told everyone about his speech to the players, that included a flower analogy. Some fans and media began calling for his job.

The players got the analogy and that’s all that matters. The Eagles beat the Lions on the road in their next game but lost at home to the Chargers on Nov. 7, 2021. As Sirianni was leaving the field after that loss, a fan threw a bouquet of flowers at him. He stopped, looked up and said a few words before being escorted under the tunnel.

The Eagles went 6-2 the rest of the way and earned a wild-card berth. They were blown out by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs but opened this season 8-0 and were 13-1 before Jalen Hurts missed two games with a shoulder injury.

Hurts has developed into finalist for AP NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year under Sirianni. He and his staff designed an offense that can dominate opponents on the ground or in the air.

Sirianni is Philly through and through. From cursing at officials to screaming at opposing coaches to loving on his players, he continues to prove that he’s the perfect fit for this team and city. His  “dawg mentality” is echoed by his players.

His team and this town have his back. Nick Sirianni has the Eagles in the Super Bowl! It’s a Philly Thing.
