The Eagles are well on their way to Arizona as they are preparing to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. As Eagles fans are all hopefully waiting on a parade down Broad Street, it seems like Julian Love thinks one person shouldn’t be a part of that.
Giants’ Safety Julian Love was on GMFB on Thursday morning and was asked about the Eagles and their head coach. Here is what Love had to say about Philly and especially their head coach Nick Sirianni.
Where is the Love? To say that “anyone can coach” the Philadelphia Eagles after being blown out 38-7 is a bit foolish. Since arriving in Philadelphia, Nick Sirianni has worked tirelessly to build a new culture within the Eagles organization.
The Eagles’ growth in two seasons
After starting last season 2-5, Sirianni continued to feed nothing but positivity into the locker room which lead to the Eagles finishing 9-8 and making it to the playoffs. Although they were blown out of the playoffs, that experience helped revitalized a franchise and fanbase that was still reeling from the firing of Doug Pederson and the trade of Carson Wentz.
Nick Sirianni came into this season with a complete roster due to the phenomenal job done by Howie Roseman but it takes more than just a coach who isn’t “getting in the way” of the players to pull off the season that they head.
His connection with the players has been the most beneficial part of his coaching. To maintain a culture of selflessness while dealing with 53+ players who all have their own intentions is phenomenal and to discredit that is just a sign of poor sportsmanship.
Instead of taking the high road, it looks like Julian Love let the bitterness of their loss truly get to him. Especially when the Giants’ head coach, Brian Daboll, is a good friend of Nick Sirianni and was his mentor throughout his growth in the league.
