Lurie impressed with Nick Sirianni’s attention to detail

Nick Sirianni also drew praise from the owner, specifically in regard to the way he replenished his coaching staff. The Eagles lost their top two coordinators — Shane Steichen (offense) and Jonathan Gannon (defense), plus linebackers coach Nick Rallis and defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson — and didn’t skip a beat. Sirianni turned over every stone in his search for new coaches.

Lurie said: “You’ve got to not just rely on connections in terms of who you know, who you’ve worked with, who gave you a job beforehand. This is something I really appreciate about him. He not only grinds on football and on connections and on culture. But when it came time and this was a first for him, when it came time to figure out who’s going to replace the coordinator you lost, he was relentless.”

Nobody in the Philadelphia Eagles is satisfied

Lastly, no one is satisfied. The Eagles understand they came up short in 2022. They are coming back hungrier and stronger — and, wait for it, what did Jalen Hurts say in his viral playoff speech? “I’m starving for this shit!” New year, same motto.

Lurie said: “As an owner, when you have a quarterback that’s an ultimate grinder and just an incredible person, a coach that’s like that, a GM that’s like that, their staffs become like that, the culture in the building is based on a grinding philosophy. We’re never satisfied. Whether we had won the Super Bowl or not, that hunger for more, that hunger for more. I have it, everyone has it.”
