The Philadelphia Eagles are set to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl this season after beating the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s conference championship game.
Yet despite that, and the fact that the Eagles beat the New York Giants three times on their way there, one Giants player isn’t a believer in Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni.
During an appearance on NFL Networks’s “Good Morning Football” on Thursday, Giants safety Julian Love said that Sirianni is “in for a free ride” and simply has to “not get in the way” of his players.
“He’s a guy who really is doing a great job because he’s not getting in the way of his team,” Love said. “… He’s in for a free ride right now. You guys can coach this team.”
While it’s true that the Eagles have assembled a well-rounded roster, finishing the regular season ranked third in the NFL in scoring offense and second in scoring defense, Sirianni probably deserves some credit for that — particularly on the offensive side of the ball. The former offensive coordinator has built a successful unit around Jalen Hurts, a second-round draft pick who many believed would never be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
The Eagles went 4-11-1 in Doug Pederson’s final season with the team. Since Sirianni took over, it’s now 25-12, including the playoffs, with consecutive postseason appearances. Sirianni has won four of his five matchups against the Giants.
No surprise, most fans are criticizing Love for his take.
“Julian Love hopping on a show after losing by 31 (4 touchdowns and a field goal) to talk s–t is embarrassing,” Bootleg Fantasy Football tweeted. “Regardless of what you think of the coach, they absolutely beat the brakes off you. Have some dignity.”
“So all these teams are getting trounced by a coachless team?” another fan wrote. “Sounds real bad for the NFL.”
The one thing Love’s appearance almost certainly accomplished: giving the Eagles a little extra motivation when they face their division rival next season.
