Another Coaching Update

Finally. The world will finally get to meet Nick Sirianni on Friday, when the Eagles hold a noon press conference to introduce their new coach.

If you want to get a feel for him, Dave Spadaro did an interview for the team’s website.

Sirianni is a much better interview than Doug Pederson ever was. We’ll have to wait and see if he can actually do a better job of coaching.

There wasn’t anything too groundbreaking. He did talk about how much he believes in competition. It will be real interesting to see what Carson Wentz has to say about that.

Sirianni is a small-school guy. He’s a grinder. To him, always compete. Never be afraid of a challenge. That attitude might bring out the best in Wentz or it might ruffle his feathers. We’ll have to wait and see. There were issues with Pederson, but Wentz and Sirianni should have a clean slate.


That is a young group. And I’m totally fine with that. Young coaches are having more success than ever. Why not embrace that and roll the dice on young guys?


Tony Pauline reported that the Eagles will be moving on from Zach Ertz. He was told the team will try to trade Ertz. That won’t be easy due to his age, salary and the fact teams know the Eagles are likely to eventually cut him if they can’t trade him.

Ertz had a bad year in 2020, but he’s been one of the best TEs in the league prior to that. It is hard to evaluate him. If he returns to form, Ertz is a valuable weapon. Or is age catching up to him and his best days are behind him?

The Eagles cap issues mean they likely can’t afford him no matter what.


Senior Bowl notes

I’m starting to get more impressed with several CBs. There are also good safeties.

And the TEs are looking good.

These are all need areas for the Eagles.

Going through a 4-win season was miserable. Having the #6 pick is fun. But let’s hope we’re not this high again for a while.
