Listen to “Jeff McLean”Bird detection“Podcast about Nick Sirianni and his role in the Eagles’ collapse last Friday, I was struck by the quote that was shared.
Sirianni said the following during a recorded phone call with MacLean on September 5, five days before the Eagles' 2023 season opener:
“So, one thing we wanted to do with our team offensively, for example, is … really try — it's not always about coming up with new plays and new wrinkles and new things like that. Sometimes it just gets better, and a lot of times it just gets better.” He gets better at your basic things. And how do you train him better. And how do you do it better. And aside from that, what are some of the wrinkles in that? Not necessarily new things. But things that are wrinkles. I guess I would say what I would do is that This is the same way I thought in year 3. I don't think this is anything new, it's about how do we improve what we're already doing?
Offensive innovation… exaggerated!
Except I'm pretty sure Jeffrey Lurie doesn't feel that way.
Especially after his team's poor offensive performance this season.
It produced just nine points while going 0/12 for third and fourth place combined in a playoff loss to the Bucs.
