Eagles coach Nick Sirianni is sanguine about tonight’s game at KC.
“Our job is to get prepared for this game,” he said Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, who was outcoached by the Chiefs’ Andy Reid in last February’s Superf Bowl.
“What happened in the past, happened in the past,” Sirianni continued.
“We’ll learn from our mistakes. We’ll get better from the things we did well. But I would be lying if I didn’t say, ‘Argh, if this would have happened or that would have happened,’ once in a while. But we’re not dwelling on it.”
Reid is so proficient at winning after a week off — he is 31-6 after a bye, including the postseason — that many coaches have tried to get some tips from him. But not even Reid can pinpoint the reasons behind his remarkable record, which includes a 13-1 mark during 14 regular seasons in Philadelphia and a 9-3 record in postseason games.
“I get asked that because we’ve had success,” Reid said, “but we just go play. I don’t know. We’ve had good players.”
