New Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni, vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl and GM Howie Roseman had a Zoomer yesterday, and things got weird quickly.
The Inky’s Les Bowen asked what kind of player is a Nick Sirianni player, a perfectly legitimate question since no one in Philly knows anything about the 39-year-old coach or his coaching style and tendencies.
Sirianni spoke about finding out how much draft prospects loves football and how competitive they are, qualities he says are as important as talent.
So how did Sirianni gauge competitiveness? He and his coaches played games like rock-paper-scissors during interviews over Zoom.
“And if you guys are wondering, I’ll tell ya. I think some of you guys are wondering. We didn’t go earth shattering on these games. I played a couple of them in rock-paper-scissors. Right? That was as easy as that? Rock, paper, scissors. Let’s see how competitive you are. I’m competitive. I’m going to be talking trash to them. Did you talk trash back to me? Jeopardy. There’s different ways to do it.”
Sirianni suggested that he and Bowen play rock-paper-scissors together when they finally meet in person. Bowen barely knew what to say.
“All right. That would be great,” Bowen said in a tone that sounded like it would not be great and he’d be doing no such thing.
One thought on “ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS? EAGLES SIRIANNI SOUNDS LIKE A ROCKHEAD!”
