Late in last night’s game, Nick Sirianni had a profane message for the Dallas sideline

Late in the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s win over the Cowboys, Eagles coach Nick Sirianni had a message for the Dallas sideline.

“That’s game,” he yelled. “Fuck you!”

After the game, Sirianni was asked whether he was upset that the Cowboys had called a late time out when the game was in hand for Philly. He was upset, but not about that.

“I was just mad about — I’m always going to stick up for our guys,” Sirianni told reporters. “I get animated. He should have called timeout right there, right, to keep the game going.

“I was mad about the extracurricular activity. Hey, I’m always going to stick up for our guys. You saw me, you may have seen me in the Jets game this preseason and they hit Jalen [Hurts] late out of bounds and I reacted very similar. I’m sure we weren’t angels in that confrontation there. I’m sure we had something to do with that a little bit as well.

“And there was a little scuffle right there, and I’m just going to stick up for our guys. That’s just who I am. I love these guys. This is my family. I have a great family at home, great parents, great wife, great kids, great brothers, but this is my other family. Just like when my brother’s team was 0-2 to start off and somebody was making fun of my brother when I was in 6th grade when he was a senior and I stuck up for him in that scenario, I’m going to stick up for my guys in this scenario.

“I know they know I got their back. I know they got my back, and that’s what a team is. I love being part of a team. It’s so special. I’m 41 years old and still part of a team. That’s unbelievable and that’s a great feeling.”

Indeed it was. It may not have been a great feeling for the folks who can read lips to get that seven-letter message from Sirianni, but that’s probably something they were hearing all night long from the fans in the stands behind them.

  1. Act like you’ve been there before. Comparing extra shoving and pushing (after Kelce made the late hit and the Dallas guy wasn’t having it) to sticking up for your brother when you were 11 years old to justify immature behavior is just silly. Still 11 games to go…I’d probably refrain from telling your biggest rival to F’off after barely hanging on to beat them at home with their backup QB. You can bet that comment will be on the board when Philly heads to Dallas on Christmas Eve

  2. Dude is a great coach and play caller. I wish the Colts would’ve kept him and let Frank go.

  3. That’s pretty pathetic. Spends paragraphs excusing himself from any responsibility to be dignified.

    You’re not 6, Nick, and you’re not a “member of a team”. You’re supposed to be a leader and role model. Instead you sound like any other entitled person of privilege letting themselves off the hook.

    It was a week 6 game against an opponent starting their backup QB. At least act like you’ve been there.

  4. Remember all the people (some of whom, yes, were Eagles fans) who ragged on this guy nonstop because he was nervous and stumbling his words a bit during his introductory press conference?

    Well so much for that. Their roster is loaded but he has proven to this point to be an excellent hire for them. I’m sure plenty of Indy fans are wishing they kept him over Frank Reich at this point.

  5. I wouldn’t be happy if it was the Packer sideline he was yelling at, but considering it’s the cowboys, more power to him.

  6. When your starting running back is your defacto starting QB, he should be treated defensively like a running back and should be pounded with all due disrespect. You are gaming the system as is Baltimore and Arizona. It is time your fake QB’s are ruled out of the game after the sixth rushing attempt.

    That’s interesting. Josh Allen had 12 attempts against the Chiefs on 10/16/22.

    Allen had 11 on 10/2/2022 and 10 on 9/8/2022

    Daniel Jones has had at least six attempts in each game this season: 6, 10, 9, 6, 10 and 6.

    Marcus Mariota has had six or more in every game but week four and he had five attempts in that game.

    Joe Burrow had six attempts in week one.

    You want these guys ruled OUT of the game for being FAKE quarterbacks?

  8. I thought the Cowboys defense was supposed to show us that the Eagles weren’t that good. Did Parsons even play? Didn’t hear his name very much.

    An NFL team needs a “comment on the board” from an opposing coach to get up for a game against a division rival? So you are saying they will try harder next time because of this ? Why didn’t they just try hard this time ?
