Nick Sirianni: I’m emotional beating the Colts because I love Frank Reich

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni looked particularly fired up as he walked off the field after today’s win in Indianapolis, and he said afterward that it was all about his feelings for Frank Reich, the coach the Colts fired two weeks ago.

“I’m emotional because I love Frank Reich,” Sirianni said. “I really do. He’s one of the best damn football coaches I’ve ever been around. I was hoping that him and I would be able to coach against each other in this game. He’s one of my biggest mentors. I’ve got my dad, I’ve got [Sirianni’s college coach] Larry Kehres and I’ve got Frank Reich. Frank is such a good football coach. You don’t want to know what I think of if he should be here or not. You guys can probably imagine what I really think.”

Sirianni spent three years as Reich’s offensive coordinator in Indianapolis before the Eagles hired Sirianni as head coach, and Sirianni was making it clear that he believes Reich should still be the Colts’ head coach.

But now the Colts’ head coach is Jeff Saturday, and Sirianni relished beating him.

  1. Reich couldn’t get the job done, that’s why he’s no longer there. Saturday did a great job almost beating Philly so Sirianni should be grateful he walked out with a W.

    By his own admission Saturday does NOTHING. All the other coaches coach, tell him when to take timeouts, tell him when to punt or go for it, all he does it take credit!

  3. oh please. if saturday, instead of reich, had a chance to shape this roster before the season started colts would’ve worked you dawg.

  4. Reich is a great coach with a great track record. Irsay is a crappy owner and they can’t get a GM to make a single correct decision. The team is rallying around Saturday. That’s all, and that’s fine. But a loss like today where the eagles clearly outcoached his entire staff in the second half will be the demise. I don’t think the colts win another game all year. Then they will fire Saturday.

  5. Compose yourself Nick, act like you’ve won a game before, geez.

    Also, under Saturday, the Colts have played better these last two games than they have all year.

    Frank wasn’t getting the job done, you’re free to hire him to whisper into your ear if you so please.

  6. Matt Ryan can’t throw further than 15 yards, what is Saturday or reich supposed to do? Put a QB like tannenhill on the colts and they win the game today. I like ryan, sad to see his skills diminished.

  7. Eagles needed a badly missed face mask call to win this one against another bottom tier team. I don’t think I’d celebrated too much. This team got into dogfights with Jags, Lions and Cards. Colts get a first down as they should have, this one would have been over.

  8. Fast forward to next week do the iggles get every mon ,thurs, Sunday night game at home or is it just me ?

  9. Everyone talking crap on the eagles HAVNT been watching football this year. Chiefs lost to the colts if I remember correctly. Dallas lost to packers. Lions just beat the giants. Jets beat the bills.

    Parity

  10. You won because you have a fake QB who is really a running back doing what running backs do. You barely won the game. Your team is not that good after you scrape away the hype.

  11. Eagles fan here but Nick needs to dial his theatrics back a lot. He looks like a dope yelling into the stands. Act like a professional, not like a drunk fan.

  12. Eagles needed a badly missed face mask call to win this one against another bottom tier team. I don’t think I’d celebrated too much. This team got into dogfights with Jags, Lions and Cards. Colts get a first down as they should have, this one would have been over.

    Chiefs lost to the Colts earlier this year. Guess they are overrated as well
