Eagles players are apparently buying in to Sirianni’s flower analogy
As Philadelphia Eagles fans were outraged across the Delaware Valley last week after Nick Sirianni gave what was considered a bizarre press conference in which he talked about flowers, inside the locker room, it appears everyone else thought differently. There were a million questions regarding what Sirianni said and if his players, specifically the veterans, would be able to buy into all of the weird analogies and concepts that Sirianni has used over the first half of the 2021 season.
Honestly, I was never completely on board with any of it, from the press conference to the assumption that the locker room hated it. If you have played sports before, it really doesn’t matter what the coach is saying. What matters is that you trust your coaching staff to put you and your teammates in the best position to win. If you trust in your coach, then he could sit there and read nursery rhymes, no one will care regardless. Now, trusting this Eagles coaching staff to put the team in the best position to win is a whole different issue, but right now let’s just focus on the flower analogy.
After big win against a miserable Detroit Lions team, Jason Kelce referenced what Nick Sirianni said in the locker room breaking down the huddle with “1-2-3 ROOTS.”
Even if Kelce said it in a joking manner, the fact that the team can throw jabs at Nick Sirianni only proves how close they are as a team, right? This morning we have Rodney McLeod tweeting gardening quotes.
“Success is fluid. You’re never there. You’re never done. You’re never perfect. Think of yourself as a gardener. A gardener never finishes a garden. There’s always more to do, new ways to make it more beautiful.”
Look at that. Rodney McLeod is on board with the garden analogies too.
I don’t care about any of this. Whatever works for the Eagles is perfectly fine for me. Same goes with the Sixers and NFTs. I don’t give a shit if the entire Sixers organization likes NFTs. Why would anyone care? That seems better than having a basketball team that’s constantly getting into trouble off the court. Let them do their crypto thing. Let the Eagles do their flower thing. As fans, lets just focus on winning games, regardless of the sport. Philadelphia sports are hard enough to get through. Why add more layers to the years of pain?
Plus, if we can get more Eagles fans dressed like flowers and dancing like this at football games for the rest of the season, I would be perfectly fine with that.
Fly Eagles Fly. Grow Eagles Grow. Whatever.
