Nick Sirianni explains the difference between City Fumble vs Country Fumble
Nick Sirianni, man. Incredible. Following today’s win against the Broncos in Denver, the Philadelphia Eagles head coach spoke to the media to talk about his team’s performance in their 30-13 victory. One question came up about Darius Slay’s fumble recovery touchdown late in the third quarter. Slay took the ball back 82 yards to the house and Teddy Bridgewater got roasted for a business decision all over the internet.
Nick Sirianni, a man of many quotes and blatant pandering to Philadelphia Eagles fans, screwed this one up. Basically, his analogy says that if it’s a “city fumble” get on the football because there’s a lot of bodies in the area and the number one priority is to recover the ball. If it’s a “country fumble” then whoever gets to the ball has an opportunity to scoop and score.
That makes perfect sense obviously, but saying West Chester is the “country fumble” was pretty tough. Apparently he thinks West Chester is the country. I grew up in Glen Mills, right outside West Chester and it’s definitely not the country. I expect better from Sirianni, who typically goes through these pandering speeches unscathed by small errors.
Slay also spoke with the media and said regardless of a “city fumble” or “country fumble” he’ll be looking to take it to the crib.
I would have went with Lancaster if I was Nick Sirianni. You could have also thrown Avon Grove, Kennet Square, and Oxford out there for country areas around Philadelphia. Those all would have worked as well, but whatever. Great win for the birds. All is well in the world Philadelphia football.
