Gannon, now head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, finally addressed his Super Bowl shortcomings yesterday at the NFL Combine:
“They made a lot of good plays in that second half,” Gannon said. “We weren’t able to get some stops when we needed to. I obviously could have done a better job of coaching a couple things that I want out of the calls. Tough to swallow when you look back at that because it’s such a big stage and we didn’t get it done for the city, for Mr. (Jeffrey) Lurie for Howie (Roseman) and for [head coach Nick Sirianni].
“But learned a lot from it. You gotta give credit to Kansas City but obviously I could have done a lot better job with some of the things we were doing.”
After building a 10-point lead at halftime, Philadelphia’s defense allowed Kansas City to go on three consecutive TD drives, including two identical scoring plays on opposite sides of the field. Gannon failed to make adjustments, and as a result, Jalen Hurts never had a chance to win in the end.
Despite the frustrating moments, Gannon did some good things during his tenure in Philadelphia. Under his tutelage, the Eagles recorded a franchise record 70 sacks and had the best pass defense in the league. Unfortunately, he came up short when it mattered most, and that is what fans will remember.
