Jason Kelce responds to reports that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to permanently ban the ‘Tush Push’
Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
Nick Sirianni joined the 94WIP morning show for his scheduled availability, which is always bound to provide some entertainment. During his spot, however, he dropped an interesting tidbit: he’s never done an in-game interview.
Nick Sirianni tells us that he's never done an in-game interview: "I've never done one. I don't want to talk to anybody at that time except my coaches and players."— SPORTSRADIO 94WIP (@SportsRadioWIP) November 7, 2023
DeCamara: "Do they fine you?"

The show was asking callers to call in with something in sports they think is done. Right before Sirianni, one of the callers said he thinks in-game interviews are stupid, and Sirianni heard it while getting ready for his appearance.
Now that he mentions it, I never have seen him do one. That’s how pointless these interviews are. If you told me he did on every game, I’d not only believe you, but I’d wonder why you made it a point to tell me that.
Those interviews are totally pointless, so you can’t really fault Nick Sirianni here. The only time they get remembered is when a coach finally gets fed up and gives the reporter attitude (see 2010s Gregg Popovich).
If the NFL does fine him, that’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard. At the same time, something tells me Mr. Lurie handles those fines in one way or another. Hell, an 8-1 record is more than enough to earn a bit of leniency when it comes to meaningless league mandates like these.
I can’t imagine Sirianni having to suit up as a baseball manager during a playoff game. The in-dugout, mid-inning interview with Ken Rosenthal while his team is in a high-leverage spot would probably give him an aneurysm.
Either that, or he’d bludgeon Rosenthal with a baseball bat. Regardless of the outcome, the blame certainly wouldn’t fall on Sirianni. Both options are equally reasonable reactions to the mind-numbing stupidity of these “interviews.”
