‘Julian Love’ Giant Shading the Eagle, Nick Sirianni on NFL Network
Nick Siranni has come a long way from scary, double talk, introductory press conference in 2021. As head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, he led the team to consecutive playoffs. This season they have the best record in NFC and are playing in the Super Bowl. An achievement so impressive that even the Empire State Building had to honor it, at the behest of New York and the Giants loyalists.
Just because one of the city’s most notable landmarks can’t sustain a distaste for the Eagles, doesn’t mean the rest of the tri-state area will simply follow suit. The safety of giants Julian Love appeared on the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football and guaranteed to bring some shade to the Eagles. His target is Sirianni.
The safety of the giant Julian Love shelters the Eagles
“He is getting a free ride right now,” Love speaks in the program. “You can coach this team.”

Clearly Love thinks highly of the roster that eliminated the Giants from the playoffs two weeks ago, but he is not sold on the coach. Siranni spent his entire first season as coach trying to climb himself out of the hole he dug his first day on the job. The Eagles did make the playoffs with a 9-8 record but got drubbed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round.
Love is correct that the Eagles’ front office put together an extremely talented roster in the wake of that defeat. They drafted good players and also made a key draft-day trade to acquire A.J. Brown. The Eagles can dominate both lines of scrimmage, they have a great stable of defensive backs, and their offensive-skill position talent can break for a long touchdown at any moment. Also, Jalen Hurts has played like an MVP candidate this season.
Brandon Graham fires back
Longtime Eagle Brandon Graham stuck up for his coach on Thursday. His feedback to the media, when asked about Love’s comment, that is, “everyone always has something to say when they’re at home.”
Love and the Giants are playing at home because the Eagles are the team that beat their opponents in the knockout stages this season. They beat the Giants with a score of 38-7 in the Split Round.
Also, no matter how good, the Eagles have done more than just win a lot of matches. They started off hot-tempered, but then improved after their first loss. Siranni is an attacking coach, and before the Hurts’ end-of-season injury, they had scored 35 plus points against three consecutive opponents from Weeks 12-14.
It takes a while for a new coaching staff to get their team to seamlessly execute a new offense and yes, the learning process can be sped up with an exhaustive roster. However, the most important thing that happened in this back-and-forth exchange was that someone from New York made some key points.
Even the giants react for the Empire State Building’s post, “I’m only here to answer,” isn’t nearly strong enough. The most important part of the competition is the overt dislike of your opponent. More important than supporting your own team. That’s what keeps the rivalry burning, coals of scorn constantly being piled up on the fire.
So maybe Love has a belly full of sour grapes. There’s no problem with that. When one of the city landmarks welcomes your opponent, damage control must be indicated. Being the hater all the time is the only way to maintain strong competition.
